How old are you, "..." bro?
I've been trading since 1966 when I was a teenager calling Merrill-Lynch from the hallway in my high school doing over-the-counter options trades when Thomas, Haabt and Botts was a market-maker and they ran little 3" one-column ads in the WSJ listing option inventory they wanted to move.
I was a CTA in the early '80s with more than $25 million under management. I've made (and lost) a ton of money, most of it probably before you were born. Now, what was it that you think is so important?

My respect to you, ...! I really appreciate your story.
That's what I thought... Young guys take the hardest trades at the beginning. Then we learn risk/reward stuff.... At the end we do only easy trades.
Huh... I'm 44, and I'm in the middle. I don't see easy trades yet, but I do little agressive mistakes, much less than at the beginning. I hope I learn how to trade clear-cuts later....
