Bruno Mars taught me to do anything for the one person I love

Lady Gaga taught me it's okay to be different

Ke$ha taught me to be myself and not care what anybody else thinks

Eminem taught me life is hard but you can always make it through

Taylor Swift taught me not every girl is gonna treat me right

Micheal Jackson taught me to always love people around me

Music taught me how to live my life

But most importantly:

the fox taught me Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!

Someone who has gone to the nth degree to find success can't help but not exhibit some forms of insanity as unacceptable as it might seem. There have been many mathematicians driven insane to the brink of death from being so close to prove themselves. I think the same sort of psychosis would plague many traders if it weren't for the inevitable gratification of turning such conflict into money.

Good grief....

I'm not wired the same as you Gary...I still enjoyed watching you trade and i like the way you wait for the market to tell you what it wants to do...whilst i don't have the attention span to read the deeper ramblings here, i can appreciate that some people need to express themselves this way. I can listen to it, but i can't read it without thinking about something i need to do...

Keep on keeping on...

Have a great holiday too, with your lovely missus.

If this thread is going to continue, it should be edited to not come across as disrespect to Mike or to futures.io (formerly BMT) in general. It did not start as intended, and is now gaining some momentum.

I am experiencing some strong rejection of certain things, but the benefit of that is not what has been suggested here already. If this is to be a beneficial thread, something needs to change.

Indeed, change can only come from within

Even though I initially defined this topic to be about "censorship", that was not the correct definition. Censorship has purpose. I had, ironically, already censored myself regarding the "blow me" comment, before the inertia of that thought skid itself to a clumsy stop.

The ricochet feeling is about a very hard turn, where I almost instantly (over a period of a few days or weeks);

1) started utilizing my own knowledge to an exponentially higher efficiency
2) simultaneously stopped being interested in listening to the opinion of others.

I was seeing that in my "psychology backtesting", that new burst of attitude towards trading gave the best trading results I had ever experienced.

I had also started to recognize I was starting to get too edgy, but at the same time I did not really care that I was. And decided to make a "final" journal thread about it. I was drunk, opinionated, and mentally prepared to be ejected from the club... and was not expecting to bump right into @Big Mike in that frame of mind.

But, it got off to the wrong start, and I do not feel right continuing to support a thread that in my opinion is disrespectful to Mike and others in this futures.io (formerly BMT) community that I care about. It was a mistake on my part, and I apologize.

And would be all over that GaryD guy if I was not afraid of messing up whatever he had going... he still has my money.



This thread is dead. "Washout move".

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)
