Now that NQ is back at 2001 levels, they should also return the contract to 1/2 point increments ($10) and get rid of the HFT scalping noise.

Quote from Instynct:

In my situation it is as if there is this losing mentality that has had a grip on me. This bastard wants me to see 10 pt unrealized winners turn into losers (yes that has happened recently)… enter a long entry before price has come to me and get out right where I know buyers will step up because it’s too painful to hold on… buying at the top of the run instead of waiting for a pullback because of the fear of missing out… I can go on but I think you get the picture.

It’s been about a week since your post and I believe I’ve reached bottom, or at least getting real close. I’ve not considered myself a loser in your definition, just someone in the process of becoming a winner. I can do better than this. Be patient with me, as I’m a slow learner. Take care and thanks for your post.
Possibly it is a losing mentality…, likely it is guilt

Here are a couple of suggestions to resolve it Sir…

Seek out that which is causing it, and forgive… even try to make amends


If that is not an option…

Sit quietly and write out a letter to that which is the cause…, spell and spill out everything…

Then in the closing paragraph – forgive yourself

Once the letter is complete, file it in your filing cabinet for safe keeping

fwiw – I have two such letters

=========================================

We can’t control other’s beliefs or actions (past, present, or future)….


We can control how others affect us…

We can control our actions…

We can forgive our self…

And

We can let go and move on


Maybe I'm all wrong on this... maybe I'm not... Best you be the judge Sir

how about dime increments to reduce slippage?

RN, your advice is much appreciated. Fwiw I don't think you're wrong on this.

To get things out of the way first, here are last week’s results. Pretty much more of the same BS, self inflicted wounds, particularly on Wednesday (2/29).
