  1. Ok guys, time to shine. How much did you manage to keep/make/hoard/take from the markets in 2008?

    My take = 168K. Much, much more than I expected and most of it came after August.

    Goal for 2009..... to be able to keep the 168K and stay humble and disciplined.

    OK who is next?

    :D :D :D
  2. i just want to make the same pile of $$ in 2009 as in 2008 (but with less drawdown). the only way i could net the same $$ in 2009 is by starting with more capital. the crazy volatility is over i think.
  3. I started with $3,190. It's worth $27,717.47 at the time of this posting.

    15 trades...9 winners...6 losers.

    Average win: $3,801
    Average loss: $812
  4. Correction

    Average win: $3,267

    Coffee had not kicked in this Christmas morn.
  5. It would be nice if people listed their style of trading (day trading, swing trading, stocks, futures, etc.) to acheive the results they post.
  6. I used options to trend follow futures ( corn, crude oil, US dollar index). Typically held the position 5-40 days.
  7. I day trade ES only. Typical setup is 1+1, which sometimes goes to 2+2 rarely 4+4 seldom 8+8.
    end result = 168K :D
