Back to Trading!

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Tuesday 4 December 2012 2:20 pm

Those who are following this blog for a while know that I have been taking now a very long break from trading.

Finally, after a break of about 16 months, I feel I can go back to trading. I feel optimistic about it.

Make Real Money OnlineI have started again trading last week, currently only on the demo. Last week I traded just to get back the feeling, without really trying, and of course I lost.

Yesterday I begun trading more seriously. Yesterday I made $50 with 3 contracts, today I made $87.5 on 2 contracts. I hope I will continue this new progress!

Where you planning on joining the atomic craze, making friends with Ahmedanijad or just testing radioactivity? Amazon has a solution for you:

Uranium Ore from Amazon

If you are checking this page, don’t miss the customers reviews. Scroll down and read them. They are hilarious!

 

Maybe Amazon will become the new eBay, not only for their good prices but also with the products people come up with!

When Will I be Back to Trading?

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Friday 8 June 2012 2:52 pm

I got a few inquires from readers of this blog wanting to know if I am back to trading yet. Well, first, thanks for asking. And no, I am not yet back to futures trading. I do intend to get back to this, probably in a few months.

After I lost most of my capital, I decided to wait till I will feel less anxious about trading. Last time, I felt I was somehow causing this failing myself. I got to a stage where I had a wonderful month, making more and more profit, and then – boom! I failed and lost everything. I feel there was something psychological about it, not being ready for this.

I hope to be back to trading and blogging again about my trading experience in a few months. When I feel ready.

Meantime, I am trying some other “making money online” schemes. I will write about this soon.

Where am I Heading?

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey,Politics | Thursday 1 September 2011 8:43 pm

My regular readers have probably noticed I have been away from this blog for a while. I have not yet decided what to do next. I am sure I will get back to trading some time, but not yet. I have to somehow overcome my impulsivity. Maybe when my regular income will be higher I will be less desperate. Or maybe I just have to take some Ritalin (not only for trading – my ADD is getting more annoying).

Meantime I may go back to demo trading. Maybe I will find another platform for this, as the Transact will not allow me do that without investing at least another $500 in my account. Maybe I will take Forex trading for a while. After all, the principles are similar enough.

Anyway, meantime I wanted to share this site (not connected to futures trading): Watch Glenn Beck speaking about Israel and the Middel East.

The End?

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Wednesday 3 August 2011 5:17 pm

Well, it happened. I wiped out my account today.

I had a bad feeling when I begun, but I decided to trade anyway. I begun a short position, but the market went against me. Instead of thinking rationaly (or carefuly) and backing out as soon as I can, I let the loss go far too much, so that my account got under the $1000 I need to have there in order to continue trading.

Then I just made more and more stupid moves, and just got things worse, till I went over my $700 loss permitted per day. So I have now about $600 in my account, which means I will not be able to trade in the near future, until I add some more to it.

I am not sure what I should be doing now.

Back from Holiday

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Monday 1 August 2011 4:19 pm

I took a long weekend off, and I must tell you – that was so refreshing! I must do this more often.

My flight back was a night flight, so I spent this morning sleeping. When I finally decided to trade I didn’t have much time, so I decided to take the simulator.

The market looked as if it will go down, but then it went up again. Then it seemed it would soon get back down, so I entered one contract in a short position, and then another. Then it was time to get the kids.

I came back 20 minutes later to find myself out of both contracts with a profit of $75.
—————————————————————–

As always, my impulsivity won: I decided to try again on live trade, trying to catch the last ticks of the downward movement. I switched to live mode (Transact programmers: why does this have to include exiting the program, including the charts, and re-entering again? You should have designed some switch -which should include re-entering the password but not getting out of everything!), and tried again. As often happens to me, at this point the market went up again. I managed to quit with 0 profit, losing only the fee.

Then I tried again with a long position. This time went better: the market was going up. I quickly discovered that the brackets were not switched on, so I quickly quit with a profit of $50.
