End of Day emotions:  The morning reaction on shorting QQQ was great as I highlighed on chatroom that NVDA was fading and that played well for those QQQ and GOOGL shorts. The biggest loser on the day was IWM but I gone with calculated risk and kept my stops in place, so I’m happy by respecting my risk management.  That fade after 11am, gave that extra cash flow with SPY and QQQ shorts, so I’m happy very happy. I’m staying disciplined, not risking much and following my trading plan. Need to keep my focus and repeat the process over and over again!
