Just a clarification Mr NLP! I'm not quoting "Dougles" or Jesse. I'm just quoting my own EGO!

Cunparis,

Do you hear yourself?

I GAVE YOU AN EXAMPLE WITH AN INDICATOR THAT I PROVIDED!

This is why I started deleting my posts. I'm wasting my time and yours. You will continue to lose because you are a <what do you think most people would say>.

Enjoy being right. Ah the French.


I think Cunparis will really like this

What is "the now"? Is it 1 minute, 1 tick, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 nanosecond, 1 week?

I would like to clarify what I said, which I think should be compatible with my original post.

When I said I haven't found a price-based indicator that has a positive expectancy, I didn't mean that one can't have a positive expectancy using an indicator. What I meant is that I haven't seen one which gives entry & exit signals which when followed mechanically, will result in positive expectancy.

If it's not followed mechanically then the trader is adding his own skills to the indicator, which is my theory. It takes more than an indicator to be profitable.

For the other posts, trade2win assumes too much which only shows his ignorance and his desire to talk confidently about things which he knows nothing about. That and him deleting previous posts because "he said too much" I do not find in the spirit of these forums. This is why he's now on my ignore list. I have limited time for the forums, so I prefer it to be productive.

Having lived here for almost 10 years has made me some kind of mix between American & French. It's been an amazing experience and I"ll never be the same..

The now, it's only the now. How would you measure one minute, or one week? Wouldn't that take you away from the now, and project you into the future, or the past if you wish?

In order to measure 1 minute, or any other time unit, you'll be needing two reference points. A start and an ending. If we start measuring 1 minute from this (now)point. Then, aren't we going to have any now moment after 30 second?

In this aspect, what's hard to understand is that, we constantly have the need for reference points. We don't even buy the concept that the now, would never be half of the reference points in case you're measuring 30 seconds between your start point and end point for 1 minute. And that's because the now lacks reference points.
