It feels like forever since I've been in the Live Room. Although I did host a European session for three days last week, it just didn't feel the same. I'm not sure if it was the time difference or the fact that I was in a makeshift office, but today I felt back at home and back in my comfort zone. I also ended a 1 win out of the last 9 trade drawdown streak from last week by bagging 2 winners out of the three trades taken today. More importantly than ending our drawdown, (which would have happened eventually), we proved once again that each pair should be looked at as an individual by simultaneously entering the GBPUSD short and the GBPJPY long.
Trades like these are often difficult to take, especially when you're a young trader. At first glance we automatically want to assume that if the GBPUSD is going long, then every other GBP pair should be long as well. It takes time to break this mindset, but trading days like today start you on that path to free thinking.
