Welcome to Big Mike's Trading Forum.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

BMT is fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Allright, you look at screens all day.

Do you have a dog ? Which one ? Are you planning on getting one ?

I believe a retail home trader will make a dog happy because he's there all the time..

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I find myself considering a dog when I see a photo like this,
but quickly change it when I see their owners picking up the big dumps every morning in the park.

Had a black and tan longhair for 14 years, looked like Dexter. Now have 2 chocolate dapple longhairs.
They don't seem to help my trading but they are a lot of company.

Dexter is a great little dog. My girls wanted a lab and we definitely have the yard and house for it, but my wife said no because of the shedding. I would definitely get another long hair dapple dachshund.

Thank you Mike.

Max was 5 1/2 weeks old in that pic. He's a border collie and is almost 7 months old now. He has lots of energy, is scary-smart, and is always ready to learn/play.

It's true that a dog requires a little bit of effort, but the love and unfettered devotion they return more than makes up for it. I need only look at Max and he starts wagging his tail.

There are many breeds of dogs. In general, dogs are bred to do certain tasks.
If everything/everybody else can be taken care of with the time a trader has in
a given day, it is important to choose the correct dog for a pet. Some are bred
to run and chase sheep. If there are no sheep they will chase anything. Other
dog breeds are just the opposite. I like dogs myself, but they require time. They
are all social beings that require love. Love takes time.



“Sometimes I wonder if there’s enough love to go around with all the pain and longing. But one thing is for sure: If anyone has any extra love, even a heartbeat, or a touch or two, I wish they wouldn’t waste it on dogs.”

Excerpt from "Extra Love"
