One last shot

So after much thought I've decided to continue trading. The plan is to paper-trade from now until I get back from hunting (though there is a chance I might go to real trading sooner). I will be trading hourly charts, with my father. We did some back testing and it seems I do much better when we're tag-teaming it. If we don't have a profit by the time the new year begins I will be choosing a different career path. If we're at a profit than I will re-evaluate my career plans (trading part-time or continue with full time).
