Introduction

Since some people were so incredibly kind to say things like these:

Originally by: Candy Oshea

I also think its very sad to lose such a pillar to the community that you have become.



I wanted to reward them with some little farewell goodies.

Here you may find some little free information that could end up to be useful for someone.


RL and EvE trading course with videos

I had this halted early in its deployment since CCP stated they wanted to grab money off and was waiting for the official stance due to be published in August.
Now, I am not sure that my departure from EvE will do, because creating this course is a gruelling effort (just look at the video intros, maybe they suck but costed me days of RL work) and I don't have any incentive to finish it.

Anyway, until CCP lawyers will send me a cease and desist statement, feel free to look at it.

There's just the intro, yet you'll see it's a VERY long intro composed of some chapters.
The value of the thing is, you will NOT find another place on the internet where someone who is making money will really reveal you the mindset to do so.
You will find trillions of random (dis)information, while all you needed to learn are simple words, to learn to fish instead of being fed the fish (for a price).

Therefore, despite there is not a single page full of pesky jargon, it's really all what you'd need to get started with the right foot.

If you want to check it out, it's here: linkage.

I might add new chapters in the next months, I suggest interested people to subscribe to the RSS feed. Unless CCP will create some payware policy for third party sites.

In that case, I warmly suggest interested people to read it by 80-ish days, because then the website expires and everything will be lost: trading course, charity, audits, balances, searchable public investments archive, EvE utilities. Also, in that date, most of the EvE forums audits and trading pictures and trading graphs will be lost.

Accurate data feeds in game data and graphs

Some might recall how I started a data feed service, as described in this thread: Experiment #03 On demand game market data and graphs.

I am going to post some of the data (with updates) come the next weeks, while I can still post.


Procedure to use the data and show it

It seems long but once you have done it 2-3 times, you'll take 20 seconds.

1) Download the zip file(s) I will provide and expand it somewhere handy.

2) Download and install Multicharts Discretional Trader.
It's free for our use.

3) If it asks you, choose "Offline mode". Sooner or later it will ask you that, make sure to choose Offline mode.

A main window with something like this will appear (it will NOT have the items loaded yet, it'll be empty):

4) If you are a power user you may want to learn about how to create a workspace, i.e. a container of EvE charts.

5) Press the seventh icon from the left: "Run quote manager". A popup window with the same name will appear.

6) Go in the File menu, then select Map ASCII...

7) Another window will pop up. It got a "Path" edit box with a "Browse..." button nearby. Press the button and select the folder where you saved and expanded the data I gave you at point 1).

8) A list of 1 or more entries will populate the "Found files" list below the Path.

9) You have to look for the item name you want to graph and then click on double click on the "Category" grid cell next to it and select "Forex". Yes it's not Forex but it will load settings good for our data.

19) Do the same for the nearby "Exchange" grid cell and select "FOREX" too.

20) Click on the check box to the left of the item(s) you just set up.

21) Press OK. A "item(s) have been mapped succesfully" message will appear.

22) You should see the Quote manager window with a "Forex" entry in the tree view to the left. Feel free to click on it to see the item you just imported. If you double click on it you may edit its description and so on.

IE when I imported Biomass, I typed:

Symbol name: BIOMS
Description: Biomass - The Forge

Do NOT alter anything else.

23) Close the Quote Manager window, you'll return back to the main window.

24) Now click on the fifth icon, "New Chart Window".

A "format instrument" pop up with a list of loaded EvE items will appear. Pick the one you want (you will see just one the first time you do this) and press OK.

Now you should see a graph on screen. If you don't like it, you can right click on it and "Format window" to change colors and whatever.

25) To be on the same page of my methodologies, right click on the graph again, go in the "Format instruments" popup, select the "Style" tab.

26) Finally, from the Chart Type list, select "Candlestick" and from Chart Style, select a green for "up", red for "down" and grey for "wick". Select "use as default" at the bottom of the popup so you won't have to repeat this setup again.

27) You are done!

How to do trade stuff profitably:

1) Go to the bottom of the screen, click "Resolution" (see picture above) and select Monthly (step 1), Weekly (step 2), Daily (step 3). In step 1

In step 1 we draw the monthly price levels by using the "Horizontal line drawing tool" (see picture above), one per price swing, touching the tops or bottoms of the candle bars. Color will be purple. We determine what price is doing (going up / down / ranging) aka WPD depending on how the swings are going.
In step 2 we draw the weekly price levels just for the last weeks, in the same way we did above. Color will be cyan. Again we determine WPD and if it's discordant with the monthly WPD we have to switch to another item, market is not safe to trade ATM.
In step 3 we draw the daily price levels just for the last days, in the same way we did above. Color will be orange. We determine where price is going aka WPG. Depending on the candles being able to close above a certain price level or not, we can know what the markets tells us about what we should do.


The end result will be something like this:

http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/9590/20110718plexd01.png
Image changed to a link. Spitfire


In the daily price time frame we seek for:

1) Retracement on a weekly price level (i.e. price dips, touches a weekly price level and bounches up).
2) That a price action pattern forms. IE a BUOB, a pin bar and so on. Google for "price action patterns" for a description. All you ever need to learn are BUOB DBLHC (and the bearish mirrors) and pin bars. That's it. End of what you ever need to learn to be profitable in RL and EvE trading.
3) If the pattern (in daily) suggests the same price direction we saw for weekly and monthly, we are good to trade it!

If you want to learn the whole procedure, here's the official English thread. I did not invent the method so credits go to FXGroup for doing so and sharing.

That's it, so simple it hurts. No need for expensive garbage or voodoo teachers. It'll take practice though, months of it. Simple <> Easy.


Also, always invest what you can afford to lose. As CCP says, EvE is real!

It's empty because when I was about to go on with the next course chunk, CCP announced their brilliant: "you 3rd party developers advertise us, make EvE better, do it for free? Cool now pay us $99 for the honor".

Therefore I halted any further development until they come out with a new, official statement. I don't mind spending weeks to create stuff for everyone to enjoy but I am not going to also pay for it.

You don't have to respond. You're ragequitting, and have openly stated it. You dance around the fact, but the simple fact is that you can't handle the game. You're a 'bittervet', who has nothing better to do than count spacebucks and whine on the forums. Good riddance. I will not miss you.

I am not going to risk creating more videos and content with CCP IP until I see an official reply.

Also, I don't have anything with EvE or its balance or its mechanics so keep the bittervet term for yourself.

Also, I have yet to see a ragequitter who instead of slamming the door and disappearing, gives 2 months of pre-advice, closes the open deals, keeps writing articles and giving away material and so on.

If you class this as "rage", then you have quite low standards for rage.

Finally, I don't even know who you are, therefore the fact you won't miss me does not impact on me the least.

I'd be hit if some of the great guys I shared this small part of my life with would say your same bilious statements. But they don't.

Edit:

Stop the offtopics.
When I will make the "I R RAGED AND QUIT'N" thread then feel free to bless us with your superior social skills.
This is a thread for trading, ie what this sub-forum is about.

"no $99", it's right there, white on black, in a Dev Blog from CCP.

You claim you're quitting, but if I understand you correctly you're not actually quitting, just milking sympathy while planning on taking up your operations later again?


Edit:
if you think this is offtopic, it's not. In your introduction you say you are giving out "farewell goodies" in this thread, so it's perfectly ontopic to question your "farewell".

You could have also read the attached discussion and read my posts, so you'd know I indeed read that blog.

Many things in life (including being auditor in EvE) make me exclusively believe in final, set in stone and proven facts. Their intention to backtrack from their own decision is not enough to prove me they *feel* they were wrong. Therefore I want to see the official August statement and THEN proceed.

No, I have to quit even if I'd really love to stay. If they replied my last re-opened petition and backtracked then I'd definitely play, because I love EvE, the setting, many players here and even friends. But again, I don't believe they will backtrack and in that case it's over, even if I hate it so much.

Either quit now or quit later, or keep playing, but dragging quitting out over a few months and then not quitting is truly unprecedented. As I said, it is milking sympathy. "I would like things to be differently, but alas, the world is against me, so I must leave - but not yet, because I can't just deprive the community of such valuable services as I provide." And you are right of course. Look at how you, a valuable member of the community, are treated by those evil developpers! They won't even respond to you personally while they're preparing a statement for the rifraf! It is truly outrageous and I am sure everyone feels for you.

I have been told a lot of things but never that I milked sympathy. Why should I?
I had all what I wanted to have already and I did not even ask to be showcased at Fanfest or anything.

Getting some e-fame in an obsolescent forum of a niche game is not on my plans. If you think it happened, then it has been a byproduct of other activities. Also, you understimate me if you believe my end was to get e-famous on a forum. I had well other objectives and I hit them already.

VV, I think you just want to quit and are looking for an excuse. Suicide-by-cop and all that.

Seriously. If your condition for continuing to play is that CCP fulfill your demand of direct, 1-on-1 attention for a made-up problem that you need resolved, I'm sorry to say it, but it's just not going to happen. You either have to know that it's not going to happen, or I question your sanity.

And really, I'm leaning toward the latter, because every single thing about this drama you're putting on right now screams mental issues. You've purposely made the details surrounding your threatened exit vague and foggy, refusing to get into specifics, claiming that you're not allowed to talk about it or whatever. This is, of course, all just a way of puffing up your own self-importance. You want to tell us all that you have a vewwwy, vewwwy important reason for quitting, but you don't want to talk about it. It's top secret. You could be assassinated for divulging too much. Puh. Leeze. For real.

You may be/have been of some value to this particular community within EVE, but you still are, at the same time, one of the biggest drama queens I've ever witnessed in any MMO I've ever played. And honestly, I can't wait to see you go, because you seem to be more drama and less value these days. The only perhaps complimentary thing I can tell you is that I hope leaving brings you some kind of peace.

(Also, as far as I'm concerned, this is on topic, because every single thread you've started lately has been at least peripherally about you quitting the game. It's completely and totally fair to comment on that aspect of your dealings in these threads. And moreover, I think it's a worthwhile record to have in the case that you do continue playing EVE, because it certainly reflects on your credibility and trustworthiness, in my opinion. Not that I personally would ever want to trust you with anything of mine in the first place.)

(Also interesting is how you continuously argue that CCP has a personal vendetta against you, and yet a moderator will almost certainly sanitize this thread of "off-topic" posts on your behalf. Yep, CCP totally hates your guts. They hate you enough to make sure that posterity forgets how foolish others thought you were.}

I will stop replying to this kind of posts because it's just people carrying over their known open antipathy and making this thread not what I wanted.
There's the other thread about VAHCO closure to harp against me, why do you have to do that in the thread for price data downloadable price ZIPs is beyond me.

Therefore I am going to stop replying to these posts in this thread and will only post ZIPped data. Keep flaming, it's 3 years that people like you do that, it achieved zero and will continue doing so.

In the mean time I am going to try being constructive (despite ofc I am not happy for the situation):

Now please just gtfo and stop posting the 99 problems stuff for us. Your palm-reading marketology makes you look like nothing more than a charlatan and it's clear from the underwhelming feedback that nobody is going to bother with your website.

Have a nice life and be sure to let us all know when you get rich irl for we poor unfortunate 90% loosers.

Hey VV, thanks for all the stuff you've done and for leaving your website up for such a long time before leaving. You need any help wrapping things up?

As for the rest of you sorry excuses of humanity, what the f*$# is your problem? You sound just like high school bullies or religious fanatics shouting at their victim of the day. Seriously, you tribalistic fanboi fanaticism is disgusting to anyone with a any sense of ethics. I guess Eve just attracts the worst of humanity.

Thiny veiled sales pitch is thiny veiled.

Honestly if you can't admit this is a scam to funnel more people over to your cohort at forexfactory, that is fine. But you may want to stop the endless stream of angsty self-pity if you want to make any more sales before you go.
