everybody want,s to daytrade, ie open and close a position the same day, wow pennies from heaven, well that,s the general idea, anybody who daytrades profitably are not blogging or sharing secrets with anyone else !!, so that just leaves the losers and simulators, who hope and even pray for success in daytading, the best advice based upon my experience and countless others experiences is that daytrading is for losers, that is a fact, so digest please. so how to profit !!!, take a longer time frame, a few days to enter and exit a position, based upon my own experience and again countless others experiences, this is the only way to trade and make money, of course humans are addicts, must sit at that screen all day or least part of the day, win or lose, mostly lose, but hey it,s only sim, start again tomorrow in the search for the investment system grail, please stop fantazing, you waste your time which is more precious than the money you lose lose lose and sometimes maybe win, take the longer time frame, for example the average stock moves 3% to 5% per weeek on the NYSE, but hey that ain,t enough, I need that in the next five minutes, you loser you lose, I know I was a big big loser who did not learn for a long time, I learn now and profit, sometimes I still dream about daytrading I HAve have seen the light and the $$$ in my account,


longer time frame, stocks and options, monitor the market one or two time a day especially with options, hardest thing with this style of trading is filling in the time, find other pursuits, believe me your time will be better spent and the point you shall make money, but everybody want action now, well take a flight to vegas,
as the investment $$ grow, your confidence grows as will your investments.

be smart, not tart,

I think he is attempting to "journal" away his envy of successful intraday traders. I'm looking forward to it...

Be nice. Everyone has their own path and we don't need such negative posts here.

I think my reply was both civil and appropriate. Had I been a little more childish, I would have been tempted to tell him to do something to himself. However, I'm not looking to start a fight here; I just find his berating of other posters on this board to be unappealing.

Congratulations on your journal!



In the spirit of our March Trading Journal contest, I am asking everyone to spend a few minutes and share their journaling experience.

A) What are the top five benefits you have seen as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

B) What are the top five problem areas you have identified as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

C) Were you initially reluctant to start this trading journal? If yes, why?

D) How do you feel, overall, about your journaling experience?

E) Would you recommend to others that they should also start a trading journal?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I appreciate your posts, and I hope you have benefited from your journal. I also know that others will benefit as well, just by reading about your own experiences.

Enjoy your weekend,
Mike
