Hello everyone. I am a current Millionaire Challenge Student and I'm approaching my 1 year anniversary since discovering Timothy Sykes and deciding to start a new career in day trading. I am treating this as if I am going to business school. My expectations are that I can learn, be self sufficient and profitable within 3 years. Here is a timeline of my first year: June 2016 - Discovered Tim Sykes - Joined Profit.ly July 2016 - Bought and studied How to Make Millions - Signed on as Silver Subscriber and Tim Alerts - Tested different screeners and software: Stocks to Trade, Equity Feed, DAS Trader. STT was the only one I kept. July - Sept 2016 - Watched two years of Tim's video lesson library, starting from most recent and working my way backward - Practice reading charts, making watchlists and trade plans - Review and analyze how trade plans worked out Sept - Oct 2016 - Watched Tim's DVDs: - Trader Checklist - Pennystocking - Pennystocking Part Deux - Pennystocking Framework - Timline - Tim Fundamentals Part Deux - Learn Level 2 - Continued reading charts, making watchlists and trade plans - Continued to review and analyze how trade plans worked out - Continued watching new video lessons Nov - Dec 2016 - Joined Tim Challenge in Nov - Watched more DVDs: - Trading Tickers - TimRaw - Spikeability - TIMdicators - Shortstocking - Tim Tactics - School Trader - Purchased and watched Investors Underground DVDs: - Textbook Trading - Tandem Trader - Continued reading charts, making watchlists and trade plans - Continued to review and analyze how trade plans worked out - Continued watching new video lessons, now including Mark Croock - Joining webinars by Tim, Mark Croock, Michael Goode, Tim Grittani and Tim Bohen Jan - Apr 2017 - Signed up with Interactive Brokers - Simulated trading with $30k account - Lost initially down as far as -$3000 to being up +$6000... a +$9000 turn around from Mar-Apr! - Decided to start live trading - Continued reading charts, making watchlists and trade plans - Continued to review and analyze how trade plans worked out - Started logging my trades and saving charts - Started making spreadsheets for different patterns and creating stats - Continued watching new video lessons - Continued joining webinars and watching archived ones - Start analyzing Profit.ly trades by the Gurus as well as Dux and others Apr - June 2017 - Began Live Trading (in April) - As expected, started out negative, with small losses. Recently break even. - Watched more DVDs: - New Rules of Pennystocking - Started Read SEC Filings - Continued reading charts, making watchlists and trade plans - Continued to review and analyze how trade plans worked out - Continued logging my trades and saving charts - Continued making spreadsheets and stats - Continued watching new video lessons - Continued joining webinars and watching archived ones - Continued analyzing other traders Profit.ly trades As you can see, there is a lot of time and work that I have and still continue to put into this... I estimate easily a thousand hours or more this year. And I have loved every minute of it! Even though I have a long way to go... looking back, I have also come a long way.

This I can identify with, concerned about not keeping up. This year is about study. Thanks for sharing CJ _Viper. #feelingreleived#
