Missed buying some nice easy Euro strength this morning through misreading my calendar last night and thinking it was NFP day today(hence a waste of time trying to trade mornings). Of course, that's actually tomorrow, so the lesson here is not to read your calendar last thing at night when you're knackered and probably going a bit senile...

someone smacked the Yen round the head with a multi-currency frying pan overnight... 8am would've been an okay hop-on, but I missed the boat and it's been all sideways most of the morning

Yet another variation, incorrectly applied but showing theoretical promise.

Should've been better but lacking focus. Poor energy levels=poor decision making.

Could've been a very profitable morning but I'm still getting out of winning positions too early, seeing turns where there aren't any. More a confidence problem than a methodological one.

Horrible morning. Big profits to be had in €$ but I kept missing the entries and kept banging my head against a brick wall called sterling instead.

Could've been ridiculous triple-figure profits today if I'd followed my exit rules properly instead of getting out in expectation of there being limited movement because it's July. Trading on expectations instead of fact again - costs you money.

notional 15min morning profits of 100/100/80/100 - sticking to the method today would've provided alot of cover for its losing days
