One interesting test to do is when you feel like you should close your positions leave 5 to 10% still running and keep a log of what happens to that last piece.
You can see if you are exiting trades where you should be. You might discover 80% of your trades go 20% longer.
Keep a log of your TP and see if you under guess or over guess. This works with losses also. You could find out if you make your SL to tight or too loose.
You won't know any of it if you don't track and study it.
How anyone can expect to get anywhere without running a journal of some sort - even the most basic - is beyond me.
Memory is too subjective and you remember the bad things out of all proportion over the good things that happened.
