I know this may sound familiar but it truly happened to me and I liked to get your feedback about it. I started trading one month ago just knowing some of the basics and not even familiar with all order types. I started with $3000 and in one month I gained $600, actually during this month in just one week I was up to $4000 then was pulled down to $2600 then made it back up to finally $3600. I never put stop loss orders either with the broker or even mentally. I usually pick low priced stocks that I feel can't go any lower although most of these stocks have a daily volume of not more than 100,000 shares like WEX. I will fund my account with another $6000 to maximize my gains. Although from what I read I know I should lose but I really find this very easy or may be I have a good sense in picking stocks ?!
