This is probably a stupid question, but are there two journal areas? If so, why? And when I'm ready to journal, which one do I use?

I was thinking the very same thing. I have no idea why there are two journal areas, but I'll post mine in the no charge to view section. I'm not a big lover of the caste system.

One area is for Elite members only, and many Elite members prefer to only post in this area. The other area is open for all.

Hey Mike,
Normally there was an "answered" button...but I don't see it so I'll just click the "thanks" button.

Hi Julie,

I must say, when I say your picture for some reason all of my indicators and price action on my chart went BULLISH!...j/k

Anyways let me respond to you so you'll get a better understanding from someone that's in the inside ELITE Circle...

I was thinking the very same thing. I have no idea why there are two journal areas, but I'll post mine in the no charge to view section.

Well, what I've found from what I've read so far from both sides is that the Elite Journals are more committed, by that I mean, they're more dedicated in making this forum work in a positive and "supportive" way....supportive not just in the Elite Circle but in the General forum as well.

I find the General Journals are "generally" traders like me, NEWBY, "not really sure, but I'll give it a try and see what happens"...and there's nothing wrong with that...

After joining as an elite, I really do see a benefit in joining....but that's my 2 cents...I'm not getting any $$$ for this opinion.

I'm not a big lover of the caste system.

Me too, I'm don't believe in a caste system. Although I must say some of my Indian friends admit that they still practice it in secret. Unfortunately, there will always be people like that...looking down at people, thinking they are superior than others.

But you have to realize that applying the "caste system" analogy to this forum is a poor analogy. The analysis is, this is America, this is a free country, not 100% capitalist but none the less, a capitalist free country. In other words, everyone here has the "Opportunity to Succeed" NOT the Guarantee, but the Opportunity to succeed.

So if you're in the General Forum, no one is going to say, "that's all you'll ever be...nothing but a general forum participant." and you'll never ever be other than that...that's a caste system.

But if you want to change your status from General to ELITE, then all you have to do is FREELY DECIDE to do so...that's a free capitalist system.

Just my 2 cents.

You should start a new thread, this one doesn't have a descriptive topic title for a journal.

Mike

The point I tried to make by journalling in the elite section is that its only fair to support a site thats unique and provides a calm diciplined atmosphere in which we can share without the flamefest other forums allow . Try asking anything over at ET and I guarantee youll be held over the coals .

Btw Mike , maybe since its called "elite" its a little off putting like"caste" system . Maybe call it "section for those that appreciate a spot to leave and share ideas and show their appreciation by contributing a few dollars to offset the costs of running such a place since we know its not free to host and maintain" or something like that .

It's called The Elite Circle because that name has special meaning to me from about 20 years ago. Shortening that to Elite Member was a natural extension. Most are very thankful for the system in place, but some like to complain about it. To the complainers: just go away, why be here if you don't like it.

This thread is sufficiently off topic now, and the original question asked and answered, so I am closing it.
