AGGGGH Please someone learn from my mistakes shorted QLGC yesterday @ 35.62 because based on the day and the day before's price action ....seemed to me to imply imminent support break. This was an overnight hold and I don't usually do them but I felt VERY confident about the trade (experience has taught me when I'm feeling very confident about a trade call to be more aggressive.) (long story short) My target was 34.62, but I exited @ 35.20 and 34.95.......had I waited with a simple trailing stop I could have gotten out easily at 33.00 AAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH The fear of loss of profit in my mind is what keeps a break even trader from becoming a profitable trader (which is apparently my situation.) not net losing but not net winning. Moral of the story: If you have an edge (no matter what it is), be risky with your profits always because you don't have any idea when your profitable trades will become enormously profitable trades....and those enormously profitable trades will overcome the losses and still leave you with net profit.
