An autographed copy of my lastest and as yet unwritten book:

"How I made a million dollars in CL -
start with $3 million and don't trade too often."

- just kidding.
The prize is different for each participant.

Why not join in Joe - you'll beat the pants off us I'm sure!

The contest is open to anyone.

Mostly for those making occasional swing trades. If your style is scapling for a quick 20cents then that would be better in a separate thread, I think. This doesn't mean you can't bail on a trade quickly though - these things happen. No hard and fast limits on trades per week - but I'm visualizing the maximum round turns at about 15 or so per week.


Hey aquarian, this sounds like fun. When are you guys planning to start? I'll try to swing like your style rather than scalping with my sim account. If it works out well, i'll do it live. =)

I had the chance to peek at the market yesterday and oh boy, that was a fun trip down. Too bad i was away from my desktop.

Ok Joe you're in!!! (new guys start on the first trading day of each week)

You get $71,000

You can become ambidextrous and have both swing and scalp in your skill set!!

I'm dying to see if a scalper can teach the swingers a trick or two!

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

So you might wonder - well if he thought it would get to 89.51 why didn't he buy?
Too tired this morning - its been a real slog - not much of an answer but I'm wondering why I didn't buy myself then I can sell two.

According to NT it's been as high as 89.33 and it doesn't look done yet.
(I'm even wondering about moving it further away.)

From the 87.73 that's a pretty healthy move.
I should have Joe entry and I do the exit! haha..
