Why are you so sure you'll be able to complete the bonus trading volume requirement? You'll need to have millions of dollars worth trades to get it.

Exactly! 40% bonus on $1000 is$400. You'll need to have an 8 million bucks worth turnover to get it. Crazy!

This is not the problem. Well… in fact it is, bit this is the kind of a problem that you must be able to manage if you plan to remain a trader for a long while. The disappointment is huge. This is a lot of profit I have missed when made this exit at $200. However, if you take closer look at the chart, you will notice that$200 really turned out to be a good resistance and there was a bounce down at that point. If sellers were a bit stronger this is actually where the stock could have made a reversal or a deeper retracement. I’ve made a trading decision to exit. I even fixed this decision here at this forum and this actually helps a lot. I said I think it is a good trade anyway, even if the price goes further up. And I said that BEFORE stock gained more in value. This is what I have to keep in mind. The exit was done by take profit. This is a good result. This time trade was not as profitable as it could be, but I know that overall it pays to exit at strong support and resistance. This is the trading rule I have to stick to to be profitable not once or twice, but on a long run.

this is the kind of an approach that is worth respect indeed. Were there any special techniques you’ve used to develop this kind of a tranquility?

I don’t think this is a special approach or technique. Just pure reasoning and logic, and some statistics. That’s it. I don’t feel tranquille at all, but I still manage to keep trading reasonably. Sharing experience helps The problem is that most people can’t put their emotions aside and just keep doing what they;ve got to be doing. This is monkey behavior. I don’t want to behave like a monkey, I’m a human. And I also have to keep in mind that I day trade with AAFX as well. When you day trade it’s even more difficult to remain calm as you don’t have enough time to evaluate your emotional state. You just keep making decision after decision. And each decision matters. Plus all this pressure with bonus requirements. Jeez, I think it’s a good idea for everyone to keep some kind of a public trading journal. It really helps.
