Oh Pete, you start off with 1EA, then you build another, then another. Before you know it, you've got 44 of them. I've seen it before and we all know it ends in a permanent ban. Be prepared for nautical questions from me should you buy a superyacht in the process.

I have my eye on several yachts

hmm 44 ea's and a ban....sounds familiar...wait don't tell me, I'll get it...

Just so I don't get a ban, I'll make sure at least 1 of the 44 ea's is not profitable so I appear genuine!

According to a reliable source, it costs about $1m demo dollars to develop 44 EA's. I hope you can afford it Pete, it's an expensive game to get into.

I've learnt that you have to be able to hold your tongue and that's what I'm going to work on. Because proving your point has a price and sometimes it's not worth paying.

To program up all those small edge strategies, and actually trade for more than an hour a day.
