An important point when tracking your investment is to use more than just the closing price of a given stock for the day. You should get accustomed to checking on the daily price fluctuation of the stock you are tracking. Chart services should allow you visualize the many different prices that your stock was trading at for the day. Did your stock reach your GTC price during the day? If so, consider it sold and update your practice trading form. What about your stop loss price? Use the same concept. Track your gains and losses and begin committing your cash only if you have had a minimum of at least 5 profitable trades in a row or are profitable 80% of the time on a minimum of ten practice trades.
Be Patient and make sure you have all the Basic Concepts fully understood. The hardest step to successfully trading in Channeling Stocks is patience. Your first instinct is to make money and make it now. Stick to the strategies given and don’t let greed get in the way. Be patient, take a little at a time, and in the long run you can be a much more successful investor.
