Interesting. More of a psyche question and wondering on my own thinking.

I am glad you found your perfect system. Just reading through some 'systems' that are able to be purchased and I have gone through a few over the last few years and I try to understand more about people and their objectives.


The World According to TMFT

If you can buy a system, don't...

Be wary of a man who says ... I own a Goose that lays Golden eggs and I rent her to you for $50.00 per month.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

So the key word is 'IF...' Trying to code that for you

No, the word is the flame. What you seek is the light.

The trading cosmos is an evolutionary cosmos. So let us have a look at similar environments:


(1) Which is the perfect animal?

(2) Which is the perfect plant?

(3) Who is the perfect girl?


Answers:

(1) Bulls or bears are an obvious choice. Bull is delicious, bear is something that I have never tasted.

(2)

(3) Would you use the criteria of Keynes, or would you stand up for your own beliefs?

First it's hard to share something that doesn't exist, and the perfect system doesn't exist.

Second, if you share your perfect system to ten other people, the likelihood they would really use it is slim. They wouldn't have the same belief system about it, you have.

Pete

Im with Pete on this one the perfect system doesn't exist and will never exist. You just have to find something that will work for you but in no way will it be perfect. You can work at it and adjust to make better but in reality it will always be a working progress. It's still a good question like the question they ask the Mrs. Universe pagent girls every year what would you do to bring peace on earth...lol

A more appripo questino would be "if you could build a successful system...."

The answer is obvious, which is why systems for sale are probably scams.

Any "system" which is consistent and repeatable is more valuable being utilized that it ever could be as a sold product.

Even a system that could net 1% a day would be 10x more valuable to the person who crafted it, than it ever could be sold to starstruck investors looking to make millions.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

The system I use is perfect... for me.

Whether or not it is perfect for someone else is superfluous.

Answers:

1. Bulls get fat , Bears get fat, Pigs get slaughtered. Fat animals are best.

2. Money Tree.

3. One that isn't fat and owns a money tree.
