Today was a good lesson but I honestly am a little proud of myself for actually trading. I used to be so scared on pulling the trigger that I always missed a lot of trades. Today I traded $CLD for a loss of $29 dollars (after fees). I bought the breakout attempt on strong volume but it faked out and came back down. I should've actually dipped bought it at around 6.15 or earlier on the dip at 6.05. Still great and valuable lesson.
I also made it Ch. 15 of Reminiscences of a Stock Operator. Such a good book. It actually helped my out with my anger against the stock market.
"... but I never lose my temper over the stock market. I never argue with the tape. Getting soar at the market does not get you anywhere"
"To be angry at the market because it unexpectedly or even illogically goes against you is like getting mad at your lungs because you have pneumonia."
