Why I Don't Post Performance Results on Here Anymore
Just too much pressure. This guy agrees with me.
Also, it takes way too much time! I already 'journal' most of my trades in a certain sense so it is not hugely useful that way either.
But I do find it easier to trade when I don't really think about whether I am going to posting good results for the month. Lately I am just focused on hitting my current daily profit target, which is ~1.04% of my total trading capital, and hitting my weekly target, which is ~2.59% of my total trading capital. This may sound like an absurdly high goal, but could actually be a quite modest daily profit target for a savvy and experienced short term market participant that isn't working with a particularly large amount of capital (few million $ or less).
Every single day is a new day. How are you going to hit your target, today?
Focus is what I need. Just me and the goal for the moment.
