I was wondering if anyone wanted to share remembrances of their best or worst trades, and what they learned from them. I think perhaps these aberrations to our normal trading activities can show us, occasionally, what we did right or wrong. And if we can share these instances, maybe we can share our lessons both good and bad. And hopefully LEARN something from them. Now I realize that for the most part people will first think of their most successful or unsuccessful trades as their best or worst in terms of results. These are not necessarily the trades I mean to inquire about. Generally, these trades are more a result of luck...good or bad. Takeovers, breaking news, whatever....these are just things that happen that we have no control over, and tend to even out over the course of a trading career. So I am talking about trades that were made with planning (or lack of it), and how these trades came to be. What made them successful, or disasters? What was learned from them, and what knowledge was retained and implemented in ones' trading technique due to them. And of course, I would also like to hear about trades that were not necessarily your own. witnessing a trade and learning from it is just as applicable. Any contributors out there?
