Yesterday, I was cocky, because I made a lot of money. Today, I lost it and then some. The stock took an unexpected turn of manipulation. It was the perfect earnings winner. When it kept going down, I stayed in it and lost $1,000. I figured it was market manipulation and that it would go back up. I was wrong. My point is that I ignored my own rules and didn't get out when a stock doesn't do what I want no matter what. Now, a wise person would have stepped away from trading. What did I do, I tried to make it all back and lost more. I refuse to become a statistic. Now, I know the rules. That is not what I am asking. How does one do what they know in trading and not let their emotions take over? Thanks in advance.
