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
  • 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
  • No social media / mes­sen­ger apps / phone calls allowed dur­ing the trad­ing window

Good Pre-mar­ket routines

Good Ses­sion PECS

Good Trade selection

Good Trade siz­ing or SL placement

Good Trade Exe­cu­tion & Mgmt.

Good Risk Adjust­ed Returns

Yes Dai­ly review

  • Did not trade. There was a Failed Auc­tion but did not like the prof­it tar­get and M30 VWAP just below. 


  • IB trad­ed high­er with A clos­ing above VAH. Price trad­ed above VAH but did not break IB. M15 Bear Engulf close below M30/M15 QHi
  • Try­ing a short 15618.10 SL 15658.10 TP 15579.53 (1R)
  • Wait­ed for a tran­si­tion to M30 Bear Engulf clos­ing with­in val­ue. This did not come so I closed the trade man­u­al­ly for ‑0.3R expect­ing a price to hold high­er for now. 

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

I did well here… I had an objec­tive out­look on what it is that I was try­ing and act­ed on it. I stayed calm and went through OODA loops. 

What did I learn today?

That I can take an objec­tive chance on an oppor­tu­ni­ty and stay calm. 

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

Visu­al­ize what you want to see. Bail if that doesn’t happen. 

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

I did well today. 

Under the cir­cum­stances, did I per­form at my best?

Yes I did
