Awesome trading month!!! It's been quite an experience to follow your entries not only for this month but also back in January. Looking forward to the next month of journal entries. If we could vote for the winner of the journal contest I would vote for you. With a month like that Horst you can afford a tablet for every member on this forum. I'll give you my address later so you can mail it to me. Thanks in advance.

bluemele, don't you use this same method? What were your results for the period?
A whole month of gains without a losing day seems impossible to me.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

That's a good point! I once had this crazy professor who said "if you manage to get every answer wrong on an exam, you will receive an A+" - because *he* felt that if you were able to get every answer right, you be just as likely to get every answer wrong, and for *him* it was a question of conditioning your mind/emotions away from guessing. For what it's worth, I think there is a difference between completely impossible and highly unlikely. I don't think results like this are impossible - unlikely, sure. But with a solid foundation of proper trade management and experience, i think it's doable. Besides i think Horst was a black swan last Halloween too - that might have something to do with it?
Mike - I wasn't trying to instigate anything by saying that comment either, just like playing a little devils advocate. Hope the hand is healing nicely
