What we really need to do is move to the same city, and have something of a trading floor. Man that would be fun as well as productive I think. Full P/L transparency, daily meetings with process goals for accountability, etc.

Brian and I will meet you in NashVegas on Monday morning.

I hate vegas.....nothing to do there for a fine upstanding citizen such as myself....how about sunny San Diego....my favorite city in the world?????? Short drive for me, short flight for you guys!!!!

Nice to see you back Mr. Black

NASHvegas is a term lovingly used to describe Nashville, TN

I'm in for San Diego. Not a joke.

I can't believe I haven't worked up the gumption to take these trades until recently. They appear to be
golden in the ON range

Buy or Sell Stop BO orders.

I'm not a big fan of taking these as they leave the ON range, but for BO's of the little consolidation areas
on the "inside" of the ON range they work.

I always wondered why price always broke so hard after leaving these areas. Why? Lot's of people
have stops in and other traders are getting out that were the other way . Instant explosion .

Now, while I still strive for the perfect entry at the bottom / top of the swings by placing
limit orders at wicks or small range / doji bars at the best price possible on my DOM VP , I now have
a "backup" BO stop order placed also ....

This makes an instant 2 car setup with minimal initial risk to see if I am correct on the reversal or at least one
if the my perfect order is not filled .

If I miss it all at the "source" of the swing, the stop orders work well for getting in / adding in as price
breaks through my favorite land marks as it move back across the range. (daily pivots )

If little or no resistance is met on this move across the ON range, I will have the confidence to take the
dreaded BO of on ON range.

Love it !!!!

I am now, a 2 trick pony

Well, I timed the move to an office perfectly ...

The week of a historic freeze.

My beater car froze to death and is dead in the parking lot... only been home once this week when the
wife came and got me in the 4X4 .... I had her drop me back off and I've been here since...

I ain't getting my 5.O Stang out in this salty crap.... I'd rather walk the 10 miles, if I had to

Really looking forward to this weekend

What a hoot .....

It is all worth it for the solid broad band, however. No regrets
