    Am I missing something? How did you profit off those trades?

    I'll have to recheck. But a few of those trades were closed at the same price I bought them at, which seemed strange.

    So how do you decide when to sell the positions that you have open?

    It's random, there isn't much of a process. I guess I could wait until my net pnl is positive before cashing out but a week of losses wouldn't offset one day of gains.

    I suppose I could have some sort of system where I buy a random basket of stocks based on a set of rules, like:

    * buying stocks in sectors that are up for day, year or whatever. For example, healthcare is the leading sector, up 5.6% YTD and 29.3% last year.

    * buying stocks when they break 52wk highs

    * buying stocks on good news/ earnings

    etc..

    And youre forgetting that trading real stocks with real money isn't free. add 7$ to buy and 7$ to sell for each position and then see how big your loss is. Also random walk is a bunch of sh!t
