Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

It depends on the task at hand but this is pretty much spot on. Some things he is very very involved with and others he will trust the brains that he hired.

I take it you've worked with him personally in the past?

Does he have a team of assistants with him that follows him around throughout his day, or does he prefer to go it alone?

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.

I work a ways underneath him. Structures Test Engineer but some projects he is involved with daily, others not as much. He really likes to be involved on the structures side. Although things have changed, I think we are around 5,000 people, I definitely don't see him as much as I used to. I am employee 500 ish so I have been around for a while.

He used to have an assistant, she left maybe 1.5-2 years ago. Not sure if he got another one, but she was more personal assistant style from what I saw, managing schedules, lunch, meals, travel etc. He has to have something now as things have only got more crazy with Tesla and Space X but I honestly don't know what anymore. Like I said, place is crazy now. I used to know a huge majority, now not so much.

The way he strikes me is like this, my thinking (even for my age ) is not about just today or tomorrow, I think about 5 years from now and 10 years from now. I try to live and make life go the way I want it to in the future not only living for the moment. I worry about things out to the 10 year mark or so and thats it. He seems to look at 10-50 years in the future. He doesn't say "IF" we will get to mars we can do whatever, he says "WHEN" we get to mars we will do whatever. There is no doubt in his mind that we will get there. So he thinks about what we will do when we get there, I am still thinking how will we ever get there.

And case and point the reason he makes the calls, the water landings we have made and the "technique" we have used sounded to me like an absolute crap shoot that would never work ... well I am eating my words on that one and I don't mind eating my words either, my options are worth more money now

Love it.


Quoting 
Cantrell's first contact with Musk was a cold call in 2001. As he explains to Esquire:

"I had the top down on my car, so all I could make out was that some guy named Ian Musk was saying that he was an Internet billionaire and needed to talk to me. I'm pretty sure he used that phrase, 'Internet billionaire.'"

Tell Elon to get a drone so we can get some good shots of the reentry like NASA did with Orion.

Too far out for a drone ... I doubt I can say much but I will say that we won't be out done by a piddle little drone by Boeing
