Usd/jpy sell off

There was strong sell off in usd/jpy that I didn't notice until it was pretty much over. I tried to catch another leg down after bounce in eur/jpy. There wasn't second usd/jpy powered move just tryouts. Nevertheless movements were sufficient to make some profitable trades. It was very stimulating timing eur/jpy trades by watching usd/jpy and eur/usd movements. First trade should have been closed earlier and last one trailed a bit. Second entry was emotional getting in immediately after stop.

Market didn't advance after popping 1.3400, so two small losses. When I felt after the urge to recover the loss I immediately closed the platform. That's good step in wanted direction.

Making good day bad

First I was ashamed now I feel sad. From +27 I lost it all and then some. We can say that I hit invincibility tilt, but that doesn't change the fact that after so many years there is not a lot of improvement. Same mistakes all over again.

Small loss but good day

I feel good about my today's trading. Everything went well from the small losses on the possible reversal of the minor trend to some profitable scalps. I was focused and emotions didn't hit me at any time. No problem with small loss, even no problem if loss was bigger. It passed some time from when I booked any profitable trade, so it felt good to be right on something and get closure with taking that profit.

More of the same

Didn't take 1R at first trade, then angry trade and small loss. Later, tricky market and me trying to trade like I used to, but it's not working any more. I wasn't by the screen in the meantime.

Same again

I wasn't by the screen in those minutes before my entry. Again, no follow through. I'm now used to this. Didn't take 10 pips, used to that also.

Missing to do the right thing

Again I don't want to take small profit. Probably because I have such small amount in my account that anything monetary is meaningless. Ugly fact is that this is also undisciplined, I don't listen to myself and don't take 1R or 2R in this case. Maybe I just don't want to miss out on a high of a runner trade. So, I'm trading for an adrenaline high.

I'm thinking to try out 1R trading, this waiting for golden ticket get me frustrated even when I get in at good price.

One trade, one stop

My stop was the low of the move, later it rebounded and hit 215. Bigger or smaller stops always find a way to be taken.
