Six real trades as Dow hits 20,600

The trading week is progressing.  The slideshow below shows my six trades from yesterday – on DAX & Dow in the indices, as well as USDJPY and Cable in FX.  Am trying to provide a good range of content here on the blog, hence I try to include screen shots of actual trades (together with some thoughts) on a regular basis.

Another long trading session yesterday.  I am amazed how tired I am getting by the end of the day.   The indices kind of continued their bullish trend, although the DAX experienced a pullback of more than 100 points.  The Dow continued rallying to finish above 20,600 – it was only a few sessions ago that the 20k level was broken.  Bring on Dow 30k – only 9,400 to go.

My trades were as follows:

Am continuing along with the themes of fluidity in setups and being very self-aware throughout the session – self-aware as far as my physical and mental states are concerned.

The key issue in today’s session was one of trade management.  Two setups worked, three half-worked and one didn’t work.  With a combination like that, I should be well in the positive for the session.  Instead I came out with a tiny small profit for the day.

Let’s see whether I can do better in the next session.
