We have had over 120 people from this site thank us for sharing this system with then -so for those who have found improvement in there trading -do what we do every so often -
when we are grocery shopping we randomly pay for someones groceries -we always catch someone that is just about complete and tell the check out person we are paying the bill -the reaction is worth the little bit it cost -let alone the smiles in the end

Very nice creekboy. You're a good man.

I sometimes think he keeps me around just for the dictating and typing.
:sos:

Forget the reasons creekiedictator "cd" keeps you around and don't stop soaking up the opportunity like a sponge. This experience is a turning point in your life bigger than you can imagine right now. But I'm confident you already knew this little detail and were just horsing around from the

Why don't you invest in one of those spiral notebooks you take to class with you and use it as your own personal journal?! Then you can tell cd and the rest of the world:

the next series of post are for option traders -
we hope to show how and why on day trades - swing trades on a 1 day chart and also swingtrades on a 3 day chart -work or fail and hopefully any option traders will learn to wait your turn to enter and exit your trades -and not use the 1 way wait and see what happens system-


on the following charts orange is long and pink is short -all exits are the last high and there are a few stopouts marked - there will be 16 charts to look at
aapl
pcln
netflix
apl
spy
pfe
jpm - 1 day
jpm- 3 day
fcx-

option traders study and setup your own charts and you will learn your direction and risk
