Worst Stock loss ever




Today I was a dumbass and took a gamble on AAPL. I had no set stop and ended up with about a $9,800 loss by buying the top and selling the bottom on AAPL. Perhaps I should stick to trading futures instead, because I always seem to rack up huge losses on my stock trades. I'm now negative for the month by over 2k, so now my goal is to get to positive for the month. The index futures are down in the After Hours because of INTC earnings reports. It looks like its time for Jim Cramer to start screaming "WE HAVE ARMEGEDDON!"

I hope the Dow Jones Index tanks 5,000 points tomorrow so I can feel like less of a loser.

Trading Blow UP label added,,,CHECK!

P.s do you pay monthly for QTracker or do u also have an ameritrade account? if so how did u get futures data from IB in? thanks

QT is free with a 3 day backfill for anyone. I don't use ameritrade as my backfill.
