Quick note about good trading days/periods, bad trading days/periods..
I sometimes hear from clients, that they are not happy because after a period of making money and trading well they are now in a period of ‘scratching’ or losing a ‘little’. If this is the case you are doing well! Why (you may ask)? Because if your bad periods are small losses or scratch, you will be there for the good periods and the next leg up hopefully. However, if your bad trading days/periods include very large losses or drawdowns you may have to go back to the drawing board since the math will not make sense when it’s all said and done.
I have detailed more on the subject in an article I wrote a few years back, called ‘Survivor day-trader’. If you’d like a copy, please send me an email with name, email address, tel number. Please specify if you are a client of cannon or not. I will only email the article to those clients/prospects who provided me with correct information. Thanks for your cooperation!
Have a great weekend and take a break from trading to clear your brain and recharge. GOOD TRADING!
