Getting Brave Again

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Thursday 28 July 2011 12:54 pm

After trading yesterday I set my platform back to simulator mode, so I will not trade live accidently. Today I opened the platform on the simulator, but then decided the situation was sure enough for a small live profit.

I switched to live, entered a short position with one contract, and waited. During my wait I left the laptop for a few minutes, and when I came back I found I was already out with a profit of $37.5. Had I sat down near the pc I probably would have pulled my take-profit point one point lower, but anyway this was good enough for today.

I’m taking now a short vacation for this weekend, so will be back to trade sometime next week.

    I am using the TransAct platform. You can start there with a demo, but after a short period they want you to put in money just to start your account. You can then go on playing with the demo, and of course withdraw your money if you decide this is not for you.
