I do these posts mostly for me to track my trading journey*. Also english isn't my first language, so keep that in mind. As the commision fees with Questrade are $4.95 minimum or $9.95 maximum ($0.01/share) I realize in my paper trading account that the majority of my lost are due to commission fees because I trade very with a small dollar position. I will now on focus more on $1/share ish stock and stop to play with subpenny stock for a while because they cost me double the fees. Still going to use $450-$550 position in my paper account. When I'll be more comfortable with the data that I will have collect, I will eventually switch to my real account.
