I have had two realized trades lately that have crushed my progress. 1 trade I had held and hoped for over a month and finally cut my losses. The other was a trade against the rules by shorting too early and got caught in a short squeeze. Total loss between the 2 is $3500. I need to quit forcing trades and study more and plan my trades better around my schedule. I am typically leaving for work right at market open which makes my risk that much higher. I need to start cutting losses sooner.
