Wonderful call, Mike. I cooked dinner tonight, and pumped that webinar through the ceiling speakers as I did. I am going to listen again at least once when I can focus more. Thanks.

Nice setup, I wish I had that

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

ermm..I don't know what that is.

Sorry if I'm intruding or at least that you think I am ?
And often I'm a little intense perhaps.

I don't intend to or to be.

Sometimes, and I think I mentioned a while back, that @GaryD invokes me thinking about his journey in my own sense. We are all reflections of each other in many ways, and my last post was as much to help clarify some recent thoughts and perspectives for myself which, I thank @GaryD for allowing, and hopfuly to help him.

I may have misunderstood your point, but I would have to have understood it first which I don't ?

Again my apologies for any unintended intrusion.

Kind regards and wishing you well.

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

NZT is a nitrogen-based psychotropic that impacts specific brain activity in several ways but most significantly by elevating receptivity and synaptic sharing between the hippocampus, the amygdale and the striatum. In controlled doses, taken over the course of a relatively short period of time, NZT significantly improves both short-term and long-term memory, memory capacity, and the analytical purposing of memory. Because it also impacts the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, NZT can improve higher brain function, hand-eye coordination, muscle memory and even the body’s immune system. In some people, NZT can even induce lucid dreaming and what is sometimes called ‘fugue state’.

Sorry guys, it was just a bit of fun, with a handle like @zt379 I thought for sure you'd know what NZT-48 was.

Forgive me

I will have to look that one up.


Pedantic
A state of mind which is about caring a lot about formalities, often more than necessary. One may be called pedantic when he/she points out corrections in unimportant details.

Prat
English term, primarily used in United Kingdom. The literal meaning is "bottom" or "rump"; aka backside, buttocks, sacrum, tail end. This lends itself to the slang meaning of "ass," or "clueless person of arrogant stupidity."



OK, now I at least know what you said. And no, not at all. You and I are both on the same topic, for me it may be this year.

Just curious, what's the benefit of a setup like this over floor/loud computer speakers?
