Damn! What'd I miss?

Out of nowhere... on a beautiful summer Monday the week before Labor Day, the VO turns out a sweet day.

I'm upset I missed the action but it's great to see the market is still moving well for traders as we head into September.

I'll be back trading tomorrow. Let's hope I can find as much as the VO did today.

Hey you and your crew post quarterly, annual, and / or year to date % returns from your trading?

Also, with volume drying up....are you more inclined to trade individual stocks or market indices / ETF's on days when you are not sporting your body suit and surf board?

I stay away from percentages. I just care about dollars and cents. I've noticed Evolution is now reporting percentages on his site....

As for low volume, I mean I just take it easy. I don't really change my style when I do trade, I just take less trades because I find they have less chance of working in my favor/moving.

Hi D. I have been M.I.A.lately but between my crippled hand and non-trading related things i have been too busy to jump back into full-time trading mode. Plus i really try and avoid trading too actively in August. Usually low volume drifting markets. A real account churner. Anyways, just looking thru some charts i noticed that MOS(one of your fav. stocks) is setting up for potentially a very nice ascending triangle pattern(daily chart) and could be ready to breakout higher any day now. keep an eye on it. targets to about 50 if it does break higher. Good luck and hopefully we'll chat soon.
