Chat rooms

Is there anyone in the Chat room Live tades now showin who find my behaviour apt to rudely challenge, interrupt, think the room is my own, tell you how to trade (even when there are experienced traders in the room) and in some cases do I abuse people outright,People in the room are saying they are simply fed up my egotistical attitude.I was not aware of this till T2W emailed me,with compliants.

All I ask, the people who was in the Chat room, is this correct. does the minority or majority,think this.Please let me now

I think T2W got it about right
But as an xpit trader, trading the S & P
you would have to be a bit like that to survive
good luck with your trading
pity, but there you are

cj12 started this thread Know I had time to think. I cant believe I have been kicked out of the chat room. Although. I would not go back in there if I was asked. The minority in the room got very easily upset. If you want to make money from this game of hard knocks. You cant afford to get upset.

I was not in the chat room for emotional or sentimental reasons, in not looking to upset anyone. I speak the truth, I was in the room to show you, and others out there, selling methods that don't work.

Trading is the ultimate psychological game-a game of terror, some might say. the market will do everything to try and intimidate you, but is finally comes down to you against yourself. How you deal with failure will make what kind of trader you are. Can you deal with adversity, can you take the heat. Im sure the ones that got me kicked out of the room, cant.

So am I right in thinking I have upset everyone in the room, Because the ones who was asking for my advice have not backed my claim up.

from what ive seen , you have been completely ok..... whats the issue ? or are you talking about one particular day ? ive only popped in twice couple of weeks back , or is it something to do with you being cj and sun ? one and the same. but sun123 was ok . Dunno mate. keep the faith anyway.

I found your commentary reflects a level of composed mindset required that may well be beneficial for others to emulate to trade in those timescales, very open, including very human comments like "what am I doing" and then correcting or continuing.

Cheers to you mate.

I only joined you on one day. I was interesting reading your thoughts as you traded and you maintained a good commentary even when the action was busy. For me though a lot of your credibility was lost when you made a few losing trades early on and then subsequently claimed that it was a 'test' to see if we'd spotted your deliberate mistake (of buying on a falling market)! I thought you were joking initially. Sorry to hear the experiment ended in tears though.

In the timescale I think many buy into the longer falling market to catch upmoves harder ,riskier? going against the grain so to speak but some do it, I dont see that as an issue for a scalper providing the method is still disciplined, ie stops entered and adhered to, 4 or 5 losses in a row? tough going but days like that may be encountered if you are not concerned or figure in the days longer trend... Im sure cj does hundreds of trades over the month and he will be open to public critique by posting, its a potential additional pressure as people will measure trade by trade and not perhaps after 300 . I still say well done to him,and others who also post live, many will not, dare not do it.........


And if all the fuss is about the above then ok its done, people are human, judge not least you be judged. Trading can get you all wrapped up some days and you cant see wood for the trees. Hence the need for stops and risk per trade allocation.

CJ youv'e done well,will do well mate ,thank you.

cj12 started this thread Thanks for you comments fxmarkets

The day was a monday. It was a test, to see if anyone could see what I was doing wrong, buying in a fast down market, lost about 30 points in doing so. Then I asked questions, what I did worng,and nobody could answer a simple questions. The answer was trading against the trend.simple.But peto, you did not notice the other 30 points a made on the next 2 trades. on monday,The so called test day

You also forgot to mention the next 3 days where I made another +159 Dow points. Live trades. .

There was 20 in the room anyone else think I was out of order what ever I done? I KNOW OF 2 NAMES IN THE ROOM who are not keen to have me in there for some reason?

further more a guy came in to the room claming of trading 100 lots on the s&p.Most of my trades was against what he was doing, on one trade, I went long to take the high out. and he kept telling me, this trade wont work, I told him we see. he kept saying I know 100% this wont work. I said ok no worries its not a coemption if it wont work I look for another one. Anyway the trade works out, and this other guy was holding on to his short, as the market was bulling up, I never herd of him again. I think I know who he His, but im not 100% sure, so i wont say his name. but one thing I know people dont like winners, practically in the UK,

I did notice the next couple of trades went well and do not doubt your abilities. Like I said, I did not join you in the room the following days (chat rooms not really my thing), glad you did so well. I was just suggesting that if you were to repeat the experiment elsewhere, then you would do well to pre-warn us that there might be some trades entered which would subsequently regarded as a 'test' and not your normal method.

You invited the criticism, or else I would not have posted.
