Hubris and arrogance have no limit. Having closed his initial trade yesterday with a horrendous loss, he's at it again - more losses! Now he's had to close the comments section of his blog because too many people in pain are daring to criticise him and his methods. He calls them "trolls"!

Now this is nice, there is a moderation option we can use.

All the comments you post appear after moderated. Unfortunately we had to do this.

You can post comments but there will be a few minutes delay

Thanks

I disagree completely. He made some great calls, got a bigger following, and watched people post garbage when he was temporarily down on a trade...Nor did he lose big on his last trade, as he nailed it by selling out into the squeeze yesterday, and lost small. Why should he open himself up to the crap? As far as I can see, he is one hell of a trader...all traders have losses.

Yep, the usual story with him. He lost 55 points on his initial trade and then just kept on averaging and averaging and averaging down and then claimed that by selling on a small rebound he "lost small". Maybe that's what Jesse Livermore did, finally ending up broke and committing suicide.

Frankly I don't know how he deals with the commentary by all the newbies, etc. When I trade I find it absolutely necessary to be in a calm situation. Just reading through the comments there does anything but calm you. In terms of the trading, in fairness he caught some pretty big moves in the last few months. I'd say he's got some money to play with. I'm not a proponent of averaging down. It rarely works for me. I think Atilla is an excellent trader overall, who gets too attached to a position at times. IT
