Hello Folks, I did research on Prop Firms on Elite Trader and joined one in the Boston area three weeks ago. I traded live (not simulation) for the first time on Friday 2/1 and lost $88.00 + $15 commissions = $103.00. I made a total of 10 trades with 100 shares each. My first three trades were positive, but lost it all and more to the lack commitment on my part, I did not commit to my stop/loss plan. I am now redefining my definition of risk management. I am currently gravitating to NYSE stocks over NASDAQ. In addition to using Level 2, Prints, and the Limit Book, I am using technical analysis. I find myself relying more on charts than anything else. Like majority of Prop Firms I can not carry any positions over night, so I would say that the trading style of my firm is scalping/momentum. Therefore, I want to improve my knowledge, skills, and pattern recognition in Level 2. Does anyone have any advice, theoretical or practical, beside me just staring at the computer screen? I know a lot will come with practice and time, but I want to help myself as much as possible. Thanks!
