Newbie Trading Statement (3 months in)

  1. Alex wanted me to post this newbie trading statement. I was against it. Its from a user in our trading room ( who's never traded futures before and has attended for about 3 months now. There are a lot of losing cynical traders on Elite Trader. Losing is frustrating and I feel for you guys. I've been there and don't want to return to that world. I'm sure I will get comments like "THAT IS ADOBE PHOTOSHOPED!!" and "THOSE ARE SOME PATHETIC PROFITS" keep in mind. This is a newbie with a $5000 account. No one makes thousands a day on an account that small. We'll here it is. Against my better judgement, let the banter begin! Lets see who is childish enough to make the first negative comment. <br>

    If you come to learn for 10 days and expect to be super trader, then dont even bother taking the trial. All professions require time. If this doesn't acuse a lot of negative energy I'll ask robo if we can post is statement at least once a week or maybe every day if its ok.
  2. Pretty impressive. Personally I would go up a timeframe and try to capture bigger swings with less trades, since 25 contracts on a small account comes out to like $150 in commissions.

    But profit is profit, well done
