What is your edge? is it Unique?

I have one no one else has, except the big banks. please share if you have an extra special Edge. to tell a bit about myself I am self-taught because this is a loser market and I am a winner, I listen to no man, and it has served me well, to those that say the great traders only use naked charts I say Horse Shit! I have crap all over my charts and it Works. yes, you have to become better than an aircraft controller to use them, but when money is involved you become a quick learner. me I have a deep secret I will not share with no person because no person ever gave me what I've found, I am the type that has kicked stones over for 20 years now, and finally found the secret good luck out there.

Okay big cock; okay. Try not to let your balls knock over small children when you stroll down the street everyday.

You are too funny brother!

All joking aside, this attitude is the worst to have for any trader, and will no doubt lead to enormous losses. Avoid thinking like this gentlemen, it is most certainly the wrong path in trading.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Agree with Mike, but ...

I do wonder what is the purpose of this post? What message are you trying to send, Mr. Gilmo? What conclusions should we draw? I don't really care how you trade, but I do wonder about the psychology behind such a post. Just so curious.

Michael

This sounds very familiar. He has a secret that no one else have. Is he a reincarnation of the Oil trading academy guy?

Everyone here knows youre talking out your arse.

I know something you dont. The secret is......there is no secret. You will not understand this. Until one day you do. Thats the day you have nothing more to prove to anyone.

There are some unique amazing edges out there, but they can be amazingly difficult to find, and in my limited experience as soon as somebody else finds it, it's gone for both of you. I'm not talking about Holy Grail Indicators or crap like that either. If the edge is that amazing why haven't you turned it into Billions I hear you all jeer? In my case the best edges I have ever found have always been non-scalable so they become like dividend streams rather than career changers.
