Ok I could use some advice from the experienced traders, This month has become a nightmare for me. I'm down quite a bit and mostly due to the last 4 days where I just have been getting jerked around left & right on both longs and shorts. I cannot get the moves I used to catch, I have problems closing out any profitable positions due to slippage and have been taking humongous hits on the bad trades. I'm not even churning, my volume has really shrunk (not even 20k a day for the last 2 weeks). I guess I'm not even going to go in to trade for the rest of the week and probably some of next week. I'm just afraid to even take a 100 shares in either direction anymore. Should I take a week or two off till this market gets better or should I force myself to adjust? I'm trading NYSE which treated me great before Feb/March and now I'm questioning whether I should ever touch it again. Anyway, I would love to hear how some of you veterans dealt with bad trading times like these.
