What is the most days you've been down before (and you are a profitable trader)

  1. I like to think myself as a profitable trader, but geez down 8 days in a row now. Geez!
  2. you are probably doing one of the following:
    1) buying at or near the open.
    2) buying a stock after the market makes its famous 50 point spike in 2 minutes
    3) shorting just because something is up and not taking the small loss
    4) getting in and out of a stock too many times
    5) in a stock for no reason;i like to be in a stock that has a catalyst of sorts. i just don't blindly buy a momo stock just because the market id moving up or down. has to be a reason.
    any questions,feel free to pm me.
  3. one mote thing SKY- a protable trader is a relative term. you need to be consistent. being down 8 days in a row certainly meets the consistency criteria but too bad its the wrong direction. lets concentrate on getting you back on track by getting on base with a bunt or a single. no home runs.
  4. 3 (in a row).
