Soap box right from the start until minute 25. Going over
- data quality & tools
- how to draw trendlines (today's data only!)
- signal bars & sitting out if they are not great
- key entry points and patience - this is where he really gets going

Life hack: I listen to Mack's videos at 2x speed. Still understanding everything perfectly but only takes half as long, so I can go over the key points a couple times

Live trade in the first four minutes. Then back to trying to save new traders from themselves.

Today was another barn burner all about learning to walk before you run. As in DON'T BE A DONATOR


It is interesting over the last couple of months that he has a lot of new subscribers and a lot of them make the same mistakes. You hear the frustration in his voice as he wants to be positive and not discourage people but at the same time some folks don't get it. As in asking him why a second entry short failed in a major up trend.

Sometimes the best move is no move.

Starts at 27:30 lasts till the end.

Lets keep this thread alive! Mack's words are gold. After 9 years I keep going back to his wisdom. I'll do an audio collection of all his "soap box" talks so if you know any that isn't here in thread, please share it with us. Again, his work is just gold.


“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” Δ

“There is no path, but only a fool wouldn’t follow it.”
