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.

Keep pushing on Sebastian!! We'll all get better as we work hard! I've actually been making fewer trades and still not doing so hot. I will be taking a bit of time off in the next two weeks. I hope it helps too.

@ElleDiane Hey thanks, I'm not giving up ever! from the looks of your chart you're doing phenomenal! you're doing something right since your turn around in october, maybe take that time off to still keep in touch with what's going on while you review all of your good trades to see what you're doing right, just keep doing that! Stay the course

Well, don't be fooled, I've got another couple of heavy bags. I know I will get rid of them this week. It's embarassing how "heavy" they are. Oh well, maybe this time it will kick my ass hard enough to stop holding things too long. I am super glad that I've had a lot more wins than losses, now it's just getting the losses smaller. I will have my computer with me, I think it'll be good for me to watch and not act on anything!! Cheers!

I know cutting that stuff is hard, I think I remember talking about those at the conference. I would cut them , they would just hold me back mentally. As most good traders say, knowing what to avoid is more than half the battle. i'm just trying to keep out of trouble now. really need to scale a lot of stuff back. constant refining.

@Sebastians. I think this has been one of the toughest weeks of trading because there's so much going on and it's too crazy. It's been extremely hard to stay disciplined and you are not alone. Thanks for the comment. Happy Memorial Day weekend!!

14 May, 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. -apr 21st 2020

After a sting of losing trades I keep coming back to this page as I appreciate your own thoughts through your experiences, I thank you for the time you put into explaining exactly the same feeling that am currently experiencing. Although I can say that I have not yet found a set up that actually works for me, I continue to track my trades feeling sure that one day the light bulb will come on. Again thank you for this insight. Best wishes and safe trading

@toure99 Hey saw you at the expo. Congratulations on your recent success! I was wondering if we could chat about how your shorting is going through etrade. I had a couple questions.

Etrade is hard to find shorts sometimes i get lucky. i mostly stick to longing. Borrow rates can be very high.
