Another Good Trading Day on the Demo

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Monday 14 January 2013 10:25 pm

Today was a very smooth trading day: I opened the trading platform and charts, realized the market is about to go up, and entered quickly on 2 contracts. The market went up immediately, a few minutes of hesitation on the first 2 pips and then the first take-profit point was caught after 3 pips.

A few minutes later the market was up again, and when it hesitated more I brought down the other take-profit and exited the position with $75 on 2 contracts.

Why is it so easy only when I am on the demo?

    Its probably because there are no emotions involved. That’s what makes the thing difficult, I guess.

    You are right. The emotions involved – fair and greediness – are what is making trading so difficult.
