  • Stop Loss

    Hi!
    I was seeing several videos of "trade any horse" on geeks toy and I have a question about them. What kind of stop loss do you recommend if back is matched and the odds suddenly starts to up and up and lay stays unmatched, 5 ticks for example? with hedge or without? Is the problem that i have more times...

    Sorry for my possibly bad english and thank you
    Cheers

    Hi, im not sure how others do it but i do it on a % of my stake. For example with £100 stake i would try not to let it get past a £5 red up, ie 5%. This all depends on the odds and the stakes you are trading. Hope this helps

          I never wait. If the price goes 5 ticks for example - it is better to make money, but not wait until the price returns. If the price will return I can make money again.
          People share in youtube their only successful videos. they don't share unsuccessful videos as they lose their money. I never seen such video in youtube.

            not on youtube maybe, but if you look for the right (honest and adamant) guy you may see the fellow actually closing races in red every now and then
            go to this thread to learn a little bit abt a "myth": mikeyb

            things might have changed since he recorded those vids (springtime 2009), nonetheless I think they'll help you a lot. Not to mention mikeyb himself actually posted in the above thread (not longer than a month ago) and promised to record, sometime in the near future, a new one using The Geek Toy...

              Unfortunately no videos available. I want to see some decent horses I will start training them sooner or later for sure (just for fun - I don't like horses ) by using technical indicators - no way of winning other way for me.

                You're right. files are not there anymore, I don't know whether is HotFile.com which deletes them after a while or what.
                Anyway I'm uploading them right now, hang on a few mins and I'll post the links...

                PS: btw, I own a premium accnt with those guys (got up to 1.2 TB storage space...) so I should be able to leave them vids there for quite awhile

                OK done the 1st:
                this should be the one from the "Walk In The Park" day:

                  this one was provided by Mickey Pearce

                  for the last one (a full Mikeyb's trading day) you gotta wait a bit.... I took the liberty to change the soundtrack (the original one got me a psycho-neurotic stroke... ), and I have to edit and compress it a bit to stay within a reasonable file size... just be patient

                      don't know. I actually watch it muted. I'm an aging old fart and frankly my music taste bends toward other atmospheres...
                      you'll hear what I mean by this in the last big vid that's coming.

                      for more enlightenments abt the sound fireworks contained there, you should ask the original "creator" I guess, mikeyb himself perhaps.

                        Here's the last show:

                        http://hotfile.com/dl/108553141/7ce7...03.09.mp4.html

                        it's huge: almost 300MB, but covers a big chunk of a trading session, 2 hrs and a quarter

                        like I said I changed the soundtrack to something that suits me better... musically...

                        I take full responsibility and don't give a flying fig abt the original, my very personal opinion is that it was crap, my apologies to mike if it was indeed his original choice... in which case all my admiration and respect for his trading mastery, but dude I found your musical inclinations debatable to say the least

                          In spite of my best will I've been forced to delete the file from Hotfile.com due to possible copyright "rights" infringements. And guess what... related precisely to the tunes/songs contained in my edited version... damn...

                          no big deal. I've another version with no soundtrack whatsoever (anyone will be able to run it with any favorite background music...), but I'm currently on another business trip and Im accessing the web via the Vodafone dongle or the Hotel's WiFi, both excruciatingly slow if one has to upload over 250MB of stuff.

                          So anyone interested will have to wait till I'm back to broadband cable connection (most likely end of next week).

                          sorry for the unconvenience (dont I start to sound like bloody BF during an outage? )...

                            No problem, i've uploaded this file on Rapidshare, here's the link:

                              Hi All,

                              I've just watched the "Walk In The Park" video. I don't know if it's me getting soft in the head in my fast approaching dotage, but, it's a thing of beauty.

                              To watch the smooth, slick manner in which the trading is undertaken, is like watching ballet (bad choice of allegory, since I'm not a ballet fan) graceful and almost as natural as breathing.

                              The closest I've ever come to that state of ability was, when as a student I spent every waking hour playing table football and eventually didn't have to think about the move, only let my body execute it and it felt pretty damned good.

                              Hats off to the lad, well done,

                              cheers, MC
