MaoXian Before The Advent Of Dummy Trading at Trader’s Narrative

maoxian old site new site logos.pngI was going to keep this to myself… but what can I do? I’m a saint. I give, and give and give. And then I give a little bit more ;)

You may consider yourself a true fanboy if you have read every single thing on But you’d be wrong. That’s because there was a site before the Chairman started his current blog. Way back to the bubblicious year of 2000. Way back before a certain ‘Matt’ decided he needed better software with which to ‘blog’. Way back then, Chairman Maoxian held court in some pretty simple but zen-like html digs (site design was borrowed from Dack Ragus I believe). Anyway, the site was filled with market commentary, trading setups and specific trades (with actual blotters!).

Many believe this old site to have been lost to the mists of time. But I’m going to tell you how to find it. If all you know about the Chairman’s trading style is ‘dummy trading’ prepare to be dazzled. I won’t give it all away but he apparently had a penchant for the short side. My favourite parts are probably the ‘Charts From Hell’ and ‘Short-Term Trading Lessons’.

So where can you find it?

Here. At the Internet Archives. Where else?

Just click on the date you want and burrow deep into the ‘old site’. There is a lot there and I’ve found only a few images or charts that don’t load.

For extra fanboy points use a website extractor, like HTTrack, to grab a complete copy for your hard drive.
