I met MO himself 6months into my trading "career" and spent a lot of late nights chatting with him online. I figured I had the master here, I'd just pick this stuff up by osmosis. Well a whole lot of heartbreak 8 years later and here I am. I never posted or followed the threads, it was always too difficult, I was chatting with MO direct on google talk every night and spending every second of my life looking at price action. Surely I couldn't fail. LOL. We'll here I am, 34 years old, 2 beautiful kids, a wife, a career, adulthood. Been ruining my life for a long *censored - swear word* time, failing.
I just re read the Never lose again thread and I realize where I took the wrong fork almost right away. I did that because of v8 posting in my thread and then I went through every one of his posts. More than the knowledge it was the attitude, it was the kick in the butt I needed. It was making these threads work. Now I go through these things and I'm like "Duh", I don't know what changed. I guess I was out of options. It was either this or get my head out of the clouds. Some people have said a lot of things about you V8, but I choose to believe. Never got good advice from those people anyway.
Ha, this post turned into something crazy. I was originally going to give a hurrah and tell Newark18 I had just setup an account with Traders way and that I was excited for the future.
I still got to deal with the fact that I've got a job and am the sole breadwinner so I don't have a bunch of time to participate here, but its all here and I'm going to spend every spare second I have reading and understanding, answering the questions for myself and with the help of the Kreslik folks. Thanks again. Good luck and good trading.
This post is *censored - swear word* awesome and makes me glad Ja and I started this thread. First can I say how freaking awesome and jealous Iam you got to shot the s**t with MO on a nightly basis. Second, isn't it funny rereading threads and idea's just hit you like a sack of bricks and you think to yourself how the hell didn't I realize that before. Now re read 12 more times in 2 years and you will still be saying the say thing. Im glad you got that from me.
"then I went through every one of his posts" I feel honored you did that just keep in mind most who know me say Im bi polar and can flip flop on an idea more then Donald Trump. So any post older then 6-12 months (really any post outside this thread or 3 months old) I would put little weight in what I said. " More than the knowledge it was the attitude" exactly. The knowledge I have and present is preschool MO, I would say I offer more in the mental aspect of trading or "attitude". "Some people have said a lot of things about you V8" s**t I always thought I was my hardest critic, what the F are people saying about me. Haha I don't care and honestly don't want to know. Im sure I have annoyed, angered and pissed off a lot of people and honestly I never meant to.
'I still got to deal with the fact that I've got a job and am the sole breadwinner so I don't have a bunch of time to participate here" The more I take trading from a top down approach htf to stf, the more I realize the less time you really need for trading.
Feel free to post and ask whatever you want in this thread.
