I vote we delete FF and replace it with Hanover's post, its all you need to know.
DislikedI would read and re-read posts by those whom I thought were knowledgeable and experienced traders, desperately seeking out ‘superior’ mechanical rules and techniques for entries and exits. I was crestfallen when their best advice amounted to vague references to risk management, patience and discipline. More recently, I’ve come to see a reason for this; namely that for these discretionary traders, entries and exits were acquired skills and nuances that had gradually come to be part of their ‘unconscious competence’.

DislikedYeah, I hear that. That wouldn't even be so bad in and of itself but, what gets me is how damn contrary so many people feel obliged to be. I honestly don't think that it matters what points are made. They're just so eager to jump on the "other side" of a discussion. Immature egos trolling the forum - really irks me just about every day here.Ignored
Disliked...If this post helps to accelerate the learning curve for anybody, and maybe even create an ‘aha’ moment, then I feel that writing it was definitely worthwhile. It’s possibly one of my last allowable posts in this part of the forum...
DislikedThe real lesson to take from his posting is the way he thinks, the way he uses logic to strip away rubbish and come to (reasonably) logical conclusions.Ignored
DislikedHanover, by his own admission, has never been a consistently profitable trader so it seems his 4-year journey of discovery and conclusions haven't been able to be put to any practical use in his trading.Ignored
