I gotta admit, I was more busy than usual during this quarter, leaving me with less time and energy to focus on my trades. I was able to spot a few good setups here and there but I haven’t been able to wait for confirmation or manage my open positions properly. It ain’t easy juggling that with prepping for Thanksgiving dinner and shopping for the Christmas season!
What I’m proud of though is my decision to take it easy and refrain from forcing any forex trades. I did learn the hard way in the past years that half-baked trade ideas are better not taken at all so I took extra precaution in reminding myself to sit on my hands if I wasn’t feeling in sync with the markets.
Got any tips on how I could improve on my trading next year?
