Taking Jesse Livermore Advice

Taking Jesse Livermore Advice

Jesse Livermore said, “the only safe money is money you take out of your trading account.” I decided to take the rest of the Summer off from trading and requested a check from TopStep Trader today. I have roughly $799 and change in my funded trading account.

I don’t feel comfortable with this trading balance against the zero line; instead of, worrying about it. I decided to take the money off the table and around the middle of August start again.

Yes, I am aware I would have to go back into the Combine. But, I might also simply open a $5,000 futures account and stop using TST altogether. I have proven that I can trade here. It might be time to move on.

Regardless, TST has been an eye opening experience. I have been at this diligently for 2 years now, and it is time to take the money and reevaluate what I want to do next.


Good Trading,

P.S. I am taking my boys to camp for a few days … to relax and recooperate from the first half of the trading year.

P.S.S. I will have more to say after I receive and cash my check from TopStep Trader (TST). Right now, I want to prove it is a legitimate opportunity to trade and get paid.
