... not everyone is cut out to be a trader....

In this country you can't get a drivers license without proving you have some degree of rudimentary knowledge of traffic rules and driving skills. Yet you can get married or open a futures/forex trading account , two activities that have broken more men than a stay in Guantanamo, with few requirements other than fill out the forms and pay the minimum requirements.

I apologize in advance to everyone who's head is going to explode and call me a Commie/Socialist/LeftWingFanatical/Democrat rat bastard... for what I am about to write .... (Actually... I have been called worse... and sadly, in most cases it was justified)

1. Getting to trade live should be like getting a drivers license ... you have to pass a written test on fundamental trading knowledge and pass a SIM trading test.

2. You can not trade in a retirement account until you have shown consistent profits trading a non-retirement account.

3. You have to track your trading progress in a trading journal on futures.io (formerly BMT) and respond to all the "helpful" comments posted by experienced traders.

Don't ya'll all feel better now... things could be worse ... I could be in charge...

I am not a programmer, coach, trainer or self appointed guru and do NOT hold myself up to be a good example for anything. I do not have a book, trading room or seminar. Even though I have an opinion on every subject under the sun, I do not give financial advice. Nor should I be held responsible for feeble attempts at humor at your expense.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.
