It's a Slow Morning

Thought i'd drop by and have a look at my failed attempt to keep up regular blogging.

Writing in a diary.
Posting on forums.

All of which haven't really happened.

So the latest thing is Evernote. I've been keeping to this reasonably well for the past two weeks. Writing notes on five different pairs each morning, drilling down from a Daily to a 4h, to a 1h and then on to some P&F charts. I quite like doing this and so far it's giving me a good overview of the market before I start each day. I've even improved my mornings. Getting up earlier and starting my day at a reasonable time has certainly refreshed me.

Having said that, my trading hasn't been very good at all. If any of you have clicked the MyFxBook link to the left, you'll see that my last post was essentially the peak and i've descended into drawdown since. Frustrating yes, but I still feel that my strategy is good. It just needs some better discipline on my part.

Hasn't that always been the key word?

Mornings like today don't really help.

I'm Trying, Really!

Last week was possibly the best week i've had trading in close to two years now. Most definitely the best i've had since before and coming back from my travels. All the info on the trades and gain can be seen over at Myfxbook. I've now added a link next to all the social media pages on the left of this post.

With my failed attempt at keeping this blog updated last week i'm not entirely sure what shape or form this is going to take over the coming weeks and months. I'd like to keep it updated and use it as a journal of sorts but i'm too busy trying to get my trading on the right track and keeping it there.

Maybe i'll just stick with the occasional chart dump of set ups that I really like.

Who knows?

That Started Well

I missed the first morning of my new approach to the blog yesterday. Maybe it would be better suited to writing a blog post in the evening or detailing any trades I took.

I've taken several trades over the last couple of days which can all be seen here. Each trade has it's own chart and is either annotated or explained in the notes.

Bit up and down but i'm pretty happy with how it's going so far. The main issue being discipline and sticking to the thought processes I have before looking to take any trades.

Early days at the moment but i'm looking forward and feeling good about my approach as a whole.
