The hardest thing psychologically so far has been to stay in the market when I am showing a profit. I could close my positions now and be -0.66% for my first month — which would be a good result for a total novice trader. But I know I have to keep going.

Assuming your risk control is good, the way you get carried out of this business is by taking profits too early. The average return on winners has to be a multiple of the average loss on losers in order to make money.
