A Trader's Vision & Daily PnL Reporting Resumes

Putting politics aside just for today, and just for mysterious Z.

I don't know if you remember this project of his that I mentioned in Feb (which was the reason that I resumed public blogging, and took up this personal challenge to help him test out the effectiveness and practicality of setting very specific goals and measuring progress at specific intervals) -  it's finally completed, and yesterday marked the first day of the soft launch of this project.

Below is a sneak preview of what Z's been up to.

It looks GRAND.

It IS.

At the end of the video, you'll see the URL of the page that will answer your questions.

May I ask all my friends who have been reading, particularly those who have blogs, to share the video after you've watched it, decided that you like what you see,  and are as curious as me in finding out where this vision will lead us.

Floor's all yours now, Z:



Regarding my own trading, I have decided to resume daily trading, sharing of charts and reporting of daily PnL after the long break I've taken to ponder on what I want to do.

Trading resumes next week, after I've settled some unfinished business. I'm still holding my 6J short in the parent account, and will use a smaller 10k account for day trading of NG and crude oil (and from time to time, FX) futures.

I saw that vid yesterday and put it in my blog queue for future posting- a nice tribute to traders. =)

Thanks for providing some additional background on it. Looking forward to learning more about it.

One couldn't help but notice the Si-Bei-Chio traders. You should have been in the vid as the real Si-Bei-Chio trader and not just another pretty actress. ;-)

LOL!! Soulfire :-)

I'll tell you more about the actors and actresses after the official launch. The male lead is a model. D says he's Si-Bei-Chio!!! LOL!!! I'm sure you noticed a brief shot from "Floored" - telling of the scale of the project, doesn't it? :-)

Will you consider a full migration to Blogger, PLEEEEEEASE? I can never access your xanga site - not via firefox, not via IE - I'm the biggest computer idiot I know, and D's hardly around so I have no one to help me fix my firewall issue.

Ok, I wasn't serious :-) I'm sure D will be able to find out what was blocking me from accessing your blog. Looking forward to seeing the video on your site! :-)

I still have no idea what this is. But I'm a little slow.

Jules said...

:-) Nice try, Lonely! You're not very good at pretending to be modest. :-P

Jules said...

@ Lonely: Give up you bike trip, and I'll give you some clues. :-D

@Singapore Forex Trader (SFT): I can't leave a comment on your blog AGAIN!!! If you're reading this, please find out from Soulfire's blog (haven't been able to access his blog...it's gotta be my firewall) what his post is about. I see the word "PORN"... ;-)

BS Jules,

I dunno why you can't post, if you want you can write your comments down here.

Jules said...

@TYL:yes, video's awesome. The scriptwriter is more awesome ;-)

@SFT:why are you calling me bullshit Jules? Sob...sob...sob....
Actually, I've not been able to comment on many blogger sites...

You know, I wasn't aware of the movie "Floored" - thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Speaking of pleas....will you PLEEEEEEEEEEASE get your firewall fixed so you can access all the public blogs again. You can't access my site....can't post on SFT's site...

It's in you best interest to get it fixed...otherwise you may wake up to finding you can no longer access IB's site. =:-0 And on a flash crash day! =:-0 =:-0

Make getting your firewall fixed a priority!!! Comment on my site to let me know when you are successful. =)

Jules said...

LOL!!! D said the reason that my pc's never crashed is because of the firewalls. It's hard to argue with a computer whiz who's also a regional head of IT RISK MANAGEMENT. :-)

MIGRATE! Migrate to Blogger!! LOL!!

Soullfire said...

Okay, in that case I'm positive the regional head if IT risk management should be able to fix why you are the ONLY one I know who has lost the ability to access my site.....just like I'm betting SFT has no one else telling him they can't post comments. =)

FIX IT! Fix your firewall!!! Lol!

Don't be a computer renegade/delinquent! ;-)
