  1. That is a nice desk but I can't stand white. Gonna have to be black or brown. At 70 inches how are you fitting 3 27's and a laptop with 40% space unused? Is one of the monitors above another? Or are they angled? Think I am going to go with a quad monitor stand. I have a dual stand already. If need be I can use that if I need 2 more monitors. That way I won't need a desk with 30" depth. You make a good point about people overestimating their abilities. But that's true about most things. I really wouldn't recommend day trading to most people as the average person is not suited to it. Being in the longest bull market has little to do with active trading. Traders trade the market in both directions. Active traders make use of short selling techniques and leverage. You're not going to making use of those things while investing. A decent active trader will return more than 100% in a couple of years.
  2. Little update to Friday as it was my first day after my switch back to full time stock trading. I found staring at a Level2 trading screen and time and sales window was of little use and frankly made me a tad queasy. Not sure how I use to look at that 8 hours a day. It use to be a very valuable tool now it's of little use apart from order entry. Though I'd say it's absolutely necessary for quick order entry. You can still (sometimes) spot what the algos are doing from watching Level2. Depending on your time frame that may be of use. In the end trading is trading. The tools may evolve a little but it's just comes down to getting a feel for price action and trusting yourself. As well as incorporating proper risk management. Very glad this was a 3 day weekend. Got a new PC. Takes such a bloody long time setting up a new machine. Junked all my old monitors and replaced them with larger ones. My old desk is no longer going to work so I will have to order a new one. In the meantime had to dismantle the upper half of my old desk to make room for everything. Still lots to do.
  3. I have been trading for a living for about 22 years. First 17 years trading stocks both retail and prop. Was feeling pretty burned out and switched over to Forex and futures trading for about 5 years. Got the itch to switch back to stocks and did so recently. Nothing beats working for yourself. Not having to answer to anyone is priceless. The psychology of trading for yourself is very difficult. When you have to make money vs 'it would be nice if I made money' it's a totally different animal. The general rule is if you're going to attempt it is you must be properly capitalized and you need about 1 year's living expenses separate from your trading capital. Much easier to take on this endevor when you're young and have minimal expenses. When you have a spouse a kid(s) and a mortgage it just adds to the pressure.
  4. Well today marked my return to full time stock trading after a 5 year break to trade mainly foreign exchange and futures. Feel a little guilty reporting my biggest winner today was short BB. Don't buy garbage. It always ends the same.
  5. Word is Daddy Dotard was very angry with her for planning to attend. She's worried how it will effect her future political career. <-----------------
  6. Trump supporter dead in suspected suicide days after being arrested at Capitol riot A supporter of the US president who was arrested at the Capitol riot was said to have died by suicide. A medical examiner in Fulton County, Atlanta, ruled on Tuesday that the death of Christopher Stanton Georgia was by suicide, confirming earlier reports. The 53-year-old was also said to have suffered a “gunshot wound to the chest”, the medical examiner said. He was found by his wife in the basement of their home in Alpharetta, Georgia, on Saturday, according to reports. Georgia, who was said to have been a regional portfolio manager at a North Carolina bank, was arrested in Washington DC on Wednesday evening after taking part in the riot on the Capitol. According to the Washington Examiner, he was charged with attempting to break into the US Capitol alongside supporters of the US president. They had earlier been instructed by the president to march on the country’s legislature with “strength”. Georgia, who pleaded not guilty in court on Thursday, was also charged with violating an evening curfew in Washington DC that was imposed after the riot. He was said to have stayed behind, and did not disperse at a police request. Officers were called to his home in Alpharetta on Saturday morning, having received a phone call from his wife. According to a police report seen by the Daily Mail, she told officers there was "blood everywhere" and that “My husband is dead". Police were also reported to have removed two rifles from the property. The 53 year-old’s death follows that of five others who died following Wednesday’s riot. They included a Capitol Police officer and supporters of Donald Trump, some of whom were said to have suffered medical emergencies, while one other was shot. The FBI said on Tuesday that more than 70 people had been arrested in relation to Wednesday’s riot, with federal prosecutors expecting “hundreds” of others.
  7. Rep. Mikie Sherrill Says Lawmakers Led 'Reconnaissance' Tours at Capitol, Demands Investigation New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill is calling for an investigation into members of Congress she saw on January 5 leading groups of people through the Capitol in what she has described in a Facebook Live video as "a reconnaissance for the next day," when a pro-Trump mob violently stormed the Capitol in an insurrection that left five people dead. In a letter sent Wednesday to the Acting House Sergeant at Arms, Acting Senate Sergeant at Arms, and United States Capitol Police, and signed by Sherrill and 33 other House Democrats, "an immediate investigation" is sought into the "extremely high number of outside groups" to the Capitol Complex on January 5. The activity was so unusual because, among other reasons, "access to the Capitol Complex has been restricted since public tours ended in March of last year due to the pandemic." The letter said these "unusually large groups ... could only have gained access to the Capitol Complex from a Member of Congress or a member of their staff" and "were so concerning that they were reported to the Sergeant at Arms on January 5." In addition, the letter said the visitors "appeared to be associated with the rally at the White House the following day." It added: "Members of the group that attacked the Capitol seemed to have an unusually detailed knowledge of the layout of the Capitol Complex. "The presence of these groups within the Capitol Complex was indeed suspicious. Given the events of January 6, the ties between these groups inside the Capitol Complex and the attacks on the Capitol need to be investigated." ******************* Sounds like there's going to be much more to this.
  8. Olympian Klete Keller charged with 3 crimes in U.S. District Court for involvement in Capitol riots Klete Keller, a champion swimmer and two-time Olympic gold medalist, has been charged with several crimes in connection to his alleged involvement in the riots at the U.S. Capitol last week. According to the criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., Keller has been charged with: Obstructing law enforcement engaged in official duties incident to civil disorder Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority Violent entry and disorderly conduct on capitol grounds The FBI used Keller’s height, his Colorado driver’s license photograph, and his clearly visible Team USA jacket to positively identify him. ******************* What happened last week will never be confused for a Mensa convention.
  9. Congrats to all the traitors who ransacked the capital. You managed to get your boy impeached again in just 7 days.
  10. MyPillow's CEO is standing by Trump after the deadly Capitol riots, and offering customers a discount with the code 'FightForTrump' Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow, is continuing to stand by President Donald Trump following the US Capitol riots on January 6, even as other businesses cut ties. MyPillow was offering the discount code "FightForTrump" on Tuesday, allowing customers to get cheaper deals on pillows, the New York Times reported. Twitter flagged two of Lindell's tweets on Sunday and Monday, which claimed the election was stolen, "due to a risk of violence." Since the siege, Lindell has appeared on Newsmax to claim the pro-Trump rioters were "very peaceful" and to blame "undercover antifa that dressed up as Trump people" for causing damage. Pretty sure his Tinder match is Marjorie.
