Everything fcta says on his for Christians only thread, for example,
"Otherwise you are missing out and ability for God to equip you His knowledge for overcoming the stock markets. It works for me, and this is what I am doing using the Bible to spot the next market crash."

Never mind the pazzies, malins, dashes, killphils of this board, the One and Only Secret Truth is that fcta is the God approved King of Lulz.

And he doesn't even know it.

"Trading isn't like gambling."



And "Investment".

People use the word "investment" or say things like it isn't gambling (when they have **** all idea of what gambling means) to make themselves sound clever, like just using the word "investment" reduces the risk to zero.

Check that gambling thread. Half the morons speak like they know what they are talking about. What they really mean is degenerate gambling... and nobody ever goes degen when they're trading, do they.

BRETTUS - "I trade about twice a week. Sorry if i have too much time on my hands to help Tony know that he won't be better off anywhere else. It's true that i'm an amateur though. Some amateurs get lucky though"

Big mouth for an amateur
