Sometimes luck just isn't on your side.
Dispite basically trading to my plan, my portfolio is down more than 10% for the week, and it's only Wednesday.
If the market had tanked, I might expect something like the following...
This is today alone:
-20%, -11, -9, -9, -7, -7, -7, -7, -6, -4, -1, 0, 0, 0, 0, +3, +9
Monday was not too different.
Because of this I'm in a bad mood. I know the whole next 1000 trades, stick to the plan etc etc but I still feel rather depressed. I should have been doing this long enough not to feel this way!
I think part of the problem is that things have been going along pretty smoothly, then in a couple of days the good work is undone.
If I had not followed my plan, or thought there was a problem with my plan, then I could learn a lesson. But I just feel like i've been dealt a bad hand...
Does anyone have any advice for staying up beat when things are not going well?
