The Death Of Tradestation

The Death Of Tradestation

I have been day trading eminis for almost 10 years now and with the recent questions I have been getting I wonder if people really know my actual age or when I actually started day trading.  I have seen an enormous shift in this industry with one day trading company spawning various methods and strategies, both good and bad.

May 4th Recap: Bundas & 20 Points ($10,000 Available)

Winner of the $10,000 Training Program

It has been two weeks into this and I would like to thank everyone that entered the contest kindly for keeping me busy.  Everyone did just as I asked which disappointed me a bit to be honest.  I thought that since I show my personality via The Day Trading Academy and I wanted to see the personality of others as well.
