Learn your OWN trading techniques. Especially moves surrounding Fed events, Apple news, and general market trends -- such as the two day drop and two day recovery in the last few weeks.
You can actually loose as much as or more than you would gain if relying only upon Aeadmd's intermittent and delayed position notices. They're good, very good, for intraday moves -- exceptional really for catching intraday tops and bottoms, reversals and so on -- but, often by the time you can decipher his calls you could do just as well on your own. (And keep in mind they use 1 percent stops.)
Aeadmd is a GREAT teacher. But each of us needs to follow and develop our own style based upon our own personalities, temperament, and so on.
....Big Fan of yours of course Aeadmd! Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
Correction: HE DID!!!!
Sorry about that! There will be a lot of clean toilets.
I've also made a ton of money trading options.
Yes, I've lost a few times too with NYX. Bought on the dip, it kept going down, and the options expired. But I've doubled my portfolio because of Apple.
I'm waiting to see if this goes into the 150s. I don't think it's going there. Apple is basically trading sideways right now. Up in the morning on good news, the tails off near the end of the day.
Gappy, I know he has been on point. I just like to know the person I am going to take advice from. Everyone is a mystery on these boards. I will still use his calls bc he is great on Apple and his calls are not that mysterious, I would just like to know (as in a trader-friend) the guys or gals more as persons. (Do you get what I am saying?) That's all.
one other thing, mayanization, how do I know your not Aeadmd? Aeadmd seems like a really good guy, but those who try to help others on a public message board should not pretend to be 5 different people. Be who you are, and don't hide anything. I believe in honor and truthfullness above all else.
"I believe in honor and truthfullness above all else."
Then you will soon give your money to me. Be careful. The only honor in the stock market is your account balance and staying out of jail. Take it for granted: you are playing against people who (1) HATE YOU (2) are smarter, more experienced, and far better equiped to take YOUR money. This is not a game. This is not a get rich quick scheme. Rooms full of debauched EVIL professionals EXIST to take money from people like you and me. That doesn't mean we can't win, but it sure isn't a polyannish cakewalk. If you approach it with the expectation everyone will love you as a "person" you will be absolutely slaughtered. Wise up.
Good luck, "person."
Actually he did say looking for 167 plus yesterday, I know to decipher his calls (why he would post on YHOO message board to clients is beyond me - why not a private group) is a little ridiculous. I asked him for the codes to his calls says he cant give them to anyone (not very nice for traders trying to follow his calls - very wrong and yes actually hurts others more than helps - this is not right).
Nothing is ridiculous about the help he provides. It is perfectly understandable of course that he would not give YOU a complete stranger the ability to decipher his codes. He is establishing a reputation with clients. Not you. You only view him as a dollar sign. Who the heck knows what the views on life of a person with an alias named "Mario Fats" are...? Why in the world would he give you ANYTHING?
We are fortunate a professional trader posts here and shares his knowledge with us. We only need have a consideration for the general instruction of other traders, to help each other so that when we might need advice there will be a community to which we can turn. Exact calls are your own business.
That is why you are a trader.
And no Aeadmd was actually waiting for a lower entry point. He could have bought and held if his system had anticipated this pre-holiday pop. His codes change. I doubt you deciphered them. I'm very grateful he posts here.
