    Sir Steevus Maximus here...I also have no idea what the hell is going on...and its scary. On the bright side, made a 4% return trading RAD last week...should have stayed around the past couple days though for 10% more. The $70 gain justified my GTA5 purchase. :D

    The island looks uninhabited! Looks like fun, especially with a girl by your side. It seems like with every profession, most of what's been learned in college can't be used practically...maybe 20% of it is useful. I agree with you on statistics; it's an entirely different mathematics that...

At least give us a 1-10 scale of what she looked like. ;) Do you have any pictures of the "tropical island" itself? The last nice island I went to was Tangalooma; that was 10 yrs ago :( I just finished reading...

    Hello from Houston

    I found this website via reddit; I've had this webpage open for at least a week now on my Chrome browser, but finally took the time to read around on the forums tonight. This concept of keeping a trading journal is exactly what I decided to do during last Christmas vacation. I created...
