Report of the Last 3 Days

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Wednesday 1 June 2011 5:29 pm

I didn’t have a chance to write here this past week, so here is a summary of the last 3 days:

Monday was memorial day, and the official stock exchange was closed. I didn’t remember that in the morning, so I did open the platform. There was some slow movement, so I decided to try my luck. That was a bad decision, as the market wasn’t really moving. I entered with one contract, as there seemed to be some movement, and indeed the market did move – two pips in the opposite direction. I waited for the market to correct itself, but it didn’t move. I added one more contract hoping this will help to hasten a possible profit, but the market was stuck. I had to go out with my son, so I left the platform open, but when I came back the market was still not moving. Finally I quit with a loss of $25 over the 2 contracts.

Yesterday and today were also not very lucky: I did make a profit, alas smaller than my expectations. Yesterday I made $62.5 over 2 contracts, and today – $75 over 3 contracts. Today I also experienced again some problem with the internet connection – something that did not happen to me recently. I hope this is not a sign for future trouble.
