Hi guys,

 

Today I feel like a total wreck. When yesterday I turned on the TV and saw the news about Carrie Fisher's death, I found myself as shocked as I have ever been for the last couple of months. No, my life is not that perfect that nothing bad ever happens to me, cause shit happens to me, you know, but somehow it does not touch me much.

 

This is why it is so unusual to me that a single death of the woman that I have never really known can shake me so much. I was doing to keep trading yesterday and today, but somehow it seems impossible still. A lot of my pals say that they share that feeling, cause I guess she was the very first crush for every boy of my age.

 

I don't do therapy, so here I am, among other traders, who have dealt with different situations in their lifes and I want to ask, what do you do when you don't feel like trading suddenly? Should I push myself and convince that it will come back once I started? Or maybe it is better to wait and get over it, cause I can lose in an eye blink and do not give a damn about it?

 

Thanks

Sorry you feel bad. This year has been really crazy.

 

My advice is...don't trade. Give yourself some time for those feelings to settle.

That is a very honest post and congrats for that.  I would say wait a bit until you are in a better mental position, or use a demo account.  Because you will blame all your losses on your mental state.  Stay away from live trading for the moment would be my recommendation.

Trading is business, non-emotional in general so if I was you I would not let anything to affect it. It is good to have a break once in a while.

Take a day or two off, do something nice for yourself. Trading is work, many people don't go to work when they are mourning, if they can avoid it.

Trade from next year. Enjoy the new years eve a bit. Thats my suggestion.

 

Why do you trade anyways? So that you can enjoy life. So take this as the enjoyment part.

i chose not to trade because when you're devastated or even tired you can make a mistake that will cost you a lot of money…
