I feel like I’m peeling onions. I’m searching for samples for a particular setup. But I feel like I have to do it in order.
I don’t wanna just have a piece of the trend. I want to understand the whole thing, because they’re all connected.
So, before jumping into the trickier, more frequently seen, riskier/more profitable setup, I should start with the one that is easier, less frequent, and less volatile.
Focus on the big picture, understand that, then zoom in to the smaller picture. Kinda like that.
But then I have images that keep popping into my head about similar setups that I should look at also. My brain starts running all over the place, my thoughts are becoming chaotic and unorganized.
¨Oh, I should analyze this other setup, and that setup related to that, and…¨
My strategy is based on price action that occurs at S/R levels. But there’s not just one kind of S/R–there are many. I’m working on the ones that happen least frequently, and my brain keeps thinking about the ones that happen most frequently.
It’s driving me bonkers!
I stopped what I was doing, and started putting my thoughts on paper. I figured I need to make a definitive list of the setups that are bouncing around in my coconut.
I did that. I thought I was drawing all bullish setups, but some of them were bear trend setups. Then I realized how mixed up the setups are in my head. A couple (or more) of these setups are the same but just bullish/bearish versions.
I need to get a bit more organized, and make a proper list of these setups.
I’m stepping away from the charts for a few minutes, until I can make a decent list.
