For people that know what being a (trading) professional is all about. Making money.
The rest is (irrelevant) conversation, although fun at times.
Decided to open this thread. Was offering to others to open it but they didn't so time is now.
The purpose of this thread is to talk EURUSD and MONEY/PROFITS that comes out of this trading. That is it. I have seen many people get banned because thread starters didn't agree with directions, predictions, views, rules or whatever... Even if the predictions happened (later), people remained ignored/banned, which is sad... Therefore I love the free thread, like EURUSD thread, where the thread starter went away so the thread is free of dictators etc... This EURUSD thread is very good, very free, everyone can say what they want (if it gets pass the global moderator aka forum rules) BUT I would like another like, like this one, where we would focus on PRO objective "a little more", so MONEY, PROFITS in any shapes, from from any source. Either you like someone or not. Why not work together towards the same objective, even if we might not like each other? That is being a professional is all about. Think about it.
The idea is very simple (MONEY/PROFITS out of EURUSD trades), very few seems to get this... Would recommend to people to read "Why are we here" thread".
RULES: Bring "the juice", "deliver alpha", as much as you can, post. That is it... The rest is up to you and to each person to either read your posts or not... I do not care what you type but would love if it will be towards the MONEY/PROFIT objective, at least eventually or in majority of times
(NOT) Banning: I do not plan to ignore/ban anyone (even if they insult me or whatever, I do not care, I am here for the money/profits; so specially if they BRING/DELIVER it, I do not mind about the rants, trips or whatever. So BE FREE, type what you like, just try to focus on money/profit/juice/alpha... It is up for you people to decide for yourself who to follow/read or who to not...), because I do not think anyone should be an authority to do that... Each member has to decide for himself either to skip/ignore someone or now... I haven't ignored anyone since I joined but there were many reasons, believe it. So if someone will spam too much or whatever, I think the global moderator will remove him far before we would even think about that.. But for maybe special occasion, I might post poll if someone is going to be (temp) banned.. But again. I do not believe in bans since I believe anyone should decide for himself. Would also ask global moderator to have a higher tolerance level, specially if contributors do contribute (good signals, views) even if they are "out of place"Which brings us to the next thing..
MAIN OBJECTIVE (as I understand it) is to make PROFITS (MONEY) with TRADING. Right? So as long as people are contributing towards that goal then I do not care if they are polite, rude or whatever... The main objective for this Pro thread is MONEY. PROFITS.. If someone is looking for leader, "daddy", icon or whatever, maybe other threads will be of more interest.
BEING A PROFESSIONAL: It doesn't matter if you like the person, if he is rude, polite, same country or other part of the world. Absolutely nothing matters EXCEPT... can you make MONEY out of his trades/posts or not? If you are here for MONEY/PROFIT (pro style) anyway.
EXTRA: As long as it goes within forum (not thread) rules, you can even talk ego as many like, insult or whatever BUT if combined with ALPHA. So do/talk/write what you want but please also be CREATIVE, beneficial towards the main objective: MONEY/PROFIT. If you do not what some person is saying (even if his posts could bring you money), you are free to ignore person himself or just skip the post.. I do not recommend ignore in any shape or form because you might miss something.
Yes, there are many example when people ignore/ban the person that could help their profits. But that is their choice, even if posts might beneficial for their profits. Yeah that seem to be confusing since many claim! to be here for the money...
If you need a friend, get a dog (Gekko, Wall Street (1987) movie)
If you are here for money, profits, post, argue, do whatever, but DELIVER as much ALPHA as you can... You may even find that the best traders/signals that might not be kind, polite or whatever... Sometimes you have to choose between kindness and profitability. It is what it is... You have to ask yourself, do you want money/profits OR kindness, respect, egotrip, arguing, etc etc... Yeah if you can find all in one package, good for you, but if you would have to choose (I know I had to)... I for sure fill choose to follow the posts that could bring me most money/profits... Kindness is not essential, just bring the juice... At least in my book.
You know how one can (some/important) advantage over many traders? Just focus on MONEY/PROFITS... Many choose to focus on ego(trip), who was right, who was wrong, who is smarter/est or whatever... I personally do not care about any of that garbage.. I do not mind to lose the argument (I even admit when the other guy was right) AND win the money! But MANY choose to "WIN" in the argument/ego/cockfight AND lose the MONEY. Think about it... Check the ignore lists of certain people... Cross-check and you might form a picture.
TEST (multiple choice), IF you would have to choose between, how would you reply:
- Do you want to "be smartest" (in forums) or WIN MONEY?
- Do you want to have the biggest.. (in forums) or WIN MONEY?
- Do you want respect (in the forum) or WIN MONEY (also bringing profitable posts, signals to people here)?
- Do you want KINDNESS or MONEY?
- Do you "talk" (only) with people that you LIKE or (also) with people that might bring you potential MONEY/PROFITS (with their posts), regardless if you like them or not, or even hate them?
If have chosen 5/5, you have the basic requirement to even have a potential to make some money in this racket... if you ask me
That is it. GO...
Recommended: Ask yourself for every post/member (does it contribute to my profits, even potentially or not) and you shall be fine.
I myself will be posting a little later, after done some important test in the following weeks... Plan to publish LIVE TE with even live balance, for you to see how it is possible to get done... Tell me if you would like that. Tnx.
Some motivation, illustration, idea...
