I will say this - after "x" years of trading - I am still saying "I should have" & "I knew it" & "why didn't I..." I also spend a fair amount of time indulging in self-deprecation. Trading, it turns out, has been an ongoing attack on my self-esteem. And yet I persist. This is psychological warfare.
I tried early retirement for 4 months....sitting in front of the computer screen everyday for eternity was not for me.....back to my day job but trading on daily charts ...now making money, lots of it, with very little time(10 minutes a day) spent in front of computer screen...."Rich in Time"(unquote, SP Brown)
