Sooner or later, every trader has this experience.

You’re scoring one winning trade after another. Your account is quickly starting to swell, and you’re thinking to yourself, “Damn. Life is good!

Yes, you’re on a roll. And it feels good! Then, all of a sudden, you make a losing trade. Then another. And another. Before you know it, you’re caught in a losing streak that ends up giving back all the money you made. And then some (:

Of course, you try to remain calm enough to make back the money you just lost, but for some reason, you can’t get back in the zone. Before you know it, fear starts to creep in, and soon you realize that you’ve lost the confidence required to weather the ups and downs of the market, while consistently making profitable trades.

So what are you supposed to do? Well, there are many ways to rebuild your trading confidence. A common-sense approach is to take a step back, and trade in a demo account until you feel more confident.

Different people handle it in different ways. Some eventually get back their trading “mojo," while others never recover.

Regaining the Courage to Trade After a Losing Streak

Jeff Gehr is a good example of a trader who lost money in the market. After licking his wounds a while, he was able to “get back on the horse” and start trading again.

In his own words, Jeff tells us how he did it:

“I’ve been "attempting" to trade for the last 8 years. First stocks, then Forex, which was not a good experience, then I backed off after losing a substantial amount of money.”

Fortunately, my interest in trading stocks and options was recently revived by the team at RagingBull."

Building Confidence Trade by Trade

"My first goal is to make a number of positive trades, consistently. I’ve already had a few wins by mirroring Jeff and Jason’s trades. I’m trying to make sure I have some initial successes.

With several wins under my belt, I’m rebuilding the money I lost before. When the time is right, I’m planning to take a leap of faith and start trading stocks full-time. This way, I can spend true focused time in the RagingBull chat rooms that are working best for me.”

The Unexpected Win That Smashed His Limiting Beliefs

"Everyday I’m watching closely to the repetition of the setups and how to set up charts. Although I don’t have it down yet, I’m confident that I’m finally heading towards my goal of being able to trade on a daily basis.

For example, yesterday I was overwhelmed by an options trade I took after Jeff Bishop had taken it on (TSLA). I "saw" the probable direction of the trade and to my amazement, without expecting it, I suddenly had PROFITS of $3,200 (a 184% gain)!"

"Honestly, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and have to admit that I panicked and sold my position after reviewing the chart as quickly as possible.

I know I could have taken only part of my position off the table, as Jeff and Jason teach, but I chose to sell my whole position. All I can say is, just the feeling of knowing that I too can make this kind of money was incredible!

Now I know I'm in the right place to continue reviving my desire to trade successfully by following the RagingBull team."

Getting a Glimpse of What's Possible

In closing, Jeff told us, "I’m finally learning to see through the right colored glasses so I can see the best setups.

I like the team efforts shared through the RagingBull membership, although the speed at which many trades are made is hard for me to follow because of my day job. Nevertheless, the trades with a longer time horizon have been helpful in overcoming my daily work-life hurdles."

So far I’ve only been given a glimpse into my own potential for success, but seeing what’s possible is priceless!"

"Being able to trade for a living has been my goal for years, because I know it offers me a certain lifestyle, and to the freedom to work from home or anywhere I can get internet. Having this kind of freedom would be wonderful for me and my family!"

"Thanks to all of you for helping me “get back on the horse" at a time when financially it means everything to me moving forward.”
