You may well be right on dax. I am more looking at the macro picture. I can hold, so it doesn't matter too much if I am wrong. I don't go all in, which leaves my reserves to make corrections when necessary.

That's what they say and what you hope. But the evidence so far suggests otherwise. It's more like: big risk = money gone.

brewski1984 started this thread To be fair though I haven't done bad. When you consider the amount of trades I've done and the value of them along with all the guaranteed stop premiums, the majority have been the right way and I actually haven't lost that much money (relatively).

Maybe you should give me your money. You may not even notice they are gone.

So you have plenty of hot money to get rid of ? Why not accidentally send me a stack and I accidentally do something with it ?

I am beginning to suspect you are in the employ of the bucketshops to entice other punters to follow.

brewski1984 started this thread If any bucketshops want to offer me a job I'll take it as long as I can work from home.

On that note I hope nobody is copying me unless they fully understand the risk of ruin is basically near 100%.

As you see, I don't copy you. You are long dax, I am short.

Just pull out another 200 from under your mattress should do the trick.

I still reckon this is not about gambling.
