@Amstaff Your use of syntax leads me the believe that American English is not your native language. And to the extent that is or is not the case, there may a language and possible cultural component that is playing a role in these exchanges.

Just a guess.

In fairness, I am responsible for the thread title. @Amstaff had made a post in an unrelated thread that was off-topic, and I moved it into its own thread (it was the first post of this thread), and made a title for the thread using a phrase he had used, that I thought would create some interest.

Well, it did .

Bob.

Right!! We are 4 pages into this topic and no one knows what it's about.

I'm still curious as to how a mentor helped @Amstaff.

The man made or abstract markets have no need other than the need generated by man. Wealth is exchanged.

I'm sorry if I came off rude. I value my time and can be very direct in what I type. I don't have time for wild claims or cute games.

Love it - it's also my way and it's sometimes not easy to live with that.

Really.
The original question was interesting but overall the thread hasn't really yielded anything particularly helpful, but even so what a forum user chooses to reveal about their trading is up to them. And why should the guy have been pushed in to the need to post his brokerage statement, nobody else here has had to demonstrate their profitability before being allowed to write what they like in posts.
Perhaps he has stopped replying because he is under no obligation to say more than he wants to, or to spend his time gaining the approval of anonymous people on the internet.

If this forum were ever to reach the point where an individual can call for a moderator to close another person's thread, and they did so for that reason, that would be the day I stopped posting here.

day trading is a very difficult thing to do.
and I think it depends a lot on your condition...
I trade only crypto for example and sometimes it's hard for me to take a day off because I see the setups and have to work.
so you get tired.

I agree with the brokerage statement but the OP was asked a few times what the mentor did to help, what his strategy was and he kept rambling on without answering any questions. And that is fine if he doesn't want to divulge that information, but at least tell us he doesn't want to instead of continuing to type paragraph after paragraph and saying nothing much! I'm always interested when someone mentions a mentor help makes them profitable.

@matthew28

You may decide yourself to post or NOT to post on fio.
Actually YOU made helpful inputs, @bobwest did as well and I thought to be helpful here. But the outcome of all after 5 pages of writings up to now is NULL.
When the OP is not willing to respond on questions - there is no sense to prolong a thread that can be found by its character more than a dozen times in elite and non elite.
Therefore my post above which was with a blinking eye... to a MOD that follows (thanks!) many new and old threads. He is free to decide - yes? And said it already.
