i have something to confess. i never closed my account as i said i was going to in my "closing my trading account today" thread. for those that don't know, it had dropped below $2,000 at IB, so i couldn't place a trade. when i knew i had one trade left and it was a loser, I WAS PISSED and started that thread. so for those that want to complain that i didn't close it, i was just emotional at the time i wrote that. i decided to wait a few days and then decide if i should close it. for the record, even if i did close it, my plan was to 100% open another one when i had some more money. i am never going to quit trading, so don't bother replying to this telling me to quit! well, i sold something and last week i got my account back above $2,000. once again, i knew i had to nail my next trade. WELL THIS TIME I DID IT! lol and i nailed a few more after that, too. i have made over 10 trades in the last 5 trading days and my account is up over 30%. lol yes, i know i'm being very risky, but i'm gonna go for it. it's not like i have a wife and 3 kids. my next post in this thread will be when i'm either over $4,000 or back under $2,000. PLACE YOUR BETS! the biggest upset victory in ET history is about to take place. p.s. i'm putting the phrase, "dead man walking" here now, before some smartass decides to use it.
