DislikedAlright, conclusion of the 2 weeks of no profit. My personal experience. I am overtrading. I was so exited of good numbers and trades so I wanted to get more. So following trends I got caught with my pants down. Eventually I am closing week with 0. No loss no profit. Good trades AC, NU, GC and CJ today. Bad bad bad trades EU. No matter how hard I tried to be disciplined I am failing to do so over and over again. Stupid Mentality. Trading from the phone is worst idea of all. But I donít have other alternative. I have to adjust to that. Time is important....Ignored
I don't trade well from my phone either. I monitor trades from it if I have to, but generally I close them out if I can't watch them closely. I have a medical practice that involves a lot of house calls and emergencies and I find that occasionally I'm pleasantly surprised, but usually more often than not, I don't like my outcomes. I did figure out how to use a free app called Teamviewer so I can remotely watch trades from my desktop at home and that has helped, but it's still not ideal for me on the small screen. I've using more limit and stop orders to help combat some of the screen watching. Have you tried that? I'm sure others have better ideas on it, it's just what I've been doing.
Trading pushes buttons I never knew I had... and I'm used to working under severe pressure; but I do find that meditation and observation in that time of reflection help me immensely. Like Davit just posted today, I'm learning to let my DD's breathe and not close out so quickly when a move goes against me if I've studied and feel like I've made an intelligent decision. No one can be right all of the time. Heck, we all deal with that in our daily lives - we mess up -we make bad judgments and lousy calls. I'd rather lose a little bit of money than hurt the ones I love. So, kick back, reassess, and figure out your mistakes. You can do this but you can't let yourself be psyched out.
Don't give up!
