Welcome to the "Investment School of Hard Knocks"
As I see it, you now have two options:
1) Give up!
2) Treat your losses -- I've seen worse, and experienced worse -- as the cost of your tuition at the aforementioned "school". Learn from your mistakes, if you can figure out what they were.Too greedy placing big bets while it was going well? Too concentrated in one sector?
We all go through good and bad patches, and I manage this by trying to make sure that I lose less during a bad patch (the past year
) than I make during a good patch (the year before
). And by not being too reliant on a successful outcome.
Best of luck,Tony, the Position Trader
