Ladies and Gentlemen,

I wrote this on another thread in answer to a guy who is tired of trading in isolation. I agree with him. Its no fun. Plus with 3 or 4 guys around you, your learning curve goes thru the roof and you enjoy your day even if you lose! Plus we all need someone to vent to on those bad days. Here is what I wrote. I welcome comments on the value of both trading alone vs trading in a group even if you aren't interested in forming a small team to trade live together .(Yeah, some of you will have to actually move. Isnt that terrible when you think of the reward waiting in 6-12 months down the road!) :

I feel exactly like you do. No, money alone is not the motivation I thought it would be to sit in a room by myself with no social interaction. Maybe the people on this board feel that way but most people wither and die by being alone all the time. I myself am on the cusp of developing the best day trading futures method in years of trading and surprisingly, I dont even feel like getting up in the morning lately. Im amazed. And yet, if I had a beautiful Latim woman who wanted to "get into " trading with me and would get excited about what was going on because I was her man and we did it together, everything would be wonderful regardless of how profitable the day turned out. We have to talk. Im trying on another board to get a group of 4-10 guys who want to trade together, maybe startiung virtually in a chat room online but definitely with the opportunity for us to move to one location and trade out of an office or house together. Yes, I would leave my home tomorrow to be where exciting, funny and warm people were all trading together. Question for the board: Do you think many of the market wizards from the book or the biggest hedge fund traders are sitting at home in their pajamas facing a wall with no interaction all day...for years and years, thruout their career? I doubt it. In fact I would bet that trading alone for years will make some of the winningest day traders go over the edge and do something very destructive via either drugs and alcohol, excess caffeine or bad trading. I agree with j trader that your mind doesnt function properly without human feedback. Forget the coffee fix, i tried that, and it works for a little while. Then what?

The only thing money is good for is to be with the people "YOU" choose to be with anyway. Personally, id like to see the culmication of my trading career end with me on a lovely caribbean Island with me in a hotel room I rent by the season where I look at beautiful girls of all shades and colors running across the beach every day and they all wave to that "mysterious stranger" who is sitting on his terrace doing 'somthing interesting" on his computer every morning. I could die and go to heaven right there. Even Warren Buffett has charlie Monger and office staff to interact with. Do all of you really want to do rich but get that way sitting in a dead, quiet neighborhood facing a wall every morning? I used to be a prop trader for Oliver Velez in Florida and loved going into the office and trade live with the moderator of the chat room right there. Nothing beats the learning curve and the thrill of victory than to have people around you to whoop and hollar when you just took off a 10 point trade or to ask a question when nothing goes right. ANYONE INTERESTED IN MAKING A TRADING ROOM AND THEN MAYBE INCORPORATING TOGETHER AND FORMING A POOL? OR JUST DOING OUR OWN THING BUT SHARING WHAT WE DO? Me-I just want to trade forex and naz futures until 11am and be done. And later add crude oil as its very expensive to trade that contract. Anyone interested? Im a middle aged guy from Brooklyn living in Delray Beach/Boca. We can form a team. One guy can do research, another print out all our trades for the day on charts, another listen to the news wires, another do programming for us. We could form the Berkshire Hathaway of daytrading "if" you are willing to get out of that safe little apartment. -)

If there is a private message feature on here, those with real interest please write to me besides posting here and tell me about yourself and your trading goals.
