I try copy-paste in my journal but it won't post - I get "This site can't be reached. The connection was reset." I am able to type things out in other threads and they post, but copy-paste-ing a longer post won't work.

Thanks!

below is content from someone else (not my words)

I don't want to harsh in someone else's thread, so I'll post on my own thread instead.

I've been reading a lot of posts about psychology.

Now, I'm having my own fight with psychology and trading, but I think a lot of people are missing the point.

The single most important thing you need to develop before you work on anything else is:

Do you have a working edge?

If you don't have a working edge, you are probably chasing price around with a 20-30% hit rate. No amount of risk management or psychological control will make a 20-30% hit rate profitable with the tools and capital available to the small retail trader.

Without a working edge, it's useless to work on your psychology because you don't even know if the feelings you're working on are right or wrong because you can't even tell if the trade you made / didn't make was right or wrong.

If you can't tell if you have a valid trade (because you have no edge / system that defines a valid trade) there is no way you can even judge your psychological reaction. You're just chasing price around.

Starting with psychology is putting the cart in front of the horse. Then shooting the horse because it feels like you're doing something to control the random losing outcome of chasing price around.

I'm watching a friend blow up a small fortune trading LIVE. Pro-tip (and I'm not a pro): It's a lot less painful to lose a small fortune in SIM than LIVE.

"I knew I was right."
"I knew I should of done XYZ (instead of ABC)."
"Why am I always on the losing side?"
"The problem is my psychology."

No. The problem is that you don't have an edge or system. If you KNEW what to do then didn't do it, you could correct the problem. But you will never correct the problem because you don't have an edge or system to correct. You're just chasing price around and saying you "knew" what do but didn't do it when you lose. You are one serious trend reversal away from blowing up your account.

You have to find-develop-copy-get a working edge.

Applying psychology to a random guess at which way price is going to go next is not going to make chasing price around become profitable.

The market is an auction designed to find the highest buyer and lowest seller. If you cannot situate your trade logically and repeatedly in that auction you do not have an edge. You are just chasing price around.

Sorry to be so harsh, but I'm watching my friend blow out his children's' college fund, jumping from guru to guru looking for the magic indicator or call. Please trade SIM until you're proficient.

@Binkius

I took a look at the server log. I do see where you are getting an error. It seems to have to do with bbcode, markup such as [b]bold[/b].

But I tried your exact text that you emailed me, and it worked for me.

Please try this next:

Open notepad on Windows.

Paste the content into Notepad.

Then, select all and copy FROM notepad, and into FIO's editor window. Doing this will essentially force plain-text to be used and get rid of any special characters or problem characters in your copy/paste clipboard buffer.

If that works, let me know. If it doesn't, please try removing the bbcode mark-up in your post and try once more. Either way, you shouldn't get a server error so I do want to try to figure out why you are.

Mike

Hi Mike,

I tried removing every (,),[,] from the post and it's still getting rejected.

I'm copying from Notepad and pasting with Paste-As-Plain-Text.

I have no problems posting manually typed messages.

thanks,
-B.

There aren't any new server errors for the last 3 hours, making me think you are seeing a cached page or something somehow.

What browser are you using?

If you try replying to this thread with the same, does it still have the issue?

Mike,

I tried today and it works. Maybe power cycling my computer reset my cache or something.

Thanks!
