All those years? Dude I've been proifitable for about three years.

I spent seven making every mistake in the book.

What can I say? I'm a slow learner!

Re: Ideas for increasing trader performance

in regards to your rep comment.

it wasnt gold, his most famous move was after the battle of Waterloo hs riders set out before anyone elses and reached england with the news napoleon was defeated, he leaked that Britain had lost the war and as the markets crashed he quietly bought everything in site and when the news hit that britain actually won, well he became the richest man on earth (aparantly) we will never know the truth..

and your right these kind of edges dont exist anymore..but would have they existed to us mere mortals back then either? all we can do now is get as close to the inner circle as possible. I have contacts in ALL the pits and can really find out what the markets are up to, its all about who you know...

With all due respect, if I was making myself out to be something bigger than I am, you think I'd let you all know I'm trading that size?

Regardless of what I come across like, I'm tiny in the great scheme of things and happy to admit it.

I think some people on this site have a massive chip on their shoulder.

All I wanted to do on here was show people how I made a living trading.

Have I earnt the right to say "listen to me and try it like this?".

If you consider most people lose money and I make it, I'd say I have.

I'm not earning Ronaldos wages but I don't do too badly for someone in my situation!
