I'm writing this because I have a problem with my emotions. I am honest, and there might be a few of you who have a similar issue. Over several months of screen time and close examination of intraday charts I have been able to construct my own simple strategy which has yielded great consistency. I was able to accumulate several thousand dollars per month ($200-300 a day on average) by trading one ES contract. But I only need one or two days to wipe out everything. The problem is me. I am not able to control my emotions well which is primarily caused by fear of losing and hatred of being wrong. If a trade worked out I am content and move on to the next by applying objective analysis and thorough understanding of the market's direction. All strictly based on my strategy which suggests stoploss areas and targets. The irrational aggression begins once I took a loss (or worse, if the day begins with a loss). Something inside my head commands me to gain it back to end the day positive by all means. This results in reversing my position constantly at swing highs/lows or staying in the position attempting to make up for the previous mistake, only to see it turn to a loss also because I refused to close it at the target. What's worse is, I completely lose my bias and ability to do objective analysis. Suddenly I'm the newbie that takes one beating after another. I don't allow myself to accept a loss. Now the weekend is at my disposal to think about this terrible issue. I know the problem now but I am not sure if I can correct it. The initial consequence I have taken is to completely hide my trading results (realized or unrealized P&L, trade history, account balance) so I am unable to glance at the previous loss. Obviously I am emotionally frail and this personality trait has to be fixed somehow. Once I can control these mental explosions the strategy will serve me well without any further emotionally caused drawdowns. At least not big ones. Conclusion: Accept losses from time to time but move on.
