Within the next week, I will be going overseas for about 2 months. I have set it up to where I have internet connection over there.
Currently, I am on a hot pursuit quest to a quarter million dollars. It is very simple. I am starting with $10,000...I closed the account summary box on Oanda so I cannot see how much money or equity I have in my account. This way, money does not blind me.
I have setup a 20 step journal written out by hand. All I have to do is complete each step one by one, and when I finish the 20th step, I will have made nearly $300,000 from $10k.
Each step has a requirement of 50 pips at a predetermined LOT SIZE level which I have written out on every page. I will refrain from ever taking a look at my account balance and keep my focus on getting 50 pips to complete each step. I do not necessarily have to complete a step in a day, although that would be considered a great day.
See you all on the other side...
Are you saying you already doubled your $5,000 you re-started with? I am
good but not that damn good. You keep going for it. Once you hit a 6
figure account the world is your oyster.
Haha, the market acted exactly as my observations expected to start the week so doubling that $5,000 was needless to say...easy.
I did say I was going to $15,000...but there was no real reason behind that. And now doing the step system that I am doing, I took 2 very important mind boggling variables out of my trading. One is time, the other is money.
So now the only stress I have is making 50 pips to advance to the next step. Until I hit the big 20, I say *censored - swear word* time, and *censored - swear word* money...b/c I'm not looking at either of them. All that matters is finishing the step that I am on.
