Nothing cheers me up like a good porn video when I am feeling down. Preferably Italian.

Then your comment belongs to that porn’s comment section. Just that some people with similar mindsets are upvoting doesn’t means such shitty comments are fancy here.

Anyone with any really relevant answers plz tell , would be really helpful.

After the shocking upset in the trade, have a re-look at the chart, the point at which either u decided to take the entry or might have blind entry (fomo, tip based, hunch, disposable liquidity etc.) see if that point was really to be traded or was to be avoided (may be because of near term resistance or support if short). Now as your position has turned south that means you have taken wrong position and it shall be a good learning curve. Look back at similar such situations in past, maybe go 2 or 3 time-frames higher for better view. Now try to develop a system which can make u aware of this precarious conditions and trade in small quantities for some time till your confidence is back, then you may scale up. Although they say that rear view mirror is clearer than windshield still past mistakes are prologue to our current situation. Happy trading :slight_smile:

If you do not pay attention to losses, then you do not need to motivate yourself.
Losing is just an indication that your strategy is not working. This is not the end of life, not the death of a loved one.
Learn to relate to losses easily and strive to improve your trading. Let the loss become the motivation to work harder and improve your trading system.

IN no way do watch a porn video after basically any downfall, it will only make your life much worse than it really is. IT’s a total disaster by itself and should really be banned anyway. I can recommend only one way which is to work work and work after some rest. No other way.

motivate … to do what? to start trading again?

look at some great profit making trades in social media. they might be lies… but looking at the profits … should raise your greed and soon you will be trading again and losing again. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

seriously… you have now admitted that emotions are big factor in trading. so … go and fix that. you could look at some other activities in your life … where you are successful and compare it with trading. how you are in control of things and how cool you were when doing that activity. now think what do you need to do to perform the trading activity so as to you mimick your other successful activity.

and … you should start with a very small trading capital and increase it slowly and gradually as you get experience and confidence.

Review what you have done wrong and try not to repeat that mistake again. I’ve been trading from past 2 months and done tons of mistakes and lost but along the way there were also profitable trades so that didn’t depress me much so with each passing day I try not to repeat those mistakes I made when I lost. You won’t perfect everything instantly.
