  1. Hi Dun, Re. Cotton, I don't see the extremes in the net positions, as they are getting near to zero. By "relative cot extreme" , do you mean the cot index ? Thanks
  2. Make sure your stop is in place, things happen...
  3. Explanation / reason of last night move, any one?
  4. Predictions ... One of the major dangers of prediction is that the ego gets involved and the analyst finds it difficult to admit he/she may be wrong, even in the presence of considerable evidence to the contrary. Being wrong in our predictions is something that few of us can tolerate very well! This is especially true when we have made public forecasts and have used considerable persuasion to get others to believe in our predictions. It is always just a matter of “you wait and see – I’ll be right soon enough” W. Clay Allen, CFA
  5. Cos the trend is his friend till the end when it'll bend
  6. I will be closely monitoring the Head & Shoulders I see on my tick chart, with target 1270 if neck broken. December futures contract.
  7. Oh! You mean I cannot trade well with only this volume profile that is on my charts? I thought volume is of more weight that time in assessing the direction of an instrument.
  8. Great job, Sir, and nice software. What is that? How do you decide which to follow when there is a great divergence between the mode and the poc ? Cheers!
  9. "Other investors are convinced that they can predict the future, and I believe that's where our profits come from" John W. Henry
  10. Never mind the resident Little pretender, he forgot to put stop loss...
  11. "Anything I have ever done that ultimately was worthwhile, initially scared me to death". Betty Bender Any trade...
  12. Anyone know what might be the best gold (inverse) correlation for the now ? USD? CHF? AUD? SP500? BONDS/RATES ? OIL?
  13. You are right, Bob, the stop looks too short. But on my chart at that time, the previous low was that near. Take a look. Cheers.
  14. Limit buy @ 1365 stop @ 1363 profit @ 1375
  15. Any change in the draw down limit rule ? did we agree on the10%?
  16. These EW'ers can't be serious. Where does the count start? where does it end? Again, so easy from the right edge backwards.
  17. Always easier to make the call one week later...
  18. Bravo the winner! Hope to join in march again. Cheers !
  19. So JP Morgan said you need an astrologer. Lol... reminds me of this "grand tradeur" I once saw on a french program asking his astro what the charts were saying
  20. In comparison, Don Jones' training is 800 for 8 months, material and 15 minutes weekly Q&A session included. Looks like not many people in here have gone thru it. The web site might not be very glamorous, but the content is sound. Only con for me so far is if one must work but with their proprietary tools .
  21. Golg FUTURES flash crash explained Nanex ~ 06-Jan-2014 ~ First Gold Halt of 2014
  22. What is your best MP indicator for MT4? For Ninja ? Thanks
  23. Talking of real life trading, I recently took part at Topstep Traders' combine. I managed to take the start capital of 50.000 to a bit less than 52.000 in 20 days, but was eliminated nevertheless. Why? because I had traded in 3 products and was net loser in 1 of them. Beside this criteria of being positive in all the instruments you freely choose to trade, you must abide by additional ones : -daily loss: 1000 max, -overall drawdown: 2000 max, -overall winning days: 55%. After that you might get funded after scrutiny by the team. 2000/50000, that is 4% max DD! Hopefully we can find some inspiration there. I think Ingot also once alluded to the question in a post on this thread or the discussion one . What I've learned is that real trading is about consistency: small losses, small gains and a few big profits that you let run to make your week/month/year. My 2 cents.
