I had a losing day yesterday, but as a result of technology rather than signals. There was one trade, US Tech 100, where Adam sent a text to close at break even. At the time, I was in an underground car park in a shopping center and just couldn’t log on to IG Index. By the time I got outside, logged on and closed the trade, it was £52 in the red. Doh!

I ended up £16 down on the day instead of £35 up.

I suppose this is one of the drawbacks of day trading, you do need to be able to open and close trades in a timely manner so if you live in an area with poor connections, or know you will be travelling to places with poor connections, this may not work for you.

Here’s my trades:
