Today I fucked up, big time. I have been trading currencies for around 3 months and was getting good results (maybe beginners luck who knows).
I decided to go the next step and borrowed $10,000 from the bank so I could put on bigger trades and hopefully get bigger profits.
After a week I made $4,000 in one day (in a few hours) in a great trade. After that I thought I was invincible and kept getting bolder and bolder with my trades.
Needless to say today I lost it all, including the $10,000 which I borrowed from the bank. In one day. Gone.
I'm 28, casually employed and have no real assets. I feel like my gut has been wrenched from inside out and I also had to break the news to my girlfriend whose birthday is just around the corner.
Pretty huge fuck up, one of the biggest in my entire life.
**Edit:** Surprised at all the feedback I've gotten in such a short amount of time. All the troll comments are making me laugh, at least that is something positive out of all of this.
Important thing is to remember no matter how smart or safe you think you are we are all humans and make mistakes or stuff doesn't go our way. It's the way you deal with it after that counts.
Cheers for all the comments.
