That may be the case, but you are doing that every 48 mins based on your stats. And at an avg of 6 trades a day at is $9MM a day.

Tturner,

Another trader, who knows my successful SIM history, sent me this message and I think it's apropos:

"....Do your own thing as you've been doing it! Follow your plan and trade the same way you've successfully been trading SIM, in practice for the combine. Don't change now as the most important thing is the consistency you've been having..."

"....Do your own thing as you've been doing it! Follow your plan and trade the same way you've successfully been trading SIM, in practice for the combine. Don't change now as the most important thing is the consistency you've been having..."

Then follow your plan. I know today is only one day, but you didn't follow your plan (avg in, etc) and it almost cost you the combine. The only other 'free' advice I will provide is to watch your trailing max drawdown. Your avg a loss of $2k a day at the moment, so within a day or two if you have the same performance you could hit that limit.

Also please understand that all comments I have made have been in good faith, I have no malice towards you and only wish you the best in trading like I do all other users of futures.io (formerly BMT). (Unless you are on the opposite side of my trade then we are sworn enemies ).

Overall I just believe you may be running a 10k marathon before you have learned to crawl.

**And a note about SIM. It is meaningless. It is good to learn a strat, how to execute your trades, and understand your platform. But it is not Live trading and will never compare. The combine is a step closer towards live.

I concur, Tturner86.

Hi, KevinDog!

That's the thing....I got greedy and I got stubborn. Nothing. Absolutely NADA on my trading plan allows for that type of reckless behavior; including but not limited to trying out a new technique, called "averaging in". I broke all my rules. I'm also suppose to have stopped trading after having three consecutive losses. I'm suppose to exercise for at least 30-days, before the trading day and I haven't done that - at all - since I started the combine.

It's been a mess. I take full responsibility, KevinDog. On top of it all, I got a shingles outbreak that burned my skin to no end, the night before my combine started. That should've been my clue.

OK, so how will you prevent it from happening again?

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

Thanks for the accountability call, KevinDog.

I will do my cardio exercise for at least 30-minutes, before I start trading for the day. No exceptions!
Exercise is the only thing that gives me clarity, during my Pre-Market (PM) analyses and it's amazing how I've had my BEST trading days, when I give myself time to swim laps at my sparkling, pool or lift weights.

I will follow my trading plan to the T on all the other salient points.

Much appreciate you calling me to the carpet.

Good old Martha is back, spamming again as ever.

I would like to point out that there was absolutely no advantage of making your combine 3 times the max. size except you paid more for it. Even if you pass the Combine, they aren't going to let you trade 35 cars right away, you have to prove yourself twice more (LTP and building the cushion live) you will only be allowed to increase size after passing those hurdles.

But as entertainment value, this thread is A+, I am getting my popcorn.....

Pedro40,

You are absolutely, dead wrong about what TsT will not let me do. This game is about sizing-up to a certain level. We are all here to improve our game. I'm personally not challenged by having the ability to trade 35 cars.

Did you read my earlier posts? I've already disclosed that I will happily volunteer to partake in the LTP. As a matter of fact, I think it should be 100% required by all combine recruits, who pass the combine, and have a winning probability of less than 75%.

I'm not a spammer, either. I'm a fanatic for spreading the message and the purpose my Guru has set forth. Anyone who wants to learn more, will need to simple google my name.

Make sure you get the non-GMO popcorn.

Best / MC

Kindy sleezy


I can't believe that Martha does not have some sort of marketing angle in this. I mean trading a ridiculous number of cars for a beginner to draw viewers to her thread, posting affiliate links (until Mike makes her remove them), and I heard that she runs a chat room on the side, or at least used to.....
