Man, what a fantastic contribution to the thread! If you want to accuse him of cheating, just say so. Otherwise you could have noticed the same misalignment in posts #100 and #125....

Probably just a screen display problem....

Almost as fantastic a contribution as this one! Don't put words in other people's mouths.

@xelaar , keep up the stellar trading!


Edit: I checked one of my reports that shows the same alignment issue

In some of my previously posted trade report screenshots, if you look closely you can see some degree of misalignment in the gray columns...

So you are agreeing with me, thanks.... But please translate it for me, what was the point of Indextrader's post?

I can't be sure, but he has plenty of helpful posts, and usually has a positive demeanor. As far as I'm concerned he was just pointing out an irregularity, not accusing xelaar of doctoring his combine reports.

Wow, now it became interesting. I have seen Index's post and also couldn't decide what is it about. I can see rather two versions: either it is a "friendly" suggestion that I have to work on my photoshop skills after I allowed myself one or two not even critical but rather simply not strictly praising posts in his journal and this is a sort of payback; or he suggests that I work as web designer for TST and my work sucks.

I can't really see any point why would anyone doctor results for publishing at futures.io (formerly BMT), especially with these much less than stellar results lately, but in case anyone wonders he can check out profile at TST page the full report is not available but the trade record is consistent with the report published. Of course someone could say I did hack TST website (or the whole Internet) just to look somewhat cool at BTM, but that would too much of achievement for me.

In any case, the only thing I can be really proud of is my development as disciplined and methodical trader, that was always a struggle for me and Combine helped me immensely. The results aren't so stellar though, I have started with a very specific system, that was giving plenty of ticks at the moment I put my trading plan together, but now it works less and less every day. I will continue the course and review things over the weekend. I will be testing a narrow-range entry time in the meantime so I can switch from my momentum entries to range-based reversals when market is in dolldrums like yesterday. I hope that Jigsaw tools I am working with at the moment will be a major help for me.

Firstly I don't remotely think @indextrader7 intended to accuse anyone.

Secondly I appreciate @xelaar for openly sharing his combine attempt with the community - it not only takes courage, guts etc. but shows that you have faith in yourself, trust in the world at large.

And no, documenting a combine journey isn't "showing off" - a combine journal is all about the sweat, hard work, decisions taken on the spur of the moment - given the possibilities of what all can go wrong, building a solid track record is no mean achievement.

So folks, wave your white flags - and also wave a chequered flag for @xelaar so that he completes his combine with good cheer - I wholeheartedly support his development having gone through the labor pains myself

Leaning out the window


Hi @xelaar

Thanks for your interesting thread - YES! Kudos that you are sharing your results in this thread.
Posting on futures.io (formerly BMT) means self exposing a lot.
Posting statements here means exposing even more
There are always members not believing anything that is posted...
With more than 40k futures.io (formerly BMT) members that risk is that some +2k are NO-believers.
If you are calling trades live here (entries and exits) - even THEN the risk is to have
some repliers that do not believe - this is life!

Don't hesit - post more!
Good trades
