Another Lucky Day

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Friday 27 May 2011 12:28 pm

I got home today from my various Friday errands at 11:15. I knew it wasn’t a good time to start trading, as I had to leave at 11:45 to fetch my kids from school. I told myself: “I will just see how the market is”. I opened the platform, guessed the market will soon be going down – and somehow found my self in a short position. First with one contract, than another. The market was going up a bit, though I was still quite certain it will be going down soon. I added one more contract, and than had to go out.

I felt quite certain I will be out of the position with a profit in the next few minutes, but of course could not be sure. I felt stupid leaving everything like this, but had no other option. I fetched my son at one school, than my daughter at the second school, then back home. I was glad to see I didn’t get too nervous, and did not pass any anxiety to the children: my son was in a good mood, and we all joked.

On the way back home I got already nervous at the cars blocking my way. When we got home I rushed to my laptop, and was glad to see I was out of the position with a profit of $137.5. Thank God!

Had I been here, I possibly could have made my profit even bigger, as the market dived down even more. Never mind. I am happy with what I got. I will not try my luck any more today.
