It was an interesting and yet disappointing week. I have more losing trades than winning ones, and I closed the week flat. It would have been a positive week if Tradestation did not play some monkey tricks and forced me to close my position early. Anyway, I don’t wanna find an execuse for my performance.
There were couple of lessons learned this week.
There were two trades, where I was too eager to establish position when NQ was still in trading range. I got stopped out. And, in contrast, there were two trades, I patiently waited for setup outside trading range, I was rewarded (though one of them exited prematurely due to platform problem). I have missed out opportunity in the Friday afternoon. It happened after lunch hour.
Two good trades (1 screwed up by platform), 2 bad trades
