I’m only human

20 Aug

Today, I took a 50% loss in a penny stock that shouldn’t even have happen in the first place.  I bet big and yes, I lost $6,000.  This was due to my own greediness and carelessness.  Also, I lost $2,000 in another penny stock.  Haven’t I learn my lesson from before?  $8,000 down the drain is unacceptable.  This has been the most frustrating trading year for me.  Lots of mistakes and misfortune, through it all, best to stick with the big boys.

For the past month, I’ve been tired… tired of taking care of my stocks.  I slacked off.  I held onto some stocks that I should have never gotten my hands onto.  I’ve sold some stocks that should have been a keeper for life.   I need to get my priorities straighten out.  I”m only human.

Thy shall not listen to others.  Thy shall stick to what I know best.  Thy shall forget the losses and move on.

    ouch. yes best to just move on. one of the reasons why i stay away from that stuff is i get lazy and leave it for days/weeks sometimes. besides i like being able to sleep at nite =P. get some rest and sounds like you need a vacation to recharge 🙂

    I’m sitting on the HVU etf which I bought $3000 worth in March, but now it’s worth $200 lol. I should’ve sold earlier when I had the chance to make a profit. We all make mistakes, but that’s part of being human. At the same time I’m sure we both have stocks that made money too 😀
