Might be an excuse to confront the voice in my head that greets me when I open my eyes some mornings with "Today--no trading for you!"

I would like to join the event

Good morning Mike, please consider me for this contest. I've opened a journal in the "journal" section of (formerly BMT). My new thread is named Day Trading For Income.

I may miss a few days the 3rd week in March due to spring break with the kids.

I look forward to learn from everyone participating. Good luck to all!

So long as you are not in ANY WAY affiliated with the vendor, are not a vendor yourself, etc etc etc, then yes it is fine assuming the post does not read like an advertisement.


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.
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
