I've been having an alright year, was up every day but 2 this year, till today (gross positive...net negative several other times w/ fees). Anyway was down a bit going into the close and pretty much figured the market wasn't great oh well, it happens. A market I trade goes 00 offer...total buy but I'm like what the hell I'll work a bid, I won't get filled....so I go 9.5 bid, very small 00 offer (like I said they were a buy). well I hear my machine go off as I enter the order. I hit the 9.5 bid (i meant to join) w/ a 60 lot (futures). Sounds like its my fault and mostly it is but there is a software glitch I won't go into for a bunch of reasons. Anyway... Before I realized what happened the market goes back 0 bid...practically no offer at 0.5. I try to take whatever's there at 0.5 bid...get nothing. Market keeps going, long story short I'm paying 1.0 on 60. All said about a 3 grand loser in a few seconds. Great. Ironically, I haven't traded great the past two weeks and I almost feel like this was the slap in the face I needed to get my ass in gear. So pretty much, I can't wait for Monday morning...next week should have some nice movement...and I plan on being in every good trade I see. Funny because every cycle of great trading I go through comes right after a period of trading 'not so great' capped off by a bad loser. I trade mediocre for a week or two, have that capitulation loser...I get my shit back together and tear the market apart. Whatever the reason I don't know, but I can't wait for monday. Cheers.
