First we took the Loss.
We took a Max Loss on 8-8-17. If you don’t know how to handle a loss, you can look to hold on longer than you should and make it even worse. There’s a reason you plan for max losses, so that when they occur, you can take it like a pro.
Next, we stuck with the Plan.
That allowed us to take the trades the day presented instead of being distracted by yesterday’s losses. Once all of our trades were live, we walked away. We went to the gym, we studied other charts. There’s no advantage to sitting at the desk and staring, your results are the same, your mental psyche is drained if you sit and stare. There’s a better way.
Finally, We made it all back and then some.
This is how you trade like a pro. Focus on the setups, focus on the system. The results WILL take care of themselves over the long haul.
