In the comments below, write about a trading or investing experience that did not go well. More importantly, explain what you learned from that experience and how it shaped you as an investor or trader today.

No trader or investor wins 100% of the time. We all have setbacks or at times make decisions that did not perfectly work out. Your experiences and insights will help other traders and investors learn. It's the best way to get better and grow - sharing, talking, and exchanging ideas with others.

We look forward to reading what everyone contributes in the comments below.

We will also give out some free gifts to the best responses!
