So I started looking over my trades for the last couple weeks and especially looking at my big losing days, my big winning days and days I was up in the morning but ended up down for the day. So I came up with a rule after the fact that would have improved my trading. I've noticed one major thing.
If I have 2 large losing trades in a row(10 cents for me), I should stop for the day. I've looked over my winning days and I'm usually up in the moring but as soon as I have more then 2 losing trades, my net has NEVER came back. I might make money through out the day but my net will always be lower from commisions and other losing trades. I've also noticed on my loosing days, if I'm down early, i'll be down all day. In the 3 months that I have been trading fulltime, I've only come back from a losing day ONCE! So this should keep my losing days in check.
The only problems I see with this is that I'm still learning, and loses are part of the game. This rule could keep me from other profitable trades through out the day. Another is that this is the summer months and most moves seem to happen in the morning anyway, so by sticking through this rule year round might hurt me also.
When you are an inexperienced trader, you have to go FULL THROTTLE. Your goal must be to make the most amounts of trades possible, while losing the least. You must give it all and should never be half hearted about trading.
