was paper trading for the whole of last month and for the first day of the last week - took a lot of time to get back into trading shape. finally began on tuesday with the start capital at the time being 32266/-

began real time trading on the 14th and logging the same. last day brokerage has been self calculated and is a rough estimate as the account balance is not updated on weekends by my broker.

last week was asf:
traded days - 4 days
win days - 4 / loss days - nil
avg win per day 3800 ie 12 % approx and overall for week is 15234 ie 47%

will update next weekend with the results accordingly
