buck, when are you switcing to daily charts?  i think that is the best timeframe if you can handle to possible big swings.  right now i still trade mainly off the 4hrs, sometimes the daily, i even check the weekly to make sure im not near a weekly resistance/support level!

Sorry for taking so long to reply Pop on nights again this coming week so i keep the same schedule....im looking to make a switch to dailys when i can devote more time....i look over just about every chart b4 i enter my trades now just found the crosses on the 4hr to be easiest for me to trade with the time and money i could invest.....i have the money now just not the right time....i been saying for months i want to trade for a living and i think i can do it...

Ive had to do a few things and have spent a nice chunk of money having some work done to the house so im going to keep working right now and try to build the account big enough to withstand anything the market can throw at me and the dailys offer bigger rewards with more risk of course...ive said several times i cant trade using stops and i dont plan on trying it...ever..so i want to have all my ducks in a row b4 i walk away from my job and put my family in a tough spot

no prob!  yeah makes sense to me
 
i would say about 100k also.. right now im trying to build up the account shooting for 10% return per month.  with 100k that would be 10k/month and enough for me to feel comfortable leaving my job.
 
one thing i've learned is that this is no get rich quick game...you really need to put the time and effort into it and i would say it takes years to become a good trader (ive been doing it now for about one year and i feel like i am just now starting to get a nice grip on things)

You can do really well if you can put in the time....i just dont have it right now...im looking to be able to squeak out three trades a week the way i trade now..or make the switch to dailys and get in one maybe two trades per week...looks as though i should be able to go for 50 pips per trade off dailys and when everything lines up right in the charts and im watching ,maybe even more

I will be taking the rest of my vacation time in December for a practice run....if i can be up to watch the market from 7am-11am i think i can get a trade per day off the 4hr charts....seems to be one good cross per day at that time...i really just want to go for it now but its not about me anymore[kids]...so ill wait and when i feel i got a big enough roll ITS ON
