but I am sure everyone will agree that by deciding to ignore an individual's advice is obviously not a legitimate reason to ban someone.

Poorly worded on my part. What I meant was that your posts are harmful to the community, and if you continue in this direction I will stop them from continuing.

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Mike,

Would you be able to explain to us why they are harmful to the community? i.e. what about these posts will cause harm to the community.

I want to make a tremendous contribution to this excellent forum, as I said before, I consider it my workplace and university.

I apologize if anything about my posts or determined attitude have offended you, it definitely was not my intent.

God Bless,

BF.

Mike,

If I can make a guess.. it's that your comments/questions reflect what majority of retail traders (myself included) are asking for, teach us a "proven" system(s) with low risk and good returns as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, the main messages from Big Mike and experienced traders:
We have to find our own ways and that takes time, effort, lots of relearning and unlearning, developing habits and insights into our own psychology and market psychology.

How about this--if you want to subscribe to a signal service, do it, just don't talk about it here if you don't want to incur the wrath of the many people who have told you, when you asked them for their advice, that it is a bad idea and waste of money.

It's quite difficult to help right now, because you are all over the place about as much as you can be. You're talking about reading books on PA, learning market profile, subscribing to signal services, and now mechanical trading. You seem to not really want to listen to anyone, just to ask, and when you get an answer that you don't want to hear, you ignore it. That's how it seems anyway. Maybe I'm wrong.

How about this, since you asked me personally in post #1, and since I'm incredibly nice. You trade ES, yes? Post your trade statistics for the last 5 trading days you traded, along with a 5-minute chart for each day, showing entries and exits. If you want help, and you do this, I will help, based on my own trades I took during the same days (if I traded that day). If you do not, I will conclude that you don't want guidance and direction (your words in the thread title). This is all entertaining theater but let's get down to business. I am going to bed in 2 hours (11pm ET). The offer stands until then but not after.

Thank you for your offer Josh, however I have not actually made any trades in the past five days (due to technical issues), but have mostly been backtesting a new system. If I did have trades I made in the past five days, I guarantee I would of taken you up.

Once I get a demo platform, and you are still willing to help, then I will definitely post them.

Have a great night.

In my post I said "the last 5 trading days you traded" ... not the last 5 days.

The candles are delayed by a few mins (crap feed provider) so the entry on the chart migt not accurately reflect it, green arrow point up is the entry,.............green arrow pointing down is the exit

Here are the 5 last days I traded. I have posted all trade entry exit times for each chart .......they are not in consecutive order per say but i am sure you can figure out the trades based on the trade statistics.

Remember my feed is delayed, so the candle times are delayed (a pain i've learned to get accustomed to), but go by the trade stats.

I place an upwards pointing green arrow where I entered and a downwards pointing one where I exited.

I trail stop and try to get out trades as quick as I can.

Not sure how useful this is noting your trading style and mine might not be similiar.

Take your time in getting back, no rush.


Thank You so much Josh. I appreciate this.
