A small sum­ma­ry of how I did dur­ing the ses­sion. Things I did well. Things I need to keep work­ing on. Trade Reviews are part of my post-mortem but usu­al­ly I post those the next day.

My week­ly goals: 

  • Min. 3 times work­ing out at home + manda­to­ry cardio
    • Did 4 days
  • Trad­ing rules
    • M15/M30 entries and exits at 1st DTTZ, M5 entries and exits at 2nd DTTZ
    • Use SL scal­ing in case the prof­it tar­get for the set­up doesn’t pro­vide 2R for exam­ple for FA or VAA setups
      • done
  • No social media / mes­sen­ger apps / phone calls allowed dur­ing the trad­ing window
    • done

Yes Dai­ly review

Mup­pet Meter (1 being best — 5 being worst): 1



  • A trad­ed high­er, B a Bear­ish Ham­mer, C extend­ed above but closed as a pos­si­ble con­sol­i­da­tion. Pos­si­ble low ini­tia­tive activ­i­ty sus­tained day up although with sup­ply right there I do not want to risk it.
  • Watch­ing paint dry. 


  • A accept­ed val­ue, B pulled back to VAH but not entire­ly to trig­ger my Sell Lim­it Order. 
  • Took a Paper trade off an M5 for­ma­tion at the begin­ning of F TPO to try out a pos­si­ble 2nd DTTZ Extend­ed Frankie Fake­out rever­sal. Did not take a real trade due to no clear rever­sal on M15 or M30. They show a con­tin­u­a­tion down actu­al­ly although val­ue has been rotat­ed through. 

How well did I man­age my phys­i­cal, emo­tion­al and cog­ni­tive states?

I got anx­ious even with­out being in a trade. I tried clear­ing my head and suc­ceed­ed for the most part. Even so I did well to stay objec­tive in read­ing the mar­ket narratives. 

What did I learn today?

I learned that by fol­low­ing my own process I can work on my own edge. Trad­ing is very per­son­al and should be respect­ed as such. No one can take a trade for you. It is you and your own process. 

What’s one (or more) thing(s) I need to do more often?

Stay calm. Lis­ten to your­self. A trade lost is a trade lost. There is always the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get bet­ter. Entries…. Exits….  They are just stats I gath­er to fur­ther devel­op my edge. 

What’s one (or more) thing(s) I need to do less often?

Wor­ry…. All the stats I’ve gath­ered thus far show me I have an edge. I just need time to let the odds play out in my favor.

Under the cir­cum­stances, did I per­form at my best?

I did well today.
