What are your goals for this year? maybe this is a stupid question as most people would probably just say "to make more money", but is there anything other than money that you'd like to learn or become better at? Do you want to learn how to read the tape?..learn more chart patterns... etc.. please share -- What were your goals last year?.. did you meet them, or did they fall short? (if so why?) -- I'll go first. My goals for this year is to lose less than last year. I dont expect to be profitable, but I remain positive. I would also like to become stronger mentally by trading with the trend instead of against it (which I think is one of the main reasons for my net loss last year). I would also like to explore different markets like futures or FX, and learn more about what economic forces move these markets.
