Arabian, you are going to have a field day, buddy.

The highlight for me is the spammer that consistently posts "make sure you login to my room" in between rants from the extremely irate people that purchased Chalmers system.

Also check out the CCJ that has been issued!

However, I don't think the fault is in the newbies for thinking "It's been bad for 2 months, better give it some more time..."

Just because results have been bad for 2 months does not mean they will continue to be.

In my opinion, it depends somewhat on the strategy that is being implemented and any vendor should be upfront from the start (especially if they are a signal service) of what to expect in terms of results.
Hi trader_dante.

To be fair Iíve never read through all the thread.
Only thing Iíve noticed that the vendor was there at the beginning - posting a bit, then when the system started failing somehow he became posting shy. Thatís all - the followers are still following and hoping though. Hopefully the system may start performing one day - best wishes to them.

Some of your threads are the only vendorís threads Iíve read through. My impression is that you are one of very few vendors who can trade as well. I understand you need to defend vendors in general, but I donít think itís a great favour to would be traders whose greed is exploited by different kind of vendors.

It would be great to have SOCRATES back but the people I really miss are Connie Brown and TheDegrees, they really brought the best out in me. Unfortunately they were banned and like SOCRATES, they never returned to this site under a new nickname. I suppose they all have real pride and the dignity, unlike some clueless lowlifes who simply can’t stay away and instead keep returning under a new nickname and sleaze their way back into T2W. You have to feel sorry for these deranged hypocrites.

Ah, not the one I was thinking of. What do you reckon of this:
http://www.trade2win.com/boards/trad...e-journal.html

Started in Aug 2010 by a vendor with only 75 posts to his name. It now has an incredible 371,968 views. Is someone running a bot to get the view count up?
Haven't bothered to read much of it. The last few posts seem to be newbies.

Make no claims. Show no records. Start a journal.

You're the pinnacle of veracity.

:-)
If it's not a lucky streak - what is it ? ?

You show these huge percentage returns but also tell us that good traders can still be poor. If you can make 1000%, you have no business being poor. You should be rolling in cash. People would be beating down your door asking you to manage their money.

Your pot was less than 1000 quid. Once you took out your stake - you had zero risk and you must have taken plenty of risk.

Is this unsustainable or do you just not have the mental fortitude to replicate this with larger sums? Serious question.

All we seem to have on T2W at the moment are a bunch of Holy Grail merchants and those 1000% returns are very grailish dotchathink?

Perhaps I'm just a sh1t trader with my 'tread carefully' approach. Maybe I should be going for 10% a day.
