I have been studying options for a good 3 years now. I have paid for intuition, back traded, paid for more intuition and also have what I believe to be a fairly solid software at my disposal (Market Analyst, Option Vue).
I started a small account last year and had ended up 25% down. I pulled the money out and continued to study, with a house on the market i thought, I will load up with the profits from the house.
Any way, 7 months has gone by and im 70% down. Yes, ive had bigger than 1% positions, yes I have just had wrong stratergies in hindsight, yes i certainly concider myself a novice but I am doing something really wrong here.
One of the biggest problems I have in my view, is the lack of network of like minded people. Every loss i make, I am left there scratching my head and no one else really to give me there opinion, atleast not someone who is actually making money.
The guy I done my course with also runs a weekly webinar, but, the penny just dropped, he never shows if he is actually trading or how he's trades are going. I am not accusing him off anything, and if I were to, I would simply think, its not transparent enough.
On the weekly webinars you can't actually chat with other people, so I'm here hoping I can find crew that trade options and are either in the same boat, or much better and would take the time to get to know where I'm at regarding my skills etc.
I am a damn hard worker, ask my partner. I spend countless hours in front of that computer doing TA, I'm not unrealistic either, i actually have in my head that it would take around 5 years before i was really good.
Althogh im going through a traders pit at the moment, I still have a decent chunk of capital left to begin to turn things around. I believe in this, or still want to anyway.
So if i sound like you, or what you used to be than please find the time to help me out.
Maybe your looking for a spring chicken to mentor, maybe you just like helping people. I've run out of options and I would be greatly appreciative of your time.
