A month later and your sentence still makes me laugh as hard as when I first read it. Thanks for the honesty, Adaseb; good to be in the presence of others who stuck it out, even with rough starts and through the tough times.

7 months later, STILL makes me laugh, thanks Adaseb.

Yeah I still remember those days.

I would enter a long trade with a 25 pips stop loss, get stopped out, and reverse the trade using the same stop loss, get stopped out again and reverse the trade again out of rage, and get stopped out again.

I remember it was like a holiday and the days range must of been like 30 pips but I somehow managed to lose close to -200 pips that day.

Even though it was only like a $2 loss, I felt like the market completely drained me.

Lol, funny again adaseb!
Thanks for keeping it real. Yes, I definitely had a long battle to get rid of my revenge trading attitude.
It's good to hear a story like this (if you don't mind me saying so), just to hear it sometimes that we all go through this.
Also, importantly, is hearing the stories of how even the better traders can have their times of going back to bad habits and screwing their accounts up a bit.
Let's me know that no matter how confident I become in my trading, slipping back can still be a possibility if I think it is okay to get careless, since the overall trading account has made so much profit.
