I am a trader with two years of experience, never had a down gross month. In a few days i'll be switching from trading my firm's money to trading my own money remotely. I have found it hard to be profitable with my firms high ticket costs and split. I also find that I don't trade within my ability when trading someone else's money. Instead of trying to make $500 to $1500 a day, I push too hard, and as a result, trade too many tickets and put on too many stupid positions. I wanted to know if anyone had any advice for trading on my own, especially if you have made the switch yourself. I would appreciate any input.
