I am new to forex and new to BabyPips! I gave myself 20 working days to see how I fared. After factoring in losses, I am overall 5% up. Not much in dollar terms, earned couple of hundreds. I day-trade on a part-time basis.
10 minutes ago, I withdrawn my capital and my gains from my broker. I need to take a break. It is mentally draining. Moreover, after today’s market [21 Sep 2020]( including commodities), went deep into the reds, I made some losses. (If I were to exclude today’s losses, I would have been 10+% up).
Today’s losses were shocking. I lost my cool and overtrade.
How do you handle mental fatigue? I hold a full time job. Obviously I am not ready to quit my job. haha.
Please advise. Thank you gurus.
Edit: To add on, before I used real cash, I traded on a demo account for 2 months.
