  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.

have to wait a few days before I can "thank you" for this post (hint)

LOL.

But, to clarify --- only posts written during the contest are counted. So a post written 1 day, 1 week, 1 year before the contest are not included -- even if it receives 'thanks' during the contest period.

This is done to make everything as level playing field as possible. Even users who have never posted before are on equal footing with users with thousands of posts.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Mike,

Thanks for the opportunity to be thanked.

My pleasure. Any idea what book you are going to pick? Whatever it is, you'll need to come back after you've read it and give us your review!

I'm also real curious which book @Fat Tails will pick. I am not certain Amazon has anything he hasn't already read!

Thank you all

Mike,

I would like to thank you for giving this forum the opportunity to exchange know-how and ideas in a very friendly atmosphere. The main thanks should really go to all who participated in this contest, as the winners and prizes were never the object, but ability to help fellow traders in a journey that has many crests and slopes towards a profitable target.

Many thanks to all who found the time to also cast their vote and appreciation.

Perryg

THX to everybody

Mike,

Thank you for the "Thank You" and for keeping this forum such a good and unique place.

Robert Miner - "High Probability Trading Strategies" is my choice. He uses elements similar to what I am using. This could be a view from a slightly different angle.

Its a pleasure to contribute here and to give thanks . Please donate my prize to this worthy cause if you would Mike -
Seattle Fisherman's Memorial


This memorial symbolizes commercial fisherman who went to sea and never returned . Their board supports programs for grief counselling , boaters safety and drug treatment/intervention . The families left behind by these fishermen bear a great burden and I can relate to them as I have also lost friends who've drowned or disappeared at sea . I encourage everyone to please dig deep and give , especially during the holiday season , to their favorite cause . "Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process" - Jim Rohn .

@Big Mike: Thank you again for the energy and work you put into this forum. For me it is an invaluable tool of communication, and I really do not mind, if there is a little bit of fun involved as well.


As you are curious, which book I will pick, I owe you an answer. I first thought about the book of Suri Duddella, because I have never read it.
But then, my library of trading books is large enough, and I would just get redundant information.


So I will settle for something, which I can slowly grind. This is the book that I have selected:

Stephen J.Taylor: Asset Price Dynamics, Volatility, and Prediction


I will see whether I can return some of its contents to the forum at a later stage.
