Nobody else to share with....my sorry tale of today.
Tuesday was great....even the 2 silly longs last night. Went long this morning during the dip...2 longs at different levels. Then we dropped some more. Decided to hedge with a short ....and did not tick force open ...thus both longs got closed. Since it was a large amount relative to my account, I then was forced to take a smaller long a bit later and made up about a third of the loss.
Then went long again....no stop loss...over confident in the bull. Well, we had the drop and drop, and my account took severe critical strain by the time I saw it. Then all tempts to save the day went for a ball...
Now we are nearly back where I started this morning...and I am not able to jump on train...since I said if I loose this money, then will only trade next year again....thus not touching my other capital.
This is hard ...and flippen sad
Hope you make it through!
