Martin Cole in Defence

Hi
I recently received a mail from a beginning trader who pointed me to the Trade to Win forum where as he put it...."negative stuff" was posted about me. I cant recall ever seeing this before, and would like to just put a few things from a different perspective.

It is true that in 2003 my software was 500.00GBP per month. That was "8 years ago" As soon as I got the user levels up this price was slashed to 197GPB I am not linking this post to my site, this is NOT a plug and have no reason to make it so.
I do have a full trading course on YouTube that is 100% free and gets 1,000s of views, again I am not linking to that as this is not the purpose of this post.

I am more than willing to help anyone and receive many mails each week that I go out of my way to answer in the most honest respectful way that I can.

In all the years I have been trading (I have now moved to New Zealand and am semi retired) I have helped many 100's of traders to the best of my ability. Have I deliberately ripped anyone off, or taken something from them for less than I have delivered? Absolutely not.

It is very easy today to verbally abuse and attack from a computer keyboard when signed in with false name, its a shame that on many forums today we see the "attack" response. I really cant see the purpose in negative posting. Sure we all get frustrated, but it's not a justification to vent anger on another person.

I am sure there are some very genuine traders on this form, and indeed I have read some very sensible posts (Only just joined)

One thing I cannot agree with is the "mechanical" trading system based on price. There is only ONE thing that ever moves a price and that is the BELIEF in a higher or lower value in the future. Note I did NOT ATTACK mechanical systems, I just said "I cannot agree" so please respect my belief as I respect yours. At the end of the day if you and I both make money in doing what we do, does it really matter.

Well thats it, thats all I gota say. I'm off fishing in a crystal clear New Zealand Lake.

Have a GREAT day

Martin Cole

Did you mean 5 years ago ? Anyway one of my friends attended your course when you were in Spain and has put into practice much of what he learned and has been entirely positive about you. He has since developed a quite unique approach that has a high reward to relative risk. He demonstrated it to me and I was very impressed.

That seems like a sincere protest against unfair criticism, to me. Unfortunately, some of the good get included with the bad in these cases. That's life, extremely unfair, but it happens.

Thanks for clearing that up, although I had never heard of you before now.

Providing that he isn't Uncle Albert and that he has retired to the middle of a lake in NZ, I'm prepared to be magnanimous in my decision to forgive anyone who was brainwashed by said Uncle Albert.

Hello,
This is my first post post here ,and after trading options,futures and shares for about 10 years with break even success, Martin Cole's system is the first system to really gel with my 'trading personality'.
He is a genius in his field and I am looking forward to learning as much as I can with his sytem within the foreign exchange marketplace.
Thanks,
Chris
