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: 

  • Trad­ing rules
    • Use SL scal­ing in case the prof­it tar­get for the set­up doesn’t pro­vide 2R for exam­ple for FA or VAA setups
    • No ear­ly exits, either hit SL or 2R target

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 Clar­i­ty — in tune with price

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



  • Watch­ing paint dry with­in IBR


  • C extend­ed below IB and con­tin­ued to make a Poor Low with D. 
  • M5 Bull Engulf dur­ing D wait­ed for a slight pull­back and went long as per hypo 1
  • Long 15629.90, SL 15599.40, TP 15690.43 (2R)
  • E closed as a Bull Engulf fail­ing auction
  • F reached 2R target


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

I did well here even when price got pret­ty close to tak­ing out my stop on the DAX trade. I fig­ured it is what it is and I can review lat­er what I could’ve done bet­ter. Luck­i­ly for me it turned around and even though hav­ing formed a poor low, due to the huge IBR, price reversed and hit my tar­get. 2nd day up 2R on a sin­gle trade. Nice work. 


Hypo 2

Failed Auc­tion Long

Great work here in let­ting the huge IBR guide my sen­ti­ment togeth­er with adding cir­cum­stances as H4 QLo and near­by W1 demand. 

What did I learn today?

That I can be patient and let my trade do its thing. As it should. Either lose or hit the tar­get to reach a pos­i­tive expectancy. 

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

Trust my assess­ment of the mar­ket nar­ra­tive and take action. THEN… let the trade work­out. Win or loss. 

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

I start­ed wor­ry­ing a lit­tle bit when price was reach­ing my SL think­ing if I had made a mis­take. I told myself that if I did then I did and I could learn from it. Then went back to rac­ing. Lo and behold it worked out. 

Under the cir­cum­stances, did I per­form at my best?

I did well today. I could have how­ev­er added a hypo: strength from with­in IBR for Gold today. I will review thi tomorrow.
