    How long have you been in the market? I mean the time period that you are actively trading.
  2. A little more than a year and a half, grinding it out daytrading. Have been faced with learning a lot about myself in that time period. A whole lot. :)
  3. "Striving to stay somewhere between pulling corn and digging potatos" simply put for me, means not getting too high or too low, emotionally.

    When I first started trading I ended each day exhausted from emotion. Well it stands to reason that a man can become consumed with fear, when the reality hits him that he has jumped into something with both feet, not knowing what the heck he is doing. :p

    No, the 100K I lost before I figured out how to trade. Hell the 800 bucks was CHEAP compared to that!:D

    You mean that goes away after awhile? If I could just move some euphoria from the good days to counteract the nausea from the bad days...

    What's it to you? Are you writing a book, or something?

    Personally, I thought it was a good question. It gives you an idea of who is posting on the boards.
