Zombie Traders

There are a lot of zombie traders -- suits@desks, couch potatoes@home as well coffee and puff breakers@elsewhere

Ask yourself -- Am I a 'Zombie Trader'? Does anyone influence my trading decisions?

Uniqueness is the key and without it you're just another one in the herd.

Taking existing concepts/ideas and then modify and make them your own is the part of the game that you have to know how to do.

Observe and learn!

And remember, don't follow the follower -- because you don't even know who the leader may be.

And foremost, don't get fleeced


Btw, heard any good zombie trader stories lately?

When you follow the crowd, instead of anticipating the crowd, you're destined to loose.

And, anticipating the crowd takes planning, thinking, and distinctiveness.

I would say Big Mike is a zombie trader.... his eternal vigilance in regards to monitoring this site does not allow him any rest...as a result of his condition I think his dogs have taken control of this place and throw him bones once in a while to placate him.
