    Default Tech/a's (Daffy's) Last Post

    Firstly thanks to all those I've interacted with over the years.
    I've enjoyed every Discussion/Altercation/Opinion.
    A great diversity of people and talents.

    After 15000 posts I wanted to at least leave something.

    Why go?

    I don't have the need to post --- to share -- its gone.

    Its taken a while but I have seen a continuous flow and rotation of people with similar passions/desires/aims
    with huge bundles of similar ideas and theories all meaning something to every individual and nothing to as many others. So it has been in the past and so it will be in the future.

    Time for me to hop off.

    TH said it best (Cant find the exact quote---but)
    There are many who are very knowledgeable in the market but---cant make a profit
    Personally I think forums are full of people like this.
    There are a few like TH and Howard Bandy who subtly (Howard) or KO (TH) the message.

    Seek Simplicity

    There are golden messages all through posts worth knowing.
    This from Howard and is my findings

    I have found, and you will find when you replicate my analysis, that the single most important thing you can do to maximize future profit is remove / avoid large losing trades. It is more important to avoid large losses than anything else -- even at the expense of missing profitable trades. The next important thing you can do is avoid a high percentage of losing trades.
    After a life time of application and education--this!

    Enter/Exit and Manage your trading as you will but above is the Bottom line.

    Each analyst needs to do this analysis him or herself for the system that will be traded
    And so the countless posts continue as to what is best.

    So to my own opinion as to the biggest stumbling block to your financial freedom.

    And it may on the surface seem far too simple.

    Lack of Capital.

    Money makes money
    Money alters mindsets
    Money opens doors to more
    You don't have to have it---but you do know how to and be able to access it.
    You wont reach Financial Freedom without it.

    If you cant access it you cant Leverage and you cant Compound.

    I've been LUCKY enough to have my and a few of my coming generations covered financially.

    Don't under estimate luck
    Right place right time
    Meaning opportunity
    capability and finally-----DOING IT.

    Most talk about it.

    For me its come in the following order.
    The Markets.

    To me the markets are the least attractive. Here are the most failures---the most theorists.
    Even the experts are in many cases no more talented than the general punter.---They get it wrong just as often.

    My advice.
    Learn the street smarts of Business it will serve you well.
    Learn Property ---- when to buy/hold and develop.
    Learn HOW to trade---you'll always be able to fish---diversify your holdings.

    KEEP CONTROL in everything.

    Everything changes and never as fast as it does today.

    People have more knowledge at their fingertips now and in the future than
    we will ever have. Either learn how to use it---OR EMPLOY those who can
    use it for you---(My choice).

    With all sincerity

    Enjoy the future
    Learn from the past

    Tech, it's a shame to see you go. Thank you for your contributions to ASF over the last eleven years, and for your support of the community.

    Best wishes for the future, and don't forget to pop in every now and again to pay us a visit. Just as your desire to post and share has now gone, it may just as easily return.

    You are always welcome here.

    The Duck may have left the building but he sure has left a huge legacy here and none more so than the OP. Another gem.

    Thanks for your contribution to this forum tech. You have had a passion for trading and learning and I think that's why you've contributed as much as you have. Passion is what's needed in this game.

    You have a way of summarising things that is quite remarkable (ie: smart). Whether any one agrees is beside the point.

    There are more people reading in the background than you probably realise. You provoke thought which I applaud. And I'm sure many others also!

    This forum won't be the same without yourself. (And we all miss Julia).

    Gíday tech/a

    So your finally hanging up your boots hey?

    Well itís about bloody time! Just kidding, I am going to miss your input into my trading education.

    I first started my journey back in 2004 on this site and later at The Chartist forum and the biggest (and best) influence has been you. Through the days of Tech Trader and its development and up until your recent work on VSA and the many other threads you have started.

    There have been times when many people questioned your motives for posting, but having a background in teaching myself I know that you have that same selfless desire to just educate others without any ulterior motives.

    You have started many interesting and helpful topics on this site. Sometimes they have been sabotaged by others who want to criticise and belittle your efforts. Sometimes you have succumbed to these people, who have spoilt a good thread. And I donít blame you because you must have often thought you were banging your head against a brick wall.

    As far as I am concerned your sincerity and integrity has always shone out and I am grateful for the helping hand you have offered to me and others over the years.

    Beginners in this trading business could do a lot worse than troll through ASF for all your posts and threads.

    Personally I would like to thank you for all the input you have made here. I appreciate the time and effort you have put in.

    I too hope that you will return occasionally to add your wisdom to this community.

    Thanks again, John, and all the best to you and your family.

    Kind regards, dutchie.

    Great last post Tech/A. It's a shame that it is your last but you have left a legacy that will remain forever.

    Thanks for all your posts and insight. You have made a big difference for a lot of small fry traders like myself.

    Hopefully we have some other ASF members willing to step up to fill the void left by you.

    All the best on your future journeys.

    No one learns anything from being right all the time.
    The images we have of ourselves are rarely accurate.
    When they shatter, therefor, we find ourselves closer to what matters.
    The ever rolling dice helps us know that none of us are better than anyone else.
    Hopefully, we come to realize that that's the best thing of all.
    We return to the joyful festivity of being human once more.

    All that mattered in the end is what we gave.
    Oddly, the currency of life is richer when your poor.
    What you take with you, in the end,
    Is all.

    When your rich with that
    How much easier it is to walk through that door.
    Best wishes.
