@Stefan_G Thanks, I also wanted to use TD ameritrade but they don't accept international customers, as far I know.

Hey, Joosh how's your trading going? Seems since I've started trading with real money it' gone down hill. I have found out some missing links to o/n or wknd holds. I have 4 tonight I had to close one bc I was above my goal when I looked at it, (I was about to close my computer). CAPR I got in a/h 7.65 plan was 7.75 or higher. It had gone up to 7.80 so I put my sell in at 7.80 it went to 8.19. Only had 10 shares. Will have to see how the other three come out on Monday. Have a great weekend. Take care and be safe and healthy.

@Windwalzer hey, I try to fine tune my strategies. Had some losses and some winners this week. ended up breakeven. I started to hide my P/L window so I dont get influenced by it, maybe it helps you too. I only see the P/L when I upload my trades to profitly. I usually dont hold stocks over night or over the weekend but if it works for you, keep going. Im sure you will adapt soon to trade with real money/emotions

I am working on it. Everyone is very small position. Easier to see how they are working. I haven't been watching the P/L, if I do I'll remember to remove it. Thank you.

Nice, I like how to traded it multiple times. looks like you didnt take a single loss.

to be dead on and fail at the psychologie to make 1k instead of best case around 35k A setup i trade often and still not able to overcome the mental effect in that moment. have the will to take a bigger loss for a chance to bank a real big gain. sooner or later i will get it. bot into strong consolidation PSV 10k x 1.14 and sold 1.20. bot hod break WIMI 1k 8.50 and sold with loss, it was looking like a fail. then i rebot it and sold with tiny gain. in the moment of the pattern its so scary, cuz the plays are up sooo much. the red candles looking so big, nasty, cracky and at the end of the day the red candles are so small. lol. have to learn and stick to the risk, and be willing to cut and take bigger loss when the play dosnt work out with having in mind, when it works, the reward will make all the failings plays back. huge risk/reward play. noon hod break, b/o plays. open the pics in a separate window to see the details.

Thanks for sharing your executions! I'm still tracking this setup but I look forward to also trade these kind of setups in the near future, I'm sure you will do great on the next setup!

Hi Joosh, how is it going? I have two trade for over the weekend. I'm so nervous. Do you IB? Do they work for longs and shorts? Have a good weekend.

@Windwalzer great thanks! Im still working on sizing up and finding more trading opportunities with good R/R. what about you? What do you mean with "Do you IB?" (yes, I use Interactive Brokers). Since I only have a cash-account I can only go long. But I heard they are really good for shorting too. Thanks, its always nice talking to you. Keep it up. Enjoy your weekend!

Sorry, yes I was asking if you use IB do you have to have a minimum for a cash/long account? How are their fees? Do they have a good platform? Thank you, have a good rest of the weekend. Good trading.

@Windwalzer sorry for the late reply. Im not sure about a minimum amout of cash required to open a account (I think it also depends if your an american or a international customer, im international and put $5k in it) the fees are ok. I love the platform, its all-in-one (great screeoner + great looking charts + overall a nice platforme). the default level 2 doesnt look good at all (black and white) but you can customis it in the settings.
