My trading has come a long way over the last year.. I've gotten to the point where I'm taking trades and not getting emotional over them.. If I lose, I move on and wait for the next opportunity.. in the past I would be done for the day after a loss.. I move my stops up when the market heads in my direction to protect what I have.. and I don't worry anymore about losing out on a bigger trade. I've adopted the motto to protect capitol above all else.. This is easy to say .. but hard to implement when emotions take over during a trade.. I have two problems to overcome.. With electronic trading I keep taking trades trying to get a quick scalp of a point or so.. and it doesn't always work.. the other is sometimes I'm getting out of trades too early.. example was this morning I got long at 10:20 at 923.25.. Emini.. but after 20 minutes it looked like the market was going to head down so I got out and booked a profit. the market proceeded to head up after that point.. I'm feeling much better about my trading and should soon start showing consistent profits.. Sorry to ramble... just trying to express my sentiments.. I have no one else to talk to about this stuff..
