Anatomy of a Trade Slump

As we all eagerly await for the guilty Trump verdict and subsequent market collapse, I’d like to elucidate how little I know about trading stocks right now. The chart I am about to show you isn’t so much my trading day, but close to it. For the better part of the past two months, I’d been mired in a trading slump, chopped up and mashed into mush. I have these ideas in my head that do not work and then the ideas I see work, I am fearful of them and never buy. For example, I bought innumerable pieces of shit today but somehow watched $LOT go from +5% to +25% without once opening up a buy order. I just watched it climb as my fucking pot stocks and solar pieces of shit descended. Like 99% of my slump sessions, I closed just about where I opened, rendering my intraday efforts moot and fucking useless. I can chop myself into 10,000 pieces and fight and claw and invest my emotions into my efforts; but at the end of the fucking day I am going to close right where I fucking opened and there is nothing that I can do about it.

Now I know some of you tough guys are going to jump into the comments and try to teach me a thing or two, proffer me some advice in order to help me along the way. But, see, I don’t want it and will never listen to you. I have to make my own bed and then sleep it in, even if it means sleeping with dead animals and myself covered in lice. There isn’t a person in the world that I listen to and you’d be wise to fuck off now rather than me having to tell you later.

So here is my fucking chart.

That right there has been my life for the better part of 60 days. Tomorrow I might foray into a rally and feel better about recovering half of today’s losses, but then the next day will bog me lower again and I will have to endure these pangs for the rest of my life until I am dead.
