Buy signal triggered on GBPUSD
Got in on the retracement back to the entry level at 1.56753
Calculated lots incorrectly.
Opened with 2.5 lots when it should have been around 1.1
Closed 1.4 lots when price went into profit. I need to stop being so eager and get my ducks in a row before pulling the trigger. This has to stop.
Profit from stuff up with lots = $81
Profit from this trade = 34 pips ($480)
Balance = $6836
Apart from my stuff up with the lot size, this was a well analysed and executed trade. Gonna take the Captains advice and give it a break for a little while. I agree that the holidays are not the best time to be trading.
