    Former SWAT LEO SIU (Wisconsin). My 15 year law enforcement career was cut short due to an unknown autoimmune disease. I now believe it to be Lyme Disease. I had to reinvent myself while dealing with all that goes along with dramatic life changes. I traded Futures when I was in college and I had to do something. I also had to do something on my schedule, as this illness doesn't care about bad timing. I re-entered the Futures market in 2010. I traded everything. After blowing up a couple small accounts, I decided to treat trading as a business. I now have well over 10K hours of screen time and trade real/live accounts with my money. I didn't find my edge until I met a successful ES trader. I didn't spend money on trading systems etc., I decided to find someone willing to share their knowledge. After all, I was a trained investigator. I have to say that luck was involved as well. I knew that most professionals trade the ES so that's why I chose it. There are several other reasons and advantages to trading the ES. If you watch markets and trade long enough, you will likely come to this conclusion. Much of the world is hidden in plain sight. I am between the advanced level and master, if there is such a level. I am consistently profitable, but as of this writing, it's only been like that for the past 6 months. Patience was my problem. I am a trader, but when certain conditions are present, it's as important to know what not to do as it is to know what to do and when. I had to learn to control my own psychology, as the markets will eat you alive without discipline. Trading has been more difficult than I thought it would be. I actually did pretty well trading in college. I realize now that I was just lucky. At that time, back in the early 90's, I was trading everything, but the British Pound was my favorite. When I would short that, money would just fall into my account. Years later I discovered that some guy named Soros was braking the bank over there.
