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.

Very painful lesson certainly.

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.
