Great explanation on some of the options to take, when getting stuck in this pickle. Very well articulated and laid out for the student to understand and remember.

Personally, I buy up shares on sale, and wait for a reversal.

That’s why I plan for this gap down, or just a general move down, with back up money. And when I start going in, I don’t go all in.

I use to wait one sinus and if I see a weakness and lower high I sell as a hedge. Sooner is better. The hedge can be managed as a new trade with a tight SL. However there's that thing called SWAP – when I'm long on gold and the price is lower for weeks I pay a lot but being short when price is up pays me a some little swap money so it's less of a problem.

Don't trade with leverage. Or it won't be long before you are not trading.

Moral of the story; it's already awful. Don't make it more awful. Do something to make it less awful than it can be.
