Dislikedman, fuck this shit. i might just go back to stocks. 4 losers in a row. doesn't make any sense. even following the rules everytime. don't get it.Ignored
But losing streaks happen.
Even following the rules everytime (or thinking we are).
As weird as this can seem, personal cycles also move in waves, and we as traders are not always responding (physically, emotionally and intelectually) exactly the same.
One of those elements is usually the main leader in our own performance and when declining or at its lowest, will impair decisions that we make: overlooking a warning signal, clouding our analysis, or delaying our reaction time at entry...
In my own case, I've found that the emotional cycle is the one that incides the most on my trading. For everyone it might be different, though emotions are usually the strongest impairment in this field.
When getting the first loser trade, stop and go over all the steps you took, including what happened outside of the trading, thoughts, feelings, mood, etc. If everything seems ok, keep trading. If the next one is also a loser, take a closer look again at all those elements. I usually don't go past the second one and stop trading ASAP. I take some rest for the day and go back to demo so I can evaluate when the streak will end. Or also I check my biorhythm to see where are my cycles at that time. Don't laugh. It's amazing how everything is connected.
Never trade if you are not totally focused and peaceful inside. And above all, NEVER trade for a revenge after a loser.
Also, maybe your stops are too tight?
If you want to post your lost entries maybe we can understand with you what might have happened...
