Usually I trade 5 to 10 times a week , I had 48 trades this. Way too many. My broker must be very happy. I wanted to be more aggressive but I guess I got carried away.  I cut too many of winners too fast but I did not let one of my losers get away. I wimped out on way too many good trades and I think a lot of my trades were frustrations from that. There was at least 10 trades that I either pulled the order before it got filled or I pushed the stop loss too close to protect the same gains where they would have been great trades. Crazy man crazy.

The last two weeks I have not traded well on the days trading should have been easy. And one day each week when trading was not easy - I chased and got hit. I feel I should have shown much better results than this so far for the month of October.

It was a crazy week for me mentally.  I got so frustrated missing so many good trades or chickening out of them - I went crazy on Wednesday and lost a bunch of money chasing a bunch of trades. I am surprised my numbers were not a lot worse.

September adjustment

I forgot to include $294 in dividends to my results.
