Day 1: Plus 4.55 percent

So, this was my first day of trading in my Paper Account. It is a bad idea to blow up your real Trading Account, because then you can not trade anymore. It’s like burning down your Office or Restaurant. Damn SVXY !!! One bad decision at the wrong time and boom. Anyway, instead of doing nothing and saving up money, I will Paper Trade for a while and write a Journal about it. So this is day one. I have started with 2165 Euro in my Paper Trading Account. I’ve made 98.60 Euros today which is 4.55%. I had some[…]

I blew up my Trading Account

This is what happened. On Feb.02. I bought a few Shares of SVXY. I was down a bit when the Market closed, but didn’t worry at all. Next Monday the 5th. SVXY went further down, so I averaged down on Margin. It went further down and closed at around $70. We all know what happened then. This piece of junk dropped to $10 in after hours trading. The big Problem for me was, that I didn’t buy Stocks, but CFDs. I can not buy or sell CFDs in premarket or after hours with my Broker. So the first Margin warning[…]
