TTIM did exactly as I expected. I had my limit order in at 13.84 for 600 shares. Guess what the fuck happened! My fucking, fucking, fuckshit, dipshit, motherfuck cracker jack piece of wanker banker TRADING PLATFORM decides to fuck up. It tells me I got no buying power. I slam that god damn piece of cunt filled button again but the dam dipshit motha fucker decides to fail on my ass again. This time i contact my broker and 20 FUCKING MINUTES later they reply that there was a technical glitch and restricted my BP even though it shows the ‘right’ amount on the platform. I seriously felt like throwing a chair. The perfect set-up comes along and only god can explain why it had to not work at this time.

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. I counted to 10 and vented my anger at my phone to a dear one. Poor lady had to absorb my wrath. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Then I took this trade below: FTR

No surprises there this one did not work out. The set up was perfect but the gods were not on my side. Lost 10 cents on this. Kept it tight because it started looking iffy and was not going as planned.

Trades: 1
Accuracy: 0%

Loss Restriction – A lesson learnt the hard way

So check this:

Realizing I’m not respecting my trading rules I made two changes this weekend.

  1. I put my retarded emotional trading charts on SPEX as my desktop wallpaper to remind myself to not be a clown
  2. I emailed my broker to set my max loss at 150 per day. It is done now. Seriously happy about that.
