Losing day but would like to make note of my progress. I'm following rules and trading more logically then emotionally. I didn't realize to what extent my trading was emotional. Not perfectly unemotional today, though. After some understandable and managed losses, I jumped in to GTH and it tanked. I was jumping in to a mover and much less careful probably due to my previous losses and how hot today is. However, things are also dropping like hot knives today as well.
Today was a mixed bag, but I noticed progress on how I handled losses.
I'm also a bit frustrated with how clunky etrade is. But that is also 100 percent my issue and I have to figure out how to work with what I have. They are not good on fills, and getting worse over time, probably due to free commission. I enjoy the free commissions because I can jump in and out of whatever I like, so I don't share the opinion that free commissions are bad. Maybe it's six of one, half dozen of the other, but for me personally I don't want to lose ten bucks just because I got in a trade. I don't want to have to make ten bucks to break even.
Just some thoughts, by no means complete.
