I don't have exact statistics, but on my SIM trading I had approx 80% winners

On my live trading that I started just 2 weeks ago, I have approx 65% winners.

Hi safin,

How is your "mental game" going? Now that you are live cash? Your posts seem to have changed both in terms of detail and in terms of frequency after going cash. This seems like a bad sign... ? I hope that is not the case.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hi Mike
It's going well with live Cash so far. Frequency has decreased because of my busy life from past few days and also market seems to have changed it's momentum a bit. Too many indecisions. So I am not trading actively as before. I am also keeping my journal short to reduce time. But I am trading enough to keep my account going. I will be back to normal once I get enough time and market gives me more opportunities. Thanks for checking in.
