Yes, I didn't really see the point in keeping a journal here anymore. Still trading fulltime though. Up a little over 5% since the start of march. Will evaluate at the end of this month, to see if I want to keep doing this or go back to work.

5% is not bad profit, certainly more than you would get from a bank these days. If it's not enough to sustain your lifestyle however then you either need to evaluate your strategy or find another source of income I guess.

I planned for 2%/month in the first three months, so it's working out fine. If I decide to continue, I'll aim for 3%/month in the next three months. Largest drawdown so far was 4.20%, while theoretically I'm fine with drawdowns a lot larger. Plenty of room to scale.

My main worry is becoming bored with sitting alone in my study all day :)

Okay, I'm done. Been trading fulltime for 6 months now, but bored beyond belief. Will take the remainder of July to unwind my portfolio, take a nice holiday in August and back to a job in September.

It seems to me that a journal with full statistics is what can help you to find your mistakes and problems faster, and thus solve them. And the look from outside will never hurt. Moreover, it concerns such a serious issue as trading, which requires special attention and concentration. It is obvious that you choose positions reasonably enough. It means that you learn and see the opportunities that the market offers. I don't want to give you any specific assessment of your work. Just like all of us have stronger days, there are moments when it doesn't quite work out the way you thought it would. But progress is obvious. Keep up the good work. You will be successful trader.
