So - in a video, you could show TWS and it would show live trades going in & out. I don't see how it could be faked on a video.

Doesn't matter. If you want to deceive someone, million ways to do it. Here are a few off the top of my head:

1) Video shows you made huge money. But prior few days you lost bigger, not on video.
2) Video shows huge money and weekly gains. Statement posted showing huge profits. But another account exists hedging this one, taking opposite/reverse trades, which has huge losses that you don't see.

I'm just saying that "proof" of ones profitability does not exist. You could know the trader in person. You could see their home, their cars. Unless you are their accountant, you really don't know if they are profitable trading. Another possibility would be if you were their broker, and had reason to believe there was no hedge account elsewhere.

Obviously, scam artists will continue to scam. And the rest of us are just trying to trade, and of course some of us are quite successful at it but people will continue to question even the legit among us because it is hard for them to believe people can be successful trading. Goes both ways.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
