Easy on Demo, Difficult on Live

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Friday 15 July 2011 10:09 am






After over a week in which I didn’t want to touch trading (and also not having time for it), I finally went back to the simulator today. I again entered a position quite impulsively, not waiting enough. But after adding 2 more contracts to the mix, I was able to exit with a profit of $150 over 4 contracts.

Why is it so easy to trade on the demo, while trading on real life is so difficult?

    Demo trading takes the real life aspect out of it.
