Welcome to âTrading with Mister Xâ Letâs get a few things straight. I am a not a particularly successful trader, so donât expect to get tips or advice from this journal. But even though I am not all that successful, I donât want any tips or advice from you. My trading style is what it is â and it is not for public consumption. So donât go asking a lot of questions, because I wonât answer them. The equipment I have, the software I use, and the data feed I subscribe to are none of your concern. My age, my background, my location, and any other personal information is just that â personal. All I will tell you is that I trade the S&P 500 E-Mimi contract. Lot size, targets, objectives, and the like are my business â not yours. I am not looking to be your friend, your best buddy, or your newest pal. Donât e-mail, or PM me â I wonât reply. Keep your opinions, assessments, and critiques to yourself - maybe you know what youâre talking about, and then again, maybe you donât. Donât waste your time trying to figure out if I am someone else, or if I used to be someone else. I wonât address the issue. So with that out of the way, you may ask what can be found here, and why you should read it. You are going to find my unique way of looking at the market, and life itself. Sometimes you wonât understand anything I say. At other times you will see yourself in my posts. But you will be compelled to follow along. Any resemblance to previous journals is purely coincidental. I may mimic, copy, or parody earlier threads just to throw you off, or just because I want to. Some of you may find much of what I post to be humorous. Some will be offended. Still others just won't get it. I wonât be crying on your sleeve looking for sympathy. Nor will I pretend to be guiding you down the path to success and profits. Sometimes I will poke fun at myself â sometime Iâll poke fun at you, maybe even by name. And I will surely be commenting on other journals, as I see fit. And with that, let the best damn journal on this board begin.
