Frustrating Internet Connection

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Thursday 17 February 2011 6:55 pm

I opened the Transact platform about an hour before the official oppening of trade. Things seemed to be going slow, and the market looked as if it is going to go down. I entered a short order, and when the market didn’t get high enough added a lower short order on one contract. This order caught quickly. Then the market jumped down, and I was very quickly out with a profit of $37.5.

I decided to try for another position, and added another order of 2 contracts. The market went up and down, and started being very alert with a big volume. Then my internet connection was lost. That was frustrating! When trading on the simulator, as I did, your positions are not kept when restarting the platform.

I decided to restart the Transact and add the orders again. Then the connection was lost again. Judging by the graphs, I would have probably made a nice (virtual) profit on these positions, but as the records were lost with the internet connection, I couldn’t actually see it.

I decided to give up with that. With an actual trade, I would have probably made a nice profit for today.
