Made $3,400+ two weeks ago on $6,000 capital. Decided to bump things up to $8,000 last week…only to hit a slump and make much less per week. Really have to figure out what’s wrong. Maybe it’s just bad luck, or maybe it’s something else. Still, happy to have made some profit.
All of this week’s profit was made on DAX. Left several positions in drawdown last Friday night and they went against me the whole week, had a lot of difficulty making any money. Still stuck in an oversized position short in DAX now at -$2,000+. Hope it gaps down on Monday. Several times this week I thought equities would go down but stalled. Kept me from trading other opportunities. Fingers crossed next week.
Have a great weekend guys!
Edit: My mistake. Seems like I made a bit of money yesterday shorting Nasdaq, forgot about that. But that’s it only two “trades” this week. Feels like a waste, although I know I should be grateful for the gains nonetheless.
