    Say across a span of 100 trading sessions, is it possible for a master ES daytrader to consistently capture one-half of the daily range after costs with a low risk of ruin?

    Please share your thoughts on the possibility.
  2. 3x the daily range son.
  3. Just 3x? :confused:

    6x to be considered a pro with the guys that I trade with.
  4. You trade? Last I heard when the market opens you leave to go grocery shopping and get your nails done. When the mkt closes you are back at your desk :cool:

  5. LOL, and I still made enough to scare your weak ass away from posting your blotter against mine ... heh.

    Wha a Jackass :D

    P.S. The offer is still on the table, putz. :cool:

    Check your PM's dipstick.

    There's definitely a Top Gun moment going on here. Sexual tension is as thick as Slider's johnson.
  7. I just *knew* I'd seen a sexual tension picture somewhere:

  9. R. Raskolnikov took a job as fluffer the last time he blew out his account ... that's probably where you're getting it from.

    But it's completely one-sided ... unless there's something going on between you and him that the rest of us don't know about. :p
  10. 3x ATR is good if its like your first week trading.

    as mandlebroset said, 6x is good once you're past novice level.

    i have a blackbox system running on ES, NQ and 6B that pulls 27x, 25x, and 15x ATR, respectively). Unfortunatley im only able to trade 50 ES cars at a time which limits my daily P/L (after commissions) to around $75k. Everything is automated so i just sit back and watch my account grow while i drink $20k wine and read Trader's Monthly. Sometimes tho when the weather is nice i'll go out and polish my Veyron instead.
