How To Still Profit With Lag Time From Stock Trading Platforms

When you start trading more often you will notice that at times your stock trading platform takes a while to show your real time data. This can cost you thousands of dollars. When I first started I would rely on my trading platform to show me the percentage I was up or down to guide by trading decisions. I knew sometimes there would be lag time but when it cost me money I started looking for a solution to the problem.

The best way to overcome this is to already have your price entry and exits written down or memorized. When you already know the end before you begin puts ahead of most traders. Planning ahead in the market is one of the most important things you can do to increase your odds of having more winning trades. 

I recommend you start video recording your trades daily so you can see areas where you can improve. When I started recording my trades daily is when I was able to catch that some of my losing trades could've been winning trades. They became losing trades due my platforms lag time with showing me the data.

For every trade I do now I know where to take profit or cut my losses. Implement this everyday and watch your portfolio grow. Remember that planning ahead is vital to your stock trading succes.
