no i have not made any fortunes in the daytrading arena, I guess something is wrong with me then. i have made money in the trend though but only after figuring out daytrading is a mugs game and that was after many many years in. I still daytrade though as i get bored but i make no money from it in the end, nothing thats worth the effort anyway and i know there will be many people who can relate to that even if they do not admit it as i know because i have been there unbiasedly. Also remember it is not something you guys want to accpet or hear but you should be honest with yourselves.
I have made much more money away from trading and in my other businesses.
I tell you though and no one will believe me or accpet this but one day you will too come to the conclusion i guarantee it, that daytrading is not worth the effort, i have worked in a prop house too and only 1 or 2 traders kept the whole business afloat along with the desk fees and comms. I have been around, i have done and tried everything un-biasedly and stuck to a plan unconditionally, i have read every damn book and have good disciplne instilled in me, but i say again it means nothing if you cannot perform and make the woola
Like I said before, nothing surprises me, even your capacity for taking it out on us.
