So i am demoing on a 5k account with FXDD. All i am doing is trying to identify trends and breakouts, however i miss most of them when i am sleeping. So i was bored and deviated from my stratagey and went long (1 lot) on USD/CAD just because in my mind it could not drop any lower. Of course it did. SO i bought another lot… because it just can’t get much lower! But it did. So leason learned on the fact that you can never predict the market as it is random and always follow your stratagey.
So both of my trades were down a fair bit, However when i came home from work i noticed they were both closed and i was left with a balance of just over $1900. So why were the trades closed? This really can’t be margined out if i still have this much money left in the account.
ps and yes i know buying two lots on a 5 k account with 100 to 1 leverage is excessive. In real life i would likely only have .5 of a lot open at one time at 100 to 1.
