Hi everybody. So many interesting threads and excellent posts - really thought-provoking. I'm quite an inexperienced novice trader from Russia. I've been now for three months trading in stock and mostly index futures in the Moscow exchanges. My psychological problem, as I see it, is that I do not feel elated when obtaining a profit, even a considerable one, but any loss, however small, gets me really depressed. And on experiencing a drawdown I believe myself to be just a clueless, good-for-nothing moron - and feel that trading is just not my stuff, that I don't at all have what it essentially takes. Is this situation unique to me only, I wonder?
