There's nothing new under the sun!

lol

I remember years back posting on some other forum my 'great' system I read about in a book...I wanted to give back as a newbie (even though I didn't think I was a newbie)....I was so offended when I posted it and they move it to beginners forum....

what??? that strategy isn't beginning traders level? It was advanced....there was a moving avg. crossover and everything....

wow! at least now I realize how dumb I actually was!

It's funny when people think they know something that they really don't...but you do.

My silly story aside, curiosity killed the cat....not generosity

2 Corinthians 9:6-12 “Each one should give as you have decided in your heart. You should not be sad when you give, and you should not give because you feel forced to give.”

1 John 3:17-18 “...We should love people not only with words and talk, but by our actions and true caring.”

how much better would the world be if everyone was generous instead of greedy? If you've traded any money live you already know what being motivated by greed can do to you.


...on the 'secretive' side.....You don't know what you.....don't know

...but if you did know what you....shouldn't know....then you're in the know.....

Statistics can play a part as well....which is just info.....

But this does bring about an interesting question imo.....

Is knowing some 'secretive' knowledge a major part of a great trader's edge or just a crutch?


Good insight here. I don't really think anything in trading is that secretive it's practically posted in plain view on many forums. It just seems that most folks(traders) act more secretive and that leads to some sort of deception that there is some sort of black magic and new traders get caught up on that.

I just think new folks get super distracted on indicators which ones to use and become frustrated with how they're using them when they don't work. I guess it just takes awhile for folks to filter what's fact from what's not and understanding that anything can happen, but if you play the game by the rules you can win the game.

Haha that's a good story. Good meaning as well. I get what you're saying. Nice way of saying it without saying it lol. That's style.

Trading isn't as hard as you make it.....

Really.... Trading is far easier than you make it.

A good system is really pretty simple and robust across many markets. As a friend of mine who is a professional trader has said.... You should be able to write the rules on a 3x5 card.

But simple is "Too simple" as humans we tend to complicate everything in the goal of making it better........ Remember, the more complex the system the more opportunity to make mistakes and to experience system failure.

Regarding systems .... there are a ton of them out there and many of them are profitable even if you can't trade them.
It is difficult for a person to trade someone else system..... you have to make/find and alter a sound methodology to your personality to have any hope of succeeding.

Yeah, simplicity is the best feature of any trading strategy. Especially when the object of analysis is for the most part pattern built system.
