Some background about myself: Full time senior engineer in semiconductor field. Have been in stock market for about 3 years. Started serious tradng in 2008 and lost 54% of my initial investment in that year. In 2009, made all my lost back. So far, this year, have positive every month except of January. Looking back that two year trading life, I found that my P/L was very much synced to the market trends. I am think very hard about moving toward doing full time trading for living, not because I believe trading can make me richer, but mainly because I would like to change the life style. Before jump in, I'd like to spend another year or so to experiment if I can make enough to support the family by trading only. Due to the fact that I don't have time to trade during normal market hours, I decide to focus on Futures with volatility of extended hour of futures market, i.e. DT futures during the evenings. I have two accounts: real money and demo with equal money in them. I will use demo to develop new stratigies and use real money to force myself to keep real feeling of doing business. I will post every day's P/L with both demo and real money. By the end of this year, if result shows I can make the same amount or greater than my full time job does, I will move to full time trading.
