Today was just one of those days…
Yesterday, I couldn’t do anything wrong with my trades. There were amazing trends in many markets but I focused on the Gold and Silver markets.
Not only were the trends strong but they were well behaved. Which means there were no frustrating whip-saw stop-outs.
Today, all those gains are gone and I ended the two-day run with a negative P&L on the month. Grrr….
So what’s the point of this post?
Just that if you think trading is way to make money every day or even every month, you’re probably still at the beginning of your journey. If you haven’t started yet, you might want to get out of that mind-set.
These give-backs and frustrations are part of the game. And you need to get used to it. (To be fair, I still am not used to it because it is an aggravating experience every single time…)
