The $167 loss in KWK got to me. I had 3-4 chances to get out at break even but I held on. Then I tried trading R on the short side but ended up getting chopped up for over $100. Negative emotions such as fear, frustration, and anger are hitting me at this point.
I cut my size down to 200 shares and watched. I know I need to find something that is moving. I saw home builders making new highs with volume. I focused on VMC, a sector related stock. I managed to recover most of my losses. Then a few scalps in HLX brought me to positive territory. I end up making $100 today.
Today offered another lesson on the importance of discipline. If I was selective in my trades I would not have to go through the trouble of making my losses back.
