here is trader 15's partial blotter - its a little lower than the 5200 i thought was in there - but now that i have checked it -this is where the start will be for the week - this post contains the 1 tick loss plus commission from thursday -when he hit the longside on a short call -now we are square with the post from here -sorry for any confusion on this-have not decided if i will post blotter everyday a trade is made or just at the end of the week - time will tell i guess - this account is locked at 1 contract -and we run a 7 tick stop

It would be a good experience for the 15 y.o. to keep his journal here at futures.io (formerly BMT) and document the rules. Lurkers might be enlightened.

today i have decided to pressure test trader 15 -i want him to react instead of think about what he will do -he will be told the entry and stops with no target zone -will most likely update the journal on a 1 to 1.5 hour basis so i can keep focus on trader 15 - so all calls will most likely be played out when posted -however the blotter will be posted for the 19th tommorrow -and any readers will be able to line up the trades in there time slots-good luck today

there will not be any trades today for trader 15 -due to his nervious tension - he was clearing his throat over and over -and when we closed out his trading screen it stopped nearly instantly -so we will see what 6/20 brings -this is a little tougher than i had thought
