Mind over Markets

PSW member Mark says:

Probably the most important thing to think about when trading (who’s playing the space and at what times?).  very good knowledge to have.  I’ve said this in past posts many times buy I HIGHLY suggest everyone read this book:  Mind over Markets (by James F. Dalton).

Not a holy grail or system trading, just a methodical approach to understanding the players in the market and when they’re in it.  Even if you don’t use the CBOE Market Profile, you’ll learn a lot about who’s in the market when with this book.

As a useful add-on to the book, member Alfred Toy adds:

Mind over Markets. If you are really interested in studing Market Profile. See Cisco-Futures
Also Dr Brett has an article on Market profile and some good links to reading material. (In addition) notice Jim Dalton now has a website with free pdf and video on Anatomy of Market Profile.

k1 Project – Core Strategy III – Advanced Topics

The LTP strategy is the core of Phil’s approach. Though the minute-to-minute action through comments might lead you to think otherwise, the central elements of the LTP strategy are fundamental to any understanding of Phil’s approach:

I have come to doubt the veracity of Phil’s professed performance returns, as well as the usefulness of his strategy. Caveat Emptor – k1


"The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare." – Juma Ikangaa

Welcome friends to a journey I began this past summer, to understand how a trader and blogger who kept coming up in my Quicken news source (by way of SeekingAlpha) was consistently producing the kinds of returns I had been taught to believe could only be snake oil.





k1 Project – Covering and Hedging II – Complications

"Hedging is, in part, an admission that you may not know everything – that you may in fact, be wrong about a few things and are willing to pay to insure against that possibility." – Phil

Look Out, New Yorkers: GM To Begin Testing Driverless Cars In The Big Apple

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

If you happen to see a driverless car trundling down Fifth Avenue, don’t panic.   

Compounding the misery that Elon Musk is likely feeling right now, General Motors has scored yet another victory in its quest to build the first commercially viable self-driving car.  
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday granted GM’s Cruise Automation division permission to begin testing fully autonomous vehicles on New York City roads – meaning GM will become the first automaker to begin testing autonomous cars in the northeast....

Travel Ban Enjoined, But Only Because of Traumplaw?

By JOHN F. BANZHAF. Originally published at ValueWalk.

A federal judge in Hawaii has termporarily enjoined the President’s latest travel ban order, finding that it was inconsistent with federal immigration law,. even though non-Muslim countries were now included, and the explanations offered were more extensive and based on considerably more study than the two earlier.

Many law professors and other independent legal observers had concluded that any such challenge would likely fail, unless the courts applied what is increasingly being characterozed as “Trumplaw” – a legal analysis unique to the actions of this president alone, and designed to oppose and frustrate his efforts, even if it requires bending or stretching established legal principles, says public interest law professoR John Banzhaf who explains the new phenomina this way.

BDC's Crypto Corner

 

BDC’s Crypto Corner

By Biodieselchris

Hello fellow PSW-ers. I've been interested in cryptocurrencies (informally, "cryptos" or "coins") since 2011 when I first heard about Bitcoin, Since that time I've become somewhat of a subject matter expert and personal investor in Bitcoin and other alternative cryptocurrencies ("altcoins"). I have even started one of my own!

I've been posting comments about cryptos in Phil's daily post from time to time. Recently, Phil and I got on a call and he asked if I would like to run a blog on his site specifically about cryptos, which I thought was a great idea. My goal would be to educate members on what I know about how coins work, how I research coins (what I find interesting), how exactly one can...

Circadian rhythm Nobel: what they discovered and why it matters

Today, the “beautiful mechanism” of the body clock, and the group of cells in our brain where it all happens, have shot to prominence. The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young for their work on describing the molecular cogs and wheels inside our biological clock.

In the 18th century an astronomer by the name of Jean Jacques d'Ortuous de Ma...

Day of Last Dances

News today has been relentlessly terrible. A horrific mass murder happened last night in Las Vegas. (Our politician's abject failure to address gun control is beyond sickening.) And today, reports that Tom Petty died of a heart attack, followed by reports that Tom Petty is not dead, and now reports confirming that Tom Petty has passed away.
