No video today, just a big “Thank You” to all the watchers, listeners, lurkers and contributors to Emini-Watch.
I must admit, I’ve been all over the place in the last 2 months. So many projects to do and ideas running around my head. Do you ever get like that?
I’m sure you do. I’m looking to get to the next level, the next version of the indicators, a more structured approach – dare I say, systematic and simple. We’ll see.
But in the meantime it’s great to see that a little blog like this one can make a difference. This last week it seems like I got more emails than usual saying “Thank You”.
Well, I just wanted to say “Thank You” back.
I know I can be a really grumpy old bastard sometimes – Ever got one of those emails from me? Sorry about that. – But comments like these make the blog all worthwhile.
The financial world is “going to hell in a handbasket” but goddammit, I’m going to survive, thrive and prosper. And I want you to as well. So “Thank You”, heads down and back to work.
Karl M. on Amateur activity last week:
“Today I could hear your teachings in my head twice. First when market was weak on open (from amateurs waking up scared shitless), then when it raced toward 1645.
I was saying this is going to be another one of those fake-outs where market is pushed up just to pull in the amateurs that want to go long on breakouts or have stop loss orders just above the pivot highs.
Trading is so much easier to me now that I have started thinking about how the market can hurt the most number of people. Thanks for your help.”
Chris A. on trading Crude Oil:
“Barry have you looked at Crude on the 500-1500 and 4500 tick bar chart! After another great day with the ES I picked up a second big trade at 2pm with the CL! lined up on the better charts perfectly.”
Matt S. on the hard work required to become a trader:
“Love your site, indicators and your tireless effort to help us learning traders. After over 18 months working with them full time, and developing and testing my own methodology, I am finally become a consistently profitably trader. Hardest thing I have ever done, that’s for sure. Don’t think I could have done it without your tools and your guidance.
I particularly love the way you are so honest about how hard it is, you don’t often see that from a vendor. It set me on a realistic course of working my guts out at this and progressing from testing, paper trading, refining testing, mistake correction etc etc. I have found its just brilliant to be able to log my trades, do my post trade review then compare my entries to yours the next day. I really, and truly appreciate it.”
Philip M. on how some simple indicators can give you an edge:
“Many thanks for making your ‘Better Indicators’ available. I won’t profess to fully understand them as yet (I have had them for about a month) but the difference in my trading results, even with my possibly inept style – has been remarkable.
It has been said before – but the best money I have EVER invested in my trading en-devours.”
From Ralph who made my wife laugh with this one:
“I often wonder why a financial institution has not grabbed you yet. Your clear and logical thinking is unusual and refreshing. Keep up the good work.”
And lastlly Chris G. in Australia who made a great call (with his chart):
ASX300 with dirty End of Trend signal (daily)
“Just wanted to show u a pearler of a chart. Asx300 daily. PB to dirty EOT and a perfect better momentum setup before the fall.
I put both mine and my girlfriends super into cash on Monday of last week and went short the spi on the break of that blue pro bar on the right shoulder. Cleaned up this week 🙂
And they say u can’t pick tops and bottoms. I say BS, u just need the right tools and alot of patience.”
Good luck with your trading.
