I know you think you're blowing me off, but you just come across as not having a clue of what you're doing.

Yes, but even an artist can explain how they do things, or their thought process. You are being vague because it covers up a lack of, well, knowing what you're doing.

So now that you've criticized him, please offer some positive contribution by giving him examples based on your experience.


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.

Trade what you see, not what you think.
