Decided not to trade last Friday because of the string of losses and have decided to take all of next week off and come back strong November 1st. Trading is a lot more than just having a good strategy. The last couple weeks have been user error’s with me specifically. Although I don’t use a lot of Tim’s strategies- the mentality he has is important to listen to. PROTECT your gains. Don’t trade setups that are not As or at least Bs (since I scalp more). Do NOT get greedy. I got used to the 10k days and wanted more and more and more to the point it got uncomfortable and I was risking more / taking on setups I shouldn’t. I got careless this past week with a SPAC play and a sister stock- didn’t look at all of the news and was quick to get in. DO NOT get complacent. Always remember where you came from- when 1k a day was awesome and 3k a day etc and remember the things trading allows you to do. You can make money (a lot of money!) from your home and in just a few hours a day. It’s truly an amazing thing. I am coming back in November with a green light, yellow light, red light mindset. Everyday starts with a green light- go make your minimum profit goals safely, then yellow light goes on where there’s no need to trade the rest of the day unless the setup is an A. Then red light is after 5:00 pm no trading ever and red light when I’m busy with other things and not 100% engaged with trading. I think this is going to help me grow consistently again and safely moving forward!

Been really digging your trade review podcasts with reverselong, you're gonna bounce back from this.

good for you to take a step back. Some of my biggest losses were when I was trading while preoccupied by household problems that required my attention.

I really enjoyed your live trade video. I am 4 months into the challenge and have a small account, but I was drawn to the short patterns as the most reliable for some reason. I gained a lot of insight from your video. Thanks for sharing and for the transparency.

Hey Kyle, beautiful video with such awesome transparency. I have a question about the March 16 loss that you took. You mentioned you didn't trade again that day to avoid revenge trading. When that happens, are you still watching the market closely, or are you checking out completely? Thanks again!

super helpful video to see someone as skilled as yourself being challenged by the changing market - really appreciate your humble attitude and willingness to share your bad trades - I learned a ton from this video!

Thanks for the video, that was pretty cool and I've never seen questrade's platform before. This was especially nice because I'm working on morning panic bounce plays except you trade much larger size. Thanks again

thats a sweet looking platform actually, do you pay extra for the level 2? Also does Questtrade have recording, or did you record that in another program? Thanks for the video Sean, I got right into it, I was panicking to sell right along with you 🤣

SeanLacap Jun 20, 12:05 AM

@KenMcA Yes, you have to pay extra for level 2. There is a built-in program in my laptop which allows screen recording.
