piggybridges started this thread -300

Having all kinds of technical issues today so just a quick daily update.
No statement today, but a losing day of about -$300

Was up a few hundred this morning and was tempted to quit, as I always am when i'm up a decent amount on the day. Not sure whether its correct to quit for the day or not in such circumstances. To quit for the day sort of says that one doesn't actually think they have an 'edge' and are just happy to have made their money and don't want to push their luck.

This guy netted about 12 ES points today which seems quite typical for him. It's inspiring, but also terribly frustrating to watch someone kill the market on a daily basis! Called all his trades out in realtime as always. He trades quite big size too.
Must be nice to have the market as your own ATM machine!
