  1. Everyone who has been around for awhile has blown out at least once ...

  3. While we are waiting on lundy's story...

    For those that have blown out, how did you raise enough capital to start over (e.g. get a job and save for a couple of years, find new backers, etc)?

  5. I was smart enough that I didn't put everything I had in the account the first time. Traded a $10,000 account down to $1,500, and then backed off for a few months and studied my ass off, then jumped back in trading only one ES contract.

    Sorry to hear your misfortune Lundy.

    Assuming you are the same person, I remember you from 12-18 months ago. IIRC you were looking for trading partners with $500,000 minimum to play with.

    My thoughts are with you. Keep looking at the sun and you will never see the shadows.
