Hello,

starting Monday I will trade futures for the first time. All that with high risk. 30 ticks and I am out of the game. I made a bet with my friend that by the last day of this year I will earn $2,000,000 (hehe, no, not one but two) starting with an account of only couple of thousand dollars. I have not heard anyone actually making it. Even my experience tells me, it is not possible, but I simply want to try, because I think it is worth trying.

In case in the future there will be posts from someone else than me, I would NOT want a negative comment. The whole thing is just an experiment and I am excited about it.

Good Luck to you all!

Don't consider this as negative because it would be positive for me.....Why don't you give me all the money in your account and trade sim with the same amount that you give me and if you go two weeks and don't lose it all I'll give you your money back....if you lose I keep it and at least you know I will enjoy it and you won't be giving it to some scumbag banker with his HFT.

might be against you on this. But I have seen with my own eyes guys that are dumber than a box of hammers do what it is you are trying to do...so it is not impossible.

Best of luck to you...I hope you make it.

hahaha I forgot about Rosenmontag. Are market closed on Monday? Well, starting on Tuesday is less cliche^^

And someone will have to explain me expiration, I don't want Heating Oil delivered to my door hahaha. What if on last trading day of the exp. month I have my position open?

As you see, I am prepared better than one could possible imagine

Whatever you trade, do not trade Live Hogs. If you forget the expiration date you might end up with 44,000 lbs of pigs in front of your door for each contract

Good luck!

I hope you take the time to sign up for the "March Madness" contest, I have a feeling this thread will draw a lot of attention, could be an easy $250.00 on top of your $9000.00 per day goal.



Be assured, we're all here to help you in your "experiment."
