Have you ever traded with real money on the line or, as I suspect, you're most likely sitting in public housing and cashing your welfare checks. But you're one helluva writer. In fact, some of your posts are spot on or shall I say,...too perfect. Almost, like you've never traded a day in your life with real emotions. 95% of traders are loser wannabes. Now I know you're in the 95% piker crowd but if I ever need someone to pretend to be guru, my way or the highway, I have all the answers and mine are better than yours, then I know who to go to.
Edit: don't even bother responding. I don't compete with gurus for attention. That's a game I'm sure to lose. I'm done here.

Wow ... I have to jump in here. We frown upon this type of nonsense around here. There is no reason
for me to think that TigerTrader is anything but a fully funded successful trader. His grasp of the markets
is stellar .
I think the same thing about you. What would make me think you weren't a successful trader.
Nobody really knows what anybody is worth in cyber world , so why not just try to learn from everybody if what
they say is logical and makes sense to your trading style.

@tigertrader is on the other end of the spectrum. A good skill to have is to know who knows what he is talking about and who doesn't. There isn't any point in insulting others as there is no benefit for you and just reflects poorly on you.

This post isn't really aimed at anyone in particular. I am home today because of snow & wind and couldn't go to our church meeting. So I have some time this afternoon that I don't usually have.
I have really enjoyed reading Panda Warrior's thread over the last months. I admire anyone with the perseverance and tenacity to do what Panda has done and is doing.
I tried to create my own method by mix and match over the years but I am not smart enough even if I had the time to do it myself. So for the last couple years I have been putting in my time learning a real method that is taught over and over by the guys at Max Trading System. This chart is not a live trade. It is simply a marked up chart from Jan 3, 2014 CL 02-14 futures contract using the entry and exits I have learned and continue to practice with in NT7 replay, sim 101 and to a much lesser degree in my live account. It includes things taught in several levels of the MAX.
I can't elaborate on what the indis are or what the settings are for them. That is taught in the MAX courses and I signed a non-disclosure agreeing not to give away their proprietary info. Their focus is price action using indicators to help discern better where price may stall, turn or continue to run.
My purpose in posting is to just show that there is a methodical way to maximize profits while containing risk and emotions. The chart speaks for itself. I don't have to pay attention to which way the wind blows across my ... well, whatever As a bi-vocational pastor & HVAC technician I don't have time to invent something. I just want to learn something real that works. I don't mind paying for something legitimate. So I have been slowly learning and applying what I have learned from some guys that know how to teach and help you learn if you are willing to exercise patience and discipline. I am on the verge of having enough knowledge and screen time to start trading for real soon, Lord willing.
Thanks to all for your continued participation in lots of profitable discussions. I have learned a lot of good things here on futures.io (formerly BMT). Everyone has a different turn to their personality and different trading styles suit different traders. We learn from all things that will help us down the road.
After all, life is short. I hope to learn how to hold on loosely to the things God blesses me with in this world so I can in turn be a blessing to others as I honor the LORD. As the Apostle Paul wrote: "let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor with his hands that he might have something to give him who has need." (Ephesians 4:28).
Brian, thanks for your candid and faithful work in journaling your trading journey. I hope your ailments don't last long and that you continue to grow in your understanding of the markets and how to capture profit in your account. May you be a blessing to many others.
Blessings in Christ Jesus,
P.S. I have no connection to the owners of the MAX TRADING SYSTEM other than as a student continually benefiting from their teaching and updates. But after spending lots of money on junk I have finally found something real that I don't regret spending my money on to learn.
