As Tim says, don't judge a trade by the outcome, judge it on what you learned. Yes count it as a win, because you learned to trade profitably.

Thanks gents and i got in at 3.49 out at 3.64 (literally the top). I agree if i bought 150 shares instead of 100 I wouldn't have lost all my profits to commission....Lessson learned stuck to my plan and got out immediately.

you should post your trades, but I started real small like that at first to get my feet wet, but now I usually trade 500 share positions because it's so hard to get past the commission threshold. I view my trades as a win if I can make any type of a profit after commissions but you gotta start somewhere. goodluck man.
