I just got back from Tim Sykes’ seminar in Las Vegas and I had a great time. It was fun to meet the people behind many of the screen names I see on Tim’s TimAlerts site, InvestorsUnderground, and my own blog. I was also successful in avoiding various people’s offers to procure me escorts or loose women (seriously!) … I’m holding onto my marriage long-term, and that is one great trade I’ll never mess up. I also avoided gambling and getting drunk … although I am wiped out from a lack of sleep (gotta love trading on the west coast!)
You can see many photos from the seminar on Flickr (these were uploaded by SobeGemini2).
Here are some highlights:
A Tim Sandwich! Tim Bohen, me, and Tim Sykes.
Green on the screen, baby!
Me speaking at the seminar. Awkward expression. Contrary to the slide, I am up $93,000+ trading Sykes’ strategy not in 2009 but since June 2008. I am up $43,479 for the year as of October 21th 2009, following Sykes’ strategy. My total trading profit for 2009 as of 10/21/2009 is $69,348.15.
