Hey guys, I thought I just as well might start a journal right away, even though I`m not trading actively yet. Most of you probably don`t know me, but I started a thread here earlier this summer where I announced that I quit my job and ditched school to pursue trading fulltime. The thread basically went up in flames with a lot of people recommending me to rethink my decision, but also people who encouraged me to go on. Thank you all. The discouraging words made me want it even more and the encouraging words gave me some practical advice on how to pursue my education. Actually, I ended up following Sarvise`s advice on forgetting demotrading for now and concentrating myself to learn the intellectual part thoroughly first. It makes sense and as Sarvise said to paraphrase here; When I start trading for real and blow up, I know it is not because I don`t know enough about Elliot Wave, Fibonnaci, The Flying Star In The Night pattern or some other crazy indicator I did not get started to read as early as I wanted, but I`ve been going at it for roughly two months now. The plan is to read fulltime the rest of this year and then starting to watch the markets in January. Eventually demotrading and then live when I feel ready. As for which markets to trade, I have been rethinking Forex. I will probably start trading Globex Futures. Perhaps the S&P 500 E-mini. I will post my reading list later on.
