What grinds my gears the most is the arbitrary movement of the market when my orders are placed.
Yes, I am a newbie and I am not always making losses but I cannot help but notice the high rate at which the market moves against my order when I’m on the wrong side of a trade versus the slow rate it moves when I am on the right side of a trade. This is very common after news releases. As with everything in this business there is always a reason for why it happened.
It really grinds my gears
