Good afternoon all,
I would just like to introduce myself today and give a little background. My name is Daniel McCormack and I am a fairly new trader and joined BBT less than a year ago. I traded a few years prior to joining, but thought I would give day trading a go. I bought Andrews book How to Day Trade for a Living. Enjoyed the book and continued my learning process. I then joined BBT and listened to most of the courses offered here on BBT and believed that I can do this. However, I did think that I was able to skip some of the steps laid out in the courses, most specifically paper trading. This is where my trading career took a sudden halt. I thought I had good risk management skill and the psychology to do the right thing when I get into a loosing trade, but within 2 months of trying to actively trade I blew my account up and nearly gave up completely. After a 6 month hiatus I have decided to continue with my trading career, but this time do the right thing. I have created a business plan for myself and will be starting my paper trading in November. I also thing that if I become more involved in this community that I will have a more enjoyable experience this go around. I look forward to meeting you all and
Thanks for listening.
