Hi Howard,

A lot of Elite Members only want to share inside of the non-public section of the forum. So they have the option to do so here, and since most active participants on the forum are Elite, I don't think it would diminish your chances of winning the contest to do so. But the choice is yours.

Mike

Forgive me for belaboring this. I have always found that to learn a subject well, one should teach it. The major benefit to me will be the feedback and questions I will get and my ability to answer them effectively. I want to locate where I can do some good for the readers and where I can add depth to my own understanding of my trading strategy. I'm simply too new here to appreciate the culture here (every forum has one) and where I can best accomplish my goals.

Thanks
Howard

The two forums are equal in my eyes.

Traders Hideout currently has 31,820 posts. This includes subforums.
The Elite Circle currently has 30,842 posts. This includes subforums.

The choice is yours, start your thread based on where you feel most comfortable. I want to also take the opportunity to say thanks to all the members who have posted contest in the Elite section to make it what it is today

Have a good weekend,
Mike

Quoting 
I cannot stop you from being negative.

I like to believe i am realistic, not negative.


Quoting 
It is full of people that just want someone to tell them what to do and how to do it, so they can sit back to counting the money.

I thought that is what any kind teacher should do, tell you what to do and how to do. If there are lot of people waiting for that means there are lot of potential students. I agree, some people have no desire to spend time and learn or work, just want to count the money. I would not say is most of them here though (at least not active members). This forum wouldn't be what it is if most people just wanted to count money doing nothing.


Quoting 
Why would you expect someone to take you under his wings, spend time and money, and expect no return? Sure, he want you to success, because he has invests time and money on you, but his goal is wanting you to make money for him. Simple as that.

I don't expect that. That was my point from the start. Some1 that has something valuable to share, that is willing to put time and efforts in teaching others, is not very likely to do that for free. Potentially winning an iPad is not a reason. That is more like a symbolic prize.


Quoting 
Replying to you post gave me a deja vu. You sound like my best friend, who is unemployed, sitting at home and not doing anything all day. He quit his government job 2 years ago without a backup plan, so that mean not bring any money home. Just waiting for lady lucky to come to him. I advice him stop sitting at home and start doing something. Go around the neighborhood and ask if anyone want to do lawn care or something. Maybe in a few short years, you can retire your wife with this service you started today.

His response? He said if it is so easy why does not everyone do it.

To him, it is better to sit at home instead of trying any alternative. Because if the alternative works, then everyone would be doing it and profit will just vaporize

Well.. there are a few similarities. I "sit at home" and I am "unemployed" too, if that means working for some1 else. But that's about all. I weight my options very well and i only act when i know i have a good RR, to say so.

I left my job 7 years ago (i was working in a bank as network administrator) when i was already making more money online then my salary. After being on my own for couple years I started an online business (along with 2 partners) that netted about $1.5M in 5 years (not a fortune, i know, but decent for me) and doing some other things on the side. I am at my desk 16h a day, every day, and when i am not working for my biz, i am trying to learn about trading.

You are right though about what you said about SIM trade and stuff. First time i thought about trading was 5 or more years ago, before my online biz. I could not afford though to buy access to datafeeds, buy software and so on. Generally, today is much easier from that point of view. For me in particular, is more complicated. I now have a family to support, a business to take care of, etc. Most of what i know and how i make money was self thought, but back then i had no worries. Now, if i can do something to avoid spending 7 more years to learn trading, i will.
