Ouch, that’s pretty much all I can say about forex today. I had +.44% in London hours, +.30% during abnormal hours, and -8.25% during normal hours. My mistake was not cutting myself off after my 1st normal hours trade. I should have recognized that price was spiking too much today, and should have traded more off the 5 and 15 minute charts waiting for the bars to close before my entries.
I also made a couple trades in stocks this morning. My 1st trade was a mistake (should not have traded it), and my 2nd trade did well but I could have held on it longer.
