I traded WAY too much in the 1st hour or two of the day.
I ended up with a net loss of over $3,000 on the day at one point.
I made a GREAT trade with ORBK that really helped even things out. (+$2,300)
I traded my way back to a profit of over $750 on the day
Lessons learned: Basically, this is something I have done countless times when I was paper trading. I would rack up thousands of dollars of losses in the 1st hour or two of the day and over the course of the rest of the day I would make it all back plus some. The lesson is obvious, I should not trade in the first hour or two of market open... maybe A+++ setups only?
Ill Stick to what works...trading stocks at market open does not always work for me.
