Stairway to Paradise by Gershwin "I'll build a stairway to paradise with a new step every day." The plan I use is a zero sum model to exploit index futures, specifically the DOW. Now most trading is from the institutional and commercial players which must leave tons of room for the individual online trader to be a winner if you are not already a consistent winner. What is your trading rationale or framework? Are you taking or do you still take a new step every day? In your opinion where are you on the stairway for reaching your aims? How do you compare what you do to others? What is it you like about your particular approach? What is your major problem if you have one? What market or markets are you in? How did you develop or learn your concept? How would you characterize your plan, model or approach currently?
