Back to Trading next week.

I’ve been quite busy last week and did a bit testing. So I wasn’t trading very much. Tomorrow is the Birthday of my Wife, so I wont trade. But on Tuesday I will start to trade again….just Paper first. I guess I will start to trade real money again in 1-2 Months. I never ever want to blow up my Account again.

Perfect Weather in Frankfurt

Wow, it’s extremely cold in Frankfurt, but the Weather is just brilliant. So I grabbed my Bicycle and took a little Ride along the Main River. The Picture shows the Skyline of Frankfurt, the Main and the Restaurant Oosten. If you’ve never been to Frankfurt, I recommend you take a walk on the River from Holbeinsteg to Hafenpark. There are Bridges at Hafenpark and Oosten , so you can cross the River and walk back on the other side. I took the Picture from the Train bridge. What you can not see on this Picture is the ECB, which is[…]

Yours Australian Bar forever closed

Whenever I wanted to dine out and have a yummy Burger, tasty Fries and a Newcastle Brown Ale or Victoria Bitter in a cozy Atmosphere, I went to the Yours Australian Sports Bar in Rahmhofstr. 2-4, 60313 Frankfurt (Schillerpassage). I also loved the All You can Eat Breakfast Buffet. Unfortunately this placed closed yesterday (19.02.108). There is another Yours Australian Bar in Braubachstr. 1, Frankfurt and another Yours American Bar in Bergerstr., but this one was my favorite. So sad it’s gone.

Day 2.: Plus 9.9 percent

I’ve made 224.10 Euros today which is 9.9% of the Account. So my total Profit is 322.70 Euros which is 14.91% in 2 Trading Days. I only traded Oil (CL) today and I guess I will stick to that for a while. I hate working in the Afternoon or at night and since I live in Germany I have to trade from 3:30 PM till 10:00 PM to trade US Markets. German Markets are somewhat ridiculous and there isn’t much that can be daytraded because of the lack of liquidity. CL Futures can be traded 23 hours a day (from[…]

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[…]
