Paano Ba Mag-Move On: Bouncing Back From Trading Losses

“If a man didn’t make mistakes he’d own the world in a month. But if he didn’t profit by his mistakes he wouldn’t own a blessed thing.” ~ Edwin Lefèvre

Paano ba mag move-on?

Hindi. Hindi ito love life.

Isa ito sa mga most memorable trades mo bilang trader kung saan you have lost so much money. Halos lahat naman yata tayo, pinagdaanan na ito. Mapa newbie man sa larangan ng stock trading, neutral, high risk or an expert trader, we’ve all been through this kind of unfortunate moments.

Yung trade na sa tuwing naalala mo, napapailing ka na lang sa laki ng panghihinayang at minsan pa nga, ayaw mo nang ma-encounter uli kasi ‘nadala’ ka na at hindi na kayang tabunan yung sakit na naramdaman mo ng kahit anong punch line. Tindi no? Pero minsan, totoo.

Oo, nagkamali ka, cutloss dito, cutloss don.

Boom, sunog ang portfolio.

Balik sa umpisa.

Mayroon pa nga sa atin na sinasarili na lang ang problema. In a world where success and perfection are always considered as the ‘right thing’, it pains us to experience that we are on the other part of that world where terrible losses and disappointments existed.

Marami rin na sobrang nasaktan at hindi pa rin maka-move on kahit bagong taon na dahil pinaghirapan din naman natin yung pera na yon, sana nga pinangbili na lang ng isang bagay na at least, ikinatuwa mo naman, hindi yung parang naglaho na lang bigla sa mata mo nang hindi inaasahan.

It’s a struggle, a fractured fallacy, and missed opportunities all rolled into one.

“San ba ko nagkulang?” Yan ang madalas na tanong.

I am writing this with one sole purpose: to tell you that it is okay to move on.

Pili uli ng stocks, hanap uli ng tamang sistema, at syempre, kasama na din ang dasal na sana this time, makabawi na.

Oo, hindi madali, but if you still have it in you – the passion and the desire to do it again, then it’s not yet over.

But before you try to do it one more time, let me tell you that as you have experienced the worst time of your life as a trader, you should know that this isn’t the time to laid back again, watch tv or even settle down in an easier routine.

Because this is the time to triple your focus on your 7pm to 2am or 5am to 9am hustle.

Learn new things in trading, find your own ‘holy grail’ and never, ever lose that momentum.

It’s when things go wrong that you musn’t quit.

Kung may mga panahon na nag-aalinlangan kang subukang muli, pero you still have the drive, the motivation and the desire, okay lang yan. Just remember to use these traders’ DNA in you as hard as you can.

Stop making excuses and start putting in the work today.

Bilog ang mundo and we’re going around circles. Let the last mistake be the last one and let this be a lesson learned for you to be a better trader.

Hindi man tayo sigurado sa kinabukasan, mayroon naman tayong dahilan para mag-umpisa.

Put that hard work in now so you won’t regret it later.

Got it? Good. Now go apply that new skills you have learned in trading and be awesome. You owe it to yourself and more importantly, you deserve it.
