    I'll start by sharing My Short Story

    My studies of trading began in 1995 when I was learning to read commodities price charts. From 2009 to 2012 I practiced my trading plan, made videos, wrote out my trading plan - eventually created a course and I taught thousands of gamers how to read chart patterns with basic technical analysis.

    In 2015 I discovered cryptos and the mission restarted - with dedication. I wrote out my trading plan and started a regular video journal and forum journal of all of my trades. From 2015 to 2016, my money in bitcoin grew by ten times. From 2016 to 2017, my money in cryptos grew by ten times again, and through 2017 my money incryptos did better than ten times growth.

    This has resulted in me paying more in taxes for 2017 than I earned in some years! Now I'm focused on teaching others what I needed to learn, before I started to have consistent success in trading.

      Hi Doug,

      I'm new to this forum, but not new to cryptos. I dabbled with them a bit in the early 2000s, but largely forgot about them after Mt. Gox - until early last year. There was a lot of talk about Litecoin and Ethereum and I was very interested to find out that there were other cryptocurrencies other than BTC. Little did I know, alts existed even during Mt. Gox years, I just missed it all. I purchased one of your courses and learned a good bit, but I hope to learn yet more here.
      The biggest question I have is how to structure my trades in terms of individual size, as well as whether I should be placing a few top notch trades or diversify into numerous pretty solid positions.
