Over the past four weeks. I scalp SPY options. I played too big for my britches. I know what I did wrong I just lose my mind when Im convinced something is going to go a certain way. Now I'm paying more attention to having patience, getting in at the right time, following price action and market awareness. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Lesson learned, margin account.

When the "plague" hit, all of a sudden I was WAY "over extended". My {absurdly low} trade triggers had all hit and the prices were still dropping, fast. This time is better, won't loose unless I sell.
