Don’t worry guys I’m still around. Just having some trading troubles. Long story short I lost a lot of money on the DAX trade, more than the profits. Capital plus profits was at $25K before the whole DAX debacle. Lost about $20K, so was down to around $5K capital last last Wednesday. Have made all the capital back ($12K) plus $2,595 in profits since then. Account now back to $14,595, meaning I’ve made $9K in 8 trading days since I blew up. Had two days with over $2K in profits. It’s going to be quite a journey to make back the additional $10K lost but my mindset is in a good place now. Thanks for the concern @baemax023 @ria_rose @dpaterso
Stupidest thing was I took all the profits set aside and infused them into the account so as not to blow up, and even added an additional $9K. Never doing that again (I hope). Also, a frustrating thing was DAX started going down the day after I blew up and wasn’t able to ride the swing down. Oh well.
It had been a while since I blew up before this time. Will try to make sure the latest is going to be the last. Funny thing though, it’s taught me a LOT and forced me to rethink how I trade, which has forced me to make some improvements and progress a bit.
I won’t be posting as often here, need to put in more time studying and charting. But i’ll make sure to drop by every now and then.
