    Check out this trader's <a href="http://highprobability.blogspot.com/2011/02/i-quit-trading.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+HighProbabilityTrading+(High+Probability+Trading)">blog</a>. Does this post sound familiar:

    <blockquote>After 6 years of trading, I quit. I have several hundred comments waiting to be published, and I don't know when or if I will ever get to them. I'm quiting trading because I make the same disasterous mistakes over and over and I'm too stupid and stubburn to fix myself. I feel like a complete failure quiting trading at this point. I've spent thousands of hours in front of these computer screens trying to make a living, but it is all at a total loss because I can't manage risk well. Farewell traders!</blockquote.
  2. something doesnt smell right .

    guy posted all kinds of ats stuff, has a room, whatever.

    maybe he was long Fri and Kadhaffy rolled him over.

    seems like a publicity stunt
  3. You mean Gaddafi, right? :p

    Could be. Notwithstanding, do you think he's profitable? A profitable trader would not likely be engaging in publicity stunts.
  5. the guy was good with the mechanics of trading. it seems his trading lacked the edge.
