He lit me up tonight, then went right back to napping in my lap. Blood slowly forming a drop off my finger, I admired that, and petted him. He was feral, still is to some degree. But he is reasonable. LOL!!!!
If I am "Do Not Disturb" on Skype, I am in potential trade mode. Not necessarily in a trade, but just relaxing into it. But I am online if it matters. Best approach is a text. If I blow you off, it was bad timing.
If this is (will not list), downplay this message. You have to know what I am saying.
I like talking about trading, enjoy any part from learning to teaching, but it has less of a place in the trade. We will no matter what always trade alone.

I got invited into a trading room today. It was a slow day, I had my trade wishlist set, said "sure". Called two trades, about 30 ticks each, signed off. Got ready to go learn to surf, we had 2-3 in Cocoa today, minimum I have been watching for. Summer sucks for waves unless there is something tropical.
So just before I walked out, I saw a few questions in this trade room about why I did not post charts. I said something that was true, but felt cocky.
"I just "know" my market. I have posted charts for years, but that does not really matter. No indicator can save you".
That has nothing to do with me having any guarantee of success. It does not mean I know how far a market will go.
It means, I know when I have an edge based on me. How I view things. The experience I have.
Some people will ask me "How many contracts?" My thought is, who cares?
As many as you feel is right given your risk tolerance, account size, and experience. But never is any one trade better than another. Some have faster expectations for completion. Some have greater risk to reward. Some have high percentage probability.
But more important than any of that is survivability. Maybe a word I made up. It means what it sounds like, but also means, it is not about the money. It is about being a skilled trader.
