    Handy list...even for someone who does not use jargon. It is a helpful resource to find out what some traders are talking about. Thank you.

    May I suggest adding "scalping"?

  • The "HOPE TRADE"  [View instapost]
    Very well said Mike. Thank you for your time and effort.

    Your being fairly new here is perhaps one reason why the surprise that so many people here go underwater, and then average down. They are the current "herd", they are dogged, and they will not be easily turned. I know. I have tried. Perhaps you, with your years of experience, will be more successful in changing some minds in what I think are bad practices, especially in this market. I sincerely hope so.

    P.S. I do hope you can publish this latest comment as a stand alone Instablog as well.

    Hmm....my kind of blog. Mrs. Perkins says our front yard looks like a Disney movie.

    @trip, was that wood pecker really pleated, or pileated? (grin)

    Markos and SevenSeas,

    Thank you for the civil discussion. It will be very interesting to see what the Greek people decide, and by how much.

  • The Gold Miners Have Probably Bottomed, Even If Gold Has Not!  [View instapost]
    Robert,

    Thank you for your article. I admire your goal of calling both price and direction of gold and gold stocks. I can not do that myself effectively (as a day trader I really don't have to) although I do manually chart spot gold to get a 5 day sma.

    Questions;
    #1. What gold index do you watch while scalping (if any), in addition to 1 minute charts?
    #2. Do you still try to "achieve a steady 1% weekly return" as quoted from your profile page?

    Thank you again for sharing your insight and experience.
