  1. Hi, I will post some of my journal here, I already have a personnal journal system that I use on a reagular basis so I won't be posting every trades, but I'll do my best to post the most relevant (very good or ugly ones). Also, my job situation doesn't allow me to trade everyday yet, so I would not have something to post everyday anyway... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Been daytrading for 4 years now partial time, started really strong, in penny stocks (yeah.. count me in.. another one), had great days, but without blowing my account ended up loosing at the end. Reallity is, if I wasn't risk adverse by nature, I would have blown up during that phase. Been in 3 or 4 different trading room before BBT. Started to trade higher-priced stocks about 1.5 years ago, trying to re-learn, re-wire my brain vs what I have learned in the pennystock world. (a lot of room pumping-dumping, or really fast execution on 5 cents move, 20k shares.. you see the picture). Not my style. -During my first 2-3 years, I wasn't realizing it, but those losses and having the wrong trading process slowly affected my confidence. That lack of confidence had me looking at the market without trading during days, weeks, even an entire month last summer.(I wasn't triggering) Good thing is, since I wasn't taking trades during the day, I was using my ToS OnDemand simulator to practice at night to slowly rebuild my mindset. Nowadays, I take more trades (even sometimes too many) I will have red and green days, but I really need to be able to align more green days in a row in order to make this as a living. At least, I feel that things are moving forward again. One step at a time. Most of my trading errors are now things that I can pin-point, and they repeat themselves, so it's easier to work on them. @Andrew Aziz trading mentallity/ability and book helped me a lot more recently, I realised I was trying too many patterns, trying to be creative instead of beeing systematic. I now put my focus on 2 "patterns": ORBs and ABCDs ,that's it. It going better. Just though it would be nice to explain where I come from, maybe some of you could relate to this. Don't hesitate to throw in ideas, or if you see something in my trading, I'm really open new ideas/opinions in order to get better. Thanks, Karl
