I’ll be the first to admit, talking about losing trades and losing money while trading in the stock market is not fun. You know what though? It happens. Whether you are day trading or swing trading, there is no such thing as a perfect trader and you will be wrong from time to time. Given this fact, the sooner you realize to just “take the loss”, the sooner you’ll put yourself on the big picture pathway to overall trading success. I use some real life trading results to best illustrate how all of these dynamics work in the real world of stock market trading.
