New here, as I've said, with no pre-formed biases. FWIW, here's my take on this this- so far:
Beyond the typical dick-measurin' and other nonsense can hijack or derail serious comments from those with something to offer, here's my own short list: AFJ Garner ("It pays to take care who you listen to," aka Anthony Garner, who wrote A Practical Guide to ETF Trading Systems
& started the thread. I also like that he doesn't promote promote promote - seems low-key on that, like Tim Knight over at www.slopeofhope.com
). Also, JezLiberty, TSGannGalt (great stuff, foil for Garner, can get snarky, but let it pass- he's worth it, I think), ssb11, Jack Hershey ("My frame of reference is only 50 years of active trading. I am not a person who considered the buy and hold orientation. Instead I have just focused on one thing. I call it "taking the market's offer" and, for me, it is THE measuring stick of how well one can do."), .. there are a few others, kiwi trader, plyka, Muskoka Joe, et al but these don't post much in this thread.
Quote from TSGannGalt:
Is this guy on crack? What's his deal with the Hari Krishna vibe and suddenly becoming Mike's shrink? Can anyone actually read his posts? This guy's writing to himself, making jokes? and replies to his own question. (Do we have a new jack hershey??? )
Getting passed his delusional tone... What's interesting is he's trying to achieve some enlightenment and selflessness through trading with his Zen way... but he claims that he wants to trade within his comfort zone and willing to discuss one's particular situation, personal objectives, and psychology.
Can this guy be a multiple alias troll? He seems to know how to use the vBcode well...
"It pays to take care who you listen to" as I mentined in my short list of those I heed (you are on it) was AFGarner's remark about one Sluggo over at
Note that you in my own short list. (Maybe you know something about Jack Hershy that I don't, but he's on it too) As for me, what you see is what you get. I am a new trader, and even newer to this forum. In short, a Noodb, A nobody. A No-man (watchit, Cyclops!). I am not a multiple-alias troll. And I don't know who Ellsworth Toohey is, Mr Mike. Sheesh. Lighten up folks!
TSGG, if you really must know, I'm at LAX right now. Look for a bald guy selling flowers and giving away books with funny pictures in them. Never mind those tics and dart-eyes - it;s all good. Just trying to get enough scratch for one more dime balloon! Can't ya help a brother out? ;-)
No secret identity folks. Move on, nothing to see here ... Have they gone now? Okay then,
Up, up, and away!
