Cheer up Dmedin, it could get worse.. You could be shorting the Dow. Or voting for Trump. As for revenge trading, simply give it a miss, over trading same. Losing money is a fact when trading, just as making it is. Suicidal dispression? Never. Desperation? Methinks not.  Believe in yourself, she'll be alright mate (as the kiwis say). 

Take a break and clear your mind. Walk or swim or just go somewhere conducive to relaxation. Give screens a miss, then come back, trust your instincts and rationale and knock some trades out of the park. Rage trading is bad for the body, soul and wallet. 

Don't forget to relax and take time for yourself.

You forgot to add a 6th option:

6) Looking for attention from other traders with sh*t posts

A very apt description of yourself, Mr 'I don't look at charts but I develop algorithms that ask questions of themselves because that is obviously far easier' :D

I only wanted to post to trigger your OCD issues.

I know you like you to see your name against every post on the main page.

So have you been sitting on your 4rse all day letting your algo rake in the money while I've been sweating my guts off trying to trade and sharing most of them on the forum for other people to fade?  Then you come on here and answer one simple question about API keys and then tell me that I'm sh!t.  Well aren't you the big man who knows it all :D

For me they are useful, yes.

You don't think you've ever posted anything useful, do you?  Not even remotely ...

We all loose money and we don't go crying around like babies.

Post your history from this week, that will be useful for some. Maybe they can learn from your mistakes.

I've been posting my history all week.  Go ahead and post your wonderful algo written in C# so we can all get rich. :D 

Not interested in any of your fancy-schmany 'advanced risk management' library or algorithm cr4p.  I know my limitations.  And if you're not interested in charts then feel free to f*k off.  :)

Your personality is very well defined in many articles. There is one big reason behind Facebook's usual way of creating a user in an online forum. People speak very differently when they can't hide behind a username. If you had to use your real name you wouldn't insult like that. You have shown yourself in many posts over the years, don't worry, we know who you are.

To be fair to him - I went through a really bad period in the 2000's where everything I looked at turned out to be utter **** - my personality is that of precision, exactness etc and it took a lot of years to overcome this with markets being as they are and I did rather rudely challenge people claiming this and that - so I can see where he's coming from

That being said there's no excuse for some of his posts and comments

In your case I would call you a c*nt to your face.

Since you're Swedish.  :)

1) Because it works and more importantly 

2) Because it annoys the hell out of you

For me it's No 2 :D 
In life you either need inspiration or desperation. As I don't have any inspiration in me, desperation it is :D
One day I will make it. Say that again. One day I will make it.
Until then, oh that desperation gives me chills every night

Also why is everyone so angry at dmedin? - Without him the forum would be empty and fun-less.

You should thank him for keeping it going after all. So thanks pal 🙏

actually more people would contribute if they felt they could express an opinion without some ignorant little troll jumping up and down insulting and flaming them at every opportunity.

The perpetual negativity in the face of any evidence to the contrary gets extremely tiresome and leads people to better trading forums where the moderators actually take an interest and stamp out blatant flaming.

I don't think so, Tom.

Still waiting to see some of your trades, BTW.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
