Track Record from 1/1/12012 -7/12/2012 - Up 10.17%

I'm trading on $65,000. My account now has $69,337. Profit of $4,337. Up 6.67%. I also usually hold bond and t note positions that yield another 7% annually. So hypothetically I would be up about 10.17 or on pace to hit 20.34% annually.

I'm going to stop here and add more money to my account. I'm going to now trade on $100,000.
