Another day, another loss.

Zut alors Peregrin Took, I could save myself a lot of money ūüėģ

Quote

From a psychological perspective it was¬†Freud¬†who made the first serious contribution to the psychology of gambling by claiming that gambling was a repetitious substitute for¬†masturbation. He argued there were many parallels between the two behaviours including the importance of ‚Äėplay‚Äô, the exciting and frantic activity of the hands, the irresistibility of the urge, the intoxicating pleasure, the repeated resolutions to stop the activity, and the enormous feelings of¬†guilt¬†once the activity was completed.¬†

She started out as a trader and ended up getting a proper job as a career coach / psychoanalyst lol.

Notice that EVERYONE abandons trading as soon as they can possibly find something better.

Towards the end she talks about a Manhattan psychoanalytical outfit 'curing' schizophrenia by talking.  That is not a mainstream view ... she is quite possibly a chancer and a quack.  But a well-paid one no doubt.

I lost my nerve today.  If I had kept my stops where they were and let the trades run I would have made money.  (Except on the Nasdaq, which reversed sharply, but that has turned into a shorting opportunity on the day - so probably will get the money back.)

Here we go, I've got enough mojo back to try again next week :)

Helping people to cope with schizophrenia with talking therapy yes, CURING it I don't think so.

You only in your second year? Lucky you

Call me when you're beyond year 3 and still not making bucks - then we're talking :D 

 

You think I should try another year and continue to be a cash cow for the winning 5%? :)

I just had a brilliant ideaūüôÉ

a new IG reversed account 

When the trader click on buy IG sell and when the trader click on sell IG buy

Like this, trader click on buy and set a stop but IG change to order to sell short with a take profit at the same place as the traders stop

IG lives off desperate, gullible, greedy punters like me.  There's a well-known secret in the financial services industry, and it is this: the only people who consistently make money are the brokers, advisers and other Shylocks and middle-men who take home enormous commissions, fees and salaries :)

The stock market is the cancer of international financial capitalism that is bringing the world to its knees and putting us all into debt slavery.

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The¬†US Dollar¬†has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the¬†USD¬†has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However ‚Äď price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in¬†EUR/USD¬†or¬†GBP/USD¬†might return and, in a related item, how will¬†USD/JPY¬†hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan‚Äôs Ministry of Finance? Oct 4, 2022 | Full article on¬†DailyFX James Stanley, Senior Strategist
    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¬•145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback. ¬† ¬†Chris Beauchamp¬†|¬†Chief Market Analyst,¬†London¬†| Publication date:¬†Tuesday 04 October 2022¬† EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with¬†EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The¬†GBP/USD¬†continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and¬†moving average convergence/divergence (MACD)¬†have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¬•145.00 It does look like ¬•145.00 is the ceiling in¬†USD/JPY¬†for the time being ‚Äď repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¬•139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‚Äėclear the air‚Äô, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh¬†bullish¬†momentum. Source: ProRealTime
