Lying in bed with a horrendous cough. And the market has just fallen ... off the table.
Looks like I made a serious mistake in buying the stocks the last two days. Should have acted prudently. But this cough has just screwed up my thinking. I didn't act on my stop losses and I behaved recklessly. It looks pretty bad now. Its now a general market rout.
If I exit from my positions now- I'll be facing a seriously major hit.
I have M over at my place at the moment, not an experienced trader at all, a real joke, and the person has just been saying hold on, hold on. (Which is not the best thing to do - I didn't have stop losses in place - and I'm just not in the right frame of mind to share trade.)
I'm not feeling well. This cough and fever is taking its toll on me- and at just the worse possible time. It think the cough medicine is also impairing my judgment. I'm really not thinking clearly at all.
And of course the market is just moving too quickly. This looks very bad.
