5 trades today broke major rules in my plan and never should have been taken. 1 trade was fine but I didn't stick with my plan to trail because it didn't move as fast as I expected. 100% of my trades today had "me" problems even though I was determined to follow my plan. And I had the same kind of struggles when trading the NQ. It's kind of hard emotionally to realize this. It's much easier to blame the price action for being difficult to read and stop out my trades. However, I was the one that made the decision to take trades in that environment and not wait for what I was looking for. Seems like I keep repeating this, like a broken record. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, because, even though I'd rather not think it's me that's the problem, it is the truth and I'd rather be aware of my lack of self-control so I can work on it. Occasionally, I do learn to control a really bad trading habit. One was a while ago, to never move a stop loss farther away. That took some work, but I don't struggle with it the way I used to. The other is reducing the number of my losing trades per day. I have to write this, not to be boastful, but because I need some hope that I can change and develop self-discipline to follow my trading plan if I make the choice to and develop the habit of it. If I don't (or won't)....that's a road I don't want to go down.
