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.

@papajohn Glad I just found this post by chance! Roland's revelation about turning Grittani's shorts upside down is huge and so is your explanation of risk on LOD / spike pullback area. Thank you!

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

kjc9trader Dec 28, 18 6:16 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!

actualy, one of the most useful - helps me direct my focus - which was somewht absent.I've been in the challenge forabout six weeks, still struggling. I always seem to be late getting to theparty. Etrade is very cumbersometo trade with. I've ost money just trying to get abid in - much less get a fill at a good price. Oh well, I'll keep at it - it is startingto make sense - this videeo helps a lot.

Not exactly fully transparent. I plan to keep current now, but I have a bunch of stuff from the last six months - not exaxtly on cocktail napkins but woefully incomplete. Last 6 weeks or so I have good data and will load as time permits. Some embarassingly stupid trades in there. I keep trying to avoid them but my "stupid" rears up once in a while and does me in. Glad to hve arrived at a point where I think this is a worthwhile exercise.

This was like the best 5 minute video lesson overview I've seen.

Dom, your story is one that inspires me to my very core. I never thought I would ever be a successful trader, but I am now. It's all thanks to this amazing post that I refer back to everytime I personally struggle throughout my own journey. You are a serious inspiration to fellow traders. Thank you for everything
