Originally my stop in ALTR was about 1%, but I knew it was going to head down so I adjusted and wound up having to stomach a 2.07% drawdown before I finally took my profits. Other than that it was just a paper-trade in SDS, and some practicing in forex. It’s looking like I may need to change the way I do forex, because when I’m getting gains they are small. I may just try boosting the trade size and see how that goes.
The total figure for “Discretionary trading” does not include my paper-trades.
