There is an element of luck in every field, but consistent trading for considerable time is unlikely be the result of a chance.

To summarise, my Dad's favourite quote when he beat me at snooker was taken from one of his favourite golfers. It was a simple one. "The more I practise the luckier I get."

Hey Guyz , My Name Is Dejan and im from Netherlands

Im reading this forum a lot and it helped me alot,

I started trading 6 Years ago and Last year i was profitable and this year as of now im in green.I only trade es,and i take 1 or 2 trades a day.

I was wondering and rly want an honest and reasonable anwser.

For guyz who trade ES , what is reasonable Net points a month or year.

What ammout would u say is good to get (more for myself that my method is on good way) i never asked this and i dont know many who are open about it

Looking at youtube and seeing some ppl getting numbers in and most i do not trust.

Best Dejan

Hello Everyone,

I just want to say this.

I am the best scalping day trader alive and make alot of money. If anyone wants to learn hit me up.

Please do not ask me for proof of making money because I do not have any proof. However, it felt really good saying that to see how it feels making such lying statements on forum.

Seriously, if I was making money scalping about 50 ES contract a day. I would not waste time typing this message. And damn sure would not waste time teaching other traders.

Thank you,

No, I am the best scalping trader alive. I am loosing money so far, but some day I will be reach

I'm going to spend the next week or so figuring out whether or not making consistent, sizeable gains and scaling up is even possible in ES. If not, I'll look into investment banking. If not, finding funding in other ways. In no way, shape, or form am I going to turn into the typical retail trader, which is nothing more than a statistic.

It's either millions or bust. I'll figure it out, one way or another. I think I'm just done with the internet and all the fanboys that are on it. It's time to get real.

Just checking in. A month has gone by @xsamanthax How did your investigating go?

Side note:

Hi Mitch,

Politics, particularly the politics of covid, are seriously out of bounds here. We've had more than enough of the back and forth on covid for a long time. We are done with it, and past done.

This is a trading forum. Obviously, everyone has political ideas, and they may not be popular with someone else. That is fine. There is a place for them, just not here.

This is a politics-free zone, as much as we can make it. Let's have your trading ideas, and the ups and downs of trading or anything else you care to share, if it is about trading. Your politics are your business, and you have every right to them. But let's keep it off of this forum.

I have had to delete your post. Any non-political post will be fine, but anything political is not.

I think that such an option is quite possible for those who have not studied enough, but hope to make a profit "here and now". In trading, it just doesn't work.
