Trading Week 6/22/20-6/26/20 6W/2L=8 Trades +$111.80 M None T 1W/2L -$41 W None T 4W/0L +$118 F 1W/0L +$35 Last week went well. I need to keep my ego in check and remember that only what the chart is showing matters. Tuesday I took two losses which did not help my mood from last week, but I kept reminding myself that those trades were over and I needed to focus on the trades presenting themselves now. This was a good week. Overall I have to watch my ego currently, too many wins in a row can cause issues and I have to be aware of that. I also have to remember to take small profits. That is the way to grow your account.

Trading Week 6/15/20-6/19/20 5W/9L=14 Trades -$127.35 M None T 2W/2L +$22 W 0W/1L -$60 T 2W/2L -$15 F 1W/4L -$74 I'm doing this Trading Week post way too late. I was so disappointed in myself and really got myself into an inefficient mindset. My wife and co-worker cheered me up and by Monday I was ready to go. I have to be cautious of these negative things since they can influence my performance so much. I have so much to learn and I will continue. I need to work on the following: -Mindset -Overtrading -Patience

Trading Week 6/8/20-6/12/20 7W/9L=16 Trades +$89 M 3W/1L +$169 T 0W/3L -$29 W 2W/1L +$63 T N/A F 2W/4L -$114 This week started off great on Monday. I had a bumpy Tuesday, but I minimized losses. Wednesday was decent. Thursday I did not trade. Friday was awful and I completely overtraded. Friday was ONE DAY and I let that destroy my week of gains. I need to remember that I have to wait for the patterns to come to me. I was very excited that my trading balance was all cleared since I did not trade Thursday and that was what hurt me. I got too wager and wanted to trade, inevitably leading me to force trades. It would have been a decent day IF I didn't take the last trade on Friday for a nearly $70 loss. That was my biggest mistake since I was eager to dip buy a panic after news which essentially made me catch a falling knife. I was lucky to have gotten an exit prior to the halt or I would have been down double what I was. Overall, I'm learning but there are clearly basic things I need to work on. 1. Overtrading 2. Cutting losses quickly 3. Trade like a retired trader & a sniper I was still green on the week, which proves money can be made even with enormous mistakes, but to really profit I need to take care of these things. On to the next week!

Trading Week 6/1/20-6/5/20 10W/5L=15 Trades +$135.51 This week is starting my Weekly and Monthly Reviews of my trades. I've been studying and attempting to trade since the middle of April 2020. I have a long way to go and a LOT to learn but I believe I'm beginning to see improvements. Here is my review for the week: Overall I was profitable but I am definitely overtrading. I really need to let these plays come to me, rather than try to chase anything. I should also be quicker to cut losses and keep in mind that if I exit a position to protect my account, I can always re-enter if I so choose. Most of my larger losses this week were due to that mistake. I need to keep studying and improving. This is such a great market to learn in. Lastly, I also have to keep in mind that this market will not last forever; I will need to keep a level head once it dies down and really try not to overtrade.

Today was a good day to learn. I've been watching the markets closely and made 5 trades today (2W and 3L) for a $13.32 loss overall. Good lessons today but I need to KEEP STUDYING. That is clear from 2/3 of my losses today. I have to stay consistent and keep in mind it's about a process, not just trading at random. Looking forward to the future!

I made 3 trades today with 2 being profitable ($AXAS & $OAS) and 1 being a loss ($TRNX). Studying has been helping exponentially as well as just watching the market. I cut my loss quickly today for -$3.80 and am proud that I did so. I need to keep this in mind as I've fallen into not cutting losses recently and have paid for them. My profit on the day was $22.60 with just a +1.07% profit but the main thing is that I'm learning every day, every trade. I have to maintain consistency and keep in mind this is a marathon, not a sprint. Thank you @timothysykes for providing your +6,000 video lessons as well as the Silver chat room and Profit.ly! What a help it is to be able to post trades and look at, not only your personal history of trades, but everyone else's as well! PLENTY more to study and I will get through all of it in time.
