I have been a great follower of you since last few months and I simply love the forum, your site, your daily reports and most importantly your intra-day signals.

I have made some huge losses and was put off. Since I have been following you, I have learnt the first thing advocated by you - (Survive first, if you don't make money, don't loose money) and I am happy to say though I have not made any, but more importantly I have not lost any.

Now I am starting to work on the other point you advocated - don't rush and control emotions (Not sure how long will that take!). A while back someone did a nice commentry on controlling emotions in trading.

It would have been very disrespectful to not login and say 'Happy Thanksgiving' to you and all the other Forum Memebers, who provide such an insightful commentry and charts. I wish I could rub shoulders with them one day (may be after few more thanksgiving anniversaries).

Happy Thanksgiving all and really appreciate such a selfless, hard work from you all and especially Cobra.

PS: I have registered for regular donation few days back and hope don't need to do anything after the server move. Good Luck with that.

What number on SPY will make you change your avtar :)



"don't rush and control emotions" (Not sure how long will that take!)

this idea about controlling emotions can lead to sorrow. consider 2 points (1) the logical mind is like a small raft in the ocean of "emotion". (2) if this doesn't appeal to you consider that most people estimate the mind you are aware of is maybe 5-10% of brain and cns function. (note the mind--a construct and brain the organ)

so if something is larger than you how do you "win" for starters you admit it--and then start to watch it's patterns. think of this like hunting. the working assumption is you cannot actually see your habits they are like the blind spot in your life. however it's possible to see the action around them--and thus by subtraction see a rough outline of the habits.

this is about as close as we get to control ourselves.

just my opinion but i would do 2-3 things--first if you are intra day trading futs read al brooks--being forced to look at 200 charts with more or less the same message will teach very quickly. second forget trading for money for a while--get money out of the picture--and focus on paper trading. get to the point where you are hitting 7 out of 10 trades in whatever timeframe or method you use. Third keep track of these trades-- prior to getting in--after you get out--and tracking what you may see as emotion pre during and after the trade.

after that scale up to tiny amounts of money--then build up slowly.

most people refuse to do this under the assumption that they are not really trading--but seals train for some time prior to going to the field and they scrape by. second you may think this is the slow way--i assure you it's much faster in the longer run.

get a clear rule set--and then look carefully at the beginning emotions and feelings can be a problem--later (usually much later) you can trade intuitively.


Thanks Taggard,

Much appreciated. I have some rules, printed and fixed to wall and now 50% of the time, before making a trade, I go through them.

This post will be printed and looked at more often than not.

I will get the book and get cracking.

Happy Thanksgiving.

LOD close across the board. Closing TICK wasn't too bad though. Cobra started the day saying that the selling looked orderly. It still looks fairly orderly, well, until the close it did anyway.

No holiday in Canada. Our Thanksgiving is in October. We have the Grey Cup game on Sunday, which is a national drunk and our equivalent to the Super Bowl Game. People come from all over Canada to the game held on Sunday at BC Place in Vancouver. The stadium was renovated completely at a cost of C$563 million and re-opened in September. Capacity has been reduced to 53,500 as a result of wider seats, all with cupholders. The roof was replaced with a retractable roof and the big screen is the 2nd largest in North America, next to the one in Dallas. The game pits the BC Lions against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Probably too cold and wet for a riot after this game, lol!

SPX: I have to switch to the following count

Once a bootom is finally in place it can be either a Bullish wave (C) or a bearish wave (3)

The overlap is at 1215.57

Have a great Thanksgiving holiday
