This looks like it'd be the easiest thing to fake mentioned so far... ?? It's not even a real statement.

huh. this is as real as it gets. got it from here:

https://futures.io/trading-journals/4183-three-set-ups-57.html

and yes I would trust the poster. and please explain how you would fake that kind of a statement.

For NT, we can have something very safe, if the destination (website) is not managed by the sender: the strategy send the orders, all is logged, and the sender is not able to modify the logs.
Easy...

Currently no such web site exists, correct? I just did a search on google and didn't come up with anything though it was not the most exhaustive search I've done.

PhotoShop, Gimp, ..., very easy to fake (but I'm not writing that this one is a fake ).

something like this should be prove enough.

dood, I think you left out +200 from your P&L... this took me about 1 minute with MS paint, with enough time I could have made it the exact same and event remove the "blackouts" and show some $$$...

I've made one, but only for my own use, few years ago.
Their is few sites like this for MT4 I think, to check bots performances, but it's MT4...

it's not my p&l, but you could have changed it to something like + 33,157

anyway, I give up. guess if you want to cheat, you'll find a way.

"Probably" being the key word. I'm not looking for probabilities, I'm looking for evidence... the best traders, I realize, will not sell their methods, and likely don't even have "methods" to sell, as it's likely based in time-tested experience. So I'm not really looking at this from the standpoint of a consumer looking to buy, just from an observer looking to verify.

I will tell you what a veteran options trader told me, that he can show you his corp tax returns or even his P&L doesnt mean that I will ever trade the way he does or even achieve the same succes as he has... so you can verify someone's P&L, but that doesnt mean you will make it your own if you know what I mean.

I'm just shocked that you think an image with a number on it means anything... at least a brokerage statement would look legitimate. That posted screen shot could be produced by most 4th graders these days.

By the way, I'm not saying this one is fake, of course. Just saying that it proves nothing. Which seems to be the consensus so far, that it really can't be proven.

I know, but I had to be conservative to bait the newbies and the skeptical ones..

IMO, the only thing that cant be cheated is a 4506... regardless of what you trade.. if equities/options, all trades will be reflected, and if futures/commodities then the 1099 will show gain/loss... so as per documentation, 4506.. but that wont tell the whole story anyhow as the trade could have written off quite a lot in the process of managing his/her tax liability...

it is either that, or reputation from a verifiable background (and a real background check) ...
