Why Are We Here? If you are really here for profits, please read!
Ok, I have noticed... that not all are here for the profits.. otherwise they won't be bothered with ANYTHING and be focused on the MONEY/PROFITS..
I have noticed that not so few members ignore other members that DO contribute and their predicitons HAPPEN... So why anyone, in their right mind, that is here for the money, would ban/ignore ANYONE that is bringing THE JUICE to the thread/forum? The only possible explanation that I can find... other then "ignorance".. is that
some are here to lose You can find the reference in many official (professional) books..
I strongly recommend this clips, that might wake-up your mind... about WHY ARE YOU HERE... If you are here for other things, wonderful!
Would just be appreciated if you let others know maybe.. so some do not lose time giving you valuable advices/signals for free... and then being pissed on, ignored etc.. in return... I have been checking some members that might contribue here the most (in PROFIT potential terms), not bullshiting, switching/ditching accounts, giving vague "forecasts", hiding their TEs, modifying/editing/deleting posts that didn't happen.. or pretending they didn't post completely wrong signals... with HIGH PROBABILITy.. and people BLEW accounts on it...
Ok so here is the situation with some (you be the judge about the % of them, I suspect it might not be negligible)...
Ask yourself why are you here:
They seem to be retarded questions but still many people do not know (or forget) the answer or are not aware of their stance (even if subconsciously)..
Auricforecas, to answer your first question,
Me personally, I would like to think my contribution has some benefit, I can say this now as I seem to be getting somewhere, without giving what I have away, I'm prepared to put in print what I'm doing, before the event, if it helps great, if not there is no need to visit, I can be ignored, I'm trading to make money, end of, If I thought for one moment my posts are unwelcome I would pick up my football and leave the pitch.
If, as a would be trader, when you start to get results, there would be no need to be on a forum, you would consider you journey achieved, carry on in private, however, what we cannot forget is it all started somewhere for us, so we try and help like we were helped, that is not to say we are a success, we find that bit out on the journey.
You deserve the reply as you are an avid poster with good contribution, I'm sure there will be no trolls, good honest replies, will have a think on the rest and post, Detector
We are here because we are not succesfull in this game. It will hurt some egos but its the truth. We are not here to lose whe are here because we cant win.
So that is a good thing about trader... you find a lot about yourself.. It adds HEAT (fire) under the "test tube" and the traders ("elements") start to show their properties That is why I love WS people... relatively... Because you can count on them and are rather predictable.. As long as you provide them... deliver... they would have no problem kissing your ass.. to say the least... contrary to some people that would rather be broke than admit they are not all-knowing... Hope you (all) know what I am talking about Have seen many deals/business fail due to this ego shit, not to mention jealousy or whatever.. It's sad...
Losers are awesome.. Because they try... And the less juice one has... at leas he can increase the chances by TRYING... Well yeah, it would be best to increase "the juice" and number of trials...
Love this quote(s) from School for Scoundrels (2006) Read more: https://www.springfieldspringfield.c...coundrels-2006
"Tell me something- are you a loser? I asked you a question- are... you... a... loser? Um... yes? No. You see, a loser is someone who tries but fails, who shoots but misses. But I got a suspicion that you don't take any shots."
Or in Arnold's words (countless clip on this exact topic: about FAILING...
Won't search the quote but he said that real winners don't even care if they WIN or LOSE They just DO IT, REPEAT TILL FAILURE and repeat again
Or like this... Will traders FAIL? You bet... But the winners will PICK UP their asses and try again.... You have to have a passion or... it is not logical
I think that, I honestly believe.. that REAL trader (not filling orders, providing liquidity etc.. but REAL trader... like price prediction, patter recognition or whatever...) fails so many times that he doesn't even remember.. BEFORE he might get CRAZY profits...
So I think you are on the right track... I believe when you will see the right opportunity (no matter who's idea it was) you will take it.. unlike many egotrippers
BTW you guys wouldn't believe how many traders rather QUIT than admit that some other guy GOT it.. And they got the option to take PART of it... So they would be rich too, just a little less But some guys rather see to have NOTHING than to have SOMETHING out of other traders idea... I mean, I personally don't care if you make billion, if I get a million, for example Some wouldn't settle for nothing bellow 1:1... and even if they do not contribute... just have an option to RIDE along.. But to each it's own... That is why I was posting so much... in hopes someone would tell me where I am wrong maybe and we can improve, both get better money But some are just looking for confirmation of their style/philosophy.. and if they do not agree, they press ignore.. And the profitability is not even a factor of them.. That is what I was asking.. why are they here.. because doing this is inconsistent with logic... Should people be here for money, many would act much differently! Chase the money, profits, regardless who took/takes the credit for it...
In trading there is money on the line.. why are you doing this? WHY you want money? what are you going to do with it?? IF you dont have a clear answer for that AND that answer doesnt burn your ass with with 105 octane fuel with pure determination then guess what? YOU ARE NOT GONA MAKE IT !!
because you WILL fail a lot, your tiny ego WILL get destroyed and smashed into cosmic dust and spit back at you !! who da fack cares about what works and how? thats the most stupid shit a human can do!
again.. the ONLY reward from trading its $$ period
I fully agree with @Auricforecas with such a big forum/community that IN THEORY its looking for the same goal, if everyone band together, sharing, testing ideas and discarding what doesnt work, i can guarantee that EVERYONE involved would be making money left and right
you want to make $$ or lose it?? you want to be a ego filled dumbass forever or be able to actually withdraw money and enjoy it??
your call =)
The real naysayers DO NOT EVEN TRY... at anything... I know some professionals (from certain professions) that are turned off by trading, by default, they can not grasp the idea that there are no guarantees, no planned path, no ass-kissing, brown-nosing way to the PROFITS... Just market... And the market doesn't care if you (anyone) were/are a GOOD BOY...reads 100 books per month or if he had the lucky strike and the only thing he reads are STRIP/comic books or MEMEs...
P.S. I love this chart bellow.. I found analogy to trading, I just replace... Happiness with TRADING SUCESS... and INTELLIGENCE with TIME/JUICE... Which would mean.. that should one spent a lot of time or have a good amount of juice... markets doesn't care if he has 10 PhDs... work "HARD" 20h a day... OR!!! Doesn't GIVE a shit.. about anything... Sleep till noon and trade what he dreamt about.. and make massive profits... And yes, I have met a guy who has extraordinary -don't know what exactly-.. pattern recognition? and can make TRADES out of NAKED chart without ANYthing (zero other tools)... and makes crazy predictions... Do not know how much of it was luck but... it seemed impressive to many (anyone that was shown certain amount of demonstrations)...
And f. yes.. Let's get together and MAKE BIG MONEY.. with group effort! I do not give a single shit who gets the credit as long as we are on the profit train
nice thread with good clips "recommendations"
1) FF itself like UN-United Union
2) during our abysmal ignorance, FF among the great sources of our "later knowlege"
3) we seek suitable environment as forex traders. do not expect to find us in football fields, or as shepherds in deserts.

How you do one thing is how you do everything
And then you say average joe is always complaining.
Guess we all know now what type of joe you fit in, and it isnt the average.
I've been waiting for someone to put big balls in this kinda thread. Me myself been having problems with inner-self. How small ballsy I am at trading even when I get a really good forecasting while just looking at anything with any indicators because I put my own ego aside but when I need to decide whether to click Buy/Sell button. My ego starts dumping pure BS on me because of how overconfident I am and get into things too early.
Might as well trade with someone else by my side while bragging how shit my TA is for him but at least get some of the perspective on why this ACTUAL Trade can make profit's (Doesn't matter if its only couple of cents or couple of quick bucks)
Then I understood when I was trading in one of the great groups in my country how everyone was trading together and making really good F*cking profits out of the markets because everyone combined their perspective(Sadly I want to participate with not only them too see other sleepless traders who keeps tracking what are the markets are showing to them).
Everything aside for me Forex/Metals and etc what is possible to trade is squeeze the juice out of the markets to make my balance dance in profits after good week of trading. Losses are minimal to wake you up that you're LIVE trading not cuddling some demo account with decent performance and feeling fine while You can make any amount of money into triple, quadruple % profit.
PS. For your information ,people join forums to exchange information not because they loose or win...
The thing that gets most under people skin here his saying they are not profitable, it really pisses them off.
One day i will open my mouth to a real trader and he is going to slap me in the face with a 1 or 2 year account statement and ill be fucked, till then is one or two lies, start ignoring me and move on to tell lies to other people i guess
