Another 3 popular trading blogs I found (judging by loads of comments) are:

Anyone remember that blog of the guy who built his account up to about $50k in around 2008, thought of himself as an expert then lost it all on one trade as the market tanked - It was a video... prime time comedy and a great example of what not to do.

 

Anyone know what I'm on about?

Without getting too heavy into shameless promotion, and having read many, many of the trading books/blogs out there over the years (the good and the bad), I will simply say I have outlined the way I actually trade the ES market in a new book called "Professional Day Trading and How to win.." (listed on Amazon) which among other things includes real trading examples/account statement verification, etc in an effort to show how "theory translates to actual trading results," so to speak, within realistic trading goals and expectations.

 

My goal was to write a book about trading from a "real traders point of view" that I have simply never seen presented in other books/blogs before, and so far I have received some very satisfying positive feedback to know that the material has been of use to others as well.

 

I would say if anyone is looking for a unique look into "one persons view of real trading," this is the type of book I have put together, and of course feel can be of use to traders...

I write a blog about building and programming Expert Advisors for MetaTrader. The blog jumps back and forth between the technical aspects like the pros and cons of the platform. I also try to cover the dos and don'ts of building an automated trading system. I've only been writing it for about two months, but I'd love to hear your feedback either here or on the blog comments.

 

Thanks,

 

Shaun

Here's a quote from "Scalp And Swing":

 

My Last Post For A While : Disconnected

Another max+slippage daily loser (smaller than yesterday). Feel disconnected with the crude oil. I have headache, confused, dozens stopped out,

 

Another one:

Farewell to all my friends

I never good on trading, never will.

 

 

@JimMM

 

It's really not helpful to post references to such junk blogs.

 

Please post only information that can be of help.

 

Everyone knows how to google for a blog.

 

 

If you send people off to visit such blogs you are stealing their time

and they will probably ignore your postings in the future.

The video is PAINFUL to watch! Does anyone know how he lost the cash? Was he averaging down or something?

 

He's trading the Russell 2000 futures (a favourite of day traders for its high volatility and low margin requirements) and I think its Jan 2008.

 

He's gone long on Friday, probably averaging down a losing position and decides to carry it over the weekend. Monday is a US holiday but Europe is trading and Europe tanks. Its one of those days when the Dow was down something like -500 intraday. After the event it becomes clear that SocGen triggered the collapse by unwinding the positions put on by its rouge trader into an already weak market.

 

Anyway - my votes go for Don Miller and MBAGearHead. Most of the others are good for comedy value if you want to know why 95% of traders lose.

    • XRPUSD Is Ranging Within $0.28 and $0.21 Levels, Awaiting a Breakout XRP/USD Market January 06 An increase in the bears’ pressure may penetrate the $0.21 level; the price may decrease further to $0.17 and $0.10. In case the support level of $0.21 holds, the price may reverse and the resistance levels of $0.28, $0.39, and $0.49 may be tested. Key Levels: Resistance levels: $0.28, $0.39, $0.49 Support levels: $0.21, $0.17, $0.10 XRP/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging XRPUSD is on the ranging mode in the daily chart. The coin is range-bound within the resistance level of $0.28 and the support level of $0.21.  XRPUSD started the ranging movement on December 30. The bears made an attempt to break down the support level of $0.21 failed due to low bearish momentum. Today, the bears try to penetrate the resistance level of $0.28 but the level holds and the price could not break it up. Ranging movement will continue until there is a breakout. XRPUSD Daily chart, January 06 XRPUSD is struggling to breakout at the two key levels but the levels hold the price. An increase in the bears’ pressure may penetrate the $0.21 level; the price may decrease further to $0.17 and $0.10. In case the support level of $0.21 holds, the price may reverse and the resistance levels of $0.28, $0.39, and $0.49 may be tested. However, the price retains its trading below 9 periods EMA and the 21 periods EMA, the former is below the later. The relative strength index period 14 is at 25 levels bending up to indicate a buy signal. XRP/USD Medium-term Trend: Ranging On the medium-term outlook, XRPUSD remains in the ranging mode. The bears’ momentum and the bulls’ momentum are at equilibrium within the $0.28 and $0.21 levels. The support level of $0.21 is resisting the bears. The bears lose their momentum and the bulls’ pressure is equally weak. The price results in consolidation within $0.28 and $0.21 price levels. XRPUSD 4 hour chart, January 06 The fast-moving average is interlocked with the slow-moving average. The price is hovering over the 9 periods EMA and 21 periods EMA which indicates that consolidation is ongoing. However, the relative strength index period 14 is bending up at 60 levels to indicate a buy signal.   Source: https://learn2.trade
