I'm pretty new here. Found this site this year and it peaked my interest. I've been following news and exploring this site when I get the chance. In July I opened an account with a broker and I've been hooked every since. I still trade only when I get the chance or when I feel comfortable with my decisions, but I'm up 40% and only anxious to learn more about this leveraged trading thing. I'm sure I'll have down times. I'm sure I have lots to learn. But as far as making 15 - 20% a month, heck, even a newbie can do it. Good luck to you all.
