Horror Show

'Horror Show'

The second of my '2011 Low-lights' and it really was that bad a day! Again, from my very first week, this post shows how far away I was from being a disciplined trader, with a couple of terribly unprofessional mistakes and my biggest loss of the entire year........


  1. Hi Sultan

    I did post this comment already but it didn't appear.

    I just wanted to say that I thought it was brave of you to post the "Horrow Show" entry up in the first place, and also to repeat it here today. It also resonates with me as it is horribly familiar in my own betting. If you don't know what I'm talking about, have a quick look at an entry in my own blog called "I'm So Ashamed" and you'll see what I mean.

    I suppose the only thing we can do in these situations is to try and learn something about ourselves, although I'm not sure that's really true.

    Anyway, I wanted to wish you all the best in your trading for the new year, and to let you know how much I've enjoyed reading your blog.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks SoccerDude! All traders go through days like that at some stage. The key is to not repeat those mistakes again, though that is not as easy it sounds! In the heat of the moment, what we have learnt can go out the window ina split second of madness and that's what makes trading so hard. Hopefully one day, we can look back and laugh at how bad we were.

    Good luck to you too and happy new year.
