So you are human after all?

This week has been good, last week was a shocker.

I traded this but got out too early as usual.

I think it was screaming long because 4hr couldn't close below 50%, it's all easy in hindsight.

E/U trades today.

There are two forces acting upon us: Suffering pushes us forward from behind and pleasures entice us and pull us forward.

Hi Doji, i didnt see your post, but regroup and get back in the saddle.

Things i would do if i was you. Im sure you are doing it anyway.

Pick apart the losing trades looking at the techinical aspects and your emotional mindset when you was taking those trades.

This will tell you whats happened. From there you can take corrective action.

Take it as lesson the markets trying to teach you.

Its just bump in road you will soon pass it dude.

Well Im working on a transition to FXCM then to e-mini's and futures in December.

Trading in demo till next Friday to get used to the new platform. I'm also making fine adjustments also to make sure my style of trading will work with the e-mini's and futures.

One thing I do notice is there is alot less, noise per say, with the e-mini's and futures.

Todays trade and pics are just fine adjustments to the method.

Have a great weekend!
