2nd week of june 8-13. Overall an ok week, i'm not particularly happy with how I traded, friday being the worst day despite the profits, I've recognized how much being around the 25k number in my account is affecting my trading, I want to grow as much as I can from there, but I find myself taking bad trades because i'm worried about going back under the PDT. Here on out, really focusing on the backside as I primarily short, Really waiting until the names are weak and really fading vs trying to trade reactively out of the open and being chopped around. It's just not worth starting the day in a whole and the mental exhaustion that it brings. I over traded friday as well. somewhere near 20 trades? lot of scalps and was just trading nervously all day. going to really reset this weekend and come back fresh. Now is the time to step on the gas! posted the proof of all the trades from friday since I didn't directly upload from TZ and didn't post under each individually.
week of may18-22, didn't trade because family was in town. When I came back I was definitley not in my groove and it showed, friday I traded like sh*t, bad entries on trades that weren't there. gonna reset for the long weekend.
forcing trades is a surefire way to lose, I have to accept though that I will have big losses if I want to make a lot of money, no getting around that, that's how the risk reward will work. just going to keep doing what i'm doing and be aware of my thoughts and what the chart is really showing me.
well comments for the first month of may, getting better and better everyday, biggest lesson learned really was my best trades are in the morning, don'e by 11est. After that i'm just forcing trades. On friday I ended up giving back everything I made in the morning because was taking bad entries and being overly patient.
Lesson for today was for the GAP up set up, I can't be trying to short something that has more than 1mil volume premarket, Both WATT$ and VXRT$ were trading around 10mil. I ignored the signs.
