I was going to start a journal thread last weekend, but didn't quite get around to it. Last weekend, my 2008 profit was a little over 25K, and I was probably going to title this thread similarly to some of the other threads here (taking X to 10X by end of year). This week has been horrible though. I've lost around 28K so far this week, so I'm down about 2.5K this year. Last year, I had daytrading profits of about 5K, so my total daytrading profit is about 2.5K. I'm dangerously close to losing money. A couple more bad trades will do it.
