I was off to a bit of a slow start this quarter as I had one winning trade followed by a losing one, before logging in a couple of breakeven plays. But after a huge 200-pip loss and a canceled trade, I was able to chalk up three winners in a row! That pretty much made my quarter and allowed me to close in the green.

As I’ve mentioned in my latest set of trade reviews, I could’ve ended up with more gains had I managed my risk better and locked in some pips instead of watching them all vanish during a top-tier event. That aside, I think I did make some improvements with my trading performance this quarter, as I mustered the guts to manage several open positions at a time and stay in trends much longer.

Besides, my average gains in pips and percentages are higher than my average losses so I’m gonna call this a good quarter. Got any tips on what else I should work on?


Happy time
