“Kaboom” is all I have to say about today. Needless to say it was a really bad day for me, but with the loss I realized a few things. The 1st thing I did wrong was I traded the news releases, when I should have just slept in. They put me in a reactionary mindset and then I snowball from there, so from now on I’ll not trade (or just paper-trade) the news. The 2nd thing I did wrong was I traded full sizes when I shouldn’t have (again). The 3rd thing I did wrong was I traded for real during abnormal hours. Although I may have found the cause as to why abnormal hours are doing bad, and that would be because of new releases like what happened today. However I still need to go back and see if that is the case (or not), and hopefully I’ll be able to do that some time this weekend.
