REAL JOB Vs Trading
It's 7pm local time and I'm writing from my office for the first time. Time has been a scarce commodity - I'm one peer and one support staff short, and the organization is rushing to meet a major project deadline. Doesn't help that I'm holding 2 portfolios.
Trading has been BAD (see below). Not catastrophically bad, just very annoyingly bad. I still love trading with all my heart, mind and soul but lately I've started to develop very bad habits like being just a little too RELAXED. So I did the total opposite yesterday thinking that I was rectifying a problem. The result was horribly unsatisfying. I felt 10 times worse making 100 after 4 (5?) trades than when I lost 2k in a single trade. I have no idea why, and I know there is no need to dwell on it.
Running now. LW and Anon, will reply to your comments later.
