I have so far nett positively, and similar took losses, but Profits > Losses very month running for 1 year Problem is 3 years back when i was started trading, whenever i take a loss or $200-$300, I wld feel bad, damn bad. My day sucks bad. There was once I took a $2000 loss on LVS and I felt like dying + suiciding. Just yesterday CAGC, a China stock resume trading after halting, delisted out of NASDAQ, and becos I had took up quite bit of derivatives positions prior halting, ended losing big around $2k+. Though 2k is a only small percentage to my portfolio, its the same amount of loss back then, but I no longer feel the pain as I did 3 years back. Is this normal ? Because I have some degree of comfort, taking $100-300 losses no longer feels bad, but rather I am happy becos it simply means I cut the bad bleeding fast and let winners continue run. Does any successful traders share the same feeling and is this normal ? Soon I will touch the 50k mark and eventually 100k, and thus my losses will start to mount up, just want to get some validation and confession !
