HALL OF FAME of ET Educational Threads

  1. Is there a list of the best ever ET threads anywhere? The really useful ones, top 0.1%-1% say? If there is we can close down this thread. If not, then I suggest we start a ‘thread of threads’…All threads allowed, especially the old ones that are ‘closed’ and don’t show up at the top of Search lists.Nothing commercial please. #1     Jul 9, 2010 Share

    I have seen a couple of them in the past. And a couple like yours requesting them. It seems a good idea, but they tend not to stick.Ok, an idea to make this stick. Only users with 1000 ET posts who have also banked $1 million + in lifetime trading profits are allowed to submit a thread into the HALL OF FAME. We have to take the $1 million claim on trust  I don’t qualify on either score.Who is going to be the first 1000 ET poster to refer a thread into the HALL OF FAME?? #2     Jul 9, 2010 Share
  3. RAYDamn, I have a bunch of great threads saved over my few years … I’ll try to remember this thread when I reach my 1000 posts; I figure at least another 12-15 years, and post them up for you. #3     Jul 9, 2010 Share

    You’ve got a bit of a problem. 1) While many threads have useful nuggets, I would suggest that almost all have too much garbage to be considered hall of fame worthy. 2) Those individuals who qualify on the $1MM prerequisite, are amazingly few and far between here. Of the active members, you are realistically talking maybe a couple dozen. Only 1/2 of whom were able to continue over a span of several years. Which means that 1/2 lucked into a strategy that only works under certain conditions. 3) I’ll use myself as an example at the risk of sounding arrogant. My annual returns are significant, but there is no way that I would even consider starting a thread to publicly detail how I do it. A strategy with consistent abnormal returns is heavily guarded by anyone who discovers it. Consistently successful traders mainly come around here because they spend a lot of time staring at a computer screen which gets very boring, and almost nobody in their personal life would be able to contribute intelligently to a conversation on trading and markets. So this is entertainment to pass the time. They do not come here to explain “how-to” in any useful detail. Almost without exception, those willing to spell out “how-to” are not successful traders. You’ll find that the truly successful traders generally stop hanging around the boards much as there is nothing here beyond entertainment value.Sorry to be such a cynic. #4     Jul 9, 2010 Share

  8. benwmQuote from Cache Landing:

    You’ve got a bit of a problem.Thank you for your post. You are right. I am always looking for short cuts. I had hoped for a nice list of the 100 all time great threads to magically appear at my request. Wishful thinking of course.I decided to do some of my own research, painstakingly reading through numerous past threads and slowly but surely unearthing some nuggets of gold. To my amazement, there were some great traders lurking out there in Elite Trader in the past. And some great threads. More so than today it seems, but that could change I suppose…And since the research is ongoing I will be nominating various threads as candidates for the HALL OF FAME over the ensuing weeks. Perhaps at a later stage when there are 100 or so candidates we can narrow down the field depending on the feedback received. I welcome contributions from others, since through working together on such a list it will be far more comprehensive than I could achieve on my own. I believe in chaos theory so from humble beginnings ths thread may even be of use to others.And without further ado, here are the initial six candidates (in no particular order) for the HALL OF FAME…1.Grinding it out, day after day

      LikesWithout tooting my own horn too much, the longshot thread was extremely profitable for those that followed it. The education was that there’s a bunch of money to be made in those so called high risk stocks, which are actually no more risky that the “real” market that most people have been losing their asses on. The whole market is one big scam P&D, and the sooner you realize that, the sooner you’ll make some money. Gave up a long time ago trying to convince the Mod’s of that reality. Too bad really, cause it was fun and profitable. Still is!

Not sure you can really nominate your own thread but 118 pages long, it obviously generated some interest. What’s the basic idea behind the stock picking? Is there a common theme – getting on board a strong chart with some positive fundamentals (O’Neil CANSLIM?), purely technical (Darvas?) or looking for undervalued businesses (Buffett)?Was it long only or did you discuss shorting stocks also? I notice the thread pretty much ended before the Bear/Lehman failures.All illiquid stocks I presume, bit surprised Mods stopped the thread after all the ET mud slinging that goes on around this place.

  7. benwmI’m guessing ET has existed over a decade or so, and ten HALL OF FAME candidates per year seems ‘about right’ (less than one per month), so as discussed earlier, when we reach 100 threads my work is done. 100 threads sounds a lot to some, but it still probably represents less than 0.1% of all threads ever started.That leaves 30 places up for grabs. I have kept a few borderline threads back so if we get no other suggestions over the next couple of weeks I’ll post them.I’ve gained a lot from doing the research so it’s good to hear via PM that some of you have also benefited. That was the original intention. These HALL OF FAME threads are starting points for discussion, that is all. Markets change, strategies change, technology changes…but in many ways the markets remain the same, and the quality threads are everlasting…(End of cheesy post  ) #37     Jul 25, 2010 Share

    http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=55445&perpage=6&highlight=brex&pagenumber=1I’ve always been interested in trader’s best and worst days and how they process it. Also interesting to see the differences in the amounts involved. Who’s a piker?  And I found this one now, “What is the worst one day loss you ever had?” (which also includes profit posts). http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=74408&perpage=6&highlight=emc&pagenumber=1 And the thread “i’ve lost 400k the last 2 months i’m quitting” which includes the story of Mark Cook http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&postid=1116566&highlight=Mark+Cook#post1116566And my own personal loss http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&postid=1179612&highlight=Mark+Cook#post1179612 Also see the next post which was for a lot more money although not his own, but he did lose his cut.

His quest at trading was an exercise in futility and there was a good reason the thread was shut down…But since we are at selfpromotion, my Dragon pattern thread and Pekelo’s 2nd gap rule thread (not to mention the ADU and SDD threads) actually make money….I am too lazy to post the links, sorry… #55     Aug 8, 2010 Share

      84. The Surf Report
      http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5285
       More…Tjankyou Ben. I’m enjoying this thread and learned much from elite and the surf report in particular. Mr pekelo never liked surf. It’s a jealousy thing I guess. The surf had a huge following here hence started his own competing site. That’s why the thread was closed. But thanks for the memories! There amazingly successful runs of wins on that thread and lots of solid actionable info. Too bad it’s closed. #56     Aug 8, 2010 Share

      Who would have guessed that anyone would resort to self promotion on Elite Trader? But that is actually good news since it means the current HALL OF FAME has credibility.Sorry Bloomberg13 your recommendation is out of the HALL OF FAME unless someone with >1000 posts can recommend also (not marketsurfer though or one his other aliases!). I think that’s fair.Anyone except for Pekelo care to put forward any of his threads? #57     Aug 9, 2010 Share

      LikesI am still holding back some quality threads for inclusion and FWIW one of Pekelo’s threads is on the long list for inclusion. But I think it’s better at this stage for others to contribute to the HALL OF FAME list and I’ll stay impartial as much as possible.There will be some revisions to the final list based on feedback and future appraisals and when I am satisfied with the final version it will be posted as a new thread in a fresher format…There is a deletion from the current list:-
