Re-read through the topic. After I finish re-watching HTMM going to YT posted above and re-watch Trader Checklist. Pulled the trigger today and took my biggest loss to date

@Kody Damn that sucks. I'm really sorry to hear that. I pulled the trigger today, too. And made a loss as well. But, at least in my case, it felt good to enter a trade again and to execute it as planned. Even if the result is negative. I stopped out where I planned to do. This counts.

@Nodrog Right on man. I had some major technical difficulties on my end, exited 20 cents under my mental stop. Price just moved too fast.

@Kody I feel your frustration. Try to shake this feeling off over the weekend and come back refreshed on Monday.

@williammorris16 Yeah, thank you. I guess it does really come down to being a new trader. 1. my confidence isnt great 2. Im not properly planning before trades. Thank you for the help.

I miss dozen of them a day. You can’t trade them all and you need accept the idea your eyes can’t be everywhere. If you miss trades on stocks you are watching closely then its another problem : you might have the fear to pull the trigger when things are setting up. That means you’re most likely not prepared enough. Prepare your trades more. If the things you’re looking for are lining up, you shouldn’t be hestitating. Try visualization. Be in the trade even before it actually happens. Good luck

don't focus on what you've missed. that'll destroy you. focus on opportunities.

Buy 50 shares next time, or end of day if it holds near it's highs. Buying 50 shares at $2.19, it would have to drop below the opening price down to $1.19 just for you to lose $50 which is unlikely to happen right away. Think of potential loss first. Would you be up a lot if you only purchased 50 shares? No, but you'd be up over a dollar a share right now and still going. It's not about the money, it's about the process. Take comfort in the fact you were dead on, and use that ammo for the next p

you have to accept that loosing is quintessential when it comes to trading. Learning how to lose is probably the best thing that can happen to you right now. don't learn to make money. learn to lose small. embrace the losers. they make you a better trader.

trading smaller won't help you if have the wrong mindset from the get go. By trading smaller what you're actually trying to do is minimizing the fear of losing. You don't want that, its the wrong mindset. its not about minimizing the fear, its about accepting it.
