Hi folks! Been trading IQ options demo account for about a month, and have had no problem getting a 60 - 67% ITM daily, with 5%-of-capital trades. So I figured I would do ok.
So, deposit a little, and hey presto -I can hardly get 50% ITM.
Switch to demo account, and again - 60+% ITM trades!
Back to real money account - wipeout.
Very often, trends change direction the second I place my trade.
I know more discipline is needed to stick to a strategy, but not being that disciplined worked really well with the demo account basically all the time, one starts to wonder.
So, wiped out twice now on real money, while my demo account has prospered!
Did a small deposit again, and making $1 trades, and get now maybe 30% ITM trades. It seems like the more I try, the worse it gets. Okay, at this moment I am frustrated and should stay away from it.
I'm quite surprised, though. Why would my results shift so drastically, just from switching the account up in the right corner? Demo = do good, Real = disaster.
