Hello Andrew003, also relatively new in day trading and based in Cyprus. Happy to connect to support each other in the journey.
Hi Andrew, sorry for the late reply. I did not see the notification. I am new in the forum.
I am currently trying to switch from swing trading habits to day trading. I tried the live environment with not much success. My trades in SIM are normally green whereas the live trades are normally red.
I am looking at trades such as ABCD pattern, double bottom reversals, Mountain pass (there was a good one today with $BABA).
I am quite successful in finding the direction but sometimes I need to give room with my stop losses.
Next steps: More practice, journaling, identifying optimal stop losses and trade management (normally I exit too early).
I set target until Christmas to practice and by Christmas I will set rules and add discipline.
Let me have your thoughts and your approach in day trading.
