Some Luck Today

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Wednesday 27 July 2011 6:10 pm

As you have probably realized, I have been taken some time off from trading. Today I had some free time on the afternoon, and decided to try.

I opened the platform on the simulator mode and realized the market was diving down. The charts were taking a long time to load so I decided to try a short position anyway. I tried, and it worked so I added one more contract, than another, and exited with a profit of $125 over 3 contracts.

At this point, as the market was still going down, I decided to move to live trade and try my luck again. I was lucky – I was able to make $50 with one contract.

At this point I realized how lucky I was: The market went down another point after I quit, and then went up. It went up till now 4 points (3 points over where I had left).
