Hi Everyone, my name is Kyle. I've been day trading for a year now. I've been wanting to join the community for a while and am now happy that I did.
Hope this doesn't discourage anyone who is just starting out. I've had a pretty rough time as a trader so far. Lots of inconsistency and losses over the past year. I guess you could say the only thing I am consistent at is losing. I know it's all a part of the learning process (I try to look at it as paying tuition), and I'm trying my best to be patient and to maintain a long-term perspective. The last five weeks have been particularly difficult though. I've literally had one green day. To say the least, it was quite demoralizing when I finally convinced myself to go back to the sim.
I've been in other chatrooms and never really felt a sense of community or genuine mentorship. I guess that's what drew me here. Anyway, hope I didn't discourage anyone. I'm sticking with it and am looking forward to connecting with some of you guys here at BBT.
