I don't know how to begin this post, but there is a saying that says: Things come in pairs. Well, today's loss completed that pair. If you read my post a couple days ago, you know I lost $10,950 last Friday. To get it back, I shorted 5 lots of CL at $74.20 last night, hoping it to drop to $72. I was confident that this trade would work out, because the entry looked like a perfect lower-high. I didn't have a stop loss, as I was convinced a drop would come in the morning. But the market went the opposite way and gave me a another blow. When I woke up in the morning, the market already went up a lot, and then I watched the relentless rally this morning IN HORROR, IN DISBELIEF, IN FREEZE, IN PARALYSIS, IN TOTAL DENIAL...... When I finally accepted what had happened, CL already went above $77. It came down a little bit, but it didn't show any sign of sell off, and then it went back up. Finally I accepted the defeat and covered at $77.19, taking a whopping loss of $15,000. I believe losses truly come in pairs. The only silver lining of the loss of $25,950 is that it made it easier for me to quit trading.
