It is easy to lose lots of pips on days where you should have made lots of pips

BUT IT ISNT EASY TO MAKE LOTS OF PIPS ON DAYs WHERE YOU SHOULD HAVE LOST LOTS OF PIPS.

This is why 90% fail, and the other 10% struggle.

Yes, and then fear takes over you don't takethe next trade and thats the one that would've made a chunk back....

having one of those days too.

1st trade i shorted a stock, put on a trailing stop (idiot, do it manually) of 10p (over 1% of price)

the bid gapped away and traded 12p lower so my stop went to below the current offer and it triggered for a small loss, versus a 1.5% gain!

2nd trade stop got hit then that was exactly the high, down it gooooooeeeesssss

then i just p*ssed a bit more away.

One of those days when the plans not wrong but i am!

(cheers for letting me get that off my chest!)

That would be an interesting exercise - to set up a platform with zero commission and see how quickly people could get to zero.

Probably harder than you think!
