I have been demoing for 2 months before. Been stock trader for 6 months.
Today, hot friday, was my first experience in forex live account.
My account is @ MBT. 5$/million traded. Deposit of 2000 USD.
Platforms: MT4, Quotetracker, Oanda. All of them have their own specific advantages.
This day has been really exciting.. lot of news, especially NFP.
EUR/USD made crazy things within the next 2 hours of the release.
Will post results of my first day tonight after close. I can already say I have been overtrading: 13 trades: P/L breakeven minus 23 USD of commissions. So I'm down 23 USD at the moment.
I used to be schizophrenic, but now we are sane.
