Gratitude

Been way to long in coming to fruition but today events have transpired that demand a thread on gratitude. I made money before I came to futures.io (formerly BMT). If futures.io (formerly BMT) or my tenure here ever ends, I will continue to make money.

Sometimes that outcome is in spite of myself not because of anything I do, any skill, experience, specific knowledge or good luck. So I want to remain grateful. Grateful for the things that I think I had something to do with and especially grateful for the contributions made by others. I mean we can learn from everyone, right? The good traders , the smart programmers and the rookies alike all have something to contribute.

Today a very well respected forum member want so far out of his way to help me that I can hardly believe it. I did not do anything to deserve the keen assistance, I did not even ask for the help...yet it came.

It came in such a humbling way that it makes me aware that sometimes I should wonder, who the hell do I think I am?

Infinite gratitude....after all, I expect it is true that what we bless in our lives and that which we constantly focus on... we will draw more of, into our lives.

So I'm making a forum thread just for the purpose of sharing gratitude with and for those that either intentionally or unknowingly have blessed us. My purpose here on futures.io (formerly BMT) will have a simple focus. I'll either be learning, sharing or thanking. I encourage everyone to consider that. DB

Thank you so much...


@Fat Tails

Harry, thanks so much for helping me get the NT documents squared away this morning. I can do a good number of things pretty well but when it comes to what you helped me with today I am a mess. I know that seems strange, but without help I'd never make it.

Thank you also for translating C# into English on that one indicator. I've been using that visually without a deep and certain understanding so the clarity you provided on that provides an even greater level of confidence in the method that employs that indicator.

I loved seeing the advanced work and the ideas behind your proprietary indicators. Thank you for reviewing those with me. The volume and the value of what you have shared with me and in the forum for free demands that I look at everything you create. I can only discover, I can only get better by being exposed to the thoughtful and creative ideas of talented people. I am excited to dig in to those ideas as soon as possible.

Sincere gratitude to you for your wonderful contribution to others.

All the best Harry...in trading and in life.

Dan

You are...

@Fat Tails

You are a brilliant and humble man Harry. The way you share your gifts is inspiring. Visual review of the items we discussed yesterday kept me up most of the night.

I had mentioned being in the process of reviewing and simplifying my approach. Along those lines, I do think that some of your ideas are among the best and brightest ideas I have ever seen.

My daily review is focused on the bottom 20% of trades. I usually have to include winners in the bottom 20% BUT recently (the last quarter) have acquired as many losing trades as winning ones. I went back and applied the two ideas we focused most of our time on to the bottom 20% of 2013 trades. It is one thing to break discipline and get beat up. The answer for that is obvious. The trick is often in finding the answer to trades that "should" have worked. You are the answer man Harry. Brilliant and humble, willing to share. When an influence (you) causes people to add action to gratitude the result is inspiration. In 20 years of trading I've known two people of that caliber...you now make it three.

@wldman: Thank you for your friendly words. I usually do not like any kind of flattery or adulation (trying to find an English translation for the German word "Lobhudelei", which is rather funny). I am here, because I am fascinated by the markets and because that fascination drives me to assimilate ideas and knowledge from other members of this forum. I then apply and maybe modify those ideas and reproduce them. My indicators, strategies and other contributions here are just an offshoot from the process of digesting ideas and wisdom. I have not invented the world, it is only a personal path to discovery that always ends with amazement. That path and the pleasure of being amazed may be more important to me than the riches to which it is supposed to lead.

Probably I am not hungry enough to let myself revolve around the filthy lucre. Everybody who earns more than he needs to live should consider himself rich. I am grateful to be here as well, as it is both enlightening and entertaining.
