It seemed hard to make headway in August, and I had many more losers than winners. In the end, I think a little over 3% down was a good outcome.

It is interesting to note that the loss was almost exactly equal to the brokerage charges. In other words, the trading was about all square, but brokerage charges led to a 3% loss. I’ve written before about the importance of controlling costs in day trading, and this is a good illustration of the point. The more often your strategy trades, the more aware of costs you must be!
