Yes, a nice one, Suri. Btw, I also came across this nice page, which was one of the places I began my research.

 

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.

    • o btw it’s inauguration day welcome to north venezuela
    • Date : 20th January 2021. Morgan Stanley – Still the best Equity Trader?Morgan Stanley is set to report its fourth-quarter 2020 earnings before the market open today. Morgan Stanley is a leading global financial services firm providing investment banking, securities, wealth management and investment management services. Hence similar to the previous three quarters of 2020, the coronavirus pandemic, along with the US presidential election and vaccination breakthroughs clearly impacted the Morgan Stanley report and weighed on markets sentiment especially as in the 4th quarter the second wave of pandemic looks to be even stronger than before. The virus spread created chaos in financial markets that impacted the value of loans, investments and trading assets, and significantly reduced interest income and investment banking fees.However, fiscal stimulus programs and ongoing monetary support are expected to have helped client activity bounce back in H2 of 2020, leading to heightened volatility. Therefore, today we could see something similar to the JPMorgan report. Morgan Stanley’s equity and fixed income markets revenues are expected to have improved. Additional reasons that could support a positive reading today are the near-zero interest rates and the Federal Reserve’s bond purchase program, as these is likely to have aided Morgan Stanley’s debt underwriting fees, which account for more than 50% of their total underwriting fees. Also, global M&As spiked in the 2nd half of 2020 due to restructuring. Hence Morgan Stanley could benefit from advisory fees incomes.Nevertheless, according to Forbes and Zacks, Morgan Stanley is expected to earn $1.29/share on $11.08 billion in revenue. This would represent year-over-year growth of 7.5%. Meanwhile, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenue is projecting net sales of $11.28 billion, up 3.88% from the year-ago period.   Technical Analysis It has been an interesting year for US company shares. Morgan Stanley hit a yearly high of $91.31/share in 2020 while currently trading within the $75-77 territory. The share price is on course for the best performing quarter in Morgan Stanley’s history, since it is a breath away from the 161.8 Fibonacci extension from November’s rally. From the technical perspective, the stock’s outlook is currently bullish however some consolidation has been noticed since December 2020 on the overbought performance seen in the 2nd half of 2020. The price is positioned well above the 200 Day Moving Averages and 50 Day Moving Averages.The stock is prone to big moves after reporting earnings and could easily gap up if the numbers are strong. Conversely, if the numbers disappoint, the stock could easily gap down.Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

Kiss my motherf***ing a**.” Madonna: “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA): “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up, and if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they are not welcome. Anymore. Anywhere.” Gov. Andrew Cuomo: “He can’t come back to New York. He can’t. He’s gonna walk down the street in New York, forget bodyguards, he better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York.” Kathy Griffin:   pic.twitter.com/HG3wwVO8hm   — Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) November 4, 2020 Rep.

I believe there would be widespread civil unrest because Americans understand that the rule of law is paramount.” Johnny Depp: “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? It’s been a while, and maybe it’s time.” Big Sean: “If you put this round my neck, and I might just kill ISIS with the same ice pick that I murdered Donald Trump in the same night with.” Nancy Pelosi, again: “Sunday morning. I just came from Mass, but nonetheless I’ll just say this. If you’re in the arena, you’ve got to be ready to take a punch. You got to be ready to throw a punch, for the children.” Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT): “Even in states where Donald Trump won big, that it does you any good running away from Donald Trump. I think you need to go back and punch him in the face. " Rep. Cynthia Johnson (D-MI): “So this is just a warning to you Trumpers. Be careful. Walk lightly. We ain’t playing with you. Enough of the shenanigans. Enough is enough. And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right. Be in order. Make them pay.”   ... guilty by their own standards yet ?
