What made you decide that you are a trader?

    Just curious. For me it was a rather drawn out process.
  2. For me, it was the lure of easy money from n00bs.

    I'm being serious, and you aren't. I don't believe you make your living taking advantage of the ignorance of new traders. I am a new trader, but I've been studying the craft for some time. I know nothing about you, but I'm confident enough now to believe that I could outwit you on most markets. I wouldn't have spent so much time on it if I didn't believe this, on an unconscious level, for most of my life. That's why it's hard for me to explain. Please don't take my lack of personal details for disrespect. I've been studying the psychological aspects, and I'd appreciate some positive insight.
  4. unemployment...
  5. I trade YM. Why don't you bring your best? and I am willing to post my account statements each day for 1 month.

    I would love to, but as you can see from my previous posts, I don't yet have enough money to open an account. It's going to take me at least another 2 months to raise $2000. If you want, PM me and I'll give you my email.

  7. OMFG, another legend. Why don't you post your school lunch selections?
  8. No longer in school arb... we got done with finals yesterday.
  9. Cool, then let the Clash of the Titans begin.
  10. lol....

    You don't even have $2,000 and you call yourself a trader?

    Its OK.. most traders are broke ($0)... so, you'll fit right in.
