Part Science, Part Art, Part Psychology...everything is equally important in my trading plan.

Country and City: Québec City, Province de Québec, Canada although I have a house in southeast France and the midwest United States. I'm a citizen of France, the United States, and Canada. My primary residence is I'm raising my family.


Since my teenage years, I've always used M.A. Perry because my legal name initials correlate with the initials of my Lakota name given to me by my father & grandmother and Lakota childhood friends.

Funny story, I was almost named after Billy Mills (Oglala, Lakota Sioux) who had won the Olympic Gold medal in the 10,000-meter run at the 1964 Olympic games. My parents skipped a semester of college to attend the Olympics, saw his performance, and then did some traveling...several years later I was born.

My father was a long-distance runner too when he was in college...continuing to run when he was an officer in the U.S. Army. Thus, he's a big fan of the sport of running.

I'm trilingual...French, Lakota / Lakȟótiyapi, and English. My children are also trilingual and speak the same languages. Also, my family is Catholic and educated in the parochial Catholic school system for several generations.


Meaning of my native name @


I was born in France, raised in Chicago (northside/Evanston area), and spent my summers in South Dakota and Kentucky (Military family). I spent many wonderful years moving back n forth between these primary locations of residence. Elementary in Kentucky...High School years in Chicago and South of France. Summers living with my grandmother (Lakota, Sioux) in South Dakota until 21...learning the language, and the culture of my ancestors and learning the stories passed down through many generations to my grandmother & family about our family history from the 1700s.
I'm not a big city person. In contrast, I'm more of a rural person (Kentucky, South Dakota, small village in South France) with a big city attitude (Chicago) and a tough/disciplined 4th generation military background.
Today, I'm a single parent, raising my kids in Québec City, Canada...reconnecting our family history & stories here in Québec City because Québec City is the location of the split in our family history many generations ago.

IRC Chat Room Name: wrbtrader (formerly known as NihabaAshi) and I've never used any other online user name in chat rooms or forums besides NihabaAshi or wrbtrader. I changed my user name from NihabaAshi to wrbtrader because of racist attacks at other forums...many thought the username was Muslim or that I was Muslim. In reality, NihabaAshi is a Japanese Candlestick term (Nihaba) in combo with a martial arts term (Ashi).
TheStrategyLab was initially a discussion forum (a side project after graduate school) for a few years during the internet bubble prior to adding the website and chat room. The first forum was hacked/destroyed which is why today I have a strong dislike of hackers and those using the internet to exercise their hidden agendas under the façade of a trader.
More info about my personal & professional background:

Favorite Vacation Locations: Olympic National Park (winter hiking & winter camping), South Dakota, Chicago, and Southeast France. Yet, I plan to have vacations in the New York area of the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain for landscape photography and research into my family history...location where my ancestors from the Dakotas met the French fur traders. Later, merging with other indigenous groups for hunting and war that took them into the St. Lawrence River valley and then into Québec. Fascinating stories passed down from generation to generation in my family in France and the Dakotas...a history I do not want to be lost.

Camping and hunting with friends that I served in the military with...I have been treating my friends to my favorite dish since I was little and learned from my father...Wohanpi Soup (image on the left) with fry bread.

I'm very proud that my first steps as a toddler were on vacation from France to South Dakota...on the sacred land of my ancestors...wobbling with no shoes and dirt squeezing up between my toes while I walked from my parents to my grandmother. I'm just as proud to be raising my children in Québec City, Canada where our family history had split and then started in France.

The below-redacted screenshot images represent what many users in the private chat rooms were able to see via live screen sharing...during live trading with real money. I took a quick screenshot while in screen sharing for marketing purposes, for my private trade journal documentation (the other two monitors not shown for security reasons), and for verification that I traded on that specific trading day I posted real-time trades in the chat room for those that were not in the chat room or not allowed in the screen sharing for whatever reason with others that were allowed.

The live screen sharing was two way (all users in the screen sharing can see each other broker trade execution platform) and qualification for access to the screen sharing were DOKs, real-time trades in the chat room, brokerage statements and quantitative statistical analysis via any of the recommended professional trade journal software for a minimum of two months.

In addition, the redacted screenshot images were used to document who was in the free chat room on that specific trading day for my records. Also, archive chat logs are posted below each screenshot image so that you can read the entire conversation for that specific trading day in the free chat room.

Also, I document my trading like the below images every trading day (several different times per day) in combo with my daily brokerage statements so that I know what my monitors looked like on a specific trading day at different times of the day because I trade differently as volatility changes throughout the trading day. Therefore, I use different templates in my chart configurations and my broker PnL statement screens that correlate to different types of market conditions.

The images are then stored in my private (not public) trade journal and some are then posted here at the website / forum just in case someone says they didn't see any verification or were not invited to the screen sharing. Now you know why I talk about volatility in the chat logs throughout the trading day because without that info...the daily broker statements, quantitative statistical analysis of my trades and images will be missing an important piece of the puzzle to profitable trading.

Note: Screen sharing is a two-way street (you must show your screen when you're viewing our screen) and to qualify for access to screen sharing with other users and TheStrategyLab: Request a private thread and then post DOKs for the tutorial chapters 1 - 3, DOKs for FVB trade signal strategy, brokerage statements (simulator or real money), quantitative statistical analysis of your trading via WRB Analysis and screenshots of timestamp trade fills in your broker trade execution platform that correlates to the trades you posted in the free chat room.

The above is what any serious trader should be doing to document their trading regardless of what trade method they may be using.

Brokerage statements and quantitative statistical analysis must only be posted in your private thread. If you don't have a private a message here at the forum or send us an email to request a private thread.
