Last night I experienced some frustration getting started on TradeStation. I have become accustomed to entering all my orders in the evening for any trades I frame for the next day. Unless there is some box for me to check or uncheck somewhere within the TradeStation platform, that does not seem to be an option. I was able to enter the orders this morning before the market opened, but the frustration definitely moved me out of the zero-state last night. There are some other order entry options available that will expedite placing orders and some of the day-trading systems, so I’m not giving up on TradeStation yet. IB had a learning curve until I became familiar with the platform. I should be prepared for the same set of obstacles with TradeStation. The journey is not about the speed of implementation. It’s about the process and continuing to move forward.
Two new positions were added today (on both platforms). Currently holding 8 positions showing a total of +.7R
Long: AEM, CVX, INTC(2), OKTA, TLT, WYNN.
