Hi, I have a small account with $18k in it so I decided to trade it aggressively because I'm bored. This is NOT my main account so I decided to try trading it aggressively. The basic problem with this approach is because I will be plunging I face two major challenges: 1) Do I get blown up on a single event? 2) I get chopped up on trend-trades that are consolidations (ie usually it takes 2-3 trades to determine a trend has disappeared, so I end up eating up a lot of capital). I will be trading pretty much everything, mostly things with high leverage. If my account gets bigger, I may not plunge as much. I will continue to post if I am bored/I don't blow this account out. I prefer very tight stops with good Risk/Reward ratios so I stop out alot I don't have a goal, I'll just try and do the best I can. Because I only have $18k in the account, I can only really trade futures until I get the equity above $25k.
