Brill competition folks, to be honest I'm a little stumped how I pulled off a win ?!?!? Thanks for letting me have it ;-)
I'm a terrible example of a trader with bad habits. The main one which served me well is using other peoples analysis. The good spell mid year was when I had enough time to read the SP500 and Vix analysis articles on Investing.com's phone app (Live and futures) and scan twitter for general mood, potential moves and historical performance tweets (Chris Kimble, Ryan Detrick, Cam Hui humbelstudent, Strawberryblonde, Andy Nyquist to name a few favorites). Oh and of course Oscar's videos... Ok I've still got to pick a number, so eyeball a chart Sunday night and throw a dart - hardly a textbook predictor, but it worked!
Less time and less money last quarter but hey if markets closed wed night I'd of had it again, but glad that Atilla nailed another nuts week for a superb signoff to a well refereed competition!
