@Anagami stop with the childish name calling "Crooks". Debate, disagree, discuss -- all welcome -- but be professional.

Not at all. Just asking you to refrain from name calling. There is no need to stop posting, so long as you keep it civil

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I really don't see what the debate here is all about. Al is simply trying to generate some form of "stable" income (through books and courses) in a business that we clearly (hopefully) know is anything but.

The debate is whether or not the person offering the product is being honest or not.

Nothing wrong with selling education (I do it myself), but lying about your profitably to sell product is illegal, immoral and unethical. I'm not implying anything about this Al guy, but that is what people are questioning - is he misrepresenting his own trading to sell stuff?

The fact is most trading vendors claim to be wildly profitable in their own trading accounts, when in many (most?) cases that is an outright lie.

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

@Big Mike, I think it would be a good idea if you were to give any vendor producing a webinar the option of providing you with sight of their last 6 months brokerage statements. This would be purely optional but you could give the thumbs up if you believe them to show profitability.

I certainly would not be interested in wasting my time watching anything that didn't come with a thumbs up from you.

Not a bad idea IF the vendor is claiming to be a profitable trader/making a living from trading. And ask them if they are making that claim.

I agree wit Mike that a trader doesn't have to necessarily be a profitable trader to learn from them. But, if they are making the claim of profitability, then they should produce the proof

It does amaze me that a person could believe they are qualified to teach/mentor other traders when the very methods they are teaching are totally unsuccessful.

Care to elaborate on this definitive conclusion? The thread is basing their opinion on Al on the fact that he has not provided brokerage statements, yet you make the accusation his methods are "totally unsuccessful" without providing any evidence. Ironic.

I must have posted this in the wrong thread, it was supposed to be a generic statement. I have no idea if Al is successful or not. He is certainly not telling

That's because he's not successful.
