I there is anyone on this forum that is making money in this market you are smarter than I ever will be. In fact if you have figured out how to do it based upon the analysis that Turd's gives us, then I have even more respect. I was a buy and hold for about five years starting in 2002 to 2006. Stopped buying around 10.10 silver traded in 20 oz of gold and bought stocks in 2003. Have sat on most of them since. I don't need to do what you do, but would sure love to know how you do it. Problem is no one, not even Turd has presented a system that has a winning track record that I can observe on a daily basis, i.e. answer the following questions:
What did you buy?
When did you buy it?
Why did you buy it?
What kind of analysis did you make to arrive at your decision?
Did you employ any of Turd's analysis?
How much did you pay?
Was in an options?
Exactly what words did you use to your broker to describe the purchase when you made it?
What percentage of your dry powder did you use.?
What was the Expiration date of the option?
Did you sell before the options expiry of the contract?
Why did you choose to sell at that time?
Did you make a profit?
What percentage of your dry powder was the profit?
Did you lose on the trade?
What percentage of your dry powder?
Did your option expire out of the money?
Do you keep a running spreadsheet of your trades with profit and losses each day and percentage of dry powder.
I would need to see at least 50 to 100 consecutive trades to convince me that you in fact are a winner at this game.
Then, I would have to watch you in action on a daily basis for at least 25 to 50 trades before I would follow what you do.
All these financial writers never ever have given such an accounting, yet they want you to subscribe. I will never do it without the proof I need that they in fact can do what they say they can do. Sorry I am a die hard skeptic.
These are just a few of the questions I would have to have answered before I would even consider doing what you amazing people do. Obviously some of you are quite successful in the long run at this or you would not do it,, I guess, unless you are really just a bunch of gamblers.
Is anyone here willing to prove their skills by answering all these questions?
Frankly, when most of you chat with one another, I don't understand most of what you are talking about. I am sure there are many like me. You use a kind of cryptic language I have never been able to decipher completely. I am probably asking too much, but I will keep trying. Thanks !
