    Biography
    Been investing in stock market for over thirty years. During that time I was able to make a consistent 5 to 15 percent return. Over the last two years I've been struggling to learn day trading. After two years I realized most of the instruction out there has it in the wrong order.... Money management first (find good CPA and set up Trader Status on your main trading account), of course you all probably already know that.... WOW the thousands I would have saved doing that first... Next read about money management... Trading platform, Data Service, Broker are all tied in together for research items... Kind of have to do all those at the same time.

    I may not know the right way, but I surely can tell you the wrong way to do things, as I have done most of them wrong....

    Will have to redo this as I go along. I trade primarily in stocks. Retired from NAVY (have to wait another 6 years to collect however), father of three girls, and California transplant from SYR, NY.

    Have a great day.... Thank you Big Mike for having this BBS. (<-- showing my age.... lol)

    3/26/2014 Update: Now if I could just learn to follow my own observations quicker. Have found also that a faster computer does not solve your problems if you are flat out trading wrong.
