Very Quick Trade

Posted by Deb | Day Trading Journey | Thursday 24 March 2011 5:43 pm

I was working out of home this morning, and when I came back at 3:15 PM I had a very short time till I had to go out again to fetch my boys from school. I decided to open the charts just to see how things are, and immediately saw there was an opportunity for a quick short position. I knew I didn’t have time, but then decided that just in case I will open the platform. The connection was not good, so I thought to trade later, but then could not resist the temptation.

Although the connection was not good, I entered a position that seemed very sure, on one contract. I went for a minute to the bathroom, and when I returned to my laptop the position was already out with a profit of $37.5. That was short!

I of course was tempted to try again, but as I already said here my main goal now should be to learn how to control myself, so I will not be gambling. A net profit of $30 is not much, but I should not be waiting for more till my account grows a bit, as for now I really cannot take any risks. So that’s it for today!
