Good Trading

I haven’t written here on Thursday and Friday, so here is the summary:

Thursday went well.  A few minutes of stress, but the end was $287.5 on 3 contracts.

Friday was difficult.  When I opened my laptop, my trading platform (Transact) was stuck, with the price not moving.  I called the support, and was told they do not recommend trading on wireless, as these things sometimes happen.  I tried rebooting, moving to the other room, but nothing helped.

I tried to sit near the modem and using an internet cable, but somethow my laptop (a Toshiba) kept connecting through the wireless.  I have to try and check how to do this, but didn’t have the time for that yesterday, so decided to trade on my kids pc which uses an internet cable.  I have traded there once some time ago when my old laptop died.

For some reason, my trading tools program (Sierra charts) did not work there properly.  It kept showing only the last 15 minutes, with no history, so I could not see the actual graphs and tools.   Finally I put the laptop near the pc, opened the platform on the pc and the charts on the laptop.  This wasn’t ideal since the Sierra is connected to the trading platform, so that I had to re-open it every few minutes to get it updated.  I wasn’t sure if I should trade in such conditions, but didn’t want to miss a day of trading so decided to give it a try.  I entered a position with only one contract, as I was not sure if I should try at all, and a few minutes later added one more contract.  When the market first went against me I was a bit angry at myself for trying to trade in such conditions, but finally the market went up and I exited with $187.5 on 2 contracts.   Less than the previous days but quite good under these conditions.  I hope on Monday things will work again on my laptop, otherwise I will try to re-install the Sierra on my kids pc, or figure out how to connect without wireless on my laptop (and get a longer internet cable!).  Anyway I was proud of myself of making profit with all these mishaps.

And for our political corner of the day:  A nice satirical video about the whole flotilla business:
