+.50%...+2.0% for the week

It took a long time today or at least it seems that way. In any event, I was fortunate to be able to find a reasonable set up this morning that didn't take to long to pay off.

On a different note, I start school on Monday. Eight weeks of math and Spanish. The math is required, the Spanish is an elective. I suspect my time is going to be spent nearly entirely on these two things in the next 8 weeks. I totally suck at non financial math. I am pretty comfortable with all things financial but the rest, well lets just say I have spent a lifetime cheating or avoiding it altogether. This time through though, I have to suck it up and actually do it right. Its the last step toward me being the first person to graduate from college in my family. If nothing else, I want to do it as an example for my kiddo. She's already smarter than me in math, she helped me pass the placement test and shes only in 8th grade! I'm hoping she can tutor me these next few weeks.

Time to head out in a few minutes.


+.50%....+1.5% for the week

Didn't have time to post yesterday so this post is yesterday's result.

A single long trade right at the open with very small risk. Exited with 20+ ticks and one and done.

I am enjoying this new found focus on the process vs just trading and it is producing not only some wins but more importantly, it is producing confidence in myself to do the right thing. After I left the charts yesterday morning, I never thought about it again even once all day long. That is a sea change for me. I normally think about trading most of the day even if I am engaged elsewhere. I must confess, it was a welcome change.

Still thinking about the no trade Wednesday I had this week and how much of a confidence builder that day was. Hopefully that lesson and that feeling will last a long time.
