Good ol’ Tesla (ticker symbol: $TSLA)… sometimes it rewards those who trade it with great profits, other days, it creates not so good of situations. On this day, it created what I’ll call… not a good start! Here’s the important learning lesson though, just because you start off your day in not the most ideal manner does not mean you did anything wrong. Sometimes trade set-ups simply don’t behave the way you feel they are “most likely” to behave, and that’s okay. The important thing is you trust your day trading strategy and continue to follow it. Sure, you may not make back all of the lost money in the same day, but if you can position yourself to be well within striking distance to overcome the lost money, you’ll find lots of success overall as a day trader. Let me show you what I mean using some of my personal day trading stock results.
