  1. 13:45 - 14m Question is top stuff, Alex - Perfectly articulated - That point at which its "do i stick with my plan and just let it play out?" or "based on 'feeling' maybe should i cut this know, and if i miss, i miss"...

    • My biggest problem is not getting in and just watch it do what I thought it would. Sometimes I'm glad I didn't get in but 75% of the time I'm not

      • Omg me to, my demo
        Account is up 3000-4000 everyday and my main account 100. 😩

  2. My concern is staying in a position too long. Start green and end red. When I don’t stay in a trade, my position usually goes in my intended direction. Or getting in a position too late. I can find good tickers to buy, but when I get in a few bars late….it doesn’t end well. Lol
