I feel with you. I too lost a lot, in my case in one trade. Then I took a 15 yrs or so break and thought about my totally stupid move. Not saying you should back off for 15 yrs after loosing double my amount but still. Take some time contemplating what you did wrong..if you did wrong even. Same trades will not just happen. I think you and me and a lot of more people do not understand money management. It just mean spend only what you can afford to loose to live the next day or next trade. I divide my trade account into 100 portions of trades and do not spend more then 1 of those portions on each trade. In betting one would divide it into 200 portions and for BO traders I would recommend it that too.
So you are not a monkey or stupid. Use your Brrrrain to save you instead of opposite. Stay with a maximum of 2 different strategys in order not to get into a drunk-monkey-mode. And with stay with it I mean a good full year or so. Trade live or demo, does not matter really if you use the money management mentioned above.
Don't start trading if you dont have money to spare. Some ppl think 200$ will do it. Divide that into 100 pcs and sure if you can trade that small amount go for it. I would recommend all the keen ppl out here to stop trade until they have 1k and can afford to loose it too.
BO is a Casino game coz of the Time factor. So stay out of it if you dont want to feed the beast..the Casino. They have the upper hand. Maybe HH can trade Bo and be profitable that does not mean you can. If someone like HH or others (Kazi, Randy and others) claim they earn money do ask to see there accounts if you are about to follow someone elses strategy.
That is the least you should do.
I have lost 2k in one trade so no one should ever follow me. Better yet stay away.
Seeing threads like this make me realise I got to keep at it, and keep learning and ultimately become focused.
Anyway, not sure why I have posted this if im honest......but Hubba, in you're one withdrawal you would of paid of my mortgage and cleared all my debts.........in 1 month
