This is yet another entry in what must seem to ET to be an endless stream of irrelevant drivel about the psychological benefits of system trading. Sort of in the vein of the marketing strategy "If you can't fix it feature it." Take today, f'rinstance. It's futures rollover day. No news. You really don't want to trade fully expecting to be stopped out by erratic swings on a narrow range day. Especially with my REWMM system (pronounced like "rheum"). The acronym stands for Random Entry With Money Management. Not the highest expectoration system you ever saw. So how did I make my rheumy old self trade REWMM this morning? Mouthing the lotto motto mantra "You have to play to win!" wore off a long time ago. Rewarding myself with a trip to the range when I won hadn't been much of a reward the last couple of weeks. Then it occurred to me "Fuck it! I'll go shooting every time I LOSE!" Today was a great day at the range!
