Staring with 10K.

don't know what else to say but just going to try real hard.

I could think of a few things, like information on how you plan to do it, how long you have been trading, what tools you use in your method, books you've read, mentors, chart screenshot, why you want to be a trader, where you think you lack in your plan, and, well.. you get the idea... Look forward to hearing more...

As consistently profitable traders.. "We get paid to wait, and we wait to get paid."

Most people are looking for something when posting a public journal, some just use it as a place to store their trade information I suppose. There are a lot of people here who are willing to give feedback, help you with ideas, etc, if you care to share them. If not, then good luck to you on your trading career!

It's was brought to my attention that perhaps this forum is quelling trading methods and systems and canning and selling them elsewhere. Once I heard this I immediately closed my journal.

I looked at the numbers on the front page. 306 new members @ 50 for the elite cult = $15300 so far this month if they all join. Not to mention what is made on banner ads. Those are expennnnnsssiivvvee. Then lets take a look at any kick backs from brokers, junkware vendors and "partners". No need to even trade at that point.

If I ever find my method on someone's website being sold?? Well all can say is that I will know where it was quelled from. Better buy a spaceship and build your next mansion on the moon because there is no where on earth you could hide where my guys won't find you.

While waiting for this trade to pay off..

I utilize no "method" per say, except maybe that which is buried deep withing my brain.

No indies, no TL's, no "pivots" in the traditional sense.

I quickly flip thru several timeframes, starting with 5 min, 15 min, 1 hour and daily. I get a "feel" then place the trade.

I'm taaking my 10,000 to 100,000. Or die trying. Willing to risk it all in this noble quest.

how fast to going to make 100K?

Odds are against you with 10K to make 1000%, Copenhagen has nice furniture for 10K. Just my Opin,not being a smart arse,just realistic.

PS: I am no "swingtrader" so expect me to suddenly get out and reverse. I'm a DAYTRADER in every sense, like to play the action. And I like lots of it!

10,000$ USD is on the line and risked! i'm cool with that.

very good resolve,

then you have the recipe for success,

and, since I'm coming into this thread late, it appears you already have succeeded!

Good trading to you......

however, now, share!, with the rest of us...

that's the price of entry into our club

we share, and liberally,

so, let's discuss your charts, what they look like, what methods you used, and how you handled your targets, stop losses, and runaway winners, what hours you traded (pre/post market, over weekend, regular only), and what analytics you favored....

share!

i fear i have little to offer..

standard 5 min, 15min, 1 hour and daily

bare charts, just price against time, nothing more nothing less

except what i "see" with my eyes and how thats interpreted in my head

Always running various scenarios in my head as i look thru my charts..

i like this long here, but not too long

a good trader, i am convinced, reads between the lines

see's his charts, then charts, in his mind's eye, "beyond" what he sees with his eyes
