I had about $125K a year ago when I started day trading stocks. Did well at the beginning, getting it up to $140K, then did horribly earlier this year, dropping down to $75K. Took a break for a few months, then started day trading again a couple months ago. I went on a hot streak of 9 straight days with at least $4K of profit, trading solely FNM and FRE, and I was up to $130K. I thought I finally figured it out. Then I went on a business trip for a week, came back and FNM and FRE were done. I tried day trading LEH, WB, MER, AIG this week and I had only one winning day. The other days I lost $8K, $20K, $36K, and $4K. Now I'm back down to $75K. I am very discouraged at this point. How do you recover from 2 blowouts?
