@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.

Imagine being delighted by a nice $830 gain this morning making this your best month ever considering it's only the 8th. Then getting a phonecall to come into work and then being walked out for something you can hardly even believe is cause for termination........ Every level has it's challenges, and there is no lifetime membership to anything these days, this is the digital era and we pay dues monthly. In other words, never get too comfortable or complacent. As for me, they'll have to pry my mouse from my dead hands before I stop trading. Honestly I normally wouldn't write anything on here, but I want to remember this day and I want others to know about it as well. When I finally make it, this will show that it wasn't at all easy, and demons were at nearly every turn. #letsdothis

I hope you came back strong. I'm not having much luck so far, this holiday isn't helping much since no one is hiring until afterwards.

CADC chilling still at 2.53 - still uncertainty and looking for something to give it direction - often its sector driven.

Dude, I was overtrading as well....when I saw I was not doing well, I moved money out of my account and forced myself to fall under the PDT rule so I had to take 3 months off. Give that a shot man, it will force you to not take more than 3day trades in a week. It really helps you build patience to wait for a good setup, you just can't keep trading otherwise

@fmaxgarcia yes - think that is the way to go! ty for the feedback - I definitly need to wait for better setups

Just went exactly through the same thing...I had a $200+ profit turn into a $150 loss for wanting to go bigger. I even thought to myself, "I should take profits now", and decided to wait a bit longer. My new rule is, whenever I get that feeling "I should take profits", I will be out, no matter what.
