I’ve finally taken the hit for the USDJPY longs also.
Closed USDJPY long at 94.85, -181 pips, -$39,820.
Account is now at $18,734.
My mind is clear now and my account is also almost clear ;-( , but not quite. It will be a hard grind up from here, but I am determined to do it, slowly and carefully. But for the next few sessions I will stay out and collect my thoughts. I hope the small AUD long I have doesn’t give me too much grief.
Many lessons to learn here:
1. The most important, which I have to learn again and again, is that the first loss is the best loss. Take the first loss, however steep it may seem at the time. I wish I had some mechanism like an electric cattle prod, that gave me a 100 volt shock each time I am about to break this rule.
2. Beware keeping positions open over the weekend.
