@LibertyBelle Thank you! I've been making some big mistakes lately. I revealed some of it in a blog post on Friday. If I had just held DSGT until the end of the day and sold I would have made a small profit instead of a $0.06 loss per share. I'll get there! Was hoping for some small gains to pay for STT and the add-ons each month, but I'll get there.

Accountability post 10/04/2020-11/22/2020 There is not much to report on my accountability for this period. My mother's cancer took a turn for the worse, and she ended up passing away on 10/14/2020, two weeks shy of her 75th birthday. It was a very sad time for me, and I was occupied with making arrangements and helping my dad to transition to a smaller apartment. I traded twice with options over this period, but I lost big both times. I should have stayed away when I knew I had no time or energy to focus properly. After the second trade, I forced myself to stop until I can get back into the education. I am starting over this week. Starting tomorrow, I am going to start going through all of the video lessons and webinars. I have missed a lot and I need to get my head back into the game and move on.

So sorry for your loss. I've been kind of similar, but different circumstances over the past 6 weeks and finding myself having to go back through previously watched video lessons. I know you will do it and be successful.

There is something that I didn't get though. As long as I know when you buy a stock the one day and want to sell the next day it does not count as a DAY TRADE so if you bought $BRTX on the 18th you easily could've sold it yesterday or today

@Rivas I sold part of it on the same day. Sure, I could have held it all, but I wasn't able to sell at just over $0.30 the next morning when I had planned to sell the rest.

Blogging our mistakes helps a lot! It sucks to relive it while it still hurts, but later it is helpful to look back on it to reinforce the lesson. It helps others learn too. Good job documenting it. Be proud of that.

Many thanks for this. Been on a losing streak, and it's encouraging to hear successful traders like you say to not trade when the setups aren't there, and to avoid confirmation bias. Many thanks amigo!

Accountability post 09/21/2020-10/04/2020 I have watched all of the live webinars and the emailed video lessons the past two weeks. I finished the DVD, "SEC Filings". I have now finished watching all of the DVDs. I started to re-watch "Trading Tickers." I started the free Intermediate Trading series on the Investor's Underground Youtube channel. I have been making watch lists when I feel motivated, and then I watch the markets the next day. I haven't seen many good setups, but the ones I have seen, I paper trade them. I feel my motivation returning this week, so maybe I will get a few more real money trades in soon. I made a new daily trading schedule, as I had to revamp my workout program. My back is still bothering me, so I have switched from weight training to yoga. I can do that at home, so I wanted to put an hour aside during the mid day instead of before the market opens. It keeps me from trading then too. That's all I have to report this week. I'm still taking a little break to try to get my mind in the game again. I feel like I am past the worst of it now though.

@LibertyBelle Keep up the good work. You're one of the few traders I've seen that is profitable with a below 50% on their trades. You are definitely doing something right. :-)

@Vicv21 Thank you for the encouragement. I am starting back up with my education this week. I lost my mom to cancer about a month ago, and I need to refocus back to trading.

Accountability post 08/18/2020-09/20/2020 I took a little time off this month. My parents finally moved here to Vegas where I can help take care of my mom. She is fighting stage 4 cancer. To add insult to injury, I am one of 18,000 employees that were permanently laid off on August 31, 2020 from MGM Resorts International. I worked for this company for 23 years, and the past few weeks I have suffered from major feelings of identity loss. My trading has suffered a little. I have had a losing streak, but I have not chased any losses. I have tried to limit my trading this month instead, so that I can help my mind recover from this blow. I am glad that I have been able to stay green overall, even though I am at a $550 loss for this month. I am working on getting my head back into the game, so writing this accountability post is a start. I have managed to view all of the live webinars and emailed videos for the last month. I have finished the 30 Day Bootcamp. I finished the DVD's, "Tim Fundamentals Part Deux" and "Penntstocking Framework" I have finished all of the DVD's except "How to Read SEC Filings", which I only have one disk left to watch. I am still reading "How Yoga Works" by Geshe Michael Roach. I am halfway done with it. I am halfway done with the Taxes for Traders course with Tracy Coenen. I have been watching the video course and reading the book. I am still listening to "Market Wizards," but my gym going has been spotty lately. I overworked my lower back muscle moving boxes, so I'm afraid I over trained a bit. I took a week off from lifting to heal.

How did you get to the Tracy Coenen course? I have emailed gone to the website with different browsers and can not ever get a response or anything from there. I imagine getting a local accountant would be a way to go too, but what do you think of that course?

LibertyBelle Sep 20, 10:32 PM

@gil_fl It is a good course. It covers a lot. She talks about futures and options too. Long term investments as well. When I signed up for the challenge, they sent an email from Wordpress with a link to reset my password. I just clicked on the link and made a new password and I have been able to access it ever since. I will help you tomorrow. Maybe we can figure it out for you.
