We all know that August trades went wrong terribly.
The losses were big. At times we did not have the courage to look at the numbers. Losses do that to all of us. We go into a shell. We know but forget that losses are part of trade and are meant as life lessons. It is hard to be philosophic about the losses but self pity will not lead us anywhere.
Let us look at the real bad numbers.
CALL BUYER :
Only 1 trade gone right out of 5.
PUT BUYER :
2 out of 11 right.
This is the worst performance of our trades in the last 4 months.
What to do from here on ? :
We have to keep going. Unless we keep going, we have no chance to make profits.
In my yesterday’s post I have given my own example of recovering from a much bigger loss.
We need the following :
Keeping the belief in our methods.
Keep trading normally putting the August losses temporarily back of mind.
Trade little less to avoid the stress.
It is already established that we know how to trade and we know our own strength and weakness.
There is only one way and that is the way ahead. We have to travel the path with confidence but aware of the pitfalls.
Enjoy the Sunday.
