    Biography
    I live in Bloomington Indiana and own a small business with about 11 full time employees. It is largely self sufficient with good employees and management and so I am "semi-retired". Most of my day and late evenings is spent in the markets. My goal is to become a professional trader. I've been trading since the start of the bull market in March 2009 and after earning $14,000 on a $25,000 account I lost about $9,000 of those winnings before realizing that I wasn't that smart after all. I stopped trading and and have been alternating between virtual trading and real trading now for the last 12 months. My account is now over $58,000 and I work very very hard every day to get to the point where I can be consistent and fully disciplined to trade professionally. I have a long way to go which is why I still classify myself as a beginner trader.

    "I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
    - Michael Jordan, 5-Time NBA Most Valuable Player, 6-Time NBA Champion

  • - Number of posts you've written
  • - Number of thanks you've received for useful posts
  • - How long you've been a member
  • - How active you are (how often you log in, how often you view attachments, etc)
Reputation is relative to other members, so if you don't write many posts your reputation will be 0 or near 0.

You will reach Market Wizard level once your reputation is equal to about the top 5% of the highest reputation members, and you've been a member for over one year, and have written more than 500 posts.

You will earn the Legendary status once your reputation is above 100. Only the top 1% of posters earn this status.
