I'd like to once again thank Al Brooks for his time today on an excellent webinar, and I know you guys really appreciate him staying so long and answering all of your questions.

The ten quiz questions were a lot of fun, I'm sorry it ended up being where most of you guys were just randomly pressing letters and cheating, but I will share the quiz questions and answers later when I post the recording so you can benefit from it. Al spent a lot of time creating the questions so I'm sure he would appreciate you reviewing them.

Many of you also requested Al's powerpoint, I will try and get that and post it as well.

Congratulations to the winners: @Rusty, @cstirone, @KyHermit, @kenjelli, @KiwiTrader38, @BCNTrader, @Boomerang, @jamjar, @1upTrader, @gxu66! I will be contacting you privately in the next couple of days to coordinate with you as for which book you want, and where to ship it.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike

Thanks futures.io (formerly BMT)!

The cool thing is that I tried to figure out the correct answer on the first questions until I got tired to see that people was just posting a "random" answer. This was the only time that I answered a quiz question! so I had a 100% win ratio I planned to post "A" before the question come up, I promise that I will check why it was the correct answer. I took profit from that but I think that you must avoid "choice" answers in the next quiz.

But the most important for me is that, from all prizes, the Al Brooks book is the prize that I wanted, ok, the NT license is cool and Suri book too but this was my target because I don't have the book "Reading Price Charts Bar by Bar", a friend lend it to me and I thought to wait until the webinar ends to buy it because I really enjoy reading it (and I thought that I'll never win it with 500 people in there). In any case I will have to pay the shipping to Spain

Again, Big thanks Big Mike and thank you very much Al Brooks.

FWIW, not everyone who won a book cheated. I was naive enough to actually do the math before answering and it paid off. Yipee!

Thanks for setting up all these great webinars, Mike! Much appreciated.

And about the book lottery at the end of the webinar.. I tend to look at what happened not as cheating, but as a group of traders that found an edge and exploited it!

That said, I will be going through the questions again and actually doing the work.

I tried it but it was impossible, think about it... I pushed "Enter" (had already typed the A) at the very first time I saw the 6th question pop on my screen and I wasn't the first person to answer correctly, so I was in the sixth position of the correct answers even without having the time to read the question. As far as I know, at least from the 1st to the 6th (correct answers) were cheaters Can be the lag? maybe the service is not "real-time" and I had a delay because while reading the 3rd question Big Mike already said "stop posting". I'm in Spain but I know I have a ping of 160ms to a server in Chicago, IL and 125ms to Washington, DC (pingtest.net). I have just 24ms from Barcelona to Madrid.

Note: 1000ms = 1 sec
134 milliseconds — time taken by light to travel around the Earth's equator -- Wikipedia

I just joined this site a few days ago. I must say you have done an impressive job for only being 2 years old. Best wishes to everyone for the next two years. Hopefully by then ill be off of paper and onto the real thing again.
