Just signed up and look forward to being part of the community. A brief background...work in life sciences but secretly spending more time day trading while we are working from home. Very undisciplined, can start with a good green day but have a propensity to give it back and go red. Have difficult time accepting losses and that I am on the wrong side of a trade...guess having been a management consultant and always having to provide solutions and sound right in answering client questions...doesn't help in admitting being wrong. Get too greedy and not good at risk management and cutting losses quickly. Looking to improve my discipline and have a more thoughtful process planning trades. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Cheers...David

Thanks for the intro David, and welcome to the community! I think we all have a hard time accepting losses, hope is an eternal well. 'Keep your positions small' is the best advice I can can give you there, a lot easier to stomach the losses that way...
