I've been toying around with this idea and now is as good as time as any to try this. The official start date is March 3, 2008 and ends December 31, 2008. During this period, no additional capital infusions are allowed and the desired goal is before commissions. I really haven't thought about how detailed this journal should be and I'm a bit lazy on top of that, but please give me your thoughts on what should be included. This isn't an excercise in self-aggrandizement, but rather a personal challenge to see if this sort of thing can be achieved trading the ES intraday. By way of brief background, I was a CFO at a large company that was acquired by a private equity firm a couple of years ago. I stayed on for a month and then retired at the ripe age of 40. Trading has fascinated me for a long time and I decide to take a small piece of my windfall from the sale to get into this business. The first year was spent learning--and losing. Second year was profitable with good equity growth curve month by month. Now comes the hard (and fun) part.
