2009 Interactive Brokers Collegiate Trading Olympiad

Will closing my position violate my trading plan?

Carl, I am sure it would NOT violate your trading plan. When you trade you open and close positions, and that is how you make money. But if you would switch from options to, let’s say, futures that could be a problem, of course in case you have not indicated it in the trading plan.
 
OK Good. Thanks guys. That's what I hoped.

I closed my positions, and I am up a tiny amount.

Hopefully it's good for $1,000. Today is only the 2nd day I could liquidate at above $1mil, so I took it.

GREAT JOB.:dance::dance:
 
It is a tight race for positions 7+. I got lucky with the snapshot for closing positions last Friday. Let's hope for a good week 6 of the competition.
