I know this is going to generate a lot of stupid responses, but I hope it turns into a constructive thread. We all have our up days and down days but how do you cope when you take a crushing hit in the markets? Personally, I try to do something constructive (i.e. exercise) but find I'm so mentally exhausted I can't even do that. Instead, I'll usually end up doing something with my girlfriend, friends, or maybe I'll even call my mom as corny as that might sound. "Hey mom! Guess how much I lost today?" Perhaps it was one of those days when you couldn't make a successful trade to save your life. Or maybe it was the day every major bank simultaneously upgraded the company you shorted and held overnight. Whatever the case, the blow to your equity was enough to make you question your system or even your skills as a trader. So what do you do to get your confidence back for the next day?
