Another Ordinary Day

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Thursday 24 June 2010 10:57 pm

Trading went well today.  I got $187.5 on 4 contracts, finishing it all in under 30 minutes.

I again had today a question of when I should be trading.  As school year is ending next week, everybody has end-of-year parties.  Today was my son’s turn:  A party at 17:00.  I came home from work at 15:30, picking up 2 kids on the way + one guest (friend of my daughter).  Then I had to go out immediately to get back the third kid, and got back at 16:00.  I had decided already I won’t try to trade in the short time I have till going out again to the party, but as always could not resist my urge to get over with this quickly.

I opened the platfom at 16:20 “just to take a look”.  Then after the market opened at 16:30 I saw I can’t just look, I had to be in.  I waited a few minutes to get the opening waves relax, then entered with one very cautious position, then a second one, and then the third.  I was very careful not to get ino long positions, so that I was able to finish everything on time.  Oh Well!  It seems I am not a very rule-obeying person.
