Anticipating the videos with 10+ nuggets. I can hardly wait for those.

Thanks Horst for the 10 Nugget Video. I feel relieved. I couldn't hold it much longer.

Didn't trade yesterday, Monday. Went out to celebrate a birthday with some friends Sun. night and lets just say too much wine was involved.....made note to self many trades ago......when the head is pounding, don't be trading.

Got up early to find something and then was headed to class. I think Silver is my new friend

1 trade 10 nuggets.


You couldn't hold it in......Good man

Thanks Horst, great job on Silver the last few days. You had me laughing during yesterday Silver trade when you kept putting up the Internet times. I kept thinking Horst is trying to prove to the skeptical ones that he is doing this live. I got a feeling most of them will just have another issue with your trading journal. Hard to change the closed-minded bunch, they would rather see inconsistency and losses and than you will have made some new friends.

Keep up your journal, I know that it is helping me and I am sure others who are more open-minded.

Thanks,
Steve L

Couple of questions, and accepting you have a "proprietary system", which is a croc....,

Traded the DAX and 6E this morning. Everything was going according to plan until my internet went out for a while (I think). I didn't feel comfortable trading anymore until I get a chance to double check whatever issues I was having. Lagging internet is my suspicion but I will look into it further. Anyway, I entered 2 trades DAX and 6E..... 6E returned around 3 nuggets and the DAX approx 1 for a total of 3.9 nuggets.

Probably just a Java Applet feed issue is my guess. Good work today. Didn't get a chance to trade this morning as new time change and it has been getting hotter at night so harder to sleep at 9pm. haha...

Well unfortunately, that is a cop out...so you are not prepared to offer any traders any guidance from your worthwhile experiences related to leveraging...

Disappointing...

You have a funny way of encouraging transparency. Insults and accusations are wonderful methods of getting what you want.

You call his system a "croc". Why? Is it because he paid for it? So what. It works. You think he's lying about trading live? So what, he's showing his trades via video. They work. That's enough. If they work on sim, they work live. You don't like his response to how he sizes his trades, so what, its his journal and he can respond how he likes. So far he's treated you with a measure of dignity, something which you have not afforded him.

There is a huge bias against paid systems here on the forum. This is partly due to the nature of the beast. Charging for something that may work for the creator seldom works for the student. One really must make the system their own before trusting live money to it. Otherwise you'll just jump around like so many others have done. Horst seems to have done that.

Leave the man alone already. He is not advocating others buy the system, he is not condemning others who do...(something you may wish to emulate) he is providing a clear visual of what successful trading is all about. Will everyone trade like him? Of course not. Just because he doesn't trade like you does not mean he's not successful. It means he's different. I suspect he's even different from you in the making money department as your comments smack of jealousy more than a serious attempt to understand.

If I had my way, I'd ban you today.

Second!

There have been a few people that have been critical of Horst's "system" that he uses - but I have yet to see him try to sell it, push it on others, or even try to convince people that his system is better than others. He has been patient with everyone who is being overly critical of him - something that I probably would have handled differently. He is neither condescending or rude towards anyone else here. Did you go to college? That's technically a system as it teaches you how to do something. You could very easily have skipped college and learned things on your own but either way you look at it, it's still technically a system (extremely overpriced too). Horst has built the experience and the intellectual know how to be successful at his trading. Let others enjoy this journal without the unnecessary negativity.
