Wow! 23 days since I last did any proper trading. I say ‘proper’ as I had a brief session to test out my new streaming software in which I neither made nor lost any real money. It’s great to be back and it was brilliant to devote a full day to the craft.
That said, I definitely noticed a difference and it took time to get into things. This is where doing things full-time would differ. I was initially afraid of entering the markets for what might go wrong. I initially was thinking of the challenge rather than the outcome – for which is totally random.
I took the time to watch this – an interview in which Mark Douglas talks about the randomness of trading and how best to look at it mentally – not to dwell in losses or wins and instead look for consistency throughout. It’s a great watch!
After watching it I went for a run while I digested what I watched and worked on clearing the mind of any bullshit that was wallowing in my easily-distracted sponge. It worked. I came back ready to delve straight in.
I upgraded my servers to accommodate certain changes I am making to a couple of my sites and as such I am currently having trouble uploading images to my new server. So I will have to give links to screenshots for the time-being until the problem is solved.

As you can see from the growth chart I have removed all the blank days. Now the chart will read as a consistent as though I was trading everyday.
