    Yes I have a strategy. Has it been tested thru all market conditions, no I can't say that it has, but that's ok for now.

    This is an attempt at trading, I will keep it very simple and focus on one instrument only.

    I also plan to protect my attitude, if I feel this forum is affecting me in a negative way I will find another way to chronicle this experience.
