I think a lot of traders are. Look at the chart below. If you were long before point C and you are disciplined, then you would have been stopped out of most of your positions. 70-80% of your portfolio follows the general market. That is why some people prefer trading E-Mini.
If you were ambitious, you perhaps flipped to the bear side. It did make sense to short the market at that point since C was a major support. Nevertheless, the end result is that you are slapped left and right. Those were textbook set-ups. But they did not work this time.

That is trading. You will have to have the stomach for this. Anyway, the market will probably remain weak for the summer.
