      Very good question! I’ve been processing the day, trying to understand where I went wrong. I think it was a combination of a few things. First, I held a position overnight and that put me down quite a bit at open. I shouldn’t have done that, it goes against my trading strategy. I showed a lack of discipline with that. Second, I was honestly thrown off a little by the option pricing for many of the stocks I normally trade because earnings are coming out next week for many big tech companies. I had been trading 4/17 expiration options until yesterday, but then I switched to 4/24 options because 4/17 were no longer available. As a result, the option prices were significantly higher. I do not have a lot of experience yet trading options during the week of earnings, it really makes everything volatile in the option market. So, I believe that had something to do with it as well. I didn’t feel comfortable or confident at all during the day. I will have to figure out how manage this going into next week. I feel a bit more prepared having experienced it yesterday, but I still may be a rocky week with volatility. Lastly, overall, my emotions got the best of me. I was too impatient, undisciplined, and I did not stay true to my trading technique, I’ll be taking a more conservative approach on Monday until I feel comfortable again with how the options play out during the week. Thanks for your comment!
