You talking about investing not trading. But you can apply it intraday successfully. I am not full time but my account is growing using this approach.

@FXX
Iíll check and come back to you shortly if not tomorrow as out on the p1ss and I take your post seriously enough to not respond in my current state.

Now for @new_trader

Have you not seen news change the markets in a heartbeat. What about NFP. Come on mate. Youíre taking the p1ss surely?

I don't think you are trading true fundamentals if you think it improves intra-day trading. Fundamentals are basic, they don't need to be scrutinized everyday. This isn't an opinion, this is a general principle. It would be like saying the UK economy is in recession this morning but it will end by the afternoon. Then checking your data the next day to see what state the UK economy is in so you can trade it.

I am THE most transparent person on here, many have met me in the flesh and some on T2W still remain close to me today. All of this is still available on the net for all to see.

I have no idea what I am supposed to do to satisfy the doubters and those who struggle to make money and do not think it is possible. Maybe that's what it is? Maybe they just don't believe its possible. If I have misunderstood then please tell me where it is you feel I 'should' do more to prove myself? (that's not a dig either mate - I have long standing respect for you).

Is it that some people genuinely do not believe that a person making money from the markets consistently - ie, a profitable trader, would want to be part of a good community of newbie traders?
I was there once you know.

And in return what do I ask for? ........... Nothing. (other than respect and maybe a thank you from time to time)

Those who want to believe will succeed, those who don't, won't.


PS: Thank you for the welcome back.

Regards,
Lee
I would not worry ,

If this is your perception of fundamentals intraday then you have a lot to learn. Your example is nonsensical which explains why you don't understand what's going on. A recession requires decreasing Gdp for more than 2 consecutive quarters.

Fundamentals are constantly being scrutinised. Why would large firms waste money on real-time news feeds if they only needed to look at it occasionally? Why does the market react when news is released based on a number that wasn't expected? Who do you think is moving the market?

Nothing to explain, large firms are wasting money. Why did we have a financial crisis in 2008 if large firms were so informed by their news about economic conditions?

The market fluctuates, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with fluctuations in fundamentals.

What are you smoking. The 2008 crisis had absolutely nothing to do with fundamentals. I am wasting my time talking to you.

Bundling below investment grade debt into an asset with an investment grade classification is where it all went wrong. They did this because their bonuses were tied to the amount of instruments like this being sold. The trigger was defaulting mortgages which spurred on banks to quietly sell the instruments on before the cr@p hit the fan. The ones that went down when it did were holding onto more worthless debt than their assets. You wouldn't have been able to predict this through fundamental analysis and even if you could have (hypothetically speaking of course), why would you sell yourself out!

Hi Kaeso,

Don't allow yourself to get confused between cause and effect.

@FXX is correct is stating that fundamentals did not cause the recession.

In simple terms, the recession was caused by 2 negative quarters, this in turn was caused by many different factors but was mostly posted and recognised by growth. Obviously there is a lot underneath this tip of the iceberg. There are also a lot of clues, however, for most, they either don't understand them or worst still, ignore them.

How many people truly know how their workplace is operating behind the scenes?
Even self employed people may not fully know whats going on in their industry and I've heard of so many that ignore the signals and suffer as a result - of course their excuse (or reason) is that they thought it would get better or did not know or understand the underlying issues - it was either a shock or they failed to get out even if they were knowledgeable. We listen to our boss saying how great things are and see the directors driving round in nice new cars but how much do we actually know? The honest answer by most is very little to nothing, at best we are fed positive tag lines which we accept and lap up because it makes us feel good. Then one day we arrive at work like every other day and there are some people who are called administrators padlocking the door.

Ignorance is bliss........ or is it?????

Now think about how most people trade !!


Put it this way, fundamentals did not cause the recession just as much as technical analysis did not cause a recession.

Have a great Sunday

Lee

With all due respect, you are talking absolute crap! Two consecutive negative quarters is the way Central Bankers define a recession.

Other than you, who is saying that fundamentals caused the recession? Fundamentals is a study of the factors that indicate the condition of an economy.

From Investopedia:

Quote:
Macroeconomic fundamentals include topics that affect an economy at large. This can include statistics regarding unemployment, supply and demand, growth, and inflation, as well as considerations for monetary or fiscal policy and international trade. These categories can be applied to analysis of a large-scale economy as a whole or can be related to individual business activity to make changes based on macroeconomic influences.
People like you try and convince me that you trade the fundamentals intraday and use the NFP release to support your case..

Here is the NFP release from the BLS:

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm

It is quite a detailed report and I am wondering if you read through the whole report before placing a trade?

Do you look at the unemployment rate, labor force participation rate, The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons, The number of persons marginally attached to the labor force?

Do you study which sectors added jobs? Average workweek? Average hourly earnings?

Do you study all these factors in an effort to determine whether they are bullish or bearish--intraday only of course--for the instrument you are trading?

oh ok, i was thinking about fundamentals of the companies, and obviously the sub-prime debt affected their fundamentals. so i think we just got our wires crossed

You know so much...

Here is someone who explained in 2006, quite clearly, the fundamental conditions that lead to the financial crisis of 2008...Yet large firms wasting money on real-time news feeds wouldn't have been able to predict this...right?

The big trade on wall street at the time was shorting sub-prime

...you know so much.

Lee Shepherd started this thread Guys, I’m going to put this to bed as the thread (just like others) has derailed.

@new_trader
Sorry to single you out mate. I love a good debate but the thread doesn’t have to tolerate your aggressive and derailing approach. It just prevents others from coming here with questions. I don’t know why you act like you do but it’s not acceptable. We’re all friends here. The forum is Trade2win not post to argue.com. I notice that you pick and choose bits of posts from everyone on here then mis quote, take out of context or simply put in words that are not there. You don’t know how I trade, what I read and when I read. You also do not know about my tax affairs. And yet (in another thread) dictate that I should be paying more than I should. That’s a case for HMRC, not you. Please do not presume you know me or my tax affairs or trading as it makes you look less intelligent than I’m sure you are. If you cannot keep on topic as per the title of the thread states, then please find another one or better still, start your own thread and see who wishes to participate.

Thank you in advance.

Now back on topic:
Is there anyone here that needs help with any questions or aspects about trading.

Lee
