A lot of ETers say that you will have to blow out one or two accounts and pay your tuition to the market before you can begin to think of breaking even let alone generating profits. The question is there is always this talk of a couple or "several" accounts that must be blown out. There is no discussion on account size. Under the current definition, one could blow out a sub-$1000 account to meet the requirement instead of say, a $5000 account for the YM or $25,000 for equities. Thoughts?
