For me, this February has been a crazy ride.
Some early month losses put me down to -4.5%, near the point that my monthly stop loss would kick me out of the market. I then clawed my way back up to +2%, but a string of losses over the last two days mean that I finished the month at -1.44% of starting capital. It’s been a while since I last finished a month in the negative
Was this all special for me? Have I let my personal circumstances affect my trading? Or were the market conditions over the last four weeks genuinely quite challenging?
