What would really be great MetalTrader is if we could get some understanding of the tools you use, how you set up your charts and what constitutes a trade setup. Guess that's asking an awful lot but....
Your trades may have had a positive expectancy, but claiming that they will 100% winners is a bit exaggerated. I think that a certain modesty is one of the prerequisites for success as a trader. Those who are 100% sure of what they are doing, will blow their accounts sooner than later, as they are not prepared for the loss that will inevitably show up.
There are no 100% trades. Success depends on your edge, discipline and money management.
But I'm close to 8 or 9 positive out of 10 trades. If I'm really only taking the really conservatives ones, I'm very close to more than 9 winners on 10.
Loosing days is because I mess it up psychologically. But I'm very much improved on that part in the last months. I read Mark Douglas once a month.
I made that claim and demonstrated it is possible because I wanted to show that there is no need to pay $37.000 to see a trader make extremely good trades. Unfortunately a few on bigmike trading forum wants to make fun out of my hard work and achievements, I hope they stand up, be a man, and do the same as I did.

If you can produce 7 winners for 3 losers with a R-Multiple of 1 in a consistent way, that is all you need to double your account. The key is discipline and money management (position sizing).
I do not think that anybody here needs to stand up and be a man. That is a bit of macho behavior. Not everybody is exhibitionist and wants to share or call all of her or his trades. If I make money, why do I need to prove it to anybody? I am not selling anything, after all. My method will not work for you and your method will certainly not work for me, which does not discredit either of them.

Oh I agree but it wasn't you who insinuated that what I did was not at all special, unfortunatly I never saw that person produce any profitable live trades like I did. I don't mind comments or critical posts, but do the same, show it like I did and then talk again. I hope that is the least I can ask in my defense.
look, i created a profitable trading style, it was the hardest thing i did in life and it has costed me extremely lots of money and effort. I even proved it by performing the above for free here, I think laughing it away was improper and disrespectfull. Especially from somebody who never did the same like I did.
