nice post @insane19
If you don’t mind I’d like to address some of the points you made.
which one is that? If you are talking about driving Bugatti after a few trades like it is shown on YouTube or Instagram… nope, sorry, not going to happen
The one who has lost or the counterparty of your trade (broker, business, another trader,…)
If you avoid offshore brokers the chances of this happening are very small.
it is a science and an art. But don’t expect hard rules, set in stone, valid all the time. Like the rules in the Matrix, “some of them can be bend, others can be broken”
Consider the following rough example
Gambling- scalping EURUSD, trying to make as many trades, every day, stop-loss is a lot larger than take-profit.
Trading - waiting for the right day when higher volatility can be expected (probably a direction can be expected as well), checking if EURUSD is the right vehicle, hunting for trade with 1:2 or 1:3 risk-reward.
The difference between gambling and trading is how you approach the markets
Yes, it is, not always, only from time to time But it also random. If it was rigged all the time it won’t be random
Now seriously, you had an emotional response to an unpleasant event. No big deal. Happens to all of us. It will happen again to you in the future. the only thing you can do is to try to limit the emotional response.
To continue you must accept that this is the way this game work. If you can’t accept the pain and deal with it trading might not be for you.
