Ha! Are you judging my age by my picture or immature trading methods?

Totally by the picture (thanks for the updated one), your methods appear sound and seem to fit your active family/working lifestyle very nicely. I envy your programming skills, as I'm sure many on this forum do. I believe you've found yourself a nice workable niche in your trading that allows you to enjoy all aspects of your life, that alone is a great accomplishment. I'm intrigued to witness your method unfold to the next level. Sorry to hear the news of your wife, I'm sure her/your concern is incredible. If I may, I'll offer two suggestions, one for you and one for both of you. For you, stop trading, for awhile anyway. And lastly, even if you don't believe in a mass/universal consciousness, act as if you do during the coming weeks. You will certainly have a mass of people from around the globe, wishing your wife, you and your children a positive outcome to all the events your family is about to endure. Probably, someone somewhere throughout the course of every hour around the clock, how comforting.

wow thanks for your kind words! we are religiously active Christians (Mormon) and are getting lots of spiritual and physical support from all around us. though, i just got hit with a bad case of carpal tunnel this weekend so i'm not very useful with my injured hand in terms of helping her or getting much programming / trading / researching done so i guess we're getting a double-dose of mortality reality this month. all we can do is press forward and hope for the best! since this is a trading journal and not a pity-fest, i'm going to continue trading but only automated, which is all i do anyways right now so i'll just keep doing what i have been doing and let the predetermined historical probability of success of each setup take its course.

Speaking of my wife, she's going in for surgery this Thursday for treatment of breast cancer, which she was diagnosed with last month, so I could use everybody's thoughts and prayers.

Will be thinking of you and your family, positive thoughts coming your way.

Mike

My wife is doing great, the surgery went really well, it appears the cancer has not spread to her lymph nodes so odds of being cancer-free are very high! Now she just needs to rest and recover and do some more post-op treatments but the hardest part is over.
