The RO Report

Umm... completely ridiculous. The RO is making too much money and I can't take it. I finished the day flat. I just couldn't get it together.

But when you see numbers like this, it gives you an idea of what kind of potential is out there right now.

Out of 26 traders, 23 were positive, or 88%. I was number 22 of 26 today, so yeah, I was just positive. Still, I won't be celebrating with good music, because I can only look at my performance today as failure. It was a good day and I should have made good money, especially after my confidence building day yesterday.

Here's the top 3:

1. $38,879
2. $23,987
3. $18,557

And the bottom:

1. -$4865
2. -$1941
3. -$137

Also, 6 traders finished up over $10gs each, and 14 finished up over $1000. Crazy.

It sucks not making the big bucks and seeing all these other guys rake in the dough. Our time will come DT. At least we aren't losing, right.

How much do the top guys make a year?
What is their trading style?

This is true. One of the cardinal rules of trading is that "things can always get worse."


They try and catch sector moves. When successful, they make a lot of money.
