Letâs get a few things straight. I am a not a particularly successful trader, nor am I all that bad, so donât expect to learn a lot from me. 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, and sometimes the NQ â it all depends on my mood. 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 in what I post, and why you should read it. Well, you are going to find my unique way of looking at the market, and life itself. Sometimes you wonât understand anything I say â it will just go over your head - 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. And with that, let the best damn journal on this board begin.
