Thats all that matters Mike.

Works for you and you are making a living only thing that matters. Nice to see retail traders make it.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for posting your progress. Are you in the Right Line Trade room every day, or just using their software ?

Hi Mike,
Thanks for posting your progress. Are you in the Right Line Trade room every day, or just using their software ?

I'm currently in room. Have access with system purchase. Mark is a good trader but I have a different way of trading and making it my own, so to speak.
I start my day at 7am, NY Time, and close to being done when Right Line Room opens around 8:30-8:45am, NY Time.
Having the software one needs to anticipate the trades and not wait for call outs. Need to trade on your toes, not on your heels in fast moving markets.
As you can see, I trade NG, CL, GC.....
NG is like a pinball machine at times, which can be both good and bad... But there are price patters that repeat and that's the whole goal on dialing in on those patterns.

Mike,
Got your private msg, but wasn't allowed to respond. I'm actually in the room now, just don't have the software yet.
Thanks again.

Trade Setups 2/20/2014 cont...

Wanted to post GC trades from Thursday, 2/20/2014...

3 qualified trades, even though there were 2 nice ABC's longs but with RED 50MA couldn't take....

The 3rd trade, which was loser, was in chop area. Patiently waited for Pwr entry into the 15MA.
Didn't matter. In these cases, could have limited loss give the lack of follow thru. Again will continue
to work on qualifying entries an/or limit 10tix loss when trade falls apart...
