I've been doing swing trading for the last 6 months, basically breaking even for my efforts. (Maybe I'm just not patient enough to let profits accumulate.) So, I figure, what the heck, I'm at home for the next few days, I'll try this "daytrading biz." And.... I managed to scalp SPY profitably, 6 of 7 times. Six little profits, one moderate loss. Netted about $250 overall. So, what was that one unprofitable trade? It was one that I ig.. ig... ign... (C'mon! Say it!) Ignored my stop! :eek: Oh well, lesson learned.
