Hello everyone,

Everyone likes to talk about successes, but this time I ask you to share some stories of failures, pain and mistakes related to trading for one social project I started.

It will surely help others and likely yourself too, because when we express something, we often find solutions in the process.

If you have a story or stories to share, please let me know.

Thank you very much!

the one thing i learned was, never trade out of desperation to earn money, oh quite a few years ago now, I am a single mum, with 2 babies at the time (now a bit bigger!) , trying to keep a failing business going. Although i did make a bit of money it was never enough to cover the full extent of the mess the business was in. when your desperate the scope for the mistakes that you make is infinite, eventually in 2011 i filed for bankruptcy. its the best thing i ever did. the stress was gone.

Now much calmer and fairly stress free, hopefully things are going alot better on the trading front!!!

Two memorable errors of judgement on the same share - Tepnel Life Sciences about 10 years ago -
1. bought on rumours of exciting development about to be announced
2. as time went on and price went down and nothing happened, I bought more

sounds a lot like a current AIM listed co, tiny bio company based in Cambridge....
