BIG MIKE TRADING 1-YEAR ANNIVERSARY




THIS THREAD WILL BE FOR THE PRIZE "A LIFETIME LICENSE TO NINJATRADER TRADING PLATFORM." WE WILL BE GIVING AWAY ONE OF THESE IN TOTAL.

As mentioned in the main thread here, our 1-year anniversary is this June and to celebrate we are giving away over $4,000 worth of prizes!

futures.io (formerly BMT) owes its success in large part to you. Over the past year, you guys have contributed great content to the site... and in that spirit, we are going to ask you contribute just a little bit more in order to win this prize!

To enter the drawing, simply post a reply to this thread. Important: your reply needs to be creative! Don't just reply with something plain or basic. There is no particular topic that we are going to specify for you, but the prizes will be awarded based on the creativity of your reply to this thread. In other words, the better your reply is, the more likely it will be selected as the winner. Please don't ask for guidance, we are leaving this up to your judgment and asking you to be creative!



Eligibility and rules:

- You must be a registered member (it's free, it just means you've signed up and created a username on our site).

- Both new and existing NinjaTrader customers are eligible. NinjaTrader will not refund any payments you have already made, however if you are an existing customer you can upgrade your current license to a lifetime license for free through this prize, or you can receive a second lifetime license in addition to the one you already have.

- You may enter only once per prize/thread (once for this exact prize). You can enter to win the other prizes in the other threads as well, but you can only win the exact same prize once. It is possible that you win more than one different prize from more than one thread.

- There will be no substitutions of prizes. If you do not wish to accept the prize, it will be forfeit. The license is non-transferable.

- The moderating staff at futures.io (formerly BMT) will select the winners. Again, the winners will be selected based on the creativity of the reply. In the event of a tie, Big Mike will make the final decision. Big Mike has the final say over the outcome of the drawing and the awarding of all prizes.

YOUR ENTRY (REPLY) MUST BE RECEIVED BY JUNE 25TH 2010.
WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS BETWEEN JUNE 26TH AND JUNE 30TH.

Thx and good luck!
Mike

First guy in wins? Hey, I know better. And yes, I know this is not going to win the creativity award but 2 points to contribute: 1. futures.io (formerly BMT) is a great site, full of helpful folks willing to answer questions across a very wide array of topics (from totally beginner, never traded and don't really even know the terminology to relatively advanced data feed questions, broker comparisons, etc.) And for this, I am grateful. 2. There is so much to learn from watching price. So much effort goes into finding indicator combos or tweaking existing indicators to find the perfect trade setup. What I often want to suggest is the following: take a month, remove all the indicators from your chart and simply observe your market of choice. Only 1 market and only 1 chart, sans indicators. At the end of that one one month, my premise is that you will be much farther down the road to your trading objectives than had you spent that time tweaking indicators or reading forum posts about a setup that someone else is using. Thanks for a great site.

Big Mike's big debut at NYSE


Big Mike’s Day Trading Forum (NYSE code: futures.io (formerly BMT)) makes a startling debut at NYSE. The stock listed at $28.55 against its maiden offer price of $10 has seen frantic buy orders since then. Big Mike, the man behind the show thanked all the members of futures.io (formerly BMT) for the successful listing.

Market speculation is ripe with rumors that Gordon Gekko, who has just been released from prison for charges of insider trading, has been a major buyer of the futures.io (formerly BMT) stock. Spokesperson of an alerted market regulators, StockWatch said “they are keeping an eye on things and no acts of greed will be tolerated”.

futures.io (formerly BMT) a garage start-up, typical of any internet companies has grown leaps and bounds in just a year of its existence with a membership base of more than 5K active users. With its unique free-donation/elite economic model, futures.io (formerly BMT) has break-even in the first year itself, unlike its peer who takes years to even generate its first dime. Several heads of states from Afghanistan, North Korea to Venezuela has shown keen interest in this economic model of futures.io (formerly BMT)’s and is actively seeking the co-operation of Big Mike so that they could emulate this economic model in their countries too.

Unlike other forums which have turned into garbage dumps of chit-chats, jokes and personal assassinations, futures.io (formerly BMT) has maintained its purity, thanks to its band of active moderators. futures.io (formerly BMT) has been a nirvana for thousands armature and pro programmers/system developers. Raymond Deux, founder of NinjaTrader LLC congratulated Big Mike and the member of the futures.io (formerly BMT) forum on this occasion and said “futures.io (formerly BMT) has played a big part in educating the trading community and has been a key partner of NinjaTrader”. It is to be noted that futures.io (formerly BMT) forum has been a major source of the “non-supported stuff” of NinjaTrader.

THIS PRIZE IS WORTH ALOT!!!

There was a dude named Big Mike.
He ran a forum on trading,
that everyone seemed to like.
He often talked about keeping a journal,
as if you followed his advice, it could be considered market raiding,
and if not your account might as well go down the urinal.

Soon his forum marks the anniversary of one year.
Time flies, as in fifth gear.
As that time gets near,
think its time we all offered him a beer.

Here is to Big Mike in year too,
and for those of you who,
do not keep a journal, boo on you.

So to draw this saga to a close,
hopefully will not be beat for a ninja license by a nose.

Consists of long hours of keen observation of the market. Keep it simple, keep it clean, gain experience and confidence over time. You start by watching the chart. Take notes. Name repeated patterns. Get familiar with them. When you can see them quickly and know their names then start trading them.
Range charts are unique. Very few traders use them. Very few traders make money. Very few traders focus on price, the tape, volume. Small consistent wins make you money. Once in a while you get a big winner. Whoopee.
Trade the trend, fade the trend, trade a sideways range, scalp it. Whatever fits you and makes you comfortable is what is right for you. Find a strategy you can trade or create one of your own.
Read, read, study, study, practice, practice. Concentrate on your strategy and when you are ready (after thorough testing) stop looking for anything else, stop buying stuff, stop attending seminars, stop reading forum threads, stop all interference and distractions and start to trade. Trade for money. Trade as a businessman. Trade for yourself. Consistency is more important than anything. It all starts with becoming consistent. You can fix consistent (wrong) actions. It is almost impossible to fix erratic behavior.
Eventually, you will have to fly on your own, or crash and burn. Trading is not for everyone.
If you find out that it is not for you, that is great. It is no reflection on you or your life. It is not personal, you did not fail. It is OK to just stop. You may not be wired for this. So, find something else you are good at and/or pursue other avenues of investment.

Because, like "Beta Tester Kitteh", more people here seem to be NT users. Maybe Beta Tester Kitteh needs to post over there as well

Elliot Wave, WA 22305

Press Release

Contact: Big Mike
Phone: (726) 232-7622

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

9 A.M. EDT, May 30th 2010

Historic Treaty Signed

Elliot Wave, WA, May 30, 2010:

Today, officials from the Global Retail Traders Alliance, Big Mikes Day Trading Forum (BMDTF) and the Wall Street consortium, Stop Runners International, led by Goldman Sachs signed the Indicator Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal from the indicator industrial complex, officials from the GRTA and BMDTF expressed immense relief that a decade of behind the scenes work had finally paid off.

The purpose of the treaty is to end the decades long practice of the Wall Street funded Stop Runners International of designing, marketing and convincing global retail traders of the effectiveness of indicators. Officials have long suspected large industrial trading firms were behind the design and marketing of these so-called indicators. Unbeknownst to the retail user, any time a trader loaded one of these “indicators” on their chart, the large trading firms would know about it from secret instructions known as CAD or "Certain Account Destruction" hidden in the code. This would prompt the large trading firms to take the opposite side of the trade and run the retail traders stops. This has contributed to the demise of many retail traders.

The indicator industrial complex is a large and often shadowy web of coders, marketing companies and “educational” firms all funded by Stop Runners International. Many times these firms have no knowledge of others in the web of deceit. This is what makes the entire conspiracy so hard to believe. Yet officials from GTRA and BMDTF have been fighting the good fight for many years and finally have victory in sight.

Officials also said we must continue to be vigilant lest these insidious indicators make their way back into the retail trader’s tool box by some other nefarious means.

Traders and their families wishing to join in the fight should become an elite member at www.bigmiketrading.com and join in the discussion thread entitled “The Elusive Price Action and How to Trade It".

Global Retail Traders Alliance is a loose network of individual traders from around the world dedicated to profitability and the fight against the large trading firms that seem to always know where their stops are.

Big Mikes Day Trading Forum is a place where traders come to learn from their peers, chronicle their trading journey from indicators to the promised land of indicator free charts and to listen to the sage advice of its founder, Big Mike. Big Mike has been a fierce proponent and promoter of naked charts for quite some time and refuses to reveal his stop placement to the enemy.

I have learn grasp pebble from hand
I have learn control emotions, fears, battle excitement
Oh Grand Master, NINJA help me

I wake when sun rises
Mauled by tiger hiding in bush
Giant tiger stealthy, great speed and dictates Futures.
Oh greatness, NINJA help me

With my Katana I cutthrough dense jungle of data
But dulls over time and costs
Keeping sharp and acting instantly
I fall short

Show me Grand NINJA
Show me for life

With my companion Mirus and ZenFire,
PriceAction guiding my every moves,
I will defeat Great Tiger (or at least make my 2 point goal for the day)
and bank the NINJA ways onto victory!

Oh Grand Master (Big Mike)
Grant me the ways of the Grand NINJA for life

well - this is a second respond and the second entry to win something - if you dont keep going you can never win - in trading i found that going with second best information gets second best results - going with first rate usually gets first rate results or at least gives you a chance to get great results. futures.io (formerly BMT) is a first rate site and i have seen and read many others - everything is ...... need to enter more contests so lets continue on .....

People search far and wide for the Holy Grail. I am going to give it to you.

About 2500 years ago, there lived some gentlemen named Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. These three were members of a society that gave us many of the tenets we still abide by today. The Greeks would have weekly forums where they would discuss everything from capital punishment to luck. I think we can all agree that these were smart people.

The Greeks believed the the center of the earth was at Delphi. This was the birthplace of Apollo and it was also where the Oracle was housed. People from all over the land would come to Delphi to seek the advice of the Oracle. At the entrance to Delphi, there was an archway and there were two saying engraved in the marble. Stop and think about that for a moment. The Greeks had scrolls and scrolls of philosophy, rules, engineering etc, yet at the center of their earth, they chose only two short sayings for all to read upon entering Delphi.

The first said; Everything in moderation.

The second and the answer to your question and the reason I should win the Ninja subscription is...

You've got a great forum here and I'm really glad I stumbled upon it.

Consider this my offical entry into the Ninja Trader sweepstakes. Like most, I'm an "aspiring" trader, constantly trying to improve my game and in the process, make a little money - after all, you gotta keep score. And like most, I've had my ups and downs. At any rate, the attached graphic summarizes my journey and why I think a lifetime subscription to Nija Trader would fit my hand like a glove.

Thanks

Big Mike,

Trading is a business,
So treat it as such,
You can profit or lose very much
Stick to your plan and never lose touch,
If not careful, you'll be old and using a crutch.

Thank you!

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.

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 !!!

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

Due to the cost of my "Education" in trading, winning a free license for Ninja would be the equivalent of covering the cost of one of my recent laddering attempts on OIH calls. Wouldn't make up of for the loss, but would certainly make me feel better about myself. LOL.

In getting a lifetime license to NinjaTrader I would commit to this service, uninstall the rest and just get after it. The dome would be much easier than my current PFG. Best wishes for everyone here @ Big Mikes!!!

My G_d told us to bless Israel and this in a way a reminder: G_d said I WILL BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS ISRAEL.
Do you want G_d to bless you? Here is one way.

Pray for peace, Jerusalem, city of our G_d.
There salvation was poured out for you,
The atoning of the L_rd.
Once your streets filled with joy,
Branches raised up high,
Shouting, "Blessed be the Holy One,
YESHUA ET ADONAI.

SHALOM, SHALOM JERUSALEM, PEACE BE TO YOU, WHEN MESSIAH COMES TO TAKE US HOME MAY HIS PRAISE BE FOUND IN YOU.

Israel, beloved Ephraim my son, How my heart would thrill to hear you say,
"THE MESSIAH HAS COME." Oh my brothers, hear these words, May they pierce your soul.
TURN AGAIN TO WORSHIP ADONAI, MESSIAH YOU WILL KNOW.
Israel Hope - "Arise O L_rd"
Israel's Hope Productions 1987d

I might not win the prize-BUT my G_d blesses me.

Choose the appropriate tittle for this video:



1.) He didn't follow his trading plan.
2.) He moved his stops and got creamed.
3.) He traded live with a new indicator.
4.) He traded with too many contracts for his account size and blew up another account.
5.) He joined a new trading room hoping to ring the register... not.
6.) All of the above.

I have already taught Ninjatrader how to talk.

If living with it for a lifetime, I promise to feed it walnuts and blueberries every day (to give it the brain of a much younger rat), to optimize all my indicators to make its life easier, and to take it for a daily walk.

Young Chuck moved to Texas and bought a Donkey from a farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the Donkey the next day.
The next day he drove up and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died.’
Chuck replied, ‘Well, then just give me my money back.’
The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.’
Chuck said, ‘Ok, then, just bring me the dead donkey.’
The farmer asked, ‘What ya gonna do with him?
Chuck said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’
The farmer said ‘You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!’
Chuck said, ‘Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.’
A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, ‘What happened with that dead donkey?’
Chuck said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $998.’
The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’
Chuck said, ‘Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.’
Chuck now works for Goldman Sachs.

I've been stuck in the Hatch and getting sick of resetting my codes. Gimme the Ninja lifetime codes man before I have to reset this damn counter again.

I'll see you in another life, brother!

Guys,

I do not know whether you have the same problem but when I think I've found some links between numbers, 5 minutes later I realize that they totaly sucks.

Strange, but when I write strategy with problems it performs better than the correct one? Is this happening only to me??

Happy anniversary Mike.

Jaguar52 you hit the nail right on the head. I have discovered through Mike's forum a practical way to do exactly what is needed for High Probability Trading.

I am almost ready to go live and trade again after nearly 10 years of my introductory and I think almost mandatory dunking that every trader goes through sometime in their career. When I lost that for me substantial sum and experienced the shock and hand ringing of that day I vowed to learn how to trade and considered that contribution as the cost of tuition for this profession.

The great thing about this line of work is that you can train for free with the simulators, all it takes is perseverance and determination to make it through the highs and lows of the process.

It took me a while to discover the exact market for my style of trading. The whole journey has been and continues to be a path of discovery. One of the key stops on this path is this forum with the generous sharing of software and ideas that for me has been a breakthrough in my trading.

It would have been a much longer road to success without the help of everyone here. In any case I have been working on my setup and I was waiting till I was satisfied with it and in the spirit of this forum I want to share with others.


Anyway
Cheers to Mike !!
On this first anniversary!! Many more to come!

From Wikipedia: A ninja or shinobi was a covert agent or mercenary of feudal Japan specializing in unorthodox arts of war. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration and assassination, as well as open combat in certain situations. The ninja, using covert methods of waging war, were contrasted with the samurai, who had strict rules about honor and combat.
Now I know why they call it Ninja Trader.
Shinobi Trader just doesn't work.
The market, like the samurai, has strict rules. Unlike the samurai, however, these rules do not apply to honor or combat. The market has no regard for honor and will use ever dirty trick in the book to beat you.
Espionage? Can you say "insider trading"?
Sabotage? If you don't get your mental framework right you do that to yourself every time you get into a trade.
Open combat? Anyone can open an account and step onto the field of battle.
As for infiltration and assassination, years ago I felt as though a group of cigar smoking fat cats sitting in a dark room somewhere had infiltrated my computer. They saw every trade I entered. Then, in an effort to assassinate my account, took the market the other way.
I need the free lifetime license so I can be a covert agent or mercenary of my trading account.

I got a real kick out of reading some of the posts in the various contests. No doubt the judges will have a hard time picking the winners. For me it’s purely academic whether or not I win. Sure it would be nice but it’s really not why I’m writing. I’m writing because it’s the perfect opportunity to say what I have wanted to say for some time.
I have been trading now for about 20 years, successfully for the past 19. That first year was tough, real tough. However since then things have been good … no complaints here. Then I stumbled upon Big Mikes forum while testing Ninja Trader about 5 months ago. I have to say I was completely blown away by the expertise, professionalism, and truly unselfish generosity of its Moderator and its members. If I have any regrets at all it’s from my own lack of participation. I figure after 20 years I must have something to offer! While personal obligations have put a squeeze on my time at the moment, going forward I hope to change that.
While there is much more I could say about futures.io (formerly BMT) I’ll just finish by saying this, that even with 20 years of experience at my back this forum has made me a better trader … period! And in the end, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Thanks guys,
Joe

Me and My Guru: A Conversation
Below is an excerpt of my conversation with a real trading guru on the occasion of my asking him how I could become a Ninja Trader.

Me: Oh master, I am so unworthy of your wisdom and yet yearn to drink from this fountain of knowledge that I may become a Ninja Trader. Would you kindly guide me?

Guru: As I see that you are feeble and long in years I will dispense with the usual game that we gurus engage in, making life hell for our students to separate those that really want it from those superficially interested.

Me: I am eternally grateful for sparing me, Oh Master, although the word ‘eternally’ here must be understood in the context of a limited life span, which, if I keep trading the way I have been lately, might become even more limited.

Guru: Then we should proceed with haste. I would not be pleased if you were to enjoy the teachings for just a short time. Before we start, take a deep breath and relax. These teachings must be received in a state of relaxed awareness.

Me (breathing deeply): Ready, Oh Master.

Guru: Very well. There are 7 axioms of trading. I will give you five of these, which, if followed, are enough to make you consistently profitable. I will observe if you are indeed consistently profitable and only then allow you to have the last 2, which will make you wealthy beyond your imagination. I shall illustrate some of the axioms with stories that have profound meaning, although they might appear superficial. I must warn you though; the path to Ninjahood is most treacherous. A desire to learn is not the basis for learning, but sincerity is. Examine seriously whether you are sincere in your quest. Here are the axioms.

Axiom 1: Follow no one, but learn from everyone. You will learn more from people and ideas that many would consider irrelevant and even worthless, than from things that are heavily advertised and marketed. You need to keep your eyes and mind open and be in a receptive state for the learning to occur. But, follow no one – using another person’s trading system is like using their toothbrush – it might work but it’s yucky!

Axiom 2: It’s not the tools you have that will make you successful, it’s how you use them. And remember to use them for what they were intended. A story comes to mind: A villager had to transport some goods to another village and was really worried about thieves he might encounter along his route. So he took a gun in one hand and a dagger in the other and set off on his journey with his donkey and the goods. Sure enough the thieves showed up, paid no attention to the fact he was armed, and took the goods. Upon returning to the village, the villager was asked, “why did you let them go?” He responded, “Well, I had my hands full!”

Axiom 3: Be a skeptic of all trading information you read, hear or see. One lie will keep out forty truths. Trust your experience above all else. The story that goes with this follows: Rancher Bob had a beautiful horse that he kept tied in the back of his ranch home. His neighbor Mel, who would borrow the horse occasionally, showed up one day with that intention. Rancher Bob didn’t feel like lending his horse that day, however. So when asked he said “Mel, I’m sorry but I lent the horse to Carl already”. Disappointed, Mel turned around and started out of the house when the horse gave a loud neigh that all heard. With this Mel came right back at Bob and pointed out that he heard the horse. Without skipping a beat Rancher Bob said “who’re you gonna believe: Me, or the horse?!”

Axiom 4: Focus on the two columns that will support your trading – controlling risk and controlling your biases. Anything else is secondary. Every second in the market is a second exposed to risk, but without risk there is no reward. Study, live, breathe, and understand risk deeply. If the oven is hot, make bread, but keep your fingers from burning. Approach the market unbiased. The smallest bias can ruin your trade just like a little grain of pepper can cause a huge sneeze. And realize that having no bias is daunting for a human being as illustrated by the following story: A recent President, who is no longer, was vacationing in his Texas ranch, while still President. He was fishing in one of the streams that run through the ranch when he saw the Vice-President waving at him from the opposite shore. “How do I get to the other side?” yelled the VP. “You ARE on the other side!” yelled back the President happily.

Axiom 5: Aim high, and be humble in your achievements. The story: A villager once saw a fox that was missing a leg but appeared well fed. This piqued his curiosity, so he followed the fox to see how the situation could be explained. He saw that the fox positioned itself where a lion brought his kill. After the lion finished, the fox would eat the leavings. The man decided he would do the same as the fox and sat on the street waiting, which lead to him getting weaker and hungrier. As he got weaker he heard a voice say “why behave like a lame fox? Why not behave like a lion so that others might benefit from your leavings?”

Guru: And that is all for now.

Me: Oh Master, I shall study these lessons and make you proud. Although at the moment I am more confused than when I opened Al Brooks’ bar-by-bar book. But I am sure that with study, these will percolate into my consciousness. Thank you, great Master.

By the way, if I should happen to win the Lifetime License to Ninja Trader, I will reveal the 2 additional axioms that the guru will give me.

Cheers Mike!

This is just a short preview of what you can learn on this futures.io (formerly BMT) Forum :-)




1. Good morning, pals, let`s take a walk to look around for some
meal..yeah, dog`s meal. The first catch was easy, my lovely bone
hidden near the fence.

2. Next steps are around neighbour, watch out!! He has really
crazy cat(low of the day), yep..no food.

3. After while of walking we can smell first signs of forest,
where we will go later. It is really strange, I am sure,
this could be danger - which means lot of fun.

4. Pretty bone, maybe we can find another one..

5. It is always the same situation, look around garbage near houses,
if you find something, just grab it and run along the fence to
the next house.

6. Ok, nice ride to here, but we can see, that another dogs were caught
into the trap, let`s run away.

7. Really long hunt, but with really nice result! Yes, I can`t eat it,
but female dogs will love it .

8. Oouch, dog! I completely forgot, we are so close to forest and something
stinky is sorrounding us..can you feel it? Let`s turn our way.

9. We are passing field with corn, on the corner we can see a tractor and
just few meters far from there is a farm. My nose! What is this?
Yeah, on wooden table next to the house I see picnick basket,
on plate are prepared steaks! Just take it gently, hmm so delicate piece of art.

10.Why this must always end, I want more! But the farmer is herding cows back to
farm and there is also one angry bull! Run, just run.

11.You should be prepared always for the worst situation like this, but we are back
in deep forest.. Too many footprints of something huge, here is no safety for sure.
Just turn back and find another path.

12.This was quite long run, we are back in town and I am sure, this is my way to dog`s
heaven, I am in front of weird big house..called a museum? It will be very tricky,
but I can get in.
Oh my dog! After while, I found it. I found probably a holy grail. This bone is the
biggest I have ever seen.

13.On a walk-home I am not concentrated and I have been atacked by a wild cat!
But I have to think about my museum - big bone, there is nothing more like this.

14.Upss, another cat! They are so cruel, too many scratches in one day, let`s go
home to dream about my holy grail, about my dino-bone :-) .

And the best at the End :-) , I have to share with you real truth about traders on this forum.
Yes, it is not really "trendy" to use AOS, you can trust your best friend!

Here's a trader puzzle. This image contains 8 relatively well known traders. The objective is to match the traders on the left with the trading perspectives they're known for on the right.

If you get stuck, an answer key is also attached.
