Someone once said "trading is 10% system, and 90% your mental state.
Well, overtrading plagued my day yesterday. -16 was the total after 12, yes 12 trades! What was I thinking. ( I wasn’t thinking, I was reacting. )
If you trade just to trade well, and not to make money, the secret is that the money will follow.
Good trades come together multiple times a day. I’m learning to wait to find the low hanging fruit. When I climb up into the tree after the fruit, I end up trying too hard and reaching too far and I fall out of the tree.
Friday’s result…emotions in check…system in place…2 trades of +6.3 and +3.9 = 10.2 I’m done trading, now I will just study and learn some more.
10 pips a day, I can do that.
