So I've been studying day trading (initally forex (spread betting), but now futures) 60 hours a week for about a year now, while getting mentored by a pro full time. Was a mid/high stakes poker pro for 5 years prior. Barely played any poker in the last 12 months.
Finally started getting consistent daily results on demo about 6 weeks ago, and assuming that continues for the rest of this month (pretty sure it will) my intention is to trade futures live for the first time on 27th June, starting at 1 contract ($12.50/pip).
My goal is to turn my 8K investment into 250K in 60 trading days, risking less than 2% per trade with a minimum goal of 30 pips per day (but really aiming for 80).
If there is any interest here of a journal then I'd happily do one
