Then, if I did get a dreaded 6-month warning, I'd spend as much time with my family, creating as many good meaningful moments and memories as possible with them, write a memoir or journal of life lessons, write down all of the things I have been thinking about working on or researching but don't have time to work on anymore in case anybody else wants to pick up where I left off. I would write songs about my family and try to perform/record it for them. I'd try to connect to and impact as many other people as possible around me in a positive way, teaching, mentoring, etc.



i know someone who is doing exactly this with their dying brother. The 'meaningful memories' they hoped for to try and make the most of their last weeks together mostly involve sitting round and crying. Then they remember some funny past moment. Then they start crying again when they realise there will be no more such memories. Its a total dirge. It's really sad.

I can't really think of anything I'd do differently. Right now everything I've got is going into this business. Living off of 30% of my income, working long days with no days off, whatever it takes. I'm in the process of my bamboo year and there is nothing I want more than what I'm doing right now.

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.

I forgot not everyone knows that terminology. Basically what it means is that I've been waiting a long time to get to where I am right now and things are finally starting to happen. See the article below for a more in-depth description:

The above may not yield a big population: trade needs to be held for approx nine months to reach target.
