    if your trying to trade with 30K I would guess your not making much of a living at trading. Its a good number to start with, but thats it.

  3. Hey Joey,

    Isn't if funny how you have so many aliases that you actually wind-up talking to yourself on the very same thread that you, yourself created?

    For what its' worth, your alter-ego "Trend-Fader" told me that he had a $30,000 account.

    GET REAL.

    :D

  5. As if I am gonna tell some ex-trader Tudor Jones trader how much $ I actually trade with. Waggie asked me how much $ i trade with on Yahoo IM.. so i told him over $30k.. which is over the PDT. My exact amount is private and I dont think any trader with half a brain would give out that info to any wierdo over the net.

  6. It's not about 1 trade or 1 post or 1 thread. It's that some people just keep starting useless threads and eventually ruins the whole site. Not much better than yahoo or (siliconinvestor?)

  7. I'm not bashing someone that is putting on a trade.

    I, as well as several others on Page 1 and 2 of this thread are simply suspicious of someone's "methodology" that says that they have been successfully making money shorting the IWM Index using a mere 1% of trading capital stop loss. Ever notice that Trend-Fader never, ever starts a thread or a post about how he is LONG?

    Take a look at the IWM since early December of last year.
    Then tell me how many days you see a DAILY RANGE of over 1 full point and I will show you a $30,000 trading account with a 1% stop loss that no longer has any money in it!

    No matter how you slice it, the "methodology" that Trend Fader describes as an "Excellent way to Trade" cannot be further from the truth.

  8. Wait a second. Why is it useless thread. There are actually some people that on ET that ask me what my bias is??

    Just because u dont see any value here doesnt mean u can make a judgement for whole ET. I am not soliciting anything, i have no alterior motives of selling a service, no guru following... Just stating my bias and for other traders to see.. and perhaps stimulate an interesting discussion about it.

    Not get a bunch of crap from pikers telling me i dont know how to trade because i am shorting the spikes.

  10. No, you're getting crap because you're making an obvious newbie mistake by trying to call a top. Have fun going broke.
