The philosophical approach that says" I lost 25000 but, never mind, it will take me a few months to get some more together, then I'll be back again"

That, to me, is the stuff that make brokers happy men and keep markets moving.

Split, it's obvious from some of the posts that several posters here and on the bad fill thread either don't trade or are very inexperienced or just don't completely understand how it works.

Peter, it is something more than that. It shows a complete lack of respect for the money that they are frittering away. I know that money has lost a tremendous amount of value over the decades that I have been here but, still, whether GBP/$US/ Euros, 25000 is a lot of money and represents, in many cases, much hard work.

Because they do not respect it, they throw it at the markets but the people taking that money do respect it. That is the difference between one side and the other.

From another thread about Forex.
I don't use a broker though.

I use esignal for my data feed. There are over 200 contributors to this feed. It is not one broker.

I'm also well aware of the differences between spot (tick volume) and futures volume.

This from a complete **** who has a strategy based upon spot forex volume. Like there is such an accurate reading.
