Week 2017-05 – Report

Screening

Perfect this week with every day doing extensive scans, cleaning up WL etc.

Execution

Execution was daily and flawless. I noticed I had missed to update the qty on my SL after taking partial profits on RCL, but noticed fortunately before any unwanted exection happened.

Research

I was very clear that backtesting would not be my focus over the next few weeks, but I fell prey for a really interesting concept that gave my basic relative strength screen an extreme push – I should be aware that I am dangerously close to data-mining, but the concept itself makes a lot of sense and has clear impact on different data samples etc. Anyhow, I am still playing around with it. I am at danger to lose my focus on the other areas when investigating, but the fact that I worked for a few hours this week on it seems to be acceptable. I still performed my other tasks, so a little bit playing around should be ok.

I finished the Python course with mixed feelings. I did it ahead of times and completed all assignments w/o any outside help or looking up things. On the other hand there are a few concepts I am still struggling. Already started the next course, only did a 10min video yesterday, so will have to be disciplined not to lose momentum in the next days.

HR

Keeping meditation as a habit, still waiting for my cushion… I am doing 16min a day currently, and I am working on a balance between taking it as a challenge and feeling relaxed about it. I noticed that only feeling relaxed seems currently not enough.

I did sport but my performance was surprisingly bad in terms of running. Not sure whether there is some health issue.

I did not do any other training activity beyond the Python course, I simply have to acknowledge that I cannot overfulfill my expectations when my day job does not allow it.

Don’t break the chain works very well as motivation for now.

Admin/IT

Some work on the screen identified in Reseach to make it easily usable in Prorealtime

Quality

I checked my monthly report and found known issues I will not discuss further here.

Also reviewed my avg R per set-up etc. although the sample size is rather small after my latest clean-up and re-classification.

On Friday I noticed another error on execution: I had a buy/sell order switched but did not get execution. The positive aspect was I noticed it immediately when opening my TWS in the afternoon – on previous ocassions I was wondering about the strange color of the order… at least I learned this…
