Greetings all, I could use some help with my mental problem. I find it difficult to participate in one-sided markets.

I've had this problem for years and my record shows that during these periods, my trade count is lower and my scratch count is higher.

Hate to be blunt. Do you have a fear of the bigger stops? The big boys don't let you ride those trends without some effort. I always tell myself "If you won't to ride the trend to the top, get a bigger stop". They will tell you when their done, so don't take yourself out by having unreal stops.
