Week 5Week Ending 5/6/16-12.38%Entries: 42
It's like I entered a time machine and revisited myself back when I first started trading...
It's crazy b/c I was stable throughout the whole week with no signs of trouble.
Somehow, my brain just IMPLODED on Friday and I totally screwed myself over like a complete noob.
, This is what it feels like when I FOCUS on what I can Gain, as opposed to what I can Lose. *×*×*
Great, so I need about 14.13% to get back to where my account started on 5/1...
Anyhowz, I think I understand what happened, combination of factors:
• Missing the AJ Short trade @2ndDouble that would've been good for 8.4%
• Realizing how much I missed trading at higher leverages, due to not being able to elevate from my weak sauce low leverage entries frequently/consistently enough
• NFP occurring on Friday, so, hoping I could exploit a guaranteed large pip move to make up for my missed trade on AJ

Before I spazzed out on Fri, I was actually mentally aware enough to make an interesting observation about how I use my risk boxes, so that will be under review as well.
