Hi! I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my journal. Currently I am not involved in the market but i would like to get back into the market. After blowing through a small 4k piker stake in the equity options market I evaluated where i went wrong in my trading. I discovered where i think I went wrong and this journal is about my journey to becoming a sucessful trader. This journal will be broken down into parts. Part I - Pre Trading Stake. This is the current part I am as I do not have a trading stake saved up. During this period I will discuss my steps to designing a new system from the ground up again. I will be taking a look at each element of my system and breaking it down. Also during the phase I will write about my search for a trading internship for the summer of 2007. Part II- Internship Period. During this period I will talk about my trading internship on a regular basis. I do not know how much i will be able to reveal at the moment because im not sure what will be proprietary information and what wont. Part III- Trading Period. This part of my journal will be about the actual trading period and probably what most of you really care about. At the present I feel that I am at the very least 10 months from trading again so dont expect it right away. I am going to stick to my journal plan. Thanks again for visiting my journal.
