I'm doing this to make a point and **finishing up with a question**. ANYONE can be profitable. Money Management is as close to the "Holy Grail" as you're going to get. Is it worth it? Why not find something better to do. Or at least not daytrade. I could have better spent my years of college worrying about how much I made or lost for the day. That could be part of the reason for my sometimes severe anxiety issues. I have never been this consistently profitable. Daytrading ruined me a while back. But I learned A TON. IMO that's one of the only ways you're going to get a handle on the market and true feel. Since the age of 15 I have been buying and selling this stuff. 3-4 years ago I began trading and just recently have become as profitable as I care to be (i'm 23) (it's all relative as far as $$$ is concerned. 100 is the same as 500 as long as I'm right.) Started with approx 800 (college student here). Alright, TA and FUNDAMENTALS...... 130% so far (drawn down from 180%) since sept. Drawdown was partly due to my effort to try and prove the Black-Scholes model incorrect (didn't work as planned...but still trying ). Still holding USO as a hedge for my gas to work. The biggest % return on a stock being DRYS (~100%) using nothing more than a few BASIC fundamental principles ( no technicals). Now the kicker: The funniest part is that I was pretty much "turned down" by HR @ RW Baird for a decent internship in equity research because they're looking for a 3.5 and I have a 3.3. Is this normal? ***My question is.....should I mention this performance to them? Not even sure how I present it to them. In a cover letter? Call up HR and let them know that my GPA and resume don't mean anything?
