Kudos to you. I probably would have quit seeing such a drawdown. Thanks for sharing your fighting mentality!

@OceanRider If you aren't ready to go that big, use fractional kelly for now. Maybe 3/4 or 1/2 or whatever size feels comfortable to you.

I love that Kelly is about using a system and making things more mechanical. Thank you again for sharing this.

Stocks to trade is your best option but it can be costly so use a scanner and scan everyday

Finviz.com can do that, and it is free. I also use Stockfetcher.com. It has a bit of a learning curve, but you can use it for free with limited results. I use the $8/mo. option, which is certainly a reasonable price.

Awesome! @JimJay I know the feeling. I started really studying and investing in my education around the same time, and it's been a struggle, but as long as you keep at it and keep working hard to get better, I'm sure you'll get things turned around. I'm in the same boat, and it sucks at times not being able to hit big solid winners, but you have to trust in yourself that you'll get there eventually.

@davecomb I actually have been following Tim for almost a good year now, but have not committed as much time to studying and watching the market as I currently do now. I think what really helped me was the absurd amount of necessary research I had to put into understanding: terminology, trading patterns, how to recognize trade patterns, controlling my emotions, and understanding when to cut losses. Thankfully I haven't had to cut losses yet, but I've came close.

@JimJay Thank you! I am subscribed to Tim's watchlist, and believe that helps give me direction. I also watch for double bottom reversals, giving me confirmation whether or not to enter a trade.
