If your net plus is from your original money then you are ahead of me! I started about 25 yrs ago & have blown thru a few 5000 accts until the last several yrs when I switched online brokers which gave me software that was light years ahead of my old acct. I also switched to daytrading & that changed everything for me for the better. I believe that if I would have changed sooner I would be further down the road of success. My next move is to trade two contracts as I have finally learned to trade one quite well.
