LOL…well I am glad that I got that out of my system. Both trades hit their stops and too top it off I doubled my stop loss!! And still took the trade knowing it would be a 50/50. In one way it feels good because up until this point I was sticking to my trading plan and not allowing just one thing to control my decision on how I am trading.
With this I was able to baseline my emotions because I trust what I am learning which keeps me from acting impulsively. Even writing this now feels a little impulsive and I feel like I am venting, well I am not trying to vent when I am trading! And these last couple trades feel like impulsiveness all the way around from the size of the trade to the trade in general.
I was also realized I was riding a wave that could or could not form again. The wave being that the news articles was going to have such a dramatic effect that I could trade without taking into account my other analysis.
I will be posting soon about how I am making my choices in my trade setups. Thanks for reading the vent.
