Despite the wider spreads, I like my new nano account. Being able to incrementally add (average in or down) or subtract does wonders for the bottom line. I still do not like my trading (sloppy and a bit too risky still), but at least I'm in the green (this doesn't inclue three or four trades that I had open when my daily readout was sent; however, they are also closed--scratched or positive--for an overall account gain of +100.07 cents):
Also, I opened a poker account two days ago after successfully playing some online play money poker. I didn't think I would do well with real money; you know, things are different when real money is involved. But, even though that may be true, I'm still up nearly $15 (minus 6 cents or so) from a beginning balance of $25. My poker returns are beating my forex returns.
