Well, November turned out a good bit better than October for me. I credit that to ridding myself of a bias I had to trade earlier in the day. I think a couple trades where I entered after the 10:00 30 minute candle that turned out really well back in September (like this one) instilled an unhealthy bias towards trading off that candle. For a while after those
successful lucky trades, I would aggressively look to be in something shortly after 10:30AM.
I’ve tried to rid myself of that bias and I think it worked in November. I’ve always thought of myself as a picky trader, but I’ve worked on trying to be even pickier. In fact, I give myself the hardest pat on the back on the days where I see several okay setups where I’m able to resist the urge to trade and not trade at all. It’s those days that in many ways, ironically, I feel like I’ve traded my best.
Here’s my calendar for November:
