On further analysis of the market action over the past month, I’ve realized another error that I’ve made is that I’m not very comfortable holding losing leveraged positions. One of the reasons for this is because my position sizes have become too large relative to my portfolio. Secondly, it’s because my boss at my day job is a panicy person which doesn’t allow for this. As a result, this has affected my thinking. If I had held my short positions, while I probably would still be losing, I wouldn’t be losing as much.
