April overall seemed to be a tougher month for me to trade.  I see that I just about doubled my trading entries from 31 from the prior month to 51 during the month of April.  Obviously, there is always room for improvement.

I believe the trading strategy/method is developing at a decent rate.  I see 3 trading days which accounted for 26 trades of the overall 51 trades.  Here in my humble opinion, lies the answer to the overtrading scenario.

I believe additionally, I can perform better than I have shown so far.  As I continue to develop this trading strategy/method and implement the correct discipline to each trading day, then my performance should naturally get better as a result.

The graph of my trading account shows areas of needed improvement.  But it is also a healthy increase of capital as well in two months of trading.  I know with more trading discipline these results will improve as I continue to understand exactly how to operate and continue refine the trading strategy to capitalize on each month.


Good Trading,

David ‘Tiger’ Knight
