I've found that setting a daily goal like I have has limited my earning potential. My goal for the long term is to average 1pt. out of the Mini Russel each day. I believe by doing this I'm putting limiting beliefs on my possible performance.. Today for example.. got short at 625.90.. bailed at 624.90.. And the market is clearly telling me it looks weak. I'm trying to focus on the process of trading itself but am finding it very hard to get that $$$$ target out of my head and trade properly.
