Quote from Handle123:
I have touch screen for my newly made Platform. I went to restroom and come back to find I am long over 2000 contracts in ES, there was a fly in the room and it was on the monitor, the cat was pawing at it, each time he hit the DOM, it placed more orders. It was one lucky cat as I got a couple ticks out otherwise "Cat is the other white meat". That messed me up for a few hours.
I have police tape across my door, GF came in under it to tell me the garbage is all over the front yard cause of the wind, that cost me several bucks but I am smart enough now to turn off the computer for a few hours so I can forget. I now use barbed wire.
I was short couple years ago when that huge melt down occurred, I never saw a ten point one minute bar in ES before, got out and just watched remainder of the day.
Some years back, lost my satelite feed while in a trade, called to get out. Went in back yard to find an illegal alien unscrewing the dish, he winced in pain when I kicked the ladder over and was sitting on his back waiting for the police.
I use to throw things when I lost, one day I threw my ball, had thrown it thousand times and it never done this before, it must have hit brick that was exposed from all the previous tosses, it came flying back and hit my in head then broke the window. Fireman laughed so hard, one of them puked on me from his lunch.
And any time I have a huge day, I trade lite next day or not at all, market senses over confidence to try to take it all away and then some.
