For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
The mental part of trading is so hard….
Today for example I had excellent signals on the crude oil yet barely managed to scratch…
It started with me trying to trade while doing other things (not a good idea…)
Then I would miss a good trade and get anxious to jump in even though the signal was done with…also not a good thing.
Once I did get in, since my psyche was already off, I did not have the patience to stay in the trade and let my stops and targets work, so I would get out. Sure enough seconds after I get out, the market goes my way and drives me crazy…not a good thing again….Luckily the signals were good enough otherwise this could have been a bad day.
The points I am trying to make today?
Make sure you are focused and not distracted.
If you sense that you are not in the right frame of mind, take a small break.
Plan your trade and then have patience to trade your plan.
I highly recommend using daily stops and profit targets. Set a profit target for the day and when achieved take your profit and walk away. Set a daily loss limit, i.e the most you are willing to risk on any given day. When that happens, walk away. Might be a losing day but if you stop it can not turn into a TERRIBLE day….
