His last posts he said he was having success with cjbooth's method. Then he was integrating it with Perry's method and some of what he learned so he came up with his own system. It sounded like a change from what he was doing before i.e. the title of his thread. He came up with his own variation this time which was individually constructive. Although it has been more than a few weeks since he said he would be back to tell us how his new hybrid worked out...

Sometimes newly successful traders disappear and clear out of all forums i.e. they become too busy making money from their newfound golden goose.

I may have missed it, but I saw no evidence of him being successful with either method. The whole point being was that he had no idea how to measure success, so was quite happy to describe five winning trades as 'now successful'

So, as far as I can tell, he took two methods he had not been successful with, and rather than become successful with one of them, decided to combine both. The basis for the new method being successful is therefore really rather random. So, he decided to jump straight from unsuccessful trader to teaching guru, and bypass the part where you make money consistently.

You're right that traders sometimes disappear when successful, but do you really think bobby wouldn't be posting all over here if he was now actually making money.

Maybe I'm doing him a disservice, but we don't know do we....
