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
    • I worked out twice this week due to hav­ing appoint­ments on Mon­day and Tues­day. Nor­mal­ly I am doing well with this. 
  • 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
      • Did well
  • No social media / mes­sen­ger apps / phone calls allowed dur­ing the trad­ing window
    • Did well here

Yes Dai­ly review

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



  • B formed a bull engulf, C extend­ed above. Can’t go in off the break of IB due to VAL being so close. 


  • IB trad­ed high­er but still with­in val­ue. Look­ing for an exten­sion to the upside with con­se­quent pull­back to with­in IBR. Although due to the not so wide IBR there could be a sus­tained auc­tion and I’d miss the oppor­tu­ni­ty. That’s okay. Oth­er­wise a pos­si­ble late-sus­tained auc­tion entry off pull­back to IB high. 
  • I was con­sid­er­ing to go long after D had closed above IB and E pulled back test­ing IB high for a late-sus­tained auc­tion entry but I hes­i­tat­ed due to price being with­in val­ue. So let­ting the trade go. 
  • Good thing I let the trade go. What hap­pened was E failed auc­tion but did not act on it either which I will review tomor­row. The rea­son I let it go was that it wasn’t part of my hypos. 

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

I did well today. 

What did I learn today?

I reaf­firmed that a sus­tained auc­tion from with­in val­ue needs to coin­cide with a close out­side of value. 

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

Trust my skills. Even though the mar­ket seems it is mak­ing a move I can take advan­tage of. As traders we take trades based of high prob­a­bil­i­ty. That is the only way our work is sustainable. 

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

I think I did well today

Under the cir­cum­stances, did I per­form at my best?

Yes I did.
