So technically being $35 away from $50k isn’t actually hitting the $50k target. Even if I had the funds in my wallet or account. Little joke from my buddy FutureMeDead. So this time well start it again. Something about setting targets and actually hitting them makes me feel much more accomplished. So with that being said today starts the challenge again.
Would it be made public trade for trade you ask? No, but I will gladly post either end of day results of account value.
Below will be updated Daily… So stay tuned!

Am I reading this right? Yes you are.
This isn’t possible?! Some things in life may seem impossible but if you focus and put your mind to it, it is possible!
To validate this accomplishment this was an open document to follow at the time and people who have followed turned small amounts into large amounts as well. Just ask the 4,000 followers of this document who viewed.
Being one of the first option Traders(as far as I know) to start with this specific small amount ($150) and turn it into $46,974 within 2 weeks. Was it easy? No, but I knew it was possible.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE: (ITS A MENTAL THING)
Ive noticed that when I do these challenges there are account value peaks. Or in other words Market Value resistance. Once I got to $2k getting to $5k took about 2-3 days. But once I touched $5k it became a mental imprint that I cannot lose more than 10% from here so size had to be managed accordingly. Going from $5k to $10k was the easy part. Doubling that amount to start with isn’t as easy just mentally through challenge for some reason it was. Then theres the 15k resistance this one came in about 1-2days and then I hang there and back to 10-12k I go. Its a mental process because here I go all cash scared to drop below $10k. Then I sit back analyze everything then go back in. Once I got back to $15k then it was $17k after that $20-$22k comes quick. Its like support and resistance(the most important thing to learn about when you start trading) you go through ups and downs before breaking highs of your account.
