Before starting the last quarter of 2013 with a new trade idea, I took a quick walk down memory lane and reviewed my trades for the past three months. Without further ado, here are the numbers!

I’m not gonna lie… My heart is breaking because of these dismal trade numbers. While I was able to end Q2 2013 with a small gain on my account, my losses in the past three months set me back by a huge amount.
With that, I plan to take a few days off to review my recent trades a little more. I want to be able to figure out what I’m doing wrong and what I can improve on.
