These last 3 days have been really difficult to trade; for me anyway.
Monday : Holidays around the world so nothing doing
Tuesday and Wednesday : Moves in London session have been tricky as the Asian session had been quite active. So both days I have been playing reversal patterns after the Asian session intraday trend came to and end.
Both plays yesterday and today went the distance to my original target but I got taken out for breakeven after moving my stop into entry position. I like to get my risk off the table as soon as possible when price starts to move well in my direction, usually 10-15 pips; in both the cases with my last 2 trades I got pipped out by 2 pips.
So current scorecard since last loss now reads : Trades 21 Won 8 Breakeven 13.
I should be happy with the preseravtion of capital – I know. I’m grinning thru gnashed teeth 😉
Take a look at my EURUSD Trade today that coulda shoulda woulda….pipped out on red circle
So IF I had held my stop……there’s the mind games. Stop it ! 😀
