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



  • C closed above IB but not with sub­par prof­it tar­get to val­ue edge a sus­tained auc­tion is a no-go
  • Looks like a sus­tained auc­tion up


  • C closed as an invert­ed ham­mer so there might be more upside first. ALthough M15 closed as an invert­ed ham­mer as well and M5 Three Out­side Down. 
  • M15 closed down again. Even­tu­al­ly tran­si­tioned to D clos­ing as a Bear Engulf fail­ing the auc­tion. I still feel I made a good deci­sion not tak­ing the trade as it would be trad­ing direct­ly into HTF demand and it being equities. 
  • E closed as a Bull­ish Inside Bar with buy­ing wick / M15 bull engulf on a sud­den faster pace. Pos­si­ble move higher. 
  • M15 Grave­stone Doji, pos­si­ble base. F reached and took out sell­ing tail for the most part but still some left.
  • G almost made a HH but closed near the high. H made a HH. 

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

I did well today. I didn’t see any­thing I liked and fit my risk para­me­ters and I stayed out. Noth­ing wrong with that. 


Hypo 1

Strength from with­in IBR

In hind­sight I had good clar­i­ty in DAX and did not go in on the Failed Auc­tion set­up and thought to enter long. But due to the lack of con­fi­dence in the nar­ra­tive I opt­ed to stay out as I didn’t think the risk was worth it. 

What did I learn today?

I learned that I should trust my instincts more. There is a rea­son why I am think­ing too much about a trade. When this hap­pens it is usu­al­ly not some­thing I should be in. Usu­al­ly in a few con­sid­er­a­tions I should know if I want to enter or not. 

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

Keep focus­ing on Process, Patience, and Persistence. 

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.
