So guys its been about a year since i started a journal about my journey with the markets. My question is how do you know when you are ready. I firmly believe that I am ready to go live and i am going to give my reasons below. Feel free to drill me on anything guys. Bash away have at it now is your chance. I am all ears. I feel I am ready to go live because I truly feel i understand the underlying theme and the bigger picture in the market. Over the past year I have really studied price very closely to determine who is in control and what turning points look like. I have designed a method that is complete with entry, stop, profit taking, and money mangement ideas. My system has been layed out and my goals have been outlined. I have found a mentor that has taught me important things about the market and is openly available to me during the trading day in real time to explain what he feels is occuring. I have adapted his style as my own and I feel it really is my own style now. My biggest issue I feel is my limited capital but unlike others here I am starting out the way things should be when you are limited capital. Yep i said it first ONE LOTS. I will trade ONE LOTS until I have built up my confidence and expanded my capital base. The combination of a system complete with entry, stop, profit taking exit, and money management along with having a mentor that uses the same method will allow mw a better fighting chance to go live in the market.
