Come to think of it I should have recommended to ESMA that they take a long hard look at increasing the regulation of golf. This would save many people from buying expensive gear and club memberships which they then don't use, and we all know that 90% of them fail to become professional golfers.

After golf, skiing.

At least trading offers the possibility for the individual to create their own wealth. This enables them to use the money for worthy purposes in the community if they wish, it certainly means they have more to spend which enriches the economy, and it might even mean they are less likely to be a burden on state support.

Sure but that possibility exist with a minority 10%.

Imagine a heathy population taking part in golf or skiing how much that could save in the long term for the government in health care cost. Sport is great for many other benefits, health, education, well being, etc.

So youve been there and done it your self. that good.

I am over the fact that i lost against the markets. I am neither angry or happy about it. Its just part of the learning curve, like everyone else here no?

Heavy losses is a relative term, I wish I had deep pockets.

So you now know that the markets and brokers arenít to blame

Not totally, I am still sticking to my post.

"The SB Provider is at fault to some extent, allowing a noobie to use high leverage"


To that end and i think this thread is now exhausted. Good luck and happy Trading All.

After skiing, noisy motor bikes.

What is the reason you are entering the trade and what is your trade plan?

If you are entering a trade based off charts alone then ask yourself this. Can everyone else see what I am seeing without requiring a special configuration of indicators and or price structure? My point is you need to align your expectations with the way you are trading. If you want to be in a position where the trades you enter have a better chance of success then you need to operate in a framework like the professional traders.
