Tyger,

Thanks for the pep talk. Took a week off, started reading other methods, cc,space. Not in the deck for me right now. Im going to continue to scalp. the "Pro's 20 pips to $Freedom" is really cool. Im going to divert my focus back to that and scalping. Hopefully I can get back on track. Thanks for your words of encouragement. Im done whining now.

1% a day will add a zero to your account in 1 yr .

$100 to $1000 to $10,000 to $100,000 in 3 yrs .

Can you wait 3 yrs . to be free ?

No,
Trading 1:1 is insanity or worse yet risking 1% of your entire account on every trade you take.

Dchappy,

I made a spread sheet on excel, via the "Pro Freedom Plan " and am committing myself to it. Basically 20 pips a day, which is easy for me now, but I suspect I need to start working on the emotions of larger lot size.
So im already on day 3, 48 day one, 32 day two, and 18 thus far today. Just need two more pips to be done for the day. It is exciting, but I have to be careful not to overtrade. Im going to look at every day as a individual session, and forget about what I made or lost in the previous days. I have been trading 3 years and 2.5 were losers....the last 6 months I have finally been able to become small profit with high success rate. So now the challenge will be to stay focused on one method, one plan.
I attached the file if anyone wants to customize it for there use.

(moved the file to page 1 of this thread because Im doing updates on it as I get feedback and or ideas)

Thanks pp2,
Have you been trading long? Good to see some other local (us) traders here.
What is your method of trading?

Hi doji,

4 years observing, studying and live for the last 9 months.

15 min candle HL or LH off major SR play, then I confirm with renko 123 for entry for whatever I can get, normally 10 TP.

I'm confident with what I see on the charts 'for my method', though overall I have mixed results probably due with my MM and discipline (ME :)), something personal I must overcome.

Soldiering on still.

It'll be cool to see how you've been doing via charts regularly :)
