Best month of the year despite some sloppy mistakes

February Trading Recap

My fourth month of trading smaller and working on my discipline, but also my best month yet! Still plenty to work on though!

January Trading Recap

Much better job not fighting stocks this month and with my sizing, loss cutting could use some work still though. I also need to start focusing on my entries more, way too many missed/squandered opportunities this month!

Here's my video recap for the month of December! Overall a slightly better month, but I still have a ways to go. Biggest thing I need to work on is detaching from the money side of things and just focusing on trading well!
