I spent my day in church, shopping in Queen Victoria market, having Malaysian food for lunch, a nice coffee break in a small cafe near my place. What a nice day. A little chilly in Melbourne, but I feel good. A day without work and trading.
After finished my dinner, I was checking out my emails. Unintentionally, I was browsing my old blog posts, my SIMSCI futures trading journal ,which was around 2 years ago. I am inspired by that trader, which , in fact is myself. 😆 . No, not another showing off posting here. The point is, I found that trading profitably can be that simple. I was purely trading price patterns and inter market sentiments (I used Nikkei and HangSeng as sentiment indicators when I was trading SIMSCI futures, I didn’t know how did I come out with this brilliant idea), that’s it. I still love that moment.
Looking at my current trading. Again, I am back to the starting point. I start to perform well when I am back to basic. I adventured different stuffs in trading, trying to improve (if not deteriorating my own performance), and profit appears when I am trading the old way that I am comfortable and confident with.
This is absolutely one of the good points of keeping a trading journal. Go back to read your old journal. It is a mirror. It tells you how silly you were. It tells you how good you were, and It tells you now it is the time to head back to gym to get back your six packs and biceps.
Ah, just my weekend rant.
