Trades for 2-19-09

Today went better, I just wish I had stuck with my original stopgain in my 1st (real) trade. After entering the trade I should have had the mindset of waiting for something to prove me wrong instead of 2nd guessing it, and looking for more proof that I was correct in my entry.

Just in case you didn’t read my post yesterday, the “Gapers” are now trading the open of the index only (no stocks).

Sometime in the near future (maybe this weekend) I plan on doing videos of how I trade, and will post them in my daily post as they are completed.

The total figure for “Discretionary trading” does not include my paper-trades.

Click here for a video of today’s trades.
