Already back?

Hi ZTR,

you are back here.

Does this mean that

a) you have recovered after three days?
b) you don't care?
c) you are highly addicted to this forum and can't stop posting
d) you just lead us astray?
e) or you simply changed your mind?

A lot of feeling better. If you rest too much you rust.

Crazy, but if chemo makes you feel better something was really wrong

The forum is a great place & I want to contribute, but must curtail activity.

Had several ideas that needed to be documented, and a story...

This forum is the place that makes it easier for me to do that.

Finally, If I can survive all this, maybe I can encourage others having a tough time.

Today is about one or 2 trades with super low risk entries in CL or 6e early, then a nap & YM later.

My Bad!

This kinda looks ok? Except I did it 1/2 in SIM & 1/2 Real $$$. What?

Yes, I had to reopen a DOM window and it did not have the color scheme I used to ID SIM vs. Real.

So, I was clicking in the DOM SIM and Chart Trader Real. I was down a lot before I realized & Began laughing.

Oh, No!

Got out with a $90 loss. At this point I knew I could hold a ton of cars, and not be adversly changed in my trading. All the SIM'in paid off.

Hey ZTR,

Keep hanging in there buddy, don't give up.

Here's one for you : YouTube - Johnny Cash - 'Hurt"

Originally made by Nine Inch Nail's but when they heard this from him they said : It's not our song anymore, it's Johnny's.

We're all bitching about crap every day, we should remind ourselves that love and health are so important. Thanks for your posts ZTR.

Turns out I spoke too soon,

MY doc is worried about my health & my friend, a pathologist, is really worried.

My doctor sent me an e-mail this morning, telling me, that the high steroids are having extraordinarily detrimental effects. I am losing lung capacity, my muscles are wasting, and I'm extraordinarily susceptible to infection.

Then my friend comes over to watch football. I get a few drinks in him, and he says I have 35% chance. Chance of what? Making it to the end of the year. Paraphrasing, but doctors know how to let you down.

Someone stuck at home needs something to do. So, for me it's cooking, drinking good wine, playing chess & trading.

Pretty much my life for the next little while.

Working to get on a clinical trial or hospice. The former is much more preferable.

So I've started Trading as a Business thread & and that's where I'll be posting.

If you are serious about making this business let us have a discussion.
