Attn New Traders: A Graphic Lesson for all

  1. I had some time today and was playing around with my trade manager. For all new traders out there who are wondering if you will ever become profitable and your stubborn persistence will finally payoff, take a look a this graph.

    This represents all my trades since I began trading on my current platform. Looks like things finally clicked for me somewhere after 950 trades or so. Things got tuff right before the moment as my capital was delpeting.

    I thought this was really interesting. First time I had run this. I guess I was afraid to look. This also doesn't count about $15,000 I gave away to good traders in my first Forex account. Most of these trades are futures trades. Throw in some bonds every once in a while and a few options.

    Keep at it. It will happen for you.

  2. looks like a run away bull market.
