1: SL already at +1
2: Only posting already winning positions.
3: Posting levels and after a bit of retracement: " I told ya"
4: Posting "it could shoot up from here... or down" and later quote that post and "I told ya"
5: A lot of "may", "could"...

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.
It shows that it's you who don't know what you are talking about

The two are so close that most cannot distinguish between them. But I can say most are doing the first kind, including you. The banks are doing the second kind. This is why banks own shiny tall buildings, and you don't.

I haven't got a shiny, tall building. But I do have a thick, veiny shaft.

Now you're interested, aren't you Joe?
