Firstly I don't remotely think @indextrader7 intended to accuse anyone.

Secondly I appreciate @xelaar for openly sharing his combine attempt with the community - it not only takes courage, guts etc. but shows that you have faith in yourself, trust in the world at large.

And no, documenting a combine journey isn't "showing off" - a combine journal is all about the sweat, hard work, decisions taken on the spur of the moment - given the possibilities of what all can go wrong, building a solid track record is no mean achievement.

So folks, wave your white flags - and also wave a chequered flag for @xelaar so that he completes his combine with good cheer - I wholeheartedly support his development having gone through the labor pains myself


I'm curious @iqgod, what do think is meant by indextrader's post?


Or, better yet, can @indextrader7 himself tell us why he made that post?

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

How about everyone take a chill pill and move on beyond any insinuations, negative interpretations etc...

Xelaar, please just keep going at your combine. You've been a great inspiration so far!

wow


Really unbelievable! lol

The thought of "cheating" never crossed my mind. I've seen xelaar's live video's of his trading. He certainly knows what he's doing!

I was simply pointing out what it was that I POINTED OUT. The columns are misaligned!

My apologies for the stir! Interesting to see the reactions of different people though.

All the best xelaar, keep up the great work, and I'm sorry for the journal getting offtrack.

Wouldn't it be funny if we had the boys from TST on a webinar and they said ...
"xelaar , indextrader ... never heard of either of them !"
Just a little joke there guys !

Never doubted either of you. You can always trust surfers and motorcyclists !

Day 22 - tired

Tired today. I took only 2 trades. One I cut short as it went nowhere near my target, second could hit my target 20 ticks, but I cut it short at 7. Hard to trust it when most trades provide just a small blip my way. I am working on a reversal trade concept though.

Overall 2 trades, +7 and +7 on 5 cars each. Net +650 on the day.
