Back to Day Trading

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Tuesday 5 July 2011 7:59 pm

July 4th is over, and I am back to trading, though I am back again on the simulator for a while.

I did some trading on Friday. I had first a nice position, made a (demo) profit of $137.5 over 4 contracts, but then got greedy and tried one more position. This position was disastrous, so I just quit it in the middle. That’s the advantage of the demo – you can close the platform and forget about your mistakes.

Today I had another position, this time over 5 contracts. I made $125 over 5 contracts. As is often the case, I had to quit the position early to go out with my son.

I think I will stick to the demo for a while now, I have no idea for how much time till I decide to go live again.

    I think it is a good decision so you can shape your trading sense again before go to the live trading.
