Just daily rat race sort of stuff. Comes with the territory, the real lesson to be learned is how you handle it psychologically and place those thought somewhere else and focus on the upcoming. Trust me, that is the best lesson to take out of it. This will happen throughout your trading career and I can't remember how many times I've been in a similar situation only to let it impact that day's trading.
Those little creeping thoughts in the back of the mind are more power than we realize. Trading really comes down (After you technically have it down and understand your system makes money) psychological discipline and mastery. The fact that I don't know of 1 decent Forex and Oil trading online 'training' that focuses on psychological should speak volumes for the so-called 95% club!
It's almost beyond strange. If you keep yourself in the 'flow of opportunity' mindset (There are books on it, etc), you end up making a lot more pips. In the 'zone' so to speak as Mark Douglas would say in his book 'Trading in the Zone' (highly recommended if you haven't read it, or 'Market Wizards')
Yes, I read that book. Very good one but too wordy for my taste. When I was reading it I did not have all the tools so psychology was not as important. Now I have tools and psychology is important. could have been out with nice profit by now. but that's ok. we have a good range now even if it won't break I think there might be something else.
