Nice job on the recovery
Sounds like you’re well aware of what you have to work on! That’s great!
But it doesn’t make it easier. I’ve learned that as well!
I think the mental aspect of trading is so underrated and underappreciated by the majority of retail traders.
I went back to the account that I had blown trading options and I went through every losing trade. If I had a simple rule of getting out at x percent loss I would have been in great shape.
But that calm analysis in the trenches is very difficult to do.
I started mental Jiu-Jitsu with myself always finding an excuse to stay in a losing trade. If I finally got out I would be doubling down to make it back quickly.
I think for me it has to be more like Tai chi than jiu jitsu. Slow and deliberate.
Good luck with the head games!! Sounds like you’re on the right track!
