A couple days ago, my strategy told me that EUR/USD as about to turn bullish. I went long and got stopped out.
Yesterday, I went long on EUR/USD. Got stopped out.
I wanted to go long this morning based on a signal, but I thought maybe I was reading the chart wrong.
I decided to wait. I came back a few hours later, and I saw a big green candle!!
I was pretty upset. My backtesting told me that I could be wrong up to possibly 3 times before I get it right.
I doubted myself and I missed out.
I had some other losses and this one win would have made it all worth it. But it didn’t work out that way.
I really was annoyed. Disappointed as well. Several emotions.
I was too emotional, so no more trading today.
I’m working a temp job today, and I have time to think.
I realised I’m getting better. Slowly. My strategy is working. I can taste it.
I may have been scared to take the trade, but I was still right.
This is exactly the time for me to keep going, and keep making small adjustments.
On one side I can be frustrated, but on the other side I can be encouraged. All I have to do is: do more of what works, and less of what doesn’t.
Keep being patient and waiting for the right trading signals, and less S/R bounce trades. To be honest, those trades are the ones that are killing me. I have to be very selective about those trades. More selective, actually.
For anyone who comes across this post, keep trading! Don’t quit! Learn from your mistakes and made the necessary adjustments. If you want it, make it happen!
