Returned 7.9% this week. My worst trade took place on Monday, when I allowed one of my demons to take over; the result being that I traded in greater size than was justified by both the trade set-up and my own very lax risk parameters. I closed the trade at break-even but on hindsight it could have been very detrimental. A lucky escape.
I continue to take excessive risk relative to the standard model, but my trading road map serves me well as my mentor. I give a scoring of 7/10 for how well I have heeded the advice of the road map. My greatest flaw was that I allowed the the discretionary component of my approach to get the better of me, but the results of these trades was far less destructive due to a massive reduction in the size of these trades. There is a lot more work to be done.
