Revenge of the Ninja (2010)

Synopsis : Trained since childhood to be a lethal pip-hunter ninja, Mikemoto (starring Big Mike) has since turned his back on bloody scalpers that raised him and now seeks revenge for heartless big-boy murders. Teaming up with Ninja Trader, Mikemoto steadily butchers his draw-down enemies while inching ever closer to reunion with 5% master ninja traders.

My two passions....

I spent some time thinking how can I CREATIVELY post something interesting enough to be consider for this important prize.....and one day I had my "aha" moment in creativity....let combine my two passions to express it.

I am VERY EXCITED for the Soccer World Championship starting tomorrow...the most important sport event worldwide. Here in Argentina the world almost STOPS for a month....it's the only thing we talk about....people don't work, kids do not go to school and even women are glued to TV when our national team plays.

So here are my 2 cents....or 2 balls...hope you fellow traders and soccer fans from around the world enjoy it and wherever u feel the same about this event.....GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR TEAM !!!

On becoming a winning trader.....

What is it that winning traders do that aspiring traders don't??

We all want to be winning traders. Most go through a similar learning experience. It looks easy, at least in hindsight. We learn and test indicators; they seem to work sometimes. Some look at more esoteric and complicated computations that yield too much information to be easily assimilated.

And there's no end of people with their ideas and with their hand out to take your money.

So, what is it that winning traders do?

In the Market Wizards book by Jack Schwager, he interviews Michael Marcus. To the question, “Do you think being a great trader is an innate skill”? Michael says, “I think to be in the upper echelon of successful traders requires an innate skill, a gift. It's just like being a great violinist. But to be a competent trader and make money is a skill you can learn.”

Do you remember Richard Dennis? It was his feeling that people could be taught to trade successfully. So, he selected several people from different backgrounds that had no knowledge of trading. He called them the 'turtles'. He taught them his method, gave them each a funded account, and let them trade. Some, like Curtis Faith, did extremely well. Some went on to manage large accounts and trade for other people. Others did poorly, even with the training they had been given. This is why Big Mike wants you to know that you cannot buy some 'system' that is pumped up to make it look like it will make you $100,000 tomorrow!

You, and you alone have to decide to learn, to study, to read books, ask questions, pour over charts, apply different ideas that you have and come up with your own method that fits your particular personality.

The forum and information freely given by members is a treasure that just was not available until Big Mike decided to create it.

Some of this information may help you directly. But for most, you will have to study and work at learning a method that suits you. Once you find that something, you just have to apply it over and over, and you will make money.

Regards, Ray

I appreciate that posts are readable.
That you don't have to read 50 pages of trash talk just to get to a decent quote.
That NinjaTrader lovers are here.

I've been searching the internet for a long time to find this Good Clean and Great futures.io (formerly BMT) Site.
Big Mike's Day Trading Forum is the end of the search !

futures.io (formerly BMT) is the Forum to be from now on. Long Live futures.io (formerly BMT) ! :-)
