I'm curious what kind of profit target you use and what kind of losses you have.
If you post some I can go over them. I trade on a 5m chart so I'd take a look at them on my chart and see if I can learn something.

1) Price makes bottom - red candle
2) Price reverses off bottom - blue candle - note the high of this candle
3) Price breaks high of candle in #2 - that is the RAT ENTRY
Take whatever profit you can get.
An alternative trade is to see price enter the 40 price zone and stop - red candle. Price then reverses, blue candle, and leaves the 40 zone, enter at 50 zone. Price will either leave the 50 zone higher or lower. You are either stopped out with a 10 pip loss or have the possibility of huge gains.
Trading is simple. Do not make it complicated or else the rat, monkey and parrot will beat you.

Personally, I couldn't care less about the color/font size etc.
It is NOT about the FORM, it is about the CONTENTS.
I will consider the CONTENTS of TRO's posts whatever the font size and/or "color of the day" is, unless the expected gain vs. the required effort to realize that gain is too low to my liking, in which case it is ME who has made a decision to that effect.
One CANNOT blame TRO for sharing his FREE ideas the way HE likes.
One CANNOT blame TRO for the decisions that one makes, only ONESELF is to blame.
One should be HAPPY and APPRECIATIVE that there is an OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN.

Hey guys I have to update this thread. TRO has made some great posts here and has challenged the way most of us think about trading. However at the same time he has been causing quite a ruckus here in the forums and in the chat. The moderators have received lots of complaints. We talked to TRO and asked him to adapt his style of posting and participating to the style of the forums. He refused to do that and his posting in unreadable tiny fonts & colors is just one example of him provoking everyone. In the end we decided his personality and mannerisms were not compatible with those of this site and the majority of our members.
I deeply regret this because I really like TRO and his thought-provoking posts. However, we cannot let one individual come in and wreck havoc here. Especially when it is intentional.
I asked him to post a link to his forums and continue this thread over there but he preferred to keep up the provocation. Eventually the moderators decided unanimously to ban TRO.
TRO is moderator / administrator of the forums at Kreslik.com and he has his own uncensored forum. I suggest that anyone wanting to pursue TRO's methods should do so on his forum. I'm going to go have a look myself so maybe I will see you over there.

That is somewhat of a commentary in the times we live in I suppose. Emotional thinking trumps logical thinking. Those that can do and those that can not whine and cry letting their emotions take charge.

I think you are missing a lot of what CunParis and others are saying about TRO. The form thing was only one example of what many thought was TRO provoking people / causing what I would consider, unnecessary drama. If you re-read his post, there were many other things which took place, many other complaints, etc, prior to him being banned. It would seem in your most recent posts, you are trying to make it out to be that because of his choice of fonts/colors he was banned. This is not accurate.
It is unfortunate that he was banned, but in my opinion, his 'fate' here at futures.io (formerly BMT) lied in his own hands the entire time.
But, life moves on, and like you have posted, he has his own forum for others who feel they can benefit from his experience and his method of educating people.
