Making progress. Percentages can be misleading with such a small account, but it's better than losing money!
AND BOOM. Blown account. User deleted....
This is EXACTLY while I tell people that they need to be realistic in their goals.
automate where possible
reasonable stop loss
reasonable take profit
don't try to get rich quick, just consider it the same as get broke quick
only you don't get to spend the end result, because you spent the money on bad trades.
I could go on, but the point I am trying to make here is that to become successful as a trader, you have to truly understand the risks and accept the losses as they come along.
Smaller returns over the long term of your investing career is WAY BETTER than a blown account.
If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
