Hey you all,

What about starting a journal without the contest?

;-)

(I know I deserve some real scolding after this one... OK, so who is going to hit me first?)

@hadamkov

come on, now that it is done and over with.

get on with your journal which as you said that would be very good for your own self in terms of improving, documenting and trading. we all felt young and reckless sometimes, K? 3 cheers.

I love that title. A slave's quest for freedom. That is what started me on the entreprenurial path 20 years ago. Good luck, you picked a good instrument for movement.

Congratulations to all those who participated in our March Journal contest!

I will be posting in all the active journals, asking all of you to spend a few minutes and give us a summary of your experiences throughout the month of March, and how the journal has changed your trading.

Please reply to me in your own thread, as I make those posts.

Over the next few days, I will create the Polls so that everyone can start voting for the best journals to win our contest prizes.

Will update this thread when voting is opened.

The voting is now open.

I used the listing from post #34, and a few posts that followed, to compile the list of eligible journals. I checked each link and eliminated the journals that were not active.

You may vote for as many journals as you want in the poll. Just keep in mind the general rules of the contest (you can use your discretion, and vote accordingly):

- Make one post per day, every day, Mon-Fri, in your trading journal for the entire month of March.
- Majority of your posts at minimum must contain at least one screen shot or video (youtube, etc) of your trades (sim or cash).
- You need to regularly post a summary of your trading day, like a description of trades and how you did for the day, your strengths and weaknesses, etc. There must be some content in the post.
- The post must be made on futures.io (formerly BMT), not a link to your blog or other off-site location. You can post the summary content on futures.io (formerly BMT) but embed a YouTube video, that is fine.
- You must post pretty much every single day to the journal. Don't skip a few days and then post all at once.
- You must answer peoples questions as much as possible. No "secret sauce" journals.

Cast your votes below. The poll will remain open for 2 weeks (closing April 17th), at which point I will show the poll results publicly. As a reminder, the prizes are $750 in total, as below:

- First place winner: $250 gift card from Amazon.com
- Second place winner: $200 gift card from Amazon.com
- Third place winner: $150 gift card from Amazon.com
- Fourth place winner: $100 gift card from Amazon.com
- Fifth place winner: $50 gift card from Amazon.com
