I was very much interested in following a trader here who planned to take a £100 OANDA account and parlay it into £5000 in a year, though I did comment that I was curious to see if the thread lasted. Another trader wrote that all the individual had to do was make 1.8% per day compounded over 220 days. Unfortunately, this quest appears to pretty much be over. Being the simple man that I am, I did not quite understand why. Perhaps it had something to do with it not being worthwhile without the trading being automated, or unless it was conducted using a daily timeframe, or something to do with a friend who joined the forum at the same time having abandoned the site. Whatever the reason, it seems I will not have the pleasure of following the odyssey’s progress, hence my establishing this thread. What little money I had for trading I withdrew to spend on Christmas gifts last December (I don’t use credit cards) so I’m slowly replenishing my discretionary funds (very slowly) and when I’m up to $100 (I’ve saved about half that amount so far) I’ll get started. All of my measly income is generated online, so it might take me ’till about the middle of February to get there, if not longer, but at least by putting my plan in writing it will generate a level of commitment on my part that will help motivate me to exert whatever amount of effort is necessary to find the hundred bucks and get underway.
