@Jasrai I started with about $12.5k, and added another $11k after I lost about half that initial amount.

Thank you for this post. I have locked myself into a money-losing pattern. Hard to break stupid, bad habits. This post encourages me to stay focused on what DOES work. Thank you again.

Looks like you got in either premarket or right at the open, couldn't tell exactly when. One thing you'll often see Roland and others do is wait 5, 10, or 15 minutes after open before getting into trades as stocks often haven't figured out what direction they're heading for the day yet. Especially without news on day, could've waited and then possibly gone long on the r/g move a few minutes after open. Obviously easier to say in hindsight but is at least one strategy to keep in mind for futur

Ouch, but at least you're controlling your exit/loss. Right off the bat I recommend using VWAP, not because it's a trigger for an entry or exit but because its a good gause of sentiment/strength. I also can't see the prices so it's hard to tell you where I would've been confident shorting with the best odds. Overall, keep it up man, I don't recommend trading the first 10 to 15 minutes because direction is really determined seeing how strong the retracements are then entering but hey we all have

Tough trade, but you should feel good about cutting losses quickly. That stock did look like it closed really strong day before, so not sure you could have done much different, just sometimes that strength doesn't always carryover to next day :/

Awesome!! I think you should record him when he barks and then use that for your trading. 1 bark = order filled, 2 barks = partial fill, 3 barks = order cancelled and one constant bark for cut losses quickly.

I am encouraged! Thank you for this post, for the reminders and for telling me that you used to use STT but that you use Equity Feed now. Thank you! I must do better on discipline and focusing on a smaller number of set-ups and STICK TO THEM without allowing FOMO to get to me! I know I NEED MUCH MORE DISCIPLINE!! I need to turn this losing ship around!!

Good luck to you on your journey, and may each day be profitable or at the least fun. Trading is Fun-da-mental, if it's not fun you'll go mental.

Thanks for sharing don't worry didn't laugh. Guess my main suggestion/feedback would be why trade hmny in the first place on that day? Didn't look like there was any news or volume, so you're more likely to get random results. Usually focusing on the most volatile and actively traded stocks produces the most reliable patterns and results. Happy trading!

@jww1019 Thank you for the feedback, I will focus on only playing the most volatile stocks moving forward.
