F 1 D 0 -- 2001 11 24 at 16 15 So it is 415pm and I just told everyone I was leaving. I am still here, and I am still writing on the computer. I'm fully dressed. Today I am wearing a blue sweatshirt over a black tshirt. Over that I have black nylon jacket I use for everything, especially its pockets. Last night I was so tired. But it was good. I could have eaten a small elephant, but sufficed with half a platter of ethiopian meat over indura. Ari and Nathan were with me. Ari had so much to say, Nathan was almost mute, and me? I was taking it all in. Ari wanted me to understand that there really is very little to making money this way. 1. buy low. 2. sell high. 3. never forget commissions. Makes sense, right? Well, people panic, watching the moves of others. This makes people break their own rules. 4. watch trends. A trend has at least two points. He suggests watch the downward trend of the upper peak numbers, and the upward trend of lower peak numbers. This doesn't guarantee anything, but gives you a chance to follow something. 5. remember life In his case, he thinks life is a fibbonacci sequence. And that most things happen according to such a bell curve. .6 or something like that. He also thinks of life according to Gann, someone who applied a change to the original fib sequence: Orig: 0 1 2 3 5 8 Mod: 0 1 3 4 7 11 Someone figured out that this means upward trends have 5 straight lines before they go downward. And downward trends have 5 straight lines before they will turn back up. 6. remember people Don't trade during lunch, nor on holidays. Start around 930am, stop around 1130am. During those two hours, take no breaks. 7. shoot for small gains daily. 2.5% risk max per trade 5% risk max per day Making a few hundred dollars a day (net, after commissions) is the goal here. I'd love to convey more, but I'm late. I want to get the cider we use at the contradance. I'm the floor manager. That means I'm responsible for taking money, or finding volunteers to do that. I figure it is my turn. That's all I know.
