Today is Day 20 and with tears in my eyes and gratitude in my heart (Special thanks, @Big Mike and @PandaWarrior, @josh and MANY MANY MORE) I announce that my account stands at $31,554.90.

Final trade of this combine netted $975.


Congratulations. I read (most of) your journal last night and this morning. I did not follow it in real time but shared you journey. Thank-you. It was a good read. Thanks for sharing.

My journal is factual but boring.
Perhaps due to not having a defined (specific) goal. I will think about that.

/OK

I don't think I've ever been as happy for someone I don't know before! You are the man

Congratulations again. You showed impressively that small consistent gains can very well be the foundation of something greater. Even though you pushed it a little on the last day - but let's take that as an appetizer of what is to come once you compounded your earnings and add size

I will make sure to follow you into the funded team - with consistent results sometime in 2015 my friend

I can't describe how excited I am for you. I know you were disappointed in not winning the contest, but instead of whining you went to work and passed your own combine. I think that says a lot. You put your head down and went to work. Good job!

John's scout call is scheduled for tomorrow. I am expected to do LTP; however the call / discussion is mandatory before the LTP can be started.

There are very little things that teach you more than losses. Trading losses may not be at par with the icy clawing losses of loved ones, but they are similarly mind numbing. Whether its your first loss that you seldom understood, or a private fiasco that you discreetly skimmed over in a public forum - it would've been better if I had recorded it fresh in the journal! If you have access to that scenario, set of feelings and environmental factors that led to the actual physical loss (e.g. - by journalling about it) then you have a ready bunker to take shelter behind when the next assault is about to happen. I wish I had journalled more often - I would have literally built a fortress of bunkers by now. That is no trivial or mean achievement. Trust me, you need all help you can get while doing something as difficult as trading.
