Here's my new Trading Plan from today's conversation;

1) Get extremely high.
2) Talk to myself as though I am Darth Vader.
3) Leverage myself to the hilt and hold on until my target hits.

Maybe I can get some real money to back me? I think I'll order my new Panamera tomorrow...


Blimin' heck.. I leave you alone for a while and look what happens...
seems it's all going to pot..

As for creating an alternate personality with an English accent..well that is most strange indeed...
Strange that is, because I haven't received my royalties yet

Anyway regarding the more important issues at hand..don't bogart ...

shalom

Every moment I wake up I realize I know nothing, and then I smile...

You sure are quick to criticize my new winning plan without letting it play out yet. I think I can even get a Vader mask that has a voice synthesizer built-in, and then use my webcam to put my other me on screen beside the charts. I am feeling the force already.

lol...I had such high hopes...

Btw, I didn't want to mention it, but of all the characters from "that film" you're "chosing" Darth Vadar..!!!!!

OK, yes I believe in subconscious. But to be fair, it was one of the few voices I thought I could do. Seriously, if I impersonated Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker, which would you be more likely to recognize?

Now of course there is Yoda, and maybe I could practice my Yoda-speak, but I would miss out on the cool mask...

And, really, Yoda did not come along until later. Yoda is next year's trading plan.

Oh goodness..he's got the mask..already..

Well I guess if that's the reflection you see every morning, it's one interpretation of waking up to your dark side..
Looking forward to the sequal...

Thanks guys, I don't get many chances to just play, but I enjoy it when I do.

Monday will possibly hold real volume again, but I have meetings starting at 8am. I am curious to see how Friday's action is met. Monday night/ Tuesday will be my first shot at participation again.

Really liking this SuperTrend U11 by @Fat Tails. Very adaptive indicator. No idea what to do with it yet, but I like it. If anyone can help me backtest it without understanding how to write in C# I would appreciate it. I am seeing at least 3 uses.

PermaBear!!

(I grabbed that off the internet. I only wish it was me)

What was most curious, as I found it on You Tube, is the next video it suggested for me was "Cat Spraying Butt Liquid". How that relates to a search for Darth vader Voice Synthesizer I don't know, but maybe they both have the same connection to trading. None.
