[LIVE] Day Trading | How Traders Become Mentally Unstable to Trade…

The life of a day trader is one filled with mental battles and emotions. While I realize part of my slogan is “trade without emotion”, the fact of the matter is that there will always be emotions. Because of this, our key job as day traders and swing traders is to be able to identify the emotions and understand how to battle them. Unfortunately, not all trade plans work out well. Unfortunately, at times, you’re going to be looking at some very frustrating situations. This does not make you a bad trader, but it does put you in some very dangerous situations that need to be understood! All these dynamics are hard to explain with words, so let me just show you some of my stock day trading results that show how I slowly became mentally unstable. So much so, that I was no longer qualified to be able to keep trading. For you longer time viewers, you’ve seen me post plenty of videos where everything goes in my favor and I walk away making great money. As a spoiler alert, that will not be the case in this video lol… get ready!

    I am really good at chasing. I am getting better at not just jumping in because it is running. I have to fight myself though. Happy Trading All

    Nice video. But you see in trading cryptocurrency, one requires more than just a primary knowledge of crypto. It is best to trade with an expert to avoid unnecessary losses.

    It’s advisable to have a professional trader/broker who is an expert in the field to help you manage your account.

  3. Jim Nelligan

    Trading for a fact is not gambling. You need to learn how to read price action and purchase stock whenever there's a lower risk and high profitability in play. For people that know trading understand, for the ones that don't, there's a thing called Expert Guidance. Consult an expert to guide you whilst you remain in total control of your accounts. The aim is to really educated people starting out that anything is possible. You will need to take major risk and invest time into whatever you want to do. People have this mindset that every successful person is a scam or from a rich family and that mindset is laughable. Good luck to anyone trying to get ahead in life, I wish you nothing but the best.

    So choppy that day …

  9. JourneyofBear

    These live trading videos with you talking out the trade are great! Hearing you acknowledge not to chase the stock just let it go was gold.

  10. Mustapha Elnahass

    Hats off for your transparency and courage, Clay! Keep up the good work!

  11. Very much appreciate the transparency.

  12. Typical noob trader destined to go broke by trading shitty fad stocks with no earning or value. This is why the inevitable bagholders go broke.

  13. Emanuel Nizamov

    Oh man that was painful….. But all good! Another day another play

  14. STOP LOSS. Otherwise, sooner or later will come mother of all the loses. 😀

  15. Simon Rushby

    Hey Clay, this video is not embarrassing at all. It’s a great example of risk management and an insight in to how the markets behave. I love these videos and your presentation. Keep them coming pal. 👍👍👍👍

  16. It's so bad when you miss, yet it's twice the good feelings when it works keep going champ!

  17. Amy Oganesian


  18. Hi Clay, thank you so much for being real. I made the mistake of continuing to trade though I was both frustrated and disappointed. That led to more losses. Haaha

  19. Franklin Guanipa

    Real life trades , this is why you are the best trader I follow.

  20. Even the best trader in history had red days, so it´s just the part of our work…

  21. Gunjan Patel

    Wow! I wish to have this mental strength/emotional control one day.

  22. Michael Mansour

    Thanks for posting this. I've missed good trades within seconds of it's taking off; just like this. I also seem to sell, then the price goes up (going long) and buy, then the price drops more. Shit happen sometimes. At least I was up decent on SPY calls today. But again, sold them way too soon and left a TON of cash on the table. Just didn't have the confidence in this market to let it roll.

  23. Hero’s Of Robloxia

    Ah..one of those days…it's normal

  24. Clay I notice you don't have a stop loss set when you take your position , can you go more in depth on your technique

  25. Charles Trussell

  37. Todor Todorov

    Thanks for sharing every battle! Very informative and useful videos. Much appreciated!

  38. Clay, still a cool video. You always keep it real. It is worth your time to make them because so many people get valuable info and feedback. It's so hard not to get caught up in emotions, but as you teach, it is important to realize. Thanks for sharing…
