Out of phase

It was hard for me to figure out good trades and direction. I guess my general view was bearish and market was retracing at the time from the lows. Two good entries helped to finish positive.

Difficult day

I didn't lose temper but it was hard to make profitable trades. At the end buying spikes to the downside and quick exits saved the day and dig me from -22 pips hole.

Radical forex move

Again forex day when I can say that I didn't know that this was even possible. I was trading eur/chf because of it's bullishness and made nice profit. Minute later after the radical move I was able to enter eur/usd and make some profit there as well.

Oanda for some time had hiccup and didn't update price nor chart on eur/chf betwen 1.1760 and 1.2100

Mini blow up

You my wonder how I not quit with this trading game when I have ridiculous days like this, how I'm not fed up to the point of leaving it all behind me?
My answer is that if we put money aside I really like discovering hidden rooms of my own psyche that get opened this way. Money on account is small now so I'm not getting killed financially. There are many interesting points for me to think about after today. Like why I'm so inclined to trade so impatiently with fear that I will lose opportunity? After I lose some and decide that I lost opportunity is that self aggression from that point (after yellow mark)?
In hindsight I was holding my ground until those two stops at 10:40. Five pip stop with 4 pip spread wasn't enough by just few pips. Then I lost it. I was buying and got stopped out. Then after some point it was obvious if I get bounce it wouldn't mean a thing, but I kept buying and getting stopped. Maybe getting bottom is ego thing (probably like getting top), so if I get it I wouldn't feel so bad?

Not good

Approaching markets too lightly not taking it serious as it should be. I have energy and focus to take myself out of the deep holes, that kind of thinking is needed in the first place to make profit. It's example of trading not to lose. Lack of attitude of trading to win.
