Andrew- thanks for your karmas! Yes, position size is key. It's all about risk. If you're risk averse, trade modest amounts. Once your trading execution skills are good, then you can ramp up the amounts you bet. It isn't a sure thing so you have to 'self-insure'. Very important. Baby steps, baby percentages and baby sums, at least for me!

After a sting of losing trades I keep coming back to this page as I appreciate your own thoughts through your experiences, I thank you for the time you put into explaining exactly the same feeling that am currently experiencing. Although I can say that I have not yet found a set up that actually works for me, I continue to track my trades feeling sure that one day the light bulb will come on. Again thank you for this insight. Best wishes and safe trading

Lots of good nuggs of wisdom here. I'm almost 2 months into the challenge now and glad to come across a post like this. It's refreshing to see some long bias, everywhere I turn it seems that people want to drop the hammer on stocks-ha! I can see where you are coming from with understanding the mindset of a short seller to help with long setups--Spikeability and Short Stocking have given me some perspective on this, as well as SEC filings and the book the art of short selling by kathryn staley se
