I bet a lot of people have this: You have a strategy that works. You start thinking about how you can make it better. You start incorporating more and more ideas from other people, and somewhere along the line, what you’re doing doesn’t work anymore, and it’s almost like your mind has been erased. This is why it’s so important to take excellent notes on the process of what you’re doing. If you start to slip up, you can just go back and shift to a previous mindset, and try to take what worked from what you learned trying something new.
Very sensible and I completely agree – I’ve started journaling all my trades, and the strategy breakdown for each one, and I’m trying┬áto make sure i make it clear when to exit – especially if it turns against me (stubborn loss holder)
