So someone asked me that question : I paper traded for like a year. I am definitely under PDT , I started with 1k, I made a video about it. I started w 1k, and made 21 trades within two months ish and am at $860 now. I had a few good trades. I cut trades quick. Executions and fills are good because my size is small and I use Etrade. Emotionally you feel like your hand is in a blender and you are waiting for someone to turn it on. As you get better emotionally you see when the person who presses

"loved this episode, however - you never really discussed how going from paper trading to real $$$ trading is different. Are you under PDT? Curious how much your starting account is? How about fills and executions? I am about to go from paper trading (10 mos) to real $$$... Really curious about the real life differences, and emotional differences..."

"As you get better emotionally you pull your hand out quicker when the person who turns the blender on comes back. You take scratches instead of losing a finger.

Hey, Just a pointer - cash accounts are not subject to the PDT although 3 day trade settlement applies. GL

kjc9trader Dec 28, 18 7:16 PM what would you recommend for an opening account of $5000, to best deal with PDT? I am about to go into real $$$ from a TOS paper trading account... Thanks!

This post inspires me, I've lost this past 6 months getting to know who I am as a trader. I'm relieved to know this journey has light at the end of the tunnel.
