was having a conversation about some of the bad habits traders have and decided to post one that really stood out. when a trader loses lets say 800 on a given day,he will go into the next trading day with one thing in mind:try and get that 800 back as soon as possible. that will just create a disaster. first off,try not to take a big hit but if you do,tomorrow is a brand new day so forget about the previous day or else you will wind up spending the next month trying to get even. if i take a hit and the next day i can only make 200,i leave it like that and don't attempt to push the envelope.if the set ups are'nt there,they're not going to magically appear just because ypu have to make back 800 bucks.
