when is it hit?
how does it feel?
dead cat bounce or rocket ride to the moon?
rock bottem for me:
the endless revolutions of the mind
the illusions of causality, free will, existence, and time
tossing gains, holding losses
taking profits â the grand mother of all losses
the opportunity costs
speculating scared without sufficient risk capital
losing your money then losing your nerve
vast schism between belief and action
youth and vitality wasted and funds depleted
Sid, sounds you like have paid the price of admission! This is good, not bad. From here you can truly learn to trade responsibly and follow system discipline. Traders who stick around find immense growth and character building outside of trading. I take a break and read "Trading for a Living" and "The New Stock Market Wizards" when I hit psychological walls. I took a 10 mile walk into the everglades the other day to regain perspective. I use a trading journal to document my trades as well as my mental state on a daily basis.
Trading is a mind/body/spirit eco-challenge and will make or break you.
"Trading is a mind/body/spirit eco-challenge and will make or break you."
I agree. Well said.
long long before you ever get there quit and do something else, like go sailing, go to orgies or rob a bank.....
sid I was wondering what your other post was. (2 out of 3 were on this post) then I did some research...
You probably should try sailing or orgies, as andrasnm suggested...
