I know it may be hard, but would you share your Lessons Learned on this trading day? Maybe via video?

Very good question! I’ve been processing the day, trying to understand where I went wrong. I think it was a combination of a few things. First, I held a position overnight and that put me down quite a bit at open. I shouldn’t have done that, it goes against my trading strategy. I showed a lack of discipline with that. Second, I was honestly thrown off a little by the option pricing for many of the stocks I normally trade because earnings are coming out next week for many big tech companies. I had been trading 4/17 expiration options until yesterday, but then I switched to 4/24 options because 4/17 were no longer available. As a result, the option prices were significantly higher. I do not have a lot of experience yet trading options during the week of earnings, it really makes everything volatile in the option market. So, I believe that had something to do with it as well. I didn’t feel comfortable or confident at all during the day. I will have to figure out how manage this going into next week. I feel a bit more prepared having experienced it yesterday, but I still may be a rocky week with volatility. Lastly, overall, my emotions got the best of me. I was too impatient, undisciplined, and I did not stay true to my trading technique, I’ll be taking a more conservative approach on Monday until I feel comfortable again with how the options play out during the week. Thanks for your comment!

WOW!! Thank You for the Transparency!! That is very beneficial for me! I definitely will keep those thoughts in mind! – “STICK TO THE PLAN, GABE!”
