I remember believing for the longest time that certain traders must be superhuman to produce those big fat P/Lâs you often see or hear about. They obviously had obtained the Holy Grail and had the Traderâs Mindset so fully mastered that every trade, whether winner or loser, was executed perfectly day in, day out. I discovered later that there is no such thing, and no matter how much experience you get, how comfortable trading becomes, or how Holy your Grail is, the market has a way of disrupting your objectivity at times. I thought it would be fun to start a Bloopers thread for experienced traders to post their favorite âDOH!â trade of the day or the week or the month, so the beginners out there realize that you no matter how much you believe you finally "got it", you have to remain vigilant at all times, or the market will be ready to pounce on your moments of weakness! My last blooper was Tuesday, when I was ready to position myself for a breakout long trade off a pullback deep into the channel that found a ready supply of buyers. I knew the price at which I should enter to give me enough room to escape at or near break even if the push back up failed to have follow through. I hesitated and hemmed and hawed and before I knew it, price was a-movin' without me! I chased the entry and accomplished the feat of buying 1 tick from the pivot high of the move, then sat on it until the full stop was hit. DOH!
