    Strictly between you and me, SOES doesn't even stand for Small Order Execution System, as you might very reasonably have imagined: it was just a typo for "shoes" (or so I've been led to believe).

    I don't think that is it. If that were true than it would be "SoesWereBetter", and I do not take him/her to be that bad at grammar.

    The mystery continues!

    Soes, you're so amazing. Please spare us 30 seconds to tell us whether you were born this great or did you become this great? You're doing a wonderful job and we all tremendously appreciate you.

  8. Do you average a 40% return every business trading day? or even just averaging 10%...or even just 5% o_O

    ...I'll be gentle and you even average 2% every business trading day?
    I'll be really friendly, do you average 1% every business trading day,

    If not, you ain't no Extraterrestrial Trader, ET
    The 1% have to be able to generate, on average, atleast 1%, entire account-wise, every business trading day.

    Amateur hour is reddit and stocktwits and collective2 traders.
    High-Five`...Pekelo, and vanzandt and Sweet and Sour Bobby, and Karen the SuperTrader

    I can't wait till HTC Vive Pro comes out. so i could play games in VR, and surf the web in VR, and look at porn in VR and trade in VR

    Before I started trading, I worked in an office of lawyers, economists, accountants, and engineers. During the late '90s, discussion of the financial markets was rampant. (Much of it was 'work-oriented', to be fair, but a lot was more for fun.)

    At one point, a contest was started, to settle who had the best handle on All Things Wall Street. Conditions were $100k fund, $20/trade, prices from WSJ prints of prior day's close.

    I KICKED ASS. How?? Well, I put a nice little portfolio together -- well proportioned in sectors and sizes -- a thing of beauty. And promptly lost $10k-$15k. That was not fun. Two guys took the "Throw A Dart At The WSJ" route, and bought a stock just before it split -- that put them so far ahead that for the entire remainder of the 'game,' the rest of us were fighting for second.

    I got second. How?? After my ridiculous, Bus.School-correct beginning (and drubbing), I kept noticing that the WSJ blurb of "Top 10 Best Performers" and "Top 10 Worst Performers" kept swapping names -- that the best performers for Tuesday were equities that I'd seen in the Worst Performers list for Monday. "Ah-HA!"

    So, I shopped the Top 10 Worst Performers list every day, did 5-10 minutes of research on each, looking for those who were likely to Dead Cat Bounce, bought 'em, and sold 'em within 48 hours. Some 0.00%s, some -10%s, but vast majority were +25%-+50%. Kicked ass.

    I've not looked at any of Soes' trades, but I wonder if his are not unlike what I did on paper:
    "Detritus Fund" (after The Dreyfus Fund)
    "Neptune's Own" (After Newman's Own)
    "Scatophagus Fund" (cuz, hey, there's always a meal around)
    There were some others.
    But this is where I put Soes' trade posts. I haven't looked into the feasibility for years. Not so much a *cash* thing as a *time* thing. It was great fun, though. I wonder if it still occurs. Maybe call it Mortuus Cattus? Dunno.
