If you turn 2 K into 30 K at the end of the year, that would be an annual performance of close to 2000% (equivalent to total gain = 28 K divided by initial capital or 2 K = 1400% over 9.5 months).

I think this is quite ambitious.

i know my english is bad, but i will try my best to detail all the trade that i take. First it will help me about psychology part. Because i know since the day i start trading i didnt apply money management, i didn't trust myself,. worst part is i didn't tell my self the true about trading. So today is the day for change because from yesterday i know i have to do it now or i will lost my last 2k. i already lost 170 out of 2k but i know what i did wrong, and i record it and memorized with so it wont happen again.

Time to change you Mr Nhat. i did to many things wrong, you learn about it but u never avoid it.

Things need to change:
- never move your stop.
- Never go against the market trend in each section according to you intermarket analysis indicator.
- Do not look for home run, get your daily target goal done and call it a day.
- Do not try to get revenge from market.

I know what you are saying, i dont really care about how much i will make i care about when im going to be profit, also if i dont give my brain a specific goal and due date , i never get to where i want to be. i think that call positive thinking.

Thanks a lot man. please keep it coming.

interesting dashboard, I have been thinking about creating something similar for my trading as I do my homework to have it semi-automated... is this done via DDE and interfacing with MBT API or some other API, curious.. thanks!
