Hi hen322. Thank you so much for reading my journal!
But in any case. Im AM still trading and trading live only. No SIM. And thats been the big transition for me.

I only have alerts set to tell me whan someone comments to me on FIO. Like you did.

I have done SO MUCH BETTER since I left. Like night and day. So much less stress because I don't feel like I'm going to be chastised.

There are people that are VEHEMENTLY against daytrading. It CANNOT be done and anyone who tries is a complete degenerate loser gambler!

Thats the feeling this forum gave me. DON'T daytrade... do what "I" do. Of course they never say that and they really do MEAN WELL. Yet it is what it is.
I also found as soon as I wrote something I felt I had to stick to it. The market is fluid and dynamic so looking for rules is one thing that messes me up.
I take dozens of trades a day and scratch on most right now. Small losses and small gains and a few big runners.
I have IMMENSE respect for Lance Beggs and after leaving here and coming across this article. I found partly why I stuggled on here...

After saying that...

THIS IS A MUST READ for anyone looking for advice OUTSIDE themselves...




The article above is why I'm focusing on myself FIRST. You said it. I KNOW all this stuff. It's up to ME to trust it and trade it.

Thanks again hen322!

Thanks for posting here! Thanks for the recommended articles too, I'll check those out.

I'm glad you are not giving up and still have confidence in yourself.

Sorry I didn't see this post til now, I've been really busy taking a webinar and reviewing some education material. One thing I learned these past weeks is about profits. In other words, when will I be making money? And my instructor told me was...
you make money when "a run" comes. There will come a point where you will be making money and be on a streak. It might last 1-2 months, and then you would go back to making break even trades because the market changed. And you just keep at it until the next run comes. So don't expect to be on "a run" all the time. There's periods where 1-2 weeks could not be tradable. Then, all of a sudden, the market changes, and your trades start working again.

P.S. If you type an "@" in front of my username, I'll get your posts sooner when you mention me. I hope to hear your progress in the future!
