Is this guy selling something? I am a bit bemused by the interest that he is creating or is that it he is able to drive suspecting traders to his site. Ah curiosity one the tools used by skilled persuaders and marketeers, so it does work!

that real risk in a live market is not the same as a video game? Are you serious?

He appears to be trading live today. Why would he SIM trade with those results? He seems to be a really good trader. Makes no sense not to make real money, even with reduced contract size.

Guys my point is if this dude wants to show off his trading, use a live account and not a demo. It is no fun to watch a SIM account.

Ha just found this thread.

Lak is a real trader that has been trading for 8 years or so and worked his way up to what you see today.

I've been talking with him for nearly 3 years now and learning by watching him livestream his trades.

He's the real deal and so many choose not to believe it because they doubt they're own ability in trading.

They see some guy making hundreds of thousands in a day and choose ignorance and say "oh it cant be real for _______ reason" all the while wishing it wasn't real because they feel they will never match up to his performance.

Lak himself says anyone can learn to trade, its a skill, not an innate ability. It took him years to get to where he is, years of constant work and study and really figuring out how markets move.

Frankly, I'm ashamed of the members of futures.io (formerly BMT) in this thread that said Lak is fake.

@Big Mike had it right: "Does it help you be a better trade? Yes/No. If yes, learn from it. If no, move on."

Obviously it's a skill rather than an innate ability, but it doesn't follow from this that it's a skill "anyone can learn". Not everyone is capable of the necessary patience and discipline, for a start, and there are some other essential qualities, too.

I have no opinion of whether or not he's fake, but the statement you quote above certainly doesn't endear him to me on the credibility front.

I would start with his YouTube videos. Search "tradeitdontdateit" and you'll find his channel. Start with the old videos and work your way up, tons to be learned just by watching.

He also livestreams his trading at livestream.com/tradeitdontdateit, but he recently cut back on that a good bit.

He doesn't teach, he just trades.

I find the videos and live streaming to be more inspirational than anything else.

100% agree with you.

Responding to an old post but he would have to trade SIM with those results if he didn't have the margin required to trade it live. You can't trade 100+ lots on a small account.

Something does not add up. If we have people on this forum stating that they recorded Order Flow against his trades and when Lak claimed to trade x contracts they did not show on the recorded Tape/Order Flow on the other side, wouldn't that be suspicious?
