  1. anyone here.....?
  2. A lot of people, including me.

    Few will admit it/post in here.
  3. i was up about 15% as i caught onto that early year rally up to 1440 now i am down about 9%. I am 18 and started trading at the beginning of this year.
  4. lol 15%

    on what 10k?
  5. auspiv


    im down
  6. ggoyal


    he's still learning. 10k without leverage, not bad for a starter to be up 15%
  7. %'s are pretty pointless comparison is all I'm saying.
  8. ggoyal


    actually its not. someone could be up 1mm trading a 100m account. is that good?

    %'s are what r used for compparable purposes, numbers by itself have no meaning.

  9. You really have no idea what you're talking about.
  10. close, 15k, i'm 18 for an 18 year old that is alot of money, i worked 3-4 years plus saved everything my grandparents/parents gave me.

    i didn't mention but i was up 15% then down around 10% but as of this week i have worked my way back to around -5%.
