GMP started this thread How expectations become self-fulfilling:
Thinking afternoon sessions are always dodgy caused me to exit way too early on £¥ & £$ here, even though there was no reason to in the charts. Slipped into pre-judging it rather than reacting to it.

EOD Pip Report:
£$ -8 +11 +2 -2
€$ +76 -8
€£ +11 -2
£¥ -1 +12 +21
€¥ -14 +51 -6
$¥ --

total: +143

That's four more hours market-watching, for 17 more pips! Could've been alot better if I'd just followed the system post-3pm... but then it has been costly before, so it's a matter of finding the right amount of extra caution to employ.

Huh? Classic paranoia-inducing stuff - sudden spike in ¥ just far enough to take out my trailing stops then head back down to the previous comfy profit level. I panic and close the cable trade as it's still in profit, which promptly tumbles down further!
Only thing I can think caused that was Chinese car sales figures... or the gods hating me!

...and here's how it panned out, an object lesson in NOT MOVING YOUR TRAILING STOPS TOO BLOODY SOON and NOT PANICKING WHEN THINGS GO MENTAL
Two centuries and probably a 50 instead of a net 8 pips. Forex trading is truly sickening sometimes. Still, at least you're always learning!
