I apologize if I've given you the impression that vendors are not welcome here. That is not the case. We embrace 'good' vendors with open arms and, indeed, I've defended a number of them over the years. Whether you're a 'good' vendor that benefits the site and its members or are a 'bad' vendor is down to you. Your posts and how you interact with our members will, ultimately, reveal which side of the divide you are on. Sadly, your responses to me are not encouraging. That said, my job demands that I keep an open mind and think the best of people until proven otherwise.

As for 'amateurs leading the ship' - that rather depends upon where the 'ship' is heading and how it gets there. T2W has been going for a long time and thousands of members have benefited from it - and continue to do so - in line with the objectives that I linked to in my last post. Perhaps I/we are amateurs, but many would say that no one does it better than us.

One last point: there's no issue with screen shots. Plenty of vendors post screen shots with watermarks without any problem at all. As I'm sure you realize, it's all about intent. Either you're here to help our members or you hope to profit from them. The former is great and the latter isn't. It's that simple.

No one - least of all me - is making any childish accusations. I've done my best to welcome you, compliment you on your posts thus far and to provide you with a helpful 'heads up' about the way the forum works to ensure that you stay on the right side of our Mod' team. That you've taken umbrage at my sincere efforts says more about you and your motives for being here than it does about me. Either way, our members will draw their own conclusions which I suspect will reflect those already expressed by Brumby.

To end on a high note, your can easily demonstrate that you're a 'good' vendor by following the advice I've offered thus far. We are very experienced at dealing with vendors and the membership (not me) will quickly determine whether or not you are here to serve their best interests or your own. The choice is entirely down to you.
Tim.

Hey NVendetti

Welcome to trade2win.......I’ve been on this site for a few years now and have mentored and trained hundreds of traders over the years so am classified as a vendor by the trade2win gang

I have found the guys very fair and objective in dealing with me over the years ....they have to manage the situation of commercial traders here as they do have a duty to protect the community from vendors who are looking to make a quick buck promoting their products and services ....of which there have been many !

If you present genuinely good quality material and advice here over a long period of time you will be welcome and accepted into the community .....if not then I suggest you go elsewhere to the myriad of other forums catering for vendors ...

I find trade2win a much more friendly environment for vendor/traders than other forums .....and so do many of the traders I have worked with .....

Anyway welcome again
Neil

Hi everyone!

I'm new to trading so I would really appreciate if you could give me some advise! I have a busy life with a 9 to 5 job but I'd like to learn how to trade. Is it possible to make profits without trading every day? What if I can only trade on the weekends?

I trade around a job every day without much problem. I do all my trading on my mobile with some news feeds running in a browser on my work pc. It can be done

How much time do you spend with trading on a day?

If you can trade 1-2 times in your workplace, then its better to do. But if you are more focused n your trading then be a full time trader. Better For You!

A lot of research outside of work but very little at work as I trade off the economic calendar as my schedule. So if there are opportunities I alert myself 5 mins before to catch up on sentiment and then if the data offers a trade I am in else I just carry on working. You can only do this trading fundamentals. If you traded using only technicals then your only options are automation or sitting in front of charts all day.

Most major market are closed on the weekend. Yes, it is possible to make profits without trading every day. Despite what some inexperienced newbie says, you don't need to sit in front of your computer all day to trade technicals. You can study and trade technicals successfully on a higher timeframe, like daily and weekly.

Sure you can do that but how many trades are you able to take in any given month. If someone is trying to learn trading they aren't going to find much success and lose patience if they only placing a couple of trades a month. Be realistic here, sure you could do this if you know what you are doing but would you honestly spend years learning to trade like this?

as fxx says it’s all about volume of trades .......both from proof of concept in your system and profitability

the more trades you make the more you can prove your systems ...and if profitable the more you trade the more money you make ....and the more you trade the more sample size allows your profits to be guaranteed

a casino with a 3% edge cannot guarantee profits to its owners unless it is hitting certain levels of volume per annum.....similarly a trader with a good system cannot guarantee annual profits unless they make a minimum number of trades ...assuming all are taken following the system of course

low sample size means skewed results .....you need large sample sizes to get to expected result

The advice you're getting isn't entirely accurate. It isn't the quantity of your trades that will make you money but the quality of those trades. To begin with, the ordinary retail trader wasn't in a position to trade intraday until about twenty years ago, so the proposition that one must sit in front of one's computer all day staring at charts in order to make money is an opinion, not a fact. Traders focused on daily and weekly charts were making money -- if they were competent -- long before 1997. As for number of trades, there are, of course, 500 stocks in the S&P500 and over 3000 on the Nasdaq. There are several ways to develop a universe of stocks and criteria to employ to narrow that universe down to a reasonable number of trading opportunities which occur frequently enough to not only develop a sound trading plan but to employ it profitably.

Trade what you know. If you know currencies, crypto or otherwise, trade them. If you don't, look elsewhere. Same goes for options or commodities or indices or ETFs. Just trading a lot isn't going to get you very far. If it did, the success rate would be far higher than it is. And has been. Learn how to put together a robust trading plan. Otherwise you're wasting your time and your money.

Hi everyone I've been reading and watching for a while. I want to take some positive steps now to find out whether trading is right for me. I've been offered some free training (which seems to be good quality) on condition that I use City Index as my broker. But I've seen conflicting reviews of them - some indicating that money was withheld https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.cityindex.co.uk. Has anyone used them CityIndex at all please?
