The Solfest Resolution for 2012

It's a new year, a new start, at least for the tax man stats dept. We humans take this time to reflect on the past year, the future in front of us, the weight we will lose, the muts we will not take, and...... what?

Whats a mut?

Made Up Trade.

Can I go a whole year without taking a MUT?

Can you?

So, new for 2012 on the big Trading Crude Oil / Capital is Scarce / Prepare to be Wrong blog is the days without a mut counter.

Kind of like AA, I've been sober for 4 days now.

So were off, full of promise, and yes that exercise equipment in the basement should get the dust blown off.

Although I'm not putting a counter on that.

I have already blown the mut counter a couple of times.

I resolve to continue to doing all sorts of silly things, that is imperfect me.

I also resolve to take money from other traders that do even sillier things than me :)

Sandy your system looks a little more discretionary than mine.

Mine has to be idiot proof, cause, you know, I'm the operator.

The only way I could make use of that poster is if they changed that comma to a decimal point.

I know, I know.

One day at a time.

This is a great idea. I will print one of these calendars.

I should note that today I had 2 outa 3 charts blue and my itchy finger was ready to pounce.

I then actually thought about the mut indicator and I put my finger away.

5 whole days, wow.

Nice, I broke the mut rule all day on CL and got away with it. Thank goodness for small size and stops.

I am almost at the realization that I am likely to keep making stupid trades forever, so maybe I can make my method idiot proof.

And that is an easier task and a more effective weapon.
