A Good Day

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Monday 17 May 2010 5:47 pm

Today was a good day.  Not a breakthrough, but just good.  I took a look at the market in the morning and saw things were going very slow.  I live in Israel, so the actual “big” trading is done between 16:30-23:00 our time (That’s 4:30 PM to 11:00 PM for you Americans).  I decided to wait, although in the afternoon I have more distractions, as my kids are home.

I opened the trading platform again at 16:45, and things were much better.  The market was moving.  I had just missed a big diving of the market, but waiting not very long I entered with 2 contracts and got $87.5.  I decided to try again, as everything was so smooth, and 10 minutes later I entered with 2 more contracts, scaling up to $150.  I could have actually done better, but I was getting tired and did not want to spoil my day with stressful positions.  Probably a dumb move, as staying in that position a few more minutes would have gotten me up to $200, but what the heck.  It’s been a long time since I had a $150 profit, and today everything went smooth with not much stress, the market didn’t go against me and there were no kids knocking on my door when I am in the middle, so I am happy enough. 

Still a long way till I get back to my original account of $5000.  Only after I get back to that will I declare profits as true profits, but if things will continue this way I only have 3 more weeks to go.
