CrazyTrader I can understand your euphoria at the moment, if you are ahead. The thing is that it will not always go your way. The market changes, we do too, and ups and downs will be a part of the over all trading. Why not be at peace and except the inevitable of the fact that this is what trading is all about, ups and downs will happen and we have to be in control and cool in the down turn moments and the same goes when we are ahead of course. Protect our self and minimize losses when we are down and lock in profits when we are having a very positive period in our trading.
I used to see it a lot when new traders would come in,there up Hugh profits in there first few months,they can't believe their luck or skill,you can see it in their eyes,they begin to believe there untouchable,it's human nature to feel great about winning,no one likes to be wrong,then it starts to unwind,then some day you notice their not at their desk,someone else is,it takes trainning to be able to stay netural win or loss.
