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

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



  • IB trad­ed high­er, B closed as a Bull Engulf. C extend­ed above IB. Choos­ing not to go long due to D1 QHi (as well as M30 QHi) right above and trad­ing with­in D1 sup­ply. Although the trend is up and there is a pos­si­bil­i­ty for a sus­tained auction. 
  • BoE speech caused price to drop and form a Bear Engulf clos­ing below IB form­ing a Neu­tral Day.
  • No plays for today.


  • IB trad­ed high­er fol­low­ing FF and Asia. Although price is trad­ing at D1 QHi and yes­ter­day exceed­ed ADR so don’t want to be buy­ing the top. 
  • C closed high­er but with no IB extension. 
  • Like watch­ing paint dry

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

I did well today

What did I learn today?

That the mar­ket doesn’t always wan­na give oppor­tu­ni­ties. Which is okay. 

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

Stay patient and only trade when an oppor­tu­ni­ty aris­es accord­ing to my plan. 

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?

I did well today.
