What one thing did I do best this week and how I did I do it?
My focus on the 15min context, enabled me to take trades at better levels and read the context to know when to step aside. This focus on the higher timeframe helped me when I was taking trade off LTF levels to handle them more aggressively and in context to what was happening.
What one thing did I do badly this week and what led me to do it?
Same problem as last week, a problem of getting in at the right time and at the right price in the areas of interest. I blogged about this here, My problem with no fills trades.
I experimented this week with different style of entering as per that post.
This was not particular successfully, it got me into trades, but normally at a worse price of 2-3 ticks, and still had a large percentage of no fills.
What specifically will I do next week to continue doing what I did best?
To help me focus on the 15min chart and to stop my attention wandering to the LTF looking for trades, I will add a watermark to the chart, so that I have a constant remainder where my focus should be.
What specifically will I do next week to improve what I did worst?
I am going to try Bookmap. I write my thoughts on this in a separate post.
How well did I achieve my “continue my best” goal last week and what do I need to do this week to continue/improve upon that progress?
My homework continued to be good, I have noticed that I do not always prioritise my hypothesis in the correct order. To improve on this I need to on the longer term bias to prioritise the hypo in the correct order, taking in account that the Bund statically has a tendency to follow like with like, up to till day 4.
I have started to note in the plan, why I am interested in levels, i.e. if they are VAL, Highs etc. This can make the if then statements harder for me to read and focus on. Whilst this is helpful, I am going to only do that on levels which could be turning points.
