Since TRO isn't here I will try to help.
First choose to be a green or red rat.
Second always turn left.
Third try to catch a black swan.
And remember either the market is going up or down.
Either you will make money or you will lose.
Either you will be alive or dead.
And with all that said use money management.
His posting style was incompatible with our vision for this site. I tried my best to get him to comply but in the end I'm quite sure he wanted to be banned and so we did.
This isn't directed at you Hapster but just in general, this is one of our best threads. I would like to keep it on topic for those who join a year or two from now and Jeff tells them to read the entire thread.

From my prespcective....I think he was banned for being disruptive to the Big Mike Forum.
I think he was a very good trader but did not have a demeaner that was conducive to what one might think of as good forum etiquette.
Right before he was banned I recieved an email from him......I told him that I feared that his banning was imminent....and to give it rest.....but he did not...and was banned and justly so. I was sorry to see it happen but I believe Big Mike had no choice.
TRO has been banned virtually everywhere he has gone. After a while you'd think he'd take a hint.........
It feeds his ego (imo he was an egoist & possibly a narcissist. not a judgment. just an observation. (was that a give-away that I've spent years in therapy??)) & gives him more credibility with his 'followers'. Think about it.....
TRO 'predicted' it from the beginning. Well, actually, he 'orchestrated it', much as Beethoven would have orchestrated a symphony.
I'm not trying to be mean or hateful. I don't know the guy and other than my 'observation' posted above, I have no opinion of the man. In fact, I stayed on the sidelines the whole time. Just sat back & watched it play out according to his grand design. (I've been in the retail biz for 20 years & have tried various methods of 'attracting' the faithful (customers, in my case)). He got exactly what he set out to get. Good for him.
I wouldn't engage in those kind of tactics, but I know some who do. Not my cup of tea. I wish him well.
After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

I too stayed on the sidelines. What I posted that I learned from
him I couldn't use in my trading but it did in fact entertain me. lol
I felt I was listening to an angry Yoda. I hope him well, it was fun
while it lasted.
For those of you that use indicators that repaint but still like them.
If you are trying to adjust them scroll back a few days. Open up
your indicators and hit apply and close. Then you can go bar by bar
and watch how they repaint as if you replaying the market. Many
may know this but it is something I use.
