I just updated all of my trades from October 10th through today. Needless to say the reality check has been an eye opener! I am down to $231 profits. I was up last time to $4k. The change in October literally killed me and it took me two months to make it up. I am not giving up though. Thanks to Timothy Sykes @timothysykes for the few big winners that helped balance my losses. If it wasn't for Tim I would've been under. I've traded 222 trades - that was a huge reality check. I need to STOP that but the lessons that I have learned have been invaluable. You can't put a price on it! I think one of the lessons or one of the changes I am going to make come Monday is uploading my trades daily. I think it is so important because it will keep me on my toes. I look forward to studying this weekend like a madwoman. Did I say that I love trading! I am so passionate about it. I can't wait to have 10 years under my belt.

I procrastinate on uploading my trades too, mainly because I don't want to face up to the reality of losses, but I think your right, doing it daily makes a difference!

Updated all of my trades from 10/01 to today. Im trying to get into the habit of doing it every two weeks. Eye Opening, let me tell you. What a reality check. I'm still up but not by much. I've realized after importing all of my trades (pure transparency) that I need to follow rules. I need to not panic. I need to be patient and I need to study more but I LOVE TRADING! I can't wait to have 10 years under my belt to see how far I've come. Thank you @timothysykes for all of your valuable lessons. You truly do care for us and I appreciate that so much!

I'm not sure where my post went.... to Internet Heaven LOL. Being that I'm taking a couple of hours break to study and not trade today, I took the time to download all of my transactions from the 3 platforms I am currently using. Eye opening and so glad I did it!

Hi Jessica. I use TD Ameritrade for all of my Long Positions whether Im shorting or buying. I use IB for quick in/out daily trades and I use ST if I can't find shares to short on IB. I also have an account funded with CP "Tim's high net worth broker but my platform there has not been set up yet.

Being that there's not much movement today, I took the time to import all of my trades for the last two weeks. Definitely eye opening and I am so happy I did it!
