Day's Anatomy- 12th November 2012

I tried, but can't find an unforced error in my trading today. Yippee!

The eagle-eyed may notice a bunch of other trade markers on the chart other than the ones I've marked up. Those aren't my trades ;) More about that in a future post!

As Scalpy says,  

"There are four types of trades. Good winners, bad winners, good losers and bad losers."

Today, I only have the good variety of winners and losers on my chart so, as such, can't really add much in terms of commentary here.

What I can say is that the three days since switching back to SIM have, magically, been net positive overall. I guess I should be happy...*sigh*

As I've said before, the passing grade is now higher than before. I hope this will be enough to bolster my confidence to the extent that there is little/no difference between my SIM discretion and Live account discretion.

It's funny, as a youngster, I always used to wonder why sports people sometimes had such difficulty bridging the gap between practice performance and match performance. Confidence and Faith...

Hi MM, thanks for the mention. Wish I could take credit for the good winners and good losers, but someone mentioned it on a forum (can't remember where), and it really struck a chord with me. If traders can be in a position to really understand what it means (you will lose, probably quite often), they'll be in a much better position to win.

It's good to see you still posting :)

I won't have time to post much for the rest of the month, but will check in regularly to see what you're up to if that's ok.
