    What I learned losing $138,923.66

    hey waterscalming,

    Thanks for sharing. I appreciate the honesty and effort that you put into posting this.

    I don't want to scare you, but that sounds almost like a gambling addiction. There's a big difference between trading and losing some money versus compulsively taking huge risks and walking away worse for the wear each time.

    Honestly, is this something you're showing progress at? It doesn't sound like it. You've blown up each time and the scale of each one seems to get worse.

    Did your broker go bankrupt this morning?

    Pepperstone is based in Australia. They cannot accept US customers.

    What I learned losing $138,923.66

    For me, if no one has ever read my blogs or comments I tend to have probably pretty epic or should I say un-epic swings in success.

    I can't say that I ever achieved, or succeeded with financial market *wizardry* as some may call it. However, I tend to think (or at least believe) that I have become a little bit smarter trading.

    That is of course with the proper help, and understanding provided re-enforcement of my opinions of how to initially trade.

    I started to trade, then shortly afterwards got married. This being said, a military enlisted lower ranking Soldier (I I don't really have that much to live from initially if something goes financially wrong.) Two combat deployments being a Human Resources Element dealing with personal issues and problems along with spiritual warfare tends to open my eyes more being curious of the final out-come or why can't I mentality.

    I have lost probably (wife kinda tallied it up...) close to around $200-300K initially due to my pure idiocracy putting large sums while deployed not knowing heads or tails of what I was even doing. (I.E. heads it goes up, tails it's going down that simple and stupid.) then I got *wise* (subject to opinion) I started to read a book actually on trading with high-consistency candlestick profit patterns by stephen bigelow(?) it made sense, but took a time for me realize what it was saying.

    I then decided to make a little deal/offer to Satan (take it for what you personally believe) and say to him, "What would you want for me to be financially successful as a test-drive" Well as circumstances would have it. It appeared he heard me, and I started to take 2k, and bring it up to 14-15k in approxiately 3-4 months time. I was pretty ecstatic, but the downfall was he wanted me to be apparently be emotionally wrecked at work, physically injured with no possible cure or fix in sight to being able to run or even walk properly without a limp.

    Well, then I got wise (or should I say dumber?) I went to the dentist to get my wisdom teeth pulled, turned out they could only pull one. Upon being under the influence of the pain medication/numbness I said to Satan that the deal is off and I don't want to have your help anymore. Well, I soon enough changed 15k back down to 2k and then to nothing again in the same day or two when said that.

    Afterwards I started to trade again, this time with borrowed credit thinking if I can just regain the same margin I can make the same amount again and more then return the borrowed credit.

    Well, needless to say... I ended up just losing that amount and more each time.

    Yet I seemed to constantly build the impression it is actually possible to make 10% or so per day with the right understandings.

    And here I am now, still seeking to find success...

    Knowing I take higher-risks than comfortable, feeling cramped for available time remaining before my contract with the military seems endless of failure for that wishful thinking of military retirement pay and enough to live off of then becoming a successful servant for GOD or secondary job retirement doing something else that I would enjoy much more potentially.

    I don't enjoy trading so much as I myself feel trading is one of those requirements to meet a need.

    I would want to plan for the unknown hopefully until I am at around, 90 years old with a spouse living off of the trading dividends in CDs and all the other more secure less risky, less unknowns involved.

    Yet I seem to think I need a trading partner to confirm my diagnosis is correct, the properly scale back my risk to reward margin size with the proper time-frame I have available in how to achieve my personal interests.

    This partner thing is something I am just recently coming to figure I really need but uncertain to knowledge of how to achieve one with my own stubbernness and idiocracy for words.

    Are Traders PREPROGRAMMED TO FAIL?- A 6 part video series

    Indeed great videos. They actually initiated a total new processing in my so called reticular mind. I was going through this dilemma of too much thinking while trading. Thanks for this.
