    Well, I didn't make 30k in two days, but I did just read Catch 22.
     
  3. If it's who I think it is that's nothing short of amazing.

    Hope he can keep it up and it's a long time before he hits the wall.

    Good trading
     
  4. Are these CME FX futures?
    How come he never paid any commission?
     
  5. I don't think it's futures, there is no contracts listed. "Commissions" come out of the spread.
     
  6. Spot/dealer FX.
     
  7. Amazing.

    He's swinging some big leverage there @ 10% risk per trade.

    I believe its 100% doable, tho.
     
  8. Well, with atticus coaching him, hell to the yeah!
     
  9. I didn't know Atticus was the big swinging dick in FX.

    Cool man. Maybe he can teach me a few things???

    :)
     
  10. FWIW, I had nothing to do with the performance of this account.
