I made $633.00 my 1st day. A decent start so far for my trading career. I didn't reach my daily goal of $1,500 but maybe I'll make up for it another day this month.
I went into today being very cautious and aware of how much money I was risking in each trade. This is a mindset I need to keep if I want to be continuously successful at day trading.
However, I was a little TOO cautious today. I took profits on a trade with SCOR about .70 cents above where I should have exited (missed an additional $700 of profit).
I missed another trade completely by typing in my order and sitting with my finger on the trigger too long, Whiffing on another +$800 trade (LGIH)
The reason for my over-cautiousness was mostly due to the fact that I'm using a trading interface that I'm not used to yet.
I used to use USAA (which is complete garbage if you're a day trader) and now I'm using IB. Ill get used to IB interface pretty fast though I think. IB is FAR better than USAA.
