DislikedThe first stop trade at % dd was more than enough to believe that you trade with this approach, no need for such event to repeat. More than that, as this is not a trading skills show ... I am really sorry for your loss! Sometime it can retrace and bigger is the pain of why not staying for another 1% more dd ... or it can go very wrong ... an example was few days ago! I see you are doing the SL manually, maybe you should put this functionality in an EA / VPS as when the planets are aligned against you there is still a warrior somewhere hidden to...Ignored
- most of the account following has an auto SL function built into the copier. that doesnt have on the master side.
- the description in the first post about the loss was more to get into the mindset scenario, say, an insider look. i dont have real second thoughts, the stop loss set to be a number that i think works ideally. for me. also gave a recovery reason why so.
- the " the planets are aligned against you there is still a warrior somewhere hidden to mess up the bad plans" ...not sure where to place this, surely feel some disrespectful vibe in the tone. my feeling can cheat me, but i think you are one of those who root for ppl to eventually lose, then to feel 'you said so'...but i can be largely off here. or not.
- change, as since May. the month of May. nothing recent. entries are based on some criteria, and some discretionary aspect. nothing has changed in that. number of entries are higher, because larger entries cut into smaller pieces. that was mentioned before on the journal, even that as like a month or so ago. but it isnt something that changed the concept itself, just adjust the execution to avoid some slippage that comes with larger lots sometimes.
- be out before being in? it is scalping. to the core. familiar with the idea, presume? it is rather quickly in and out, and at points pile in more.
- feelings: LOL. after all every single move is based in some sort of feelings, or "beliefs" if you wish. take the word as some Price Action, in my interpertation. but i dont like to use PA, the current magic word, lol. feelings suits me, how i feel about the chart, the levels...if not working for you, well...unlikely that i will change my vocabulary now.
- pips value. most of the time a pair, especially when get scaled, runs by itself. i wont go into details and times, but GJ entries had nothing to do with the SL, at all.
UCHF mentioned, is little strange, cos i traded it about first time in about last 6 month a few entries, the last week. most certainly not today.
as for the speed of move, as surprising as it may be, ECad was moving today faster and more than GJ.
Anyway, it is as it is.
Looking back is the easiest thing in the world to make decisions on the what IFs...
There was a plan, the plan was followed, the equity and most of the booked gains protected.
For me it is acceptable loss.
If you feel it isnt, it is your freedom. And it is my loss to handle, my way.
I think i give enough insight what is going on, and how my personal trading is.
Well aware and dont expect that it suits everyone, or that all will be in agreement of all or even some aspect. And dont have to.
It is, was, and will be always a personal choice to read my journal or not to read it.
But i am not looking for certain type of comments, include where the tones makes me question some sincerity.
there is always, always another trade!!
