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) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I don't usually partake in these discussions about someone's motives for posting profits/trades/videos. However, some of us have been on this futuresio for a while and have seen it all.
I think some people are being unreasonable by dismissing some other members' inquiry into Sharmas' motives. I remember one journal in particular that was a very good journal by VinceVirgil. He was posting videos of his trades everyday and then one member started questioning Vince's motive. I watched that member being called a hater and all sorts of names when he asked about the journal. What ended up happening, VinceVirgil started directing BMT members to his twitter and youtube channels. Martha Chiriboga is another user that comes to mind that was posting "suspiciously" on her journal. People called her out and she ended up trying to sell her trading services when she had never traded live (I know this for sure that she had never traded live)
There are members on here that post their trades and have not seen any suggestion of them being vendors or trying to lure futuresio members to buy their system. Folks like @Inletcap have started very informative threads here on BMT and has never been asked if he is selling anything. WHY? Because he hasn't shown any signs of trying to lure folks to anything.
When you start having phrases like "secret sauce" and posting huge profits yet you won't say what you are doing, how can members not be "suspicious" It's the tone of your posts that makes some members ask that questions and I wish other members could stop with the attacks on someone who is just asking if you are a vendor or not. Again, no-one has asked @Inletcap if he's selling anything because "vendorish" key words are not in his posts. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to say my 2 cents because I've seen this before and I remember at that time thinking, "I wonder what will happen if VinceVirgil ends up being a vendor after convincing several readers of his thread that he wasn't going to be and everyone yelling at that one member who asked the questions."
I enjoy reading your posts and please keep up the good work. Only you know what your motives for these posts are. Hopefully it's just a journal for you and not marketing ploy for your vendor endeavors.
Anyone that sends me nasty PM is wasting their time because I am not going to engage.
