Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Ahem, they are forgetting a little thing called plate tectonics. Mecca may happen to be where it is right now, but it wasn't always so and it won't always be. For example, New York state and England were once connected as part of the same land mass. Not so much anymore.

There is a lot more to the Golden Ratio than this.

However, just as with traders using the Fibs, too much is made of it as if it is the Holy Grail.
The Golden Ratio/Fibs are just the way nature was designed by an intelligent creator.
All things follow this mater plan of creation.

Trying to say that Islam has a corner on the Golden Ratio is almost funny.
That 1.618 distance from the North Pole just happens to go completely around the earth (not just through Mecca).
Also, who says that the starting point is the North Pole?
What if it were the South Pole?
Or the Equator or multiple points on the globe.
An alternate theory is that the Golden Ratio of the earth is Rio de Janeiro

Also the earth has a tilt or approx 23.5 degrees...
So maybe the center of that axis and not the North Pole should be the starting point???
And who determines which axis is the starting point?

Just as with trading, Fibs and Golden Ratios are significant but finding the correct starting point has always been a challenge.

Rejoice in the Thunderstorms of Life . . .
Knowing it's not about Clouds or Wind. . .
But Learning to Dance in the Rain ! ! !
