Dunces are pre programmed with this particular psychological bias. To give away opportunity of greater gains is just feckin stupid.

Its good to know this sort of ****ed up thinking is being passed on to the latest generation of traders, it looks like there's a few good years left in this racket.
LOL, it has absolutely nothing to do with moving stops.

You crack me up!

No offence, mind. We can't always get the right end of the stick :-)

You should take some time to think about why you cant take risk, and why you self sabotage.

Success is not going to happen until you do, or maybe your content as you are, in which case feel free to ignore my advice.
