Can't speak for everyone but I like to spend my holidays alone. I have a very intense independent streak and big crowd gatherings is definitely not my forte. All that holiday cheer annoys me more than anything else so I take myself out of the social picture, head to Vail Colorado (g.c.'s Gulch perso...

Family... Siblings... and their relations to trading?

I for one is the only child in my family. So I was brought up in many ways to think for myself with a loner type of existence. In more ways than one, this have helped me in as a trader. I am just wondering how many of you folks are the only child in the family and does this help or hinder your proce...

Cybertrader is pretty good. It does stock, options and futures. The advance option screen is pretty impressive and simple to use and understand. That is what I use. It is owned by Schwab. The drawback is that you have to meet some income and net worth requirements before they accept your money and a...

Helllo TradingCoach... Are you talking about an Individual Retirement Account? Because if you are, spreads are not allowed in many brokerage firms especially the discount brokerages. Only conservative option strategies are allowed --- covered call writing and mostly recently many firms allow naked p...

Freetrade.com by Ameritrade

Hello... Has anyone used or heard of freetrade.com? Their commission structure and model is very interesting. The only drawback is that all inquiries must be done thru e-mail and there is no live customer support to assist you if you have any questions or problems that need to be resolved. At the pr...

Sean... Hmm.. May I suggest The 48 Laws of Power and The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene to your arsenal? Maybe it is not that you know too much but that you have shown all your cards too early in the game? Like you I have struggled with looking for employment in this industry which was when I gra...

Which is harder for you folks?

To learn something new from scratch or to unlearn something and reprogram yourself to start over to learn again? For me it would be the latter because of having biases. To learn something which I think I already know is tougher since there are many psychological cognitive roadblocks in the unconscio...

Wow. You can handle a 30% drawdown eh? Good for you. Loss and profit is all relative anyways. Personally speaking I don't think I can handle that amount of a drawdown. A loss of 12% to 18% to me is excessive so I tailor my systems to fit my aversion for big losses. I would rather take a smaller prof...

How do you handle a huge drawdown?

I am sure this was asked before. Personally and philosophically speaking, it is not how hard we fall but how fast we get back up. Many traders have hit their lowest low whereby it will make one reconsider things. So... how do you guys handle it? Do you cut back your trading or take some time off fro...

Hmmm... Thanks c.f. for those two links. After taking those tests, I am an INTJ . No wonder my last annual review in my first and last job working at an online brokerage firm was so terrible. The word "arrogant" came up several times in the review... Maybe that was the reason why I got sick of it al...
