Week 7
Week Ending 6/10/16
-2.91%
Entries: 22
Image

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I haven't traded in a little over 3 weeks, but I couldn't tell if my entries/analysis were really discretionary, or, if I was just plain & simply, trading inconsistently. hmmmm

But overall, I still had the general feeling that I was doing the right things irrespective of short term results...

Other than that, actually had NU gap Long over my SL. Luckily I was at Entry size, so I only lost 2 risk spaces on that.

To follow are a few trades from that week.

Ultimately, moved my SL to guarantee that I would gain one risk space when I purposely decided not to close trade at a greater profit (I decided to try and hold the trade off of weekly extremes.)

Passed on the option to exit trade 36 pips @1stDouble (moved SL to +10 pips)

To clarify:
Entry Size = 3lev
1stDouble = 6lev
2ndDouble = 12lev
3rdDouble = 24lev

(For some reason, I still wish to define my targets as 33.4% --8 targets-- instead of dropping it down to 21.16% --12 targets--, or even an intermediate 25.9% --10 targets--)

@24lev:
33.4% = 139 pips
25.9% = 108 pips
21.16% = 88 pips

Week 8
Week Ending 6/17/16
5.17%
Entries: 23
Image

Mainly focused on taking smaller pip targets.
Missed a nice NU Short trade @2ndDouble b/c PA spent too much time in my entry area; woke up VERY groggy in the middle of the night and decided I'd rather not wake up to losing a risk space or 2 if I had the option to get out at Break Even after several hours of being in the trade. Woke up to see that PA IMMEDIATELY dropped after I closed the trade and closed my eyes.

Also missed a nice drop in EA @1stDouble, but I was still in Profit Accumulation stage at the time, and my TP was at PA's return to a predictable/respectable spot, so, whatever.

To follow are a few trades from the week.
