first day in forex – could have been much better

So…after countless procrastination, I finally deposited $200 to OANDA, and started my live forex trading journey. After half day, I’m up 2%. While I can’t complain since I’m after all in the black, I do regret some of the trailing stop setup. I’m using trailing stop because I don’t always sit in from of my laptop – meetings, discussions, etc., therefore I don’t want my account blow up when I come back from a chat. Meanwhile, hard stop at max loss(I’m using 2% of my NAV) is not flexible enough, and I don’t always remember to adjust it. Guess that’s the price I have to pay?
