Big Mike,

Is it safe to download movies from btjunkie? Aren't you worried about viruses and hackers and what not?

Thx AkLio. I'm trying to find a .mkv or mp4 of it so I don't have to watch it on the computer. It doesn't seem to be on Netflix yet, and a quick search on btjunkie seems to kick back fakes

Mike

No I highly recommend you don't do it

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Enjoy....

A world that's more riot than profession, the trading floors of Chicago are a place where gambling your family's mortgage is all in a day's work. Floored offers a unique window to this lesser-known world of finance. These men may not have degrees, but they've got guts, and penchant for excess that solicits simultaneous feelings of revulsion and admiration. But like many aspects of our economy, technology is changing the way these traders do business, and these eccentric pit denizens aren't the type to take kindly to new tricks. Check http://www.babelgum.com/floored for more info

I haven't seen the movie yet, but Covel's "TREND FOLLOWING" is one of my all time favorite books.

Can't wait to see the movie.

Interestingly, Covel has a course out too.
I suspect one can construct a well enough trend following system with a free SUPER TREND indicator though.

Does anyone know the story behind Greg Riba? He was by far the most interesting interview in the film and he says cut before we hear what happened to him.
