It’s sort of like paper trading without the paper. Trade small and relatively infrequently and then slowly give yourself (or the computer) more rope as you determine real world performance.

I took four manual trades today and did pretty well. Here’s the best trade of the day in SKM and the worst trade of the day in WSM:
