How well did I manage my physical, emotional and cognitive states?
I did well for the most part. I felt okay. Even though having a bit of chaos in my private life I think I did okay.
What did I learn today?
That I can pick good trades but that my trade execution as well as my trade management needs work. I will include more details on this tomorrow when I do my trade review.
What’s one (or more) thing(s) I need to do more often?
Keep taking trades based on my hypos.
What’s one (or more) thing(s) I need to do less often?
Worry about one single trade. The will to get a ‘win’ under the belt overpowered my straight thinking and I took profits too soon. This trade went up to 1.9R. More if I had better SL placement.
Under the circumstances, did I perform at my best?
I did okay…. Wasn’t the sharpest today to begin with but still took a chance.
