Nobody wants to play Left 4 Dead II after drinks because a drunkard can't shoot straight and a drunkard who can't shoot straight is a shitty team player and a shitty team player gets everyone killed.

Through Hell & High Water

There's no obstacle a big ass hydro pump can't clear!

Nick, it's time to evolve.

Heard at the Office...

"There is no problem with the code or the model. After careful evaluation of your case, the problem lies between your chair and your keyboard."

"Outlook fucking crashed again??? I have to get out of here and get some water before this fucking computer flies like you've never seen birds fly."

Ooo Putain

Spent a few hours backtesting a strategy that looked good for the first two years of trading, and then blew up on the third. That kinda shock, you certainly don't need in your life. Trying another that looks quite promising, and that appears more stable even in quiet periods. If there's anything traders hate, it's quiet periods. These moments of market indecision ruin equity quite quickly sometimes! Make up your minds, assholes, so I can then take the money from your pockets. Zero sum games. Someone's gotta give.

Kill a man, and you're a murderer...
Kill millions, and you're a conqueror...
Kill em' all, and you're a ... GOD.

You can't be right always

EUR/USD, 1H, Today

Well! Down 260 pips on the EUR/USD trade I took a long position on. Can't win all the time! Just man up and move on. I'm finally getting the psyche right; I'm not even affected emotionally anymore. And that's another thing; your positions are prone to Friday night delights. Try to stay away on Fridays.

Gonna give this trade a little more time, it's near a pretty strong 1.4800+ support, and the RSI is brutally oversold. Otherwise if things have turned for the worse on Monday I'm getting the fuck outta there.

On a side note, Kenny said to short gold (look at tagboard), and look where it is now? Down more than US$50 per oz. Didn't listen did you? Yeah, I don't hear you laughing either!

Turtle Brain

Someone said, the only time you need a brain to trade successfully, is when you're designing your system. Once you've got your system and your rules, just be dumb when executing trades according to your game plan.

And that is the secret of all trading. There is no special rule. It is just discipline. Don't be smart, don't be creative.

As illustration, he then went on to say that George Bush, in an alternate reality where he weren't president, would be an extremely profitable trader.

Anyway, go long on EUR/USD and GBP/USD now.
