Joel - Don't know you as I've only been in TZA for 3 days. Made some money but not as much as I could have. I can appreciate your money loss as I too lost half of my account mostly through last August trading. Seemed like everything I tried failed miserably and I can truly say it was disheartening. I've managed to come back 3K of my loss in August and am going to go back to the basics - those things that made me successful before. I lost touch with them and drifted into a disastrous trading period. Won't ever do that again. I'm moving on now to the next trade and wish you the very best of luck. If stock trading was easy, we'd all be millionaires.
