Closed a bunch of trades today that I wasn’t entirely happy with. I am sure that I will now spend the day watching them go into zones where they would have made me profit
Week (taking into account above loss): £38.82
So while its too early for averages, I will process it anyway and round up:
Average week: £39
Average day: £10/day
Comparing that to demo, which was £30/day, its down, but still profit.
Tiny lots, but pressure difference from real to demo could already be having a phycological impact. In fact, I can say for a fact that it is. It just feels different. Trades now really matter. I think its not just not losing money, because my lots are small, I think its winning and losing. We are programmed to win, and losing hurts, but its clearly part of this game.
Cutting £20 odd pounds today felt painful. Could I do it if it was £200. I might have to at some point or blow it. I intend to progress in lots sizes, but not yet.
Still happy to finish the first week in profit. I have 1 x trade running which I will put up in separate post.
