I'm uploading a new video I did it again, starting from 0, and without indicators:

This time I feel better because the Buy and Hold lost 50% while I made 452%!!!

Is obvious that you don't have stops and targets, but I tend to exit quickly when I'm on the loss side and let my winners run. This make me think about trading without exact targets and exiting when you see something, for example, in some strategies I made, I exited because a fast SMA turning and things like that.

Is uploading the video, will embed here.

I'm a Mac user, so I record my desktop every day with iShowU, and edit my videos with iMovie. Sorry I think you are a windows user, don't you?

Yup for now at least. OS X looks appealing, but would have to buy a Mac...

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

Maybe it's just me, But the s&p 500 stocks look a lot more volatile in the last couple years with more frequent gaps than they do in this game.

I'm going to ask Matthias if he can update the charts or maybe even Load smaller time frames. I emailed him once and he's not too fond of technical analysis, he said "It doesn't really work". I assume he's a little bitter after losing some money, but I wouldn't really know.
