2:10 PM (Central) Update - Got back to my desk around 1:30 PM and figured I would Sim it...this is soo much easier on Sim!
You rebounded your week and have started making profits live. The hardest part is over and it gets easier from here on out.ReplyDelete
Great job man. Hopefully it won't be too long before your back live again!
believe you are on your way there. You already realize that the nervous factor is not allowing you to trade freely.ReplyDelete
I am not an expert but I try to limit my trades at 1 or 2 a day. Go for 2 points a day , by doing so, I set my goals lower and build confidence, I also avoid to make my broker richer than he is :).
Have a great weekend and look forward for your next week adventures :)
One time I left an open position in my sim account for 2 months without knowing, came back and was up 5k.ReplyDelete
Why can't I do that kind of stuff with my real account? lol
btw, good job on the green. You have the know-how, now you just have to practice the mechanics. :D
Thx guys! I think I'm going to try to trade the PM sessions over my lunch break. Even if I don't make much money, at least it will keep my (trading) mind sharp and keep me in the game.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the new job and squeezing in trading when you can!ReplyDelete
I am no expert but my best trading days are the ones where I make no more than 3 to 4 trades, I think 24 is overtrading.
Tavi, agreed. 24 is def. over-trading but my goal was to get comfortable entering Live trades in real-time since I was hesitating too much earlier in the week. Putting on 24 trades certainly helped in that area..a positive P&L was bonus :)ReplyDelete
You realized that SIM is much easier than the real one. Some traders didn't.
