Looks like anotber winner to me. Easy money
I do not make $$ easily.
I trade 12.5 hrs of my day 4-5 days a week to eat.
When trying to make it from trading my wins are always too small,
and my losses too big.
It is impossible with the action my emotions force me to take.
I don't know how some people overcome it?
LIke you, V8, Like dragon, like espip....
I really don't.
How did you not make money on a 200 pip breakout on the g/u. With long term trend, huge momo behind it, broke out asain box. Talk about a perfect setup. The only way your not making money is by your own self sabotage. But hey all recoving addicts always know better then those that have long term sobriety, haha.
You lose, cuz you choose to. End of story. Know one can help you if you dont help yourself.
I guess I should have taken my Aunts advice and started trading in 93' when I was 24.
She was trading Datek online and thought it was the cats meow using a dial up modem.
I was a lot younger and dumber then, maybe It would have worked.
The guy "we" rented a house from looked at us and said: "Oh the days, to be so young, dumb, and full of cum".
There is an addiction but it is NOT to trading.
I've come to the point I could give a rats ass about trading.
Trading is nothing more than a vehicle, like the one I drive to work.
It's not a Ferrari, and even if it was, It would suck having to drive it to work every day.
I'd rather keep the one I have sitting in the yard.
The addiction is to my programming about $$, AND the habitual thoughts these beliefs produce.
I am an addict, but it is definitely NOT to trading.
Do you really think my brother likes drinking alcohol?
He is 44, has no place to live, (literally wanders the streets), it has ruined his life.
But has it?!?
His leaned (or chosen) coping methods that became habitual is what ruined his life.
He chooses to steal the Listerine out of my medicine cabinet NOT because he knows no other way to cope, but because it has become a habit.
