Zut alors Peregrin Took, I could save myself a lot of money ūüėģ

Quote

From a psychological perspective it was¬†Freud¬†who made the first serious contribution to the psychology of gambling by claiming that gambling was a repetitious substitute for¬†masturbation. He argued there were many parallels between the two behaviours including the importance of ‚Äėplay‚Äô, the exciting and frantic activity of the hands, the irresistibility of the urge, the intoxicating pleasure, the repeated resolutions to stop the activity, and the enormous feelings of¬†guilt¬†once the activity was completed.¬†

She started out as a trader and ended up getting a proper job as a career coach / psychoanalyst lol.

Notice that EVERYONE abandons trading as soon as they can possibly find something better.

Towards the end she talks about a Manhattan psychoanalytical outfit 'curing' schizophrenia by talking.  That is not a mainstream view ... she is quite possibly a chancer and a quack.  But a well-paid one no doubt.

I lost my nerve today.  If I had kept my stops where they were and let the trades run I would have made money.  (Except on the Nasdaq, which reversed sharply, but that has turned into a shorting opportunity on the day - so probably will get the money back.)

Here we go, I've got enough mojo back to try again next week :)

Helping people to cope with schizophrenia with talking therapy yes, CURING it I don't think so.

You only in your second year? Lucky you

Call me when you're beyond year 3 and still not making bucks - then we're talking :D 

 

You think I should try another year and continue to be a cash cow for the winning 5%? :)

When the trader click on buy IG sell and when the trader click on sell IG buy

Like this, trader click on buy and set a stop but IG change to order to sell short with a take profit at the same place as the traders stop

IG lives off desperate, gullible, greedy punters like me.  There's a well-known secret in the financial services industry, and it is this: the only people who consistently make money are the brokers, advisers and other Shylocks and middle-men who take home enormous commissions, fees and salaries :)

The stock market is the cancer of international financial capitalism that is bringing the world to its knees and putting us all into debt slavery.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever‚Äôs first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame. ¬† ¬† ¬†
    • US Dollar¬†(DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback‚Äôs advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the¬†Euro¬†and the¬†Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data ‚Äď the Fed‚Äôs preferred inflation reading ‚Äď is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today‚Äôs GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the¬†DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the¬†British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy. ¬† The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead. USDOLLAR (DXY) WEEKLY PRICE CHART ‚Äď APRIL 28, 2022 {{THE_FUNDAMENTALS_OF_BREAKOUT_TRADING}} What is your view on¬†the US Dollar¬†‚Äď bullish or bearish? ¬† Apr 28, 2022 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Strategist
