Am I ready for the real thing?
Two possible cases here.
1. You're the next coming of christ gifted with flawless intuition and you can do no wrong no matter what
2. You took high risk positions and through some combination of skill and a lot of luck came out on top.
My money's on #2 and my advice to you is not to get overconfident. When I first started investing I did very well and I started thinking "this shit is easy I'm the next warren buffet" and I took too much risk and it all collapsed and I lost 90k in 2 days, leaving me with half of what I started with. overconfidence is the worst possible thing you can have for investing. It may be cliche, but slow and steady wins the race.
Yea but the bigger problem is bankrolling
What did you start from?
Actually when I started coming to /biz/ 3 months ago I never saved money before and just blew my whole check on random shit and hookers.
Now I saved about 2 thousand and I lost weight not stuffing my face and gained knowledge, but I also go to other forums thanks to /biz/.
looks like you went high risk and got a huge reward in return. do what you did in the demo account for real, but scale it down to levels you can afford and that won't cost you a big chunk of your account for one false move, and you should do pretty well.
remember: pigs get slaughtered. just because you can go ham on a demo account doesn't mean you should for real. just scale down to safer levels, aim for what you need and then take additional risk WHEN YOU CAN AFFORD TO and you'll be money.
