The purpose of the thread is to help traders, just like everything on the site.

Everyone has a different view and opinion of the market. Some people look at trend lines and say "who cares, old news" while others may not have realized they were there, because they are focused on such a small zoomed-in level of a chart they don't see the bigger picture.

As with most things, I suggest you read the posts if they benefit you, and ignore them if they do not. The goal is not to get you to change your mind about anything. The goal is to see how others view the market, and you can then use that information to further your own beliefs or not. You certainly don't want to suffer from analysis paralysis, but then again there are many things posted that I had not yet considered or had time to research myself, so I continually learn from what others post.


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.
