Winning streak messing with my system

  1. I am currently on a very long winning streak (in terms of consecutive winning days).

    For the last week or so, I've noticed that my daily profits have dropped below my avg daily earnings.

    I haven't been able to trade the way I normally do...perhaps because I am trying to protect my earnings for the month and make sure I have the record month. Also, I can tell that I'm very much concerned about keeping the winning streak alive.

    Downside is that, I missed out on a couple of setups even today that I normally get in.

    I am definitely letting my emotions prevent me from CONSISTENTLY executing my system.

    I'm sure this issue also applies when one is having a long, losing streak...being more cautious than normal.

    Anyone else experiencing similar problems? What did you do?
