I am tired this week. Survived revenge and chasing trading thank god. This week could have been bad for my mind set. Again - a week of too many family issues.

I lost my nerve so many times this week it was not funny. To watch a stock break out - fill me with a few cent slip - reverse in two seconds 15 cents - me hit the out button only to see it move 40 cents in what would have been my favor. I did the same on 3 YM trades also. Could of had a big week as always. When am I going to grow a pair of balls? My time of this planet is closer to the end than the beginning.

====================================
This week as in nearly every week was stupid for me. I started out on Sunday night to buy the first low and just play for a couple 100. Worked perfectly. Turned to Oil and lost 1/2 of my dow future gain. Then cooled until day break.
-
Got frustrated with the markets falling and play PG - about the only stock up on Monday. Top ticked a long. Hour later - top ticked a second long. So stupid.
-
Went long gold that night. Gained a little and bailed. No guts to hold and it could have been a huge gain. I had a lot of problems with gold this week being unable to take trades.
-
Bailed on a swing that will I think go higher just to relieve some of the mental pressure of this week.
-
All in all I am pissed at this week. Too many trades I did not take. Broke my trading rules on two trades and got hurt both times. Revenge traded a trade and got hurt.
-
Not happy. The only thing I am happy about is that I am nearly even for the year after making a good attempt to blow accounts up. I am correcting my mistake quicker. Now if I could only let my winners run more often.
