Strange Trading

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Thursday 6 December 2012 5:56 pm

Today’s trading was strange, though I came out with a nice success: $162.75 over 4 contracts (still on the demo, unfortunately…)

I entered the the market with one contract over a long position, and then realized I have not yet clicked the automatic bracketing, so that no take-profit and stop-loss were generated. I quickly found a good point to take profit, but suddenly the market started moving too quickly for my modem, and I couldn’t see the orders I was putting. Till I realized what was happening I was in a short position with 4 contracts, and the market was going down! I quickly got out, eliminating the orders one by one, and got to the nice profit of $162.5. It was like trading on blind and winning.
