starting new thread about my trades. I am hoping to improve digestion of news, fundamentals and sentiment and achieve better decisions while in trade. my trading : 1. swing trade, use stops 2. use fundamentals for bet size, sentiment for timing 3. consider market reflexivity - derives extra signal strength 4. consider algos - use them to my advantage 5. consider large manipulators that depend on income from manipulation - follow them 6. global picture how all fits together - reject some trades as it does not makes sense 7. consider fund managers - source of income No TA. Performance is ok, not great. Although my calls are pretty good, $ effect is relatively disappointing. Wanted to address this by combination of 1. autopilot - some kind of software (in development - excel based) that can be turned on 2. discretionary part - this is where digestion issues come into play Realised that using only (1) is too limiting and there is no shortcut - have to master (2). I am already fine in (2) but suffer from bursts of emotional decisions that cost money -digestion problem. The plan - I will capture these moments and turn them into edge - improve my digestion. No coincidence that trading is not healthy. I believe major reason is that people use force to overcome digestion issues and suffer low quality of life. I try to address this so no health issues. I found useful to record my thoughts for analysis later.
