Can you please expand on this. I agree I could never step in front of a bus. I wonder how you can do that. what kind of support do you depend on. what kind of stop do you use. I assume you place a stop immediately you allow the market to run over you. what you say just sounds crazy to me.
I admit I dont trade. I am trying to learn to trade but I study hard. I agree that what I trade must fit me. and what you do does not fit me. but I got to thinking. how nuts are you. hahahaha. or maybe I am nuts. or both of us. hahahaha. Just to open up a little about me. I have super great fear of losing. that is why I dont trade. I have deep psychological problems with I guess my emotions. I dont want to feel like a bug under a steam roller. so getting run over is a no brainer for me. hahaha.
since no one is going to stand there with you. I assume you dont mind expanding on it some. I just find it hard to believe that there is a rational way to stand in front of the train or bus. So this is my $64,000 question. there was a TV program on in the old days and contestants who later found out were cheating could double their money each week to top prize of $64,000 it was super popular until they found out they were cheating and knew the answer before they asked the question. hahahaha. that is one way to stand in front of the bus if you know the answer ahead of time.
I wanna know what method is powerful enough to stop a bus or train in its tracks. I dont believe it can be done. it is like pulling the trigger on a loaded gun playing russian roulette.
Bye the way this is a super great discussion. I just got here yesterday and thought about this last night and wanna know more. You are a nice person to share your experience with all of us newbies.
You are asking me to tell you my hard earned trading secrets it took me many long hours (thousands of hours, several man years) to figure out. Not gonna happen.
If I divulge for free what I have worked very hard to glean then other people will start using it too and by definition it won't work anymore so I would have to start all over. If you have something that works you never tell anyone.
Glad you like the post but I actually posted this thread several years ago.

So why is it so hard to believe anything is so different in trading. The industry standard is 90% of traders go broke. Why is it such a high percentage for some really smart people unless what they are basing their decisions on is not correct. There are two options , one, they are really dumb, which I can't accept. Two, what they are basing their decisions is not true or is a lie. Which seems more likely to you? You decide.

if you want to have a conversation then converse. stop putting people down. I dont take abuse well. not from you or from anyone else. You need some work on treating people nicely. My mother always said. If you can't say something nice then dont say anything at all.
