Our account did not grow in May, but we were able to set up other very promising trades without any losses. Basically, it is a good result when you consider that we fell significantly on the markets in the second week of May.
May performance in real money account
We started May with an account balance of $225,456.13 and stood at $225,645.68 on May 31st, a percentage gain of 0.08%.
