It's pretty cool to be able to add to my coping skills, the ability to reach out and communicate with the trading community. see Dr. Brett's Coping.
I made an index card regarding missing moves:
Missing Big Moves is a Fact
They help you find the direction
mm happens all day & night and in LIFE
mm is ok, it is a challenge, you may have only missed the start, so stay focused
(potential setups may include: 123, doji, pause, micro trend line)
mm is a part of my system
mm is better than losing in high volatility
Get over it
mm could lead to a setup when done
I have been constantly placing my mind in the trading position of looking at my monitors and visualizing that I just missed a move and I have been reprogramming myself to not care, not react, not allow it to bother me. Technique from Dr. Brett's Step 4 in Coping post.
I also discovered an awesome post in the blog of, My Trading Edge, that has a video by a guy I never heard of, Al Brooks, and I ordered his book on Amazon. I already incorporated his MICRO TREND LINE into my system. I combined it with NYSE TICK extremes and will be observing it today. Thanks to My Trading Edge for that!
Have a good day, traders. - J
