I thought I have enough knowledge to go into combat. I was young and foolish. I was easily influenced by the "guru" broker. "Trading was easy," says him. I got in with confidence. Unfortunately, I was badly injured. The sweet talk was far from the truth. It was a cruel battleground. You are fighting against the guru, master and Jedi that are far better than you. My last battle was Dec 2005.
Since then, I have gone back to training, built up my knowledge. Learned to be humble. Learned what have I done wrongly. Learned how to prepare myself mentally.
Now, I know on how to trade stocks. I also know on how to trade warrants/options. Last Friday, I am back into the futures. It took 4 years and 4 months for me to regain my courage to go back into battle. It took so long because I find it very hard to heal oneself when you have a mental scar. This time, I know that it will turn out better than last time.
