That's how I feel today.....I got caught trying to go short @ the open and the obvious happened...I feel like an ass!!...I guess that stupid GDP report suckered me in even though that kind of stuff is BS to me I bought into it ..Then on top of that, I presumptuously felt that the 10am New Home Sales could drop us lower even though the high was not "officially in"(and I f'n knew that) Damnit!!......totally don't know why or what the HELL I was thinking.... impatient, undisciplined, and careless. Plus I get stopped out for 3pts a full point over my risk!!! .....I clearly was not prepared mentally...The sad thing is; I've been long all week. But, I guess to use a basketball analogy; I was getting too fancy with the ball and "Got Ripped"....lol ...I know in theory I could have "got back in"...But, in my few years of experience( 5 years)..I learned never try to catch a moving train once it leaves the station...Anyway I Blame No one for my Stupidity and the only reason why i'm mentioning it here is because I just feel like venting so don't mind me....LOL..... Do you ever get to the point when you know what to do and you do it..Without out thinking yourself?..... I have these spells where I get so Damn cocky and complacent.... I start catching the exact H/L and then I want conduct personal seminars...lol.....I admire guys like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, or a Bill Belichick. Those kind of guys ALWAYS maintain that mental Edge...They never get too cocky or dance in the end zone...There very serious, disciplined guys...amateurs make wild predictions that are irrelevant to the moment in time.... There's no need for emotion when you know!!....Because intuition can be articulated and cultivated into a very tangible element in trading IMO.....Like I said I m just venting and I'll get over it but, I' just wish I could stop doing Stupid S*#t!!....But yeah whatever, I'll just go on another winning streak and then forget about it until of course I do something else stupid....LOL...I laugh but it's not funny.
