Quote from beachhouse:
S/he is pulling your leg. Nobody who lost that amount of money would come onto a website chatting about the loss. A big loss is like a severe sickness, it simply strikes a trader down physically. I know a guy who didn't eat for a week after a heavy loss. And I heard a hedge fund guy who cried like a baby after a heavy loss.
I think you might be surprised. Red_Ink's only post in a long time was a big loss a few weeks ago. Sometimes folks post losses for various reasons. Guilt, a show of honesty, or simply a warning to new traders as to how hard it can be. And many more, I'm sure.
