Hugh, great to see you here. I have been watching The Wire, which as you probably already know is set in Baltimore. I keep thinking of you out there. Happy Tuesday.

Wow! Thank Heavens! I have been begging Rob to check out The Greatest TV Show Ever Made (which is, “The Wire”) for a long time now! I’m so happy. Dreams really do come true.

TV fans out there: A very close second to The Greatest TV Show Ever Made: “Breaking Bad.” It’s not over yet, but I guess it has a chance to dethrone “The Wire.”

Sorry I don’t have anything useful to write about trading, Readers / Listeners, but if you’re reading this and you haven’t seen “The Wire” or “Breaking Bad” yet, then those two recommendations are my gift to you.

THIS is a sign I have on the door to my little cottage where I live. It gives most ppl, myself included, something to chuckle about. The only ppl who would give it a second thought, are those who might have nefarious and dubious ideals. The point I guess is that I dont give my stuff a second thought when I head out to my little job here and I dont give my trades a second thought either. They either are or are not gonna work. I love to put on a trade and add my stop loss and take profit specs and close my platform and go do whatever. It took me 5 yrs to learn on my own what you summerised in a 20 min rant. I love that. And I dont know if I suffer from turretts or if Im nuts or if my blood line is bad or if Im anal. When I started trading FX in Demo…I white knuckeled every trade and treated the account as if it were real. I always and still do. Dunno why. But… my greatest edge… perhaps Thee greatest edge in trading, is not finding a trade by whatever means…. but cutting the losses on bad trades. I have been better at letting the winers run (I’m a big Chicken) but I have no qualms of gettin out. Thanks Rob. You are one of the few from whom I listen. I no longer go to the chats or the news or read the clap trap. I just read my charts and I know I will be right or wrong. There is NO mystery. Percentages mean nothing to me and I know a lotta ppl look at their profit curves and all that stuff…I just read my balance at the end of the month and they are always up… When I divide the balance by 22 trading days / month…I sometimes cringe….But mostly I smile. You and Jason help me smile Rob. Thanxs to you both.
