This is my third time trading. I went belly up the previous 2 times with small 10k accounts (money I could lose without any change in my lifestyle.) I have really re-defined my trading rules and am doing a ton better in my 3rd venture into trading. Currently, I am up 150% on my starting 10k account. Recently, I pulled the plug and withdrew everything except my starting 10k. I was starting to trade like a manic, bending the rules because I have so much "Free" money to risk. I am now very pleased that I did that. Hopefully, I will not do that again, if I am lucky enough to build my 10k back up again. Has anyone else experienced this? Will it help? I am so pissed I did not follow my rules, and it cost me some money. It was a small amount but the principle really bothered me so I decided to reset. Comments welcome. Btw, I am reading Trading in the Zone. That is very helpful. I highly recommend it. Regards. P.S. It is amazing that almost any simple system will work. It is the mental aspect that causes people to self destruct. I keep working on that every day.
