“My biggest challenge is resisting the urge to try and legitimize my emotional responses…”

Hi there,

My biggest challenge is resisting the urge to try and legitimize my emotional responses as other than emotional responses. For example, I take a position and the stock drops immediately. Day 1 is explained by volatility. Day 2 triggers intuition to sell, but I “know” my choice is right so I stay in. Day 3 is a “red day” in the market so the drop isn’t about my decisions; it’s just the market. Day 4….well my decisions were correct so there’s an endless stream of “rational” reasons that allow me to preserve my decision choice while losing money. Now I realize two things 1. It was always about fear, hope, and ego, 2. None of it matters in trend following because, if I had been trend following, I would have had a plan and been out on day 2. Otherwise, a lesser challenge is mining the work of trend following for how to start with smaller account.

Cheers,
Mark
