Just posting here as I've decided to give it a go.I have the time but not the money to risk.After this if I don't make it that's it .A cost of a thousand Euros,a new multiple monitor card and two new monitors is a reasonable investment and good for the home too.I think I'll pass both the challenge and verification but don't think I could do this as a job but we'll see.I'll let you know when I go live

Thought I'd try their £35,000 account free trial. It runs until the 30th.

Back to £35216 after almost hitting the day loss (-£1578).Trying another method so I'm confident I'll do it if I can get the screen time.I was able to login to this website with the laptop but with the PC it says I have ad blocker enabled but I can't see where.the laptop ran the same antivirus so it's not that and I'm writing this with the phone.Anyway it's just for fun until I pay.If anyone can suggest a workaround for the access I can post the screenshots again unless the laptop resurrects.

£36090 The Dow is the smoothest of the indices although they don't like you using it?

If it was the challenge I'd stop here but may as well use the rest of the time to see if I can maintain with sensible lots.I was really just clicking herky jerky as the size was too big.May take some trades on the longer timeframes.All those years ago I should have bought the forerunner to tradestation.Can't remember what it was called but it was £600? back then.Would have been the best thing I ever bought.

I did buy 'Python By Example' by Nichola Lacey but haven't finished the projects yet.Maybe ask me in two months? It's not sensible to trade unless you've backtested and at least know the odds of something working.That's the truth of it.

I'm usually awake at 6am so might try walking for an hour or so from now on.I pulled my achilles in late feb running so I need to strengthen it to try again and I think walking now should be ok but if not,I'll stop.Probably try it for a month and then maybe if I can hop without pain or reaction I'll try walk running etc.

Tried to anticipate with large lots again and chickened out.No point being right after you're dead.I'll add USOil as it's very smooth but the lot size is so small I'll have to trade 10 so that will drive up the apparent size per trade.I think 10%/month is doable with normal risk but normal intraday swinging not scalping.Sitting in front of the pc all day is like prison that's why I was clicking I need the relief.Should be able to change though.Done for the day and tomorrow I'll be busy so maybe no trading.
