I have made an observation of my trading habits. A lot of my inability to not follow a trade plan revolves around stress. The more stress in my life the less I am likely to follow a trade plan. Simply because I want more success, to help bury the emotions. This has been toxic to my trading. I am cleaning up the mess from this toxic trading. However. I have noticed when I have a clear mind I have the ability to be focused towards trading achieving the results I want. small losses and bigger gains. The examples of stressful, over aggressive trades are SOLO, $EKSO, XSPA, where I have 10% or more loss. The trades where I have been focused and traded with a clear head and not allowed the trade to get out of hand are NEXCF, and VXRT. Does this mean I should not trade through Stressful times. No, because there are always going to be stressful time. I just need recognize for the future. That when I have periods like this, to either paper trade, or set the expectation for risk/reward a lot lower.

Hey Tim! Realized I made same trade but got in at 2.02 before it went to 1.94. Had to cut losses at 1.95 but I feel good I was on right track. Should've waited for it to turn green to enter. Still learning..
