If someone starts flaming you PM me with a screenshot of the incident and I will ban them if its legit. Do not flame them back, it makes our work as admins harder figuring out who started it. So if you flame them back, you may get banned too.
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 03:52 PM) Everyone is entitled to an opinion
@  dasa : (29 May 2017 - 03:51 PM) It was an example of a bad deal bins = bad deal
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 03:51 PM) *to risk
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 03:51 PM) @dasa Read lower, i siad bins is a hobby of mine, not to risk 1M on an offshore broker would be stupidity
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 03:50 PM) @Barnabee As I said, EVERY business is a gamble
@  HAWK : (29 May 2017 - 03:42 PM) ;)
@  Barnabee : (29 May 2017 - 03:37 PM) the gamble is is theres world war and a nuke drops on his houses
@  Barnabee : (29 May 2017 - 03:37 PM) every business is not gambling, for example i know a person whos business is buying and renting houses, real estate is basically the safest business on the planet
@  dasa : (29 May 2017 - 03:01 PM) because why would any serious businessman risk for example 100000 of their money to win 80000
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 02:47 PM) Every business is a gamble, so why differentiate it
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 02:46 PM) Alright man, later
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 02:46 PM) Yea bins is basically gambling, that's no prob for me
@  Tripack : (29 May 2017 - 02:45 PM) tc
@  Tripack : (29 May 2017 - 02:45 PM) movie time :P
@  Tripack : (29 May 2017 - 02:45 PM) Oh boy I better stop here I start to sound like loot, lol
@  Tripack : (29 May 2017 - 02:43 PM) when does dealing with money ends being a gamble ?
@  Tripack : (29 May 2017 - 02:42 PM) ok there seems to be a general disconnect between gambling vs hobby, or maube gambling can be a hobby
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 02:41 PM) heh
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 02:41 PM) So how I can stomp you as well?
@  ZeusDCS : (29 May 2017 - 02:41 PM) Yes, bins will be there to make some money

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…
