Thanks for the counsel. So far the trading has been fairly consistent. but nothing to write home about. At least, I avoided the minor pullback in the market. overall, investment gains were about $20K in the last month (vs. losses in the market if I were fully invested). Not a big deal but better than a sharp stick in the eye.

I am just looking for $1K a day.. some days, I pull in $5k, others I lose $5k but have more winners than losers.

I do appreciate the "why even bother" aspect of this.. which is a very valid point. I am just going through a little bit of income withdrawal.

Oh well, its just 1 month in!

Sounds like the discussion needs to move over to the forum created exclusively for this topic: Stock Picking and Market Strategy

If you start a new thread there you'll have a great place to update us on your continuing successes.
