Do you guys and gals ever look at trading videos. This guy on youtube trades some serious size. Like 450 in the ES and 50 6E. He shows his DOM, but you can't tell if its live or sim. I think its live. He doesn't do much commentary, so not very educational. Most of the videos are at high speed. It may not be helpful, but its interesting to see someone trade that kind of size and have end with a PnL of 100K+. If you can figure out how he is trading please share.
Sam, I know it seems crazy or odd, but I don't think making videos or the kind of music he uses is an indication of anything. It is my understanding that some of the most successful traders are not the sharpest tools in the shed and that they may even be what some would call blue collar. If the guy is young enough and likes Rap and is making this kind of money then he has the time to do the videos etc and may enjoy it. I an not 100% certain, but some of the videos are of him in the Thinkorswim chat room while trading. Unless it's a scam it seems valid. There is also the aspect of ego and from what I gather this guy has a big one.
