Quieter day today, particularly in the afternoon due to these two countries having a public holiday.
I did take half a dozen trades still – two in the indices and four in FX – the setups were valid. Two of the setups involved situations where a crossover of the EMA10/20 had not yet occurred on the 15M timeframe, however the rest of the setup parameters will good. Going forward, I will make the completion of the XO a mandatory requirement – meaning that I cannot take a trade unless that has occurred.
That aside, completion of documentation was good and prompt. Checking of charts every 15 minutes was good, and I also made a little bit of headway in some other trading tasks – so it was a productive day.
Certainly in terms of “trading inputs”, things are constantly improving. It’s just the trading results now that will need to follow suit. I am sure that they will get there eventually.
I was also back to my usual 6am start this morning – taking a break between 10.30 and 11.45 before working through to 4.30pm. All good.
Off to Hyde Park now to do some more French study whilst watching ducks and swans.
