forcing so many trades, not focusing on my rules and paying the price for it. need to stay motivated, and only look for plays with dip buys near support higher lows and double bottoms. need to stay away from stupid plays with horrible risk/reward. Keep studing and one day everything will click. until then when you trade make sure you are trading with an outlined risk from the start and stop trying to force plays that are not there. sometimes I can buy a stock for no reason or buy without a risk in place and that's the stupidest thing I can do.
