June has been a tough month since I started. All red days so far. I had a good review with my mentor yesterday and was given light on what I need to work on. Slowly but surely we will get this month back in the green.

@tradewithvlad I got in touch with support. They said they are aware of the problem and are working on it.

@Raylbc27 Mine started working yesterday. Not sure if that's the case for everyone

Another red day but small. I got stopped out 3/4 trades with a small loss. It could have been a bigger loss because some of them had rug pulls. I am working on cutting losses with stop losses so I don't have big red days like before. I rather have controlled small losses than bag hold and let my losers get out of control. I have a daily max loss and once it hits, I am done.

Red day today. Nothing bounced out the gate. Had a lot of selling off but no bounces on the panic. Traded 3 tickers and all were red. Today was a little bit bigger of a red day than I would want but all good. I cut losses and set up stops. I got caught in a quick rug pull on APOP which led to a bigger loss than I wanted.

I have made a significant amount of my loss from WTRH by holding overnight. It feels good to make some money back but the process was completely flawed. I needed to be more patient and wait for plays. I could have easily failed and I would still be in the red.

One thing I didn't give myself credit for was how much better I was entering trades. If it weren't for the big losses, my trades would be good ones overall. She mentioned that even though I don't see the improvement personally, she, on the other hand, has seen a much bigger difference. That was a huge sigh of relief.

After all that, I had a preplanned phone meeting with my mentor. We went over my trades from the last 3 weeks and she told me things that I needed to hear. Things that helped get me motivated again and my mindset in check. After the horrible morning I had, I felt like total garbage. She told me my trades have been improving since the last time we had reviewed. She gave me very helpful advice that I think will really help me. I told her about the loss and she told me it's something I will have to work on. It has to be something that I do not something that she will tell me and I'll all of a sudden start following rules. I know what I have to do and I am going to stick to the plan.

I had one of the worst trading days ever. I lost total control of my emotions when I lost big on IO. I averaged down and paid a hefty price. I doubled my shares twice when it was moving down and didn't cut my losses. I am so disappointed in myself. On top of that, instead of closing down shop, I decided to jump into another stock that was done running and bought into a wall of seller. I knew I had to cut losses but I chose to hold it like it was supposed to do what I wanted it to do. When things couldn't get worse, I transferred more money into my account since I was out of BP for the day so I could roll the dice one last time. I went in big with WTHR. I let that run down as well but towards the end of the day, it made a comeback and I am currently swinging it overnight. If I end up making money on this trade, it would be such a disgusting win. I seriously couldn't believe what I did because I have set rules and I threw them right out the window.

I didn't let the trade come to me. I just hopped in thinking it would run with the news. When I make back what I lost today, it will be a relief. Right now I am just wondering WTH was I thinking.

Man, emotions took over crazy with $APDN this morning as I am reviewing my trades right now. I am so pissed off because I gave so much back. A week of grinding. Only thing to do now is keep my head up and learn. I am so glad I am trading with small size. I would have lost so much if I hadn't been trading small. I guess my thought process was it has news, running up, and might pull a CAPR like last weeek and just do a dip and rip. I will bounce back from this so lets keep going.
