Hi @ all,

thanks Horst. Please don`t listen to anyone and keep up your great work. How long does it takes to be such a professional? I began to trade 6 years ago. I am profitable but not like you. That is amazing!!!

Well, Horst has an immense loyalty to those who gave him the profitable 'edge'. So, you will see some defending of NFT and all that. However, Horst is his own person from what I have discovered and a legitimately good trader.

If you look at both of our journals you will see that we take our trades off the same 'guidelines', but he is much better at waiting and seeing price action correctly.

To be honest, most people can't follow his trades even if he explained them as some of them I don't even get and I have been doing this system for 18 months. He knows when to hold em', knows when to fold em', knows when to walk away, and knows when to run.

This answers the next question as I believe he has been doing this for just over 4.5 years, ex-contractor and spent a couple years gleaning a massive amount of chart time to truly understand his limitations and overcome those. (He is a very big believer that you do not need to spend as much time learning the ropes as he did)

I have had a challenge overcoming my changing of the system and minimizing it and basically creating a break even system. Horst has been helping me to get back to see the 'big picture'. (not for money)

He is very loyal like I said, so expect some 'feedback', but besides that I think if you sit back and watch it you will glean information from the vids.

I did the same for several weeks, but because I wasn't profitable nobody cared. haha..

keep doing what u doing best


hey horst keep being profitable thats what matters in the end u will have the last laugh.....
you rite this is your journal, so whatever u do here entirely is your stuff, not others to decide whether u should share your system @ least i can see u are trading live & not even bothering hiding your account info, so it takes a man to not care about all this little stuff so dont be bothered i dont think u did, just keep rolling that profit dice..... Cheers
I just enjoy just watching someone making $$$$

Yes, in my opinion it doesn't matter as it is inspiring for someone to actually show profitable trading. I wish more successful traders did it and not just vendors. Maybe someday. I don't think they understand how inspiring it is to aspiring traders.

Didn't get a chance to trade today, as I had data issues. Just as well, I have a habit of taking a long weekends anyway and not trading on Fridays so this worked out quite well...

Thanks for all the support guys, I appreciate all the kind words and positive thoughts.

Jonny, I have been trading for about 9 years. I went through all the phases. Buying books, DVD's, joining chat rooms, trading rooms. This guru claims he's great for this, that guru claims he's great for that. You name it, I have probably tried it. Getting to the level of consistency required to earn a decent living takes lots of hard work and a path of disciplined education. I finally realized that instead of just handing over my money to the market, because I thought I knew how to trade, I would get a decent education. You can't compete with the professionals, without the proper tools. I went through 3 schools of trading and each one taught me a different logic. Some of which was totally useless. I have had 6 years of professional trading education, and my education has more than paid for itself. I am still a student for the simple fact that you can never learn enough. As long as there is someone better than you, there is something more to learn.

So in a nutshell, I floundered for about 3 years and wandered around aimlessly before getting serious and buckling down, and finally became profitable in year 7. So if you have been trading for 6.....you only have one more to go.....

Bluemele, you are absolutely correct, I am one loyal son of a gun. I will go to the mat for any of my friends or associates. I am not about to bite the only hand that has taught me how to feed myself.

Bugsbunny, I appreciate the fact, that you appreciate the fact, that someone is finally walking the talk and actually showing eager traders that..... HECK YEAH, it can be done, WATCH...........and if I can do it, you most assuredly can do it.

Horst

If you are scared to trade the market, then just say it.

I will try the TT datafeed and see if I get a difference to what the zenfire has been giving me. I need something to blame my trading on!

The only reason I chose Trading Technologies over Zenfire was the fact of the Zenfire data made my DOM very bouncy and jittery for some reason. I tried TT and it was a lot smoother and less hectic. Strange thing was that it was pc specific. I didnt experience the Zenfire bouncing on my laptop. Asking around I discovered that it was hit or miss. If you've seen Julia's videos she commented that her DOM seemed to be bouncing a lot, and she has TT, so go figure.

I have been watching your videos and have to say that your whole new approach is starting to pay off. I see a positive difference from say .....3 weeks ago. You are on a plateau, and need to break that flatline barrier of having as many plus days as you are minus days. One day very soon it will just click into place, and you will just have this ear to ear grin on your face.

Hang in there buddy, good things come to those that wait.
