Trade 3/24

This should teach me never to enter a trade right in the middle of the previous session's range before price has made a significant move in a certain direction, and to never trade on a day that:

1) Sea and I had talked about MUM
2) I am having a terrible migraine
3) I am pissed with certain people

@Soulfire and Times Of Your Life: Thanks for your notes. I'll reply tmrw. Apologies.

You tricked me...based on your entry I expected to see a red entry only to see yet more blue added instead. =)

Wow - that was close to a 12 hour trade! Were you monitoring it the whole time? If so- you should get a marathon medal for that! ;-)

That MAE was so large I felt the heat from here :-)

Ouch. So many gorgeous opportunities in Crude today and you chose to hold onto that trade. Maybe you wanted to punish yourself?

@ Soulfire: Yes, 12 hours. I took my eyes off my charts only 4 times: once to feed my cats, twice to pee, and once to receive D when he came home. :-D

@ LW: I've never been able to grasp the MAE concept, just like I've never been able to think in terms of %. :-P

@ LT: I did say that I have a malfunctioning brain :-) It's just that it becomes particularly bad during a certain time of the month, especially when it coincides with the week that UNCLE BEN TALKS... Ok, I did have a plan...except that my timing was A LITTLE off. :-D

LOL!!! Is the chart yours, CORY??! LOL!!!

cory said...

it's my account the trades were made by my student. Hence they were 'external' coming in from another computer.

You're a teacher, Cory?? Wow! Is there anything else I don't know about you? You have a surprise for me every year! :-)
