Tiger,

I am curious, why do you still trade? Did you throw it down the toilet doing destructive habits? Do you just enjoy trading? I guess that is part II?

I am laughing so loud, you probably hear me now.


I remember where I saw that same scenario, it was Dan Akroyd, just before he went onto the floor,

everyone was either in the stalls, or combing their hair or primping, and as soon as the opening bell went, the doors all opened, as if they were race horses.

sheesh, what's the name of that movie?


well, the place of solace at the American Stock Exchange was the comfortable and cozy lunch room. More deals were talked there and balanced than in the hallways.

man, you're bringing back memories.

how about, you fast forward to where you're at now, and then we go back and do gap fill, on how you got there

you certainly have the attention of the other traders on this thread, and mines too.

tiger you write well enough to write a book. Traders love to read this stuff you should consider it. Even though things have changed I love to read about when trading had a real human poker element to it. Really fascinating stuff.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

"Trading places" was the name of the movie I think

Indeed, like others here I hope you do write a book. Could see it easily becoming a movie. 'Floored' would have benefited by someone like you having more of a hand in it.
