Life update: I've been swamped! I manage a family business & over the last 2 months we've been entering peak season, each year getting busier and to start this one off we moved the whole business to a neighboring city. To be honest it has hindered my studying more than I wanted but I still plan to watch every darn video this challenge has to offer and some. With new environments come new opportunities! I'm now able to scan the market/ potentially trade through out the day. This vastly changes how I'll be approaching my trades, where as before the only time I could run scans/ trade was the first hour of open and after close when I get back home. With great power comes great responsibility luckily I still ride the PDT wagon so with all these new opportunities I have to stay vigilant, only 3 trades a week so I need to target the best of the best moves, still focusing on breakout plays but I'm watching it all

Just now noticing I must made made a pretty good mistake when logging some of the trades during the revision of my account. I'm showing 100% of my trades but I must've averaged some numbers wrong because Profit.ly is saying I've lost $65.55 more than what E*trade is saying. I'm not entirely sure how to find this mistake(s). Hopefully when I'm able to verify those trades I can find the issues. Just wanted to leave this posted for future notice.

This marks the date I revised my entire profit.ly. I found that my page and sloppy input didn't meet the requirements to pass the Challenge legitimately. I had an unhinged first couple weeks of trading, but I hope my efforts to restore my account and progress are enough to seal the deal for now. Since I started paper trading, I have kept a log of my performance for each strategy I focused on. If it wasn't for having to revise my account, I believe I would have just kept focusing on something new each month, but I feel like I've enough personal data to work with now. This month and until I feel ready to explore again, I will focus on my strengths. I feel like diving deeper into what I've performed well with will allow me to really grasp the strategy and size up when it comes around.
