Hi Frog, Axthree, et al,

How goes it? I've been away the last week or so, and this thread seems to have gone a bit quiet. How have the fates been treating you?

I haven't felt inspired to stake too much on the markets just lately - partly through a lack of time and partly through a lack of confidence. I'm still lacking much of a system to pin my trading to, and in the absence of one I seem to take two steps back for every one forward :| . I am getting some tuition in a couple of weeks, though, so I'm hoping the fog may lift a little then.

Off to France for a few days on Saturday :cheesy: - can't wait. How's the weather down there at the moment Frog?

Calvin.

Hi chaps,
Been very busy despite my 2 weeks holiday.SWMBO has given me an unduly large amount of DIY to do.Won't go into detail as it's way off topic,except to say that the place I bought was built in 1700 and something!
Had an awful week again last week.3 of my 4 trades we're losers.As I previously said my sell rule is somewhat unreliable and I thank you Calvin for me dissecting my trading style/system as it has been quite an education.Still totally unable to put it into understandable English and if I do I shall probably sell it.(Have a look at the Vince Stanzione thread if you fancy an amusing non-constructive read.I think I've rattled a few feathers.)
Last week I ended up -36 points on the week and only managed that by having two bites of the cherry on Friday.
This week got off to a very slow start,+16 on Monday,+6 on Tuesday and -63 yesterday.Today so far is looking good but I am concerned that it could be week 2 sans ruby a sure sign of recession in my household.Wish I didn't have to rely on this meagre income for lifes' little pleasures as it plays havoc with my margin.If your feeling sorry for me you can contact me at my email with a view to large pecuniary donations :cheesy:
Anyhow no paragliding for me this week just a 4 hour walk.Tiring but breathtaking and a nice picnic à la Française absolutely delightful.
Must rush she's on her way home and I still haven't put up that bloody staircase.
Salut à tous
Frog

Yeah,it's been a couple of bad weeks but guess what?Sold earlier for +70 points and if you go further back into this thread I was doing ok.
On the whole I do enough,but have experienced a problem with the Dow at 300 as it seems to play havoc with my trading rules,but hey! these things happen and come along to test our resolve.
To counter this feeble run I've scrutinised my "sell" rule and sometimes abstain from it.
It's not 100% but it's more than 65% so I'll stick with it.
Thanks for your concern,will post my most recent trading with rolling gains shortly.
It's useful to look long term,though sometimes it may appear to be painful.
I think I'm probably about even for the last 2 weeks,not brill I grant you,but it keeps me in the game and it's something I enjoy anyhow.There's always plenty more for the taking later.
There's always a problem with round numbers.
Have a good weekend.
Cheers
Frog :)

Hi all,
Bloody quiet out there?
Do you like kebabs?
Hedgehog is delish, particularly when he can't tell north from south.
Wish I'd stayed at work and ignored the screen.
It's all Shrubs fault.
Bonne nuit(too much much vin I'm afraid)

Greetings y'all,

Back from my hols and all fired up to lose a bit more hard-earned cash. Well, you can't take it with you can you?! Actually I've been doing a bit of learnin' and drawing lines on charts, so I'm hoping to have a bit more success....we'll see.

How's everyone else been going. Been getting a bit of flak Frog? Everyone's a critic aren't they?!! Well I'm impressed with your methods even if not everyone else is! I had a read of the DW/VS thread as well- very amusing it was too.

well good luck frog , sorry to be so cynical about small wins and big losers , been there etc!!

Thanks Henry,
Need all the luck I can get at the at the moment as I am really having a "break even" run.
Didn't trade today not because I didn't want to but was trying to upgrade my internet connection from 512 to 2048(probably a blessing in disguise as it happens in view of the Dows performance) but failed miserably to get on the internet.
Then my 13 year old daughter comes home from school and,hey presto,by the time I got in the PC was all singing and dancing-maybe I could introduce her to trading?
Still the downside is 3 weeks without a curry and that's worse than giving up the fags but at least the local elixirs are easily within my grasp
Cheers
Frog

Salut Calvin,
Thanks for your support.I quite agree with your sentiments,some people do seem to take things far too seriously and rather too far.
How were the hols?Have had 2 weeks off myself for industrial weight diy and then a week off sick with a chest infection and more diy.
Got back to T2W tonight to be greeted by 105 new threads and 241 new posts,so loads of reading for me tonight.
My trading has been crap but when I get time I will post the damage to add ridicule to the pain that I am currently suffering :cry:
Back at work nights now plus I've just gone self-employed(no mean feat overhere)first job starts tomorrow(hope it's quiet tonight)so I may post the "frogs' foolish finances" tomorrow in the early hours.
Slowly making my way to the VS thread.
Ciao for now
Frog

Simple mais content :devilish:
