It always amazes me how things we start here in the forum can take on a life of their own. When we started the TOM I had a vision in my head of what that would look like in practice, and so far that vision has been more or less accurate. I was surprised we got a two time winner so fast, not because there were a lack of nominations but because the trade-post was just that good. Now I've run across another post that I think is just that good, and is also one that fits "outside the box" in terms of my original vision of the TOM.
This example is where a trader made a great post in another traders diary. The thread in which the trade is posted belongs to Aussie Mick. Aussie Mick is a relatively new member of the community but a candidate for TOM in his own right. His trades are sharp, is analysis is good and his posts informative. One of his trades turned out to be a loss and wouldn't you know it, one of our own members and a TOM awardee, took the time to go over that trade, analyze the chart at the time of the trade and make a great post about the set-up and outcome of said trade. Now, I know that this is technically outside the format of what we've said a TOM should look like; it's not a "live" or active trade set-up. However, it is a great post, educational and an asset to the community so I had to point it out. And now, without further ado, what could be our second two-time TOM winner, a trader we all know and love... Annovdbos
