Wants to Meet
I am a member of Istanbul Tribe.
Between 10-20th of April, 2016, I will be in Seattle for business trip.
Is it possible to meet with you, or may be join a Workshop after 10th
No agenda, I just want to have a cup of coffee and the privilege to
meet with great Ed.
you for reaching out to me.
At this point, I have no definite plans to host a Workshop or to visit
Also, I rarely drink coffee during meetings.
You might check with me when you arrive in the US to determine my
location - likely Austin TX or Carolina PR.
Hope you are fine.

After coming to the ah-ha that the frustration I feel with my
relationship and work are related to feelings with dad, my girlfriend
txts me she wants to know when a good time to call is.
I txt her this ah-ha and say its a good time to call, not facetime, and
that i wonder what shes experiencing.
We speak and she shares she notices i'm distant. I share that I realize
i'm distracted with feelings with dad that I don't want to end our
relationship and I don't want to quit my job prior to getting into
these feelings at a Tribe meeting.
She wonders what that means for us and I say I don't know.
I am crying and blurt out I just want dad here.
She thanks me for sharing and is shares she is here for me.
Ed, when is the next Austin trading tribe meeting?
After e-mailing you the first e-mail I e-mail Boston and South Chicago
to find out their Trading Tribe schedule too.
I've had no success with the two New York and the one Newton New Jersey
you for sharing your process.
I occasionally host an ad-hoc Tribe Meeting in Austin - for people who
have substantial issues and substantial Tribe experience, motivation
and willingness to participate.
the Opposite of Addiction
I think your models very accurately portray this.
I think of the connection that he is speaking of as real intimacy. I
would love to know your opinion on this. I hope you are well.
you for sending me the link.
I can resonate with his message.
you for raising this issue.
Typically, when something runs out, its price increases.
Recently read "Superforecasting" thought you might enjoy the
book. Feel free to shoot me book recommendation.
Also I think python as a language may have some advantages to learn for
traders: It's free, lot's of library's, it's
you for sharing yor process.
Trend Traders don't try to predict the non-existing future.
They post-dict events and ride trends.
Some nights ago, at about 3 AM, as the rain taps on the window of
someone else´s apartment, the mirror of the person whom I casually
accompany opens me to a view of [a little me] hidden in a cupboard.
As I observe his wide open curious eyes and his uncommon sensitivity I
understand how he tried for years to hide and bury it and to protect by
giving orders, developing an eating disorder and working out until he
was able to run 45 km in 3 hours.
I discover, to my surprise, his deepest helplessness. As I do it, my
heart shrinks. And at once I realize why things are the way they were.
And I tell the kid, who could not trust me nor could understand that I
would understand, that everything is fine. And I am afraid that he does
not believe me.
Thank you again for sharing your process with me. Some years ago I
observe that the distillate of all TTP components, the
<forms>, <hot seats>,
<zero-points>, <dissapearences> and
<rocks>, is a scent which I call, if one knows how to
apply it, <healing love>.
I wish you a glorious 2016!
you for sharing your process.
I want to thank you for all the inspiration, insights and fun that you
share with us on your faq and in your books.
And by the way many thanks for your excellent book recommendation
„Dying of Money“. I often think about the large credit bubble in Europe
resulting in 0.5% return on a 10 year government bond; now I see this
as a kind of store for monetary inflation and a pure question of trust
on the side of the bond holders.
Today I finish my yearly momentum analysis of the german stock market
with spectacular results for 2015 which I would like to share with you.
The basis for the following dataset is the german „CDAX“ which
comprehends approximately 470 stocks, so each decile is about 47
stocks. Every year I sort the stocks in terms of relative strength over
the last twelve month.
In 2015 for example the top 10% or top 47 performers of 2014 show a
performance of 92,9% on average (isn’t that crazy?).
I see a nice confirmation of trend following strategies over the years
in our local stock market.
I wish you all the best for the new year; may the trend be with you.
you for sharing your process and results.
I have a story of a trader who fits your "Everybody Gets What They
Want" philosophy to a T.
This trader was exceptional for many years based on audited track
record. He was even celebrated in books and articles for his stellar
Then great misfortune that had nothing to do with trading or with
finances befell him after which he kept steadily losing money for many
In analyzing his trades which he was gracious enough to share with me,
it did seem uncanny that whenever he entered a trade, it would almost
invariably start going against him, then when he would sell the
position at a loss, that would be at or close to the low. This happened
over and over. I had never seen such an endlessly long succession of
It made him think someone out there was jealous and using money to move
his stocks against him the moment he put on the trade. But there is no
way anyone would know what he was trading. He even started trading
small size to see if that made a difference, but it didn't.
Yet when he advised others, those others would profit off his advice.
It was as if something out there didn't want him to make money for
himself as a trader.
And interestingly, whenever this trader started using another highly
successful trader's strategy that had worked for a number of years, the
strategy's signals would stop working the moment he started trading the
strategy with his own money. In effect, his trading the strategy would
bust the strategy not just for himself but for the trader who was
gracious enough to share the strategy with him.
Of course, he knew all about trading personalities, risk/reward, and
all the relevant statistics, so was surprised when the strategy would
stop working for everyone the moment he started using it.
This earned him the nickname the Typhoid Trader, much as typhoid Mary
who spread her disease to others earned her that nickname.
I've always felt that the subconscious mind is unlimited in its power.
I feel the deep trauma that befell him after his years of great trading
success somehow implanted a big negativity into his psyche such that
anything he traded (stocks, strategies, etc) would start losing money
because somehow, his subconscious knew when a strategy would stop
working which was the point at which he would start trading that
strategy. Same for the stocks he bought using his own personal
He went through hell and back in 2015 removing these rocks from his
psyche, coming to terms with the way of the world and his past traumas,
and for the first time in years, his trading started being handsomely
I feel his ordeal shows that anytime someone thinks that market forces
are ganging up against them, it is an illusion. The reality can be
explained by the ancient Hawaiian philosophy, ho'oponopono. We all must
take responsibility for everything that happens in our lives. In other
words, our infinitely powerful subconscious steers the ship, even if we
may not realize it.
Here's to an epic 2016 which may well prove to be one of the wilder
rocket rides of humanity as governments devour their middle classes. I
will keep a clear head, observe, and look for opportunities.
you for sharing your process and insights.
Happy New Year! How are you ? My forex day-trading in first half of
2015 was ok, then I paused due to my demanding Quality Management
consulting business, so for this year I’m looking to trade longer
timeframes and possibly selling options. Have a Great 2016!
you for sharing your process.
I wish you all the best for 2016 and beyond!
I come across the theory of Regulatory Capture
and wonder how this might relate to Govopoly in the 39th Day.
you for raising this issue.
I show how the Govopoly System, uses various methods,
including regulation, such as you mention, to assimilate the Free
Competition Sector, and ultimately to stifle the entire economy.
The Wiki article defines Regulatory Capture and cites various recent
Govopoly presents the long-term dynamics of the
Monopoly-By-Government-Sanction system as it grows, slowly at
first, and then, later, assimilates the Free-Competition Sector.
Happy New Ear
Let's become beter listeners.
