Daily Review

Realized P&L: 8.25P (ES) 0T (CL) 

Process Goal: Quality trade qualification/selection. Paying closer attention to harmonics on entry.

Evaluate the execution of your process goal:

Happy with my qualifications today. Really solid notes taken on watching these harmonics and identifying poor excess into lows/incomplete auctions. As well as straying away from dissidence in trades.

Major error was from the Sunday trade. Not qualified and a volatility/emotion-driven trade.

Identify a few strengths
  • Handling dissidence
  • Choosing to do nothing
  • Identifying lack of excess in swings.
Identify a few areas for improvement
  • Catch the divergence in chop.
Review any missed trades
  • No significant setups that I missed.
