been awhile, this forum has always been entertaining to me and most of all INFORMATIVE to me, I will entertain you and inform you guys back. I learned most of my preliminary shit from this message board believe it or not. I am extremely bored most of the times as well... Came up from managing $10k to learn, trading YM contracts, ES contracts, to a good amount of my own money in stocks purely. Futures for hedging. I'm not looking for 100% , 35% a year is more then enough. ----------- Plan: I usually go for 30% but his year, I'm going to work espically hard to hit 40% on trading capital. What does this mean? 1. No fkups on any trades. 2. No play trades 3. No new tested ideas , only profitable ideas I've tested 1000s of times and executed many times and profitable. 4. 1% risk max, 7-15% reward 5. Will use 2x margin when the time is low risked so I can hit that 40% mark. Its march already, I'm up 10% this year. (gold trade and others) I have 30% more to go. 9 more months, 9 more trades (around 1 trade per month) ---------------------- 6 keys to success. 1. Long term experience in the markets. 6 years of full time. 2. Proven profitable method , proven. 3. Patience, I Wait 3-4 weeks per trade. Trade once a month. 4. Keep risks low = 1% Go for rewards only up 10-15-20% 5. Theres no such thing as hope, only patterns I recognizze 6. Decent execution (don't miss out on good shit) We hope for the best, work at our best, and hopefully I will get my goal this year. ------------------------------- I will be managing money in asia (HK) . 50/50 on profits, 1% management fee.
