Today I didn’t do very well, and my biggest mistake was not managing my sizing in a few trades. The other mistake I made was I over traded, but I spotted my mistake and stopped doing it. I also took the time today to crunch the numbers on my daily performance, and it looks like I will only paper-trade Fridays, and Mondays from now on. Here is the data:
I also crunched the numbers on my intraday performance and I will likely stop trading what I call “abnormal hours” (about 7:45amMST to 9amMST). I would post the chart, but it has dollar figures and I like to keep that kind of stuff private :).
On a side note, it snowed today! Just a dusting in my yard but the stuff at/above treeline got a decent amount. Here are some photos of my yard:
