Anyone care to give their YTD earnings from trading? Are you a daytrader, swing trader or both?
if you are a prop trader with unlimited funds?
and what % on ytd basis that profit is of capital
started out with at beginning of yr?
if this is too private and personal a matter
to post publically thats ok
I turned 10 K into 120 K in 2000
but last 2 yrs have been much more
a struggle to make a return on capital
anywhere near that
No, I'm a home trader. I trade with 30-35K at any given time. I pull the rest out for bills and other investments.
Keep in mind with this thread that you are going to see mostly profitable traders posting. The chance of a trader posting results is directly proportional to how good those results make the trader look. Most traders are not immune from vanity.
And neither am I...Schindler Trading is up 47.0% for the year through October. (Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future returns. Futures trading is speculative and involves a high degree of risk.)
80 % ytd until I got caught in the volatility of the last
month and traded too large at times
now I am only up 50 % and nervous about being able to continue
to trade for a living ...
I like your honesty. Many on this site should take notes.
Hey I will come clean...-17,000 YTD.
I don't se anybody else willing to post losses!
Such an EGO game!
I sure had a loss this year, even though in the last few months I have been doing well with this Don Miller stuff.
