Look, I published articles showing that it wasn’t a bad idea to get long on the correction, and hopefully you have, what with Spain being bailed out and all. But disregard that. This evening we talk baseball.
And honestly, we are talking baseball because I’ve been at my son’s all-day tournament, where they won 2 and lost 1, losing the championship game 14 – 12. Frankly speaking, I’m worn out and don’t have the mental or physical capacity to do much more than brag on my boy a bit.
He’s been crushing the ball, and had several key hits today. But rather than describing them, I thought I’d just post the video. I have other videos from big hits today, but you can read his name on his jersey and I don’t need internet crazies harassing my family, so one video will have to suffice.
This hit was during the championship game. You can see from the scoreboard they were down 9 -6 at the time.
Yes, that is me with the somewhat too-high-pitched whoop after the hit. You’ll have to trust me that I was hoarse by that point. It is not a true representation of my manly whoop. Don’t miss my littlest making his cameo appearance as bat boy.

nice swing for a youngster..full follow through and he parks it!
chivo, man, I tell you it was huge day for him!
haha was just thinking the same… solid cut. better than mine
He should have went three, easy.
I wish. He’s not the fastest.
Ah, I didnt see the ball hit the cut off. Yeah, he could only get two.
I stumbled onto your blog few days back. Thank you for the excellent posts. I find them interesting, informative and practical.
I am primarily a systematic discretionary trader. Lately my interest is in mechanical trading. It seems you have quite a bit of experience on this front. I am wondering if you could write a post summarizing the steps (like best practices) you would follow in crafting a mechanical system using an example.
My interest is primarily in your thought process and steps you would follow and doesn’t matter whether the example has positive edge or not.
Thanks Atrad. I will look in the archives and see if I have already done something like that before. I think I may have. If not, is there a particular type of system you would like to see me write about?
Hi Woodshedder – Thanks. I will look forward to your post. I will do another search in the archive. Regarding type of system, I don’t have particular preference.
For discretionary, I use a channel (20,2) breakout for trend direction and then play in direction of trend any pullbacks to mid channel (i.e., mean reversion).
