Totally off topic but,,, How do you get Palm trees to grow in Canada?

I think that's India.

Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.

those are Coconut trees and it is in India

Haha- I thought the cow looked a little odd too! I must have missed something- thought he lived in Canada and that was a picture of his farm.

I think he lives in Canada, and has a farm in India.

Right, @Narcissus?

(I had exactly the same questions for a moment, both the trees and the cow.... then said, hey, wait, that's India.)

Right,
Bob.

Yes, that's right. I live in Canada now after living in UK for 10 years.

I grew up in India but left 20 years ago. The farm in the picture is in India. That SKINNY cow is definitely Indian breed.

We also have 2 Indian Pariah breed dogs in my farm but didn't want to post pics as @Big Mike will start sending food for them They all look thin despite what we feed and I blame it on the weather.

How were the last couple days?

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.

Mike

I assume you mean my trading positions.

My swing position stays the same. 1 ES Short from 1950, added another position 1905 on NFP day. In hindsight, I should have exited my second position at 1944 but the strong bounce threw me off guard. Taking heat but it's manageable due to my account size. Moreover, my premise for short persists until 2011 is taken out on big volume. Until then, I am going to be patient and just observe.

In the meantime, I am just testing a new execution style, similar to ACD but using Volume Profile concepts. The goal is to improve my discipline using fixed targets and stops rather than actively managing. It also allows me to have more day-trading experience despite my 90 mins trading restriction. Response from other members is very encouraging too. Since it's with 150 SPY ALL IN entry and scaling out, expense is fairly low for the experience I get.

Link to that day-trading journal, Get In, Get UP and Leave, is below.

You said:What I don't want to happen is me thinking 20 years from now 'What If, I had tried full time trading in 2016?'

Thanks. It's very encouraging.

I am a bit surprised that you have been a member for 5 years and your first post in the forum was motivated my me.

I am becoming more confident of achieving my plan. Full time trader is actually an oxy moron.

My goal is to become a full time observer/watcher and occasional trader.

I am getting evidence of the biggest obstacle to my trading. No surprises here. That's ME.

My intraday journal is beginning to show that my entries work if don't interfere with them.
