keep redrawing or remodeling the part of your trading method that you know for a fact is messing up your game, or scrap the entire thing and start with something else until u find one that can gel with your psychology as a trader.
Not everyone can swing trade and not everyone can scalp. Then there are those who are in between.
They suit different people differently because of Psychology.
I followed ur trading log now and then.
I have pointed this out a few times. Your analysis on lower TF is ok. You just dont read bias of higher TF.
If you learn how to read where prices are going to end up for the day, then you can clearly take the leisure of picking trades with absolutely next to nothing as SL in the lower TF.
Your trading method seems to concentrate on supply and demand levels on smaller TF without looking at where its going to end up for the day on the Higher TFs.
I could be wrong because honestly I have never sat and went into the details of why you did all the analysis that you do.
Reassuring or mentally preparing yourself maybe?
All I know is you are over doing it and looking too deep at things that are not there or not consistently there.
U need to couple what you are doing with a higher TF analysis.
Otherwise you are going to be trading blind and start relying on statistical advantages to make a buck. That is the hardest way to make money.
Back test for 2 or 10 years and take every trade just because ur back testing says you will eventually have more profitable trades than not. All is well until you try sneaking in compounding and then ur chances just took a nose dive again!.
Unless u can read where prices are going to end up for the day, you are just guessing or gambling.
Even traders who read price at looking at the charts and tell you oh this is where I am buying or selling, are doing it because they know where its going to end up or atleast they have a reasonable idea on where its suppose to be by the end of the trading session.
that is what is lacking in what you are doing I guess.
