Introduction: I begin work at a proprietary trading firm very soon. The U4 is sent and I'm waiting for confirmation so I can schedule the 7. I hope this only takes a week. Background: Since the beginning of the year I have been day trading with Tradestation software. My strategy has been to follow the same 15-20 stocks and ETF's looking for 1 or 2 low risk trades per day. I don't trade the opening and I don't hold over night. So far my my strategy has been profitable but unfortunately it is also unsustainable. I need to be making more money. There have been days where I did not see a single opportunity I liked enough to enter a trade. My conclusion is that I need to expand my potential trades and my knowledge of TA. I am looking at 1-5-15 minute charts. The trades: Risk management has been a priority. Generally I am looking for a risk reward of at least 1:3. Before I enter a trade, I have labeled both the profitable exit and the cover in the event of a loss. I have taken these stops every time without fail. I believe this consistency and discipline will make me a successful trader. Capital starvation: My current income situation will be okay because of a second part-time job. This provides me with greater objectivity trading and I hope it doesn't come at the expense of being burned out. Criticism is greatly appreciated, LaChenille.
