      I’ve been day trading the Nasdaq-100 for a while but recently started making short-term swings for larger pips.

      After considering swaps, I’ve been testing my strategy on a small account (£250 balance, 1:200 leverage, 0.01 lot size) to determine profitability.

      My broker doesn’t charge a commission on indices, which is fantastic. Swap charges are considerably less for short positions than for long ones, so I want to maximise profits in this area, too.

      Here’s a recent trade that secured 392 pips in 7 days. I’m particularly pleased that I managed to sell almost at the top of this pullback.

      I’ll be keeping you in the loop as my strategy unfolds.

          Good to hear about your success with the Nasdaq. I’ve also been focusing on this index and experimenting with different setups. It’s impressive that you’ve managed such good results with a small account. Securing 392 pips in 7 days is no small feat, especially catching the pullback at the top.

              Thank you.

              I just love pullbacks. Shorting an index is always a risk, but even the Nasdaq-100 needs a breather.
