Looking for futures investors for a Wall Street Journal Story

Hi there,

My name is Ira Iosebashvili and I'm a reporter with The Wall Street Journal. We're hoping to do a piece on retail investors who play commodities futures. If you'd like to share your war stories with us, we'd love to hear them. I'd be interested to hear when and why you started investing in commodities, how you have done and how the playing field has changed over the years. Please send me a line at ira.iosebashvili at wsj dot com and we can set up an interview.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Ira

No interest/no time to participate personally, but out of the thousands of others here perhaps someone would see the benefit.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I vote for @tigertrader to do it instead of me. Gary has much more breadth and color, and a much richer history. My story is more depressing, his is what everyone wants to hear.

Would love to hear from any of you, whether your story is uplifting, depressing, whatever. It's always challenging to get retal traders for a story like this and any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!
