I watched this over the weekend and have to admit that I also had to consult google after watching it to figure out what was actually going on. After figuring out what was going on, I enjoyed having watched it even more. Really good movie. Probably one of the only movies i've ever really sat and thought about after watching.

If you find any other similar mystery thriller type movies, let me know. One that comes to mind from a few years back which I recall being fairly good was Memento.

I'm chuffed anyone actually took my movie recommendation, so you're automatically my futures.io (formerly BMT) chum now, and I'll follow you everywhere. Not surprised a fellow trader liked it, we're a bunch who like a challenge in understanding complexities!

I have a huge s****r phobia, so that last scene really took me off guard. I've seen a ridiculous amount of films, so can definitely recommend a few along the same lines:

I enjoyed memento also, directed by Christopher Nolan (Batman director) if you weren't aware.

The director of Enemy made a previous film, Prisoners. Worth checking out, though it's a crime thriller mystery. Similar to Prisoners is a film Zodiac (also stars Jake) which is pretty awesome, also a crime thriller mystery --> I recommend both, preferred Zodiac.


Also check out the prestige, (directed by Christopher Nolan), trailer makes it look a bit crap but it's absolutely awesome, so good!

Actually I have a ton of recommendations but I don't want to bore you or overload,

Two more, if you haven't seen Pi, you must as a trader, it's funny comparing it to trading system development and it's an amazing movie by an awesome director (warning: black and white). If you like confusing films you need to google, I'd recommend Donnie Darko (also Jake).

Oh man, just thought of another great mystery film: Moon! you have to watch moon! Don't watch the trailer before hand.

Turismo

Edit: In order of recommendation, mystery/thrillers --

[1] Moon
[2] Pi
[3] The prestige
[4] Zodiac
[5] Donnie Darko
[6] Prisoners

In terms of general movie recommendations --- Anything by Darren Aaronofsky, Stanley Kubrick and Paul Thomas Anderson

lol ok that's enough,

looks intense,
why not share what you found out?, because not everyone is going to bother to watch...

I know some traders, just don't have the mental disposition to endure something like this trailer, let alone the entire movie.

Yeah it is quite intense and certainly wont be most people's cup of tea. To be honest there's no way I could sum the movie up in a thread post without going through the whole movie in detail. After the movie, I watched a 25 minute youtube video explaining what the movie was about. Yes,...I watched a 25 minute clip explaining a 90 minute movie, lol

I think it would be a disservice to spoil the movie by explaining everything here and potentially ruining it for anyone that watches it.

ps. if anyone does watch it. Do not ruin it by googling the hell out of it first. Just watch it first.

@DarkPoolTrading

I am going to leave that one in the dark pool, as it were.....

I need me a Muppets, or Disney, or Cin-de-relli just to balance out all this reality

Truth is, I severely under performed in my university classification and I've had serious trouble dealing with this failure to achieve my goal. I've analysed why I didn't reach my potential and am certain it was due to four things:

[1] A lack of hard work
[2] Avoidant due to unhappiness and anxiety
[3] Taking a path my heart wasn't in
[4] Immaturity, irresponsible, laziness

I've translated my learnings into

[1] Work my ass off from now on, which I've adopted quickly
[2] Work on my happiness and issues, rather than ignoring and hoping they disappear
[3] Only commit to things that are in confluence with my heart
[4] I have grown up a lot since then, my poor results were a result of early big mistakes, in later years I did much better but it wasn't enough. These are things that have naturally improved over time, I'm more mature, more responsible and not lazy at all.

I know this journal is suppose to be focused on trading but strangely I feel that everything in my life is related to my success in trading.

Areas to work on:

[1] My trading performance
[2] My methodology, rules and plan
[3] My lifestyle and happiness
[4] Being disciplined
[5] Integrity and pride: Doing what's right

They are all linked somehow.

Cheers,
Looking forward to a new week of trading

5. I am growing into the best version of me
6. I am making my time count
7. I am honest with myself
8. I am good to those I care about
9. I know what unconditional love feels like
10. I have forgiven those who once hurt me
11. I take full accountability of my life
12. I have no regrets

Of course it is.

And if you weren't trading, everything in your life would be related to whatever else you were doing....

It's funny that way.

Market conditions & Volatility

Whenever I have gotten the chance to trade in the preceding years, it has always been in a time of large volatility. For instance I came back at the end of September and had a month of strong volatility in the index futures.

Thus, I am always having good results because I am getting lucky with favourable market conditions. Then the volatility dries up and I run out of opportunities.

Based on this, I am considering chasing the momentum and volatility, where ever in resides. Looking for optimum market conditions like trends.

List of markets that interest me

ZC agriculture
CL energy
ES YM NQ TF FDAX FESX NKD stock indices
6A 6B 6C 6E 6J 6S foreign exchange
GC SI metals
FGBL FGBS FGBM ZN ZB ZF bonds

Fear of commitment to imperfection

One thing I've learnt from my trading journey is that I have extreme difficult committing. This is a big realisation and basically applies to all areas of my life. I have a tendency to do nothing rather than settle for something imperfect i.e. I give it all or nothing and lack moderation. I need to apply imperfect techniques to an imperfect market, instead of searching for perfection and certainty. As Bob said, I need to practice my plan and evolve it proactively, not find/look for the perfect plan.

I have at least committed to a few truths/things/ideas (For personal future reference):

Futures, low time frames, price action + order flow, anticipation instead of confirmation, Discretion not automation, trading based on expectations of new money and puking, anticipating momentum.. trends and fading through monitoring energy, seeking low risk entries that allow me to know quickly when I'm wrong, trading at market structure extremes, placing limits early to get a good queue position at places I'm likely to fade, bailing as soon as I know I'm wrong, going with the path of least resistance, focusing on bigger average winners than losers, using a hard stop in every entry, being flexible once in a trade, trusting intuition, focusing on hotkeys and no hesitation -- letting go of missed opportunities, proving profitability of strategy on sim before risking real money, the importance of observation and deliberate practice of market depth and charts, the importance of a winning attitude and relaxed mind, not holding trades into economic releases, trading opportunities around economic releases, treating it as a business, the relation between discipline and success, honesty with ones self, evolutionary planning, the necessity for extreme patience as opposed to mastery of all markets conditions, flexible approach to whether to trade or not on a particular day, viewing trading as a competition and not a mathematical problem, anticipating what the most money is going to do.



Cheeeeers,

Turismo
