    Default [PIC] 2011 Year To Date Gains & Losses - (92% Loss)

    I'd like to thank the following stocks for taking away $8398.32 of my portfolio's gain for the 2011 year. Out of $9,153.61 gains for the year, I gave back $8398.32 which is a 92% loss. This list includes of my biggest losers, but are not limited to $THQI $CXLT $OREX $PCS $CBAK $AVNR $ADLR $INVE .

    takes a big man to show his losses.

    too many of my friends only brag about how their recent acquisitions are doing, but i'm guessing they took a bath the last 4 months.

    $755 is probably more than you could have made at a bank...so good job!

    Always a learning process anyway when it comes to trading.

    Why not think of it as an 8% gain? Keep up the work and continue building the gained percentage.

    Sorry to hear you got hit hard... but like what has been said before, it does take a big man to show his losses. Take this learning experience and turn it into profitable knowledge in the future. Best of luck, at least you're still up $755.00.

    Thanks guys, yeah you'll only fool your self if you are hiding your loses, so I figured I'd post here so people know this is a very tough business. It's very unfortunate that 9K was put together by a lot of 50-100 dollar gain trades. Lots of them, and the sad part is, only a few trades took the whole thing down. It only takes 1 or 2 bad trades to really lose a big part. I've started again relying on 50-100 dollar gains, but will be a while until I get my 9K back.

    Damn, that sucks :/

    Sometimes I get "emotionally" attached to a stock and I keep thinking that it will bounce back and I'll make a gain. Unfortunately that's only actually happened a few times

    Lots of back and forth! Made $900, but gave back nearly all on another trade, and extra $10. I'm going to use this thread to track my FML until I become consistently profitable.
