The George Parr Journal

  1. Hi all,

    Just thought I might also post my live trading journal as well to instill discipline and keep things into perspective in my trading endeavors .

    I'm a new trader, with a little more than 2 weeks of live experience. A graduating senior in university (major=finance), I am having a really hard time securing a full-time finance job. So I thought... might as well try trading for real to see if I can make this into a career.

    Started with 3.9k$ on Feb 19 2009, my capital now is around 9.9k$. I know the time horizon is rather short to establish whether I can make it as a trader or not, this is somewhere to begin.

    I'll post an update in a couple of weeks.
  2. Thought I update my journal.

    Had a terrible day today. Returned everything I've gained for the past 3 weeks. About 19k.

    Overconfidence got the better of me. I should covered and stop trading instead I allowed the losses to keep piling...

    I wonder if I can ever pick up myself from this terrible defeat. Gotta go back to trading 1-2 contracts again.
