Now, don't get jealous, my account is still tiny (under £1000).

One thing I noticed, scalping with tight stops is really hard work. I prefer swings much more.

I am really grateful for all the tips / pointers / comments etc. Keep up the good work !

This is the trading history, if anyone's interested. I had a birthday bonus there - a free bet of £5 per point.

Well, start a "double your money in a week" thread, and call out your trades. Then we can all follow and make a truck load.

I'm just a beginner and I'm following the advice of others. I don't feel too confident to give advice or ask others to follow me. If I ever get to £1000, I might start a journal with live calls. Even if I lose it all, it should still be interesting.

My (limited) experience tells me that there is something in DC's method, though.

Apparently hes short 200gbp pp from 11200 and pissed with ig for making the price go to 11520. His stop was at 11450 and he feels the fill was unfair and that the only reason the price got there was because ig put their price there.

He's busy writing his, how to deal with a 50k loss? and he's given ocean finance a call to deal with his debt problems.

Doubling money is easy: start with $10, make $10 more by getting 1 tick in futures (minus commission) and you have $20... then again, most brokers won't allow you to start with only $10, lol.
