So, that’s it. Yet another blow – two actually – to add to my trading journey. My broker informed me that they’re closing down.
Around the time I was slowly getting into stock trading a friend asked me why I don’t consider property development instead. She’s had some experience with it and found it rewarding.
But property is boring, working with builders is frustrating and dealing with tenants is tedious! Right?
“I could kick myself!”
I don’t know how often I have said this to myself in the last few months.
Lately I’ve been busy with other things. So, trading took a backseat. I have been trying to keep a hand in, though, and that might have been a mistake.
I first got interested in bitcoin in early 2016. Back then it was trading at $350 to $450 per bitcoin. This month it broke above $5500! I am in pain! – Why? Because I listened to the voice of caution and never got involved back then. I only acquired a minute fraction of a bitcoin this week.
Recently I noticed somebody ask on social media whether other traders felt guilty when they won money in a trade because it means that somebody else has lost money. My first thought was…
Are you serious?!
