Today I took my biggest loss to date.
It was part bad pick, slash broker issues. As shown below, I tried to get a better average around 9:32am. Instead of showing FILLED. It showed SENDING. I just assumed the order didn’t go through.
When I sold at 9:42am, I noticed my P&L was still in the red. Thats when I realized that I was holding 400 shares instead 200. Not sure what happened there. I desperately need to get off of the web based trading system and switch back SureTrader’s platform.
I keep saying that I’m going to stop for a while to reevaluate my trading but it never happens. After last Friday and now today, I’m done!
I plan on contacting SureTrader later today and signing up for a demo account. I originally thought paper trading was dumb and that I wouldn’t get anything out of it. I’ve been spiraling out of control all of this month. Its time to stop the bleeding.
