Has anyone run into problems with telling people "too much" about what you do? Do people ask you to teach them/show them? What do you do? What is the best way to respond?
Those of you who have been around the block, what are your experiences on this?

When people want the "long story shortened" about my strategy. I tell them to read up on RSI, Stochastic, Momentum, Keltner Bands, etc. The idea of studding math shuts down most conversations. Then I start to describe the 10 trading rules W. D. Gann used. By the time I finish the 10th rule, the conversation has moved on. My third line of defense, which has never been needed, is to talk about the history of futures.

Most people don't care what I do, they would rather tell me what they do.
