I only daytrade NQ with 2-5 roundturns per day. I'm observing that as I make my trading rules more concrete and not open to any doubts, I have a smoother and consistent P/L curve. My earlier rules had conflicts between each other which used to lead to "I could have..." or "I should have..." type remarks from myself after almost every single trade. The doubts that were caused by my own rules lead me to trade inconsistently and react differently to almost identical set-ups. The worst part was with profit taking. Now once I have a position, I rigidly trail it with stop order and also have a separate profit taking order at a specified level. Now I feel much more comfortable. Also, the excitement/stress that I get from the markets has diminished. I now think that the excitement/stress was mainly caused by unconsciously knowing that I will act in an unpredictable manner NOT the market itself. Anyone had similar experiences?
