@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.

Wow Jack... Thank you for sharing and in the process showing us all how our emotions can get us into trouble. Hopefully it will keep the rest of us from doing the same thing.

Jack, this lesson brought back some of the most painful memories I ever experienced trading stocks. I've been caught like that as well, but I just ended up becoming a bag holder for about 6 months. I was long the stock and it moved against me but I was full of "HOPE" that it would come back and I would get my money back. Well it never did come back and ended up going all the way down to the .oo5's then .004's and so on and so on. The thing is that I got into it at the .20's and it ran all the wa

@RichieRichW what a story... sorry to hear man. It really all comes down to cut losses quickly! Add to winners, NEVER losers, and never hold and hope.

Jackaroo I took a major lesson from this video. Thank you for sharing, this probably made you a 10x better trader then you were before, and to man up and recap it and make a video of it for others to learn from is class act!!!!! You already knew what to do and now I bet you will never forget it. Probably one of your greatest learning lessons that sharpened your skills even better for the future. Thanks again man!!!!

I am encouraged! Thank you for this post, for the reminders and for telling me that you used to use STT but that you use Equity Feed now. Thank you! I must do better on discipline and focusing on a smaller number of set-ups and STICK TO THEM without allowing FOMO to get to me! I know I NEED MUCH MORE DISCIPLINE!! I need to turn this losing ship around!!

Great post. Yes, we all have to be patient. I'm glad that I have a J.O.B right now to allowing the ability to pay bills and learn at the same time. Focus on learning and the patterns. The money will follow.

@JeepTrader Me too! Haha...got anice part-time gig going. I want a $1M dollars to keep me going for the next 60 years! Yes, patterns are SO important. They do happen aagain and again - some more than others. Patterns make our trades more predictable, more confident, more playable and bankable with less losses.
