Hello all,

I'm still kinda new to futures io so bare with me.

SO, i just left my job to day trade. I have been day trading for the past 2 month and made $300 a day repeatedly off one contact for Crude or ES mini. Today I had a $500 day gain on ES mini open. I will start posting my pictures of daily trade entries and exits.

I have been trading the market for years. I blew up a few accounts already so I know what I am getting into. But after all the failures and time studying its time to make this full time for.:bmt:

Thank you all!

Congrats on your move to full-time trading. I've been trading just 6 weeks full-time (my partner has been in it for 12+ years), and I expect to close out my other business within the next 6-12 months to focus our efforts on our trading. You're in good company here.

Best of luck!

The best way and the best decision. I am a full time trade for a few years and have never looked back. Good luck and success.

gl, I'm a daytrader with a side business ( or the other way around). I disagree it's the hardest Job, it's comparable to being a professional sportman.

Exactly the comparison with a professional athlete.
The normal athlete first trains the technique. Like the trader who stands at the beginning and learns the markets, the platforms etc.
However, when the normal athlete develops into a professional athlete, he has to train not only his body but also his mind and his psyche to deal with success and defeat. That's just like the fulltime trader. The arena is not the sports field (the desk) but the head. Only in the head the game is played.

Agreed. When Im not in the markets and just on the side line watching trades go left and right. I realize not to make mistake but watch them and learn. Losing money is part of the job just managing how you react to it and how much you lose. Money management is key.


Being a elite member there is a educational section under downloads/indicators that is a HUGE help. I just started to read some one those with are very helpful. High recommend.

So Monday Trades with -$1000 on oil. Who thought oil could keep going up... ha ha
( My indicators where showing up trend and I fought against it)

Today going on $250 profit. Small but green to victory.

Thank you all for the feedback!
