current account size € 415

folks, i had to add some money (€ 276) again after i've got about 50 margin calls a week ago (i.e. 1 per hour :). as i didn't respond and didn't throw additional money into the 'fire', my broker liquidated my positions after the minimum margin level was broken down (THAT'S CORRECT :-). what does it mean? well, my overall 'investment' into this trading adventure (or my personal market study + the study of my soul?) since the beginning in march 2007 reached € 3,003. what a nice number, isn't it?

current positions:

item--------------: natural gas
units--------------: 1
order type--------: market (buy)
trade type--------: long
entry date--------: 11/25/2008, 12:33
entry price-------: 6.73
initial stop loss--: NONE, gas is soooo cheap already, i don't believe it can fall much bellow $6, so let's try my luck without stop limit this time. btw, this position is small enough, it shouldn't hurt my portfolio too much if i'm wrong :o). initial stop loss should always be filled, but let's tell that the (larry williams') 60-tonnes-lorry-event today :-)

reason why + strategy: in my opinion is natural gas so unbelievable cheap that i will enter this position immediately, even if oil is still damned cheap and €uro still weak compared to usd
