Does anybody think you trade better when your account is underwater? I do. I had an account valued at 12k. Its value dropped to 9,000 on my first day of trading. I made it all back in a week. I was up +700 at one point. Then I had a series of draw downs back to 10,000. Then I made it back in a few days +800. Then I had series of draw downs back down to 10,500. That brings us to today. Anyway, I think I trade alot better when my account is down. When my account is up +800 for instance, I tend to think I have an $800 buffer so I make risky trades. Its getting to the point where I think I should just withdraw my money if I am positive on my account. It is frustrating to make money, lose it, make it back again and lose it again. There is something psychological about it I'm sure.
