Trades for 1-26-12

I am really disappointed in my last trade. I tightened my stop to breakeven because I was too scared to hold overnight, and as you can see I would have made more than enough to offset my losses for the day.

Trades for 1-17-12

I did "ok" today, the part that makes me a little uncomfortable is how the last trade overlaps the previous one. Usually that notes a lack of confidence in the trade, but today I did it because I had confidence in it. I'll have to keep an eye out for falling into that next time I'm in a trade that is similar.

Daily trade in XAU/USD

I had a daily trade in XAU/USD the other week that I wanted to share. I had to wait to get a decent screenshot of it otherwise I would have posted it sooner.

Trades for 1-3-12

I had my stop way too close on my 1st trade, my 2nd trade I tightened too soon, my 3rd trade was good, 4th just didn't work out, 5th I should not have entered, and 6th brought me to break even though I was still pushing it. I think the 1st trade is what set the tone for the whole day. Next time I have to make sure I set my initial stops correctly.
