You the Liar, the Blind, the Idiot, return to my post (page 17) and see how I corrected the price of shorting USD/CAD in the post just after I did a mistake. Stupid Trader!

Yes you did but then if you recall, the following day, you typed "short usdcad 1.0157 target 1.0157", which clearly implies that you were looking to take the trade off as a scratch. A couple of days later when spot had fallen it suddenly became a 100 pip profit. You used your convenient typo to magic 100 pips out of the market. As I pointed out, it's the only 100 point profit you have claimed. This is no coincidence, it's because you fiddled the handle. In fact you probably do a lot of handle fiddling, I would imagine.

I never claimed to have traded them.

As it happens, I don't trade USD/CAD (or hardly ever; last time was a couple of months ago I think). If I had been trading USD/CAD at the time your friend allegedly took that short trade, then assuming that my sentiment (which is almost always fundamentals-driven) towards USD/CAD had been the same as his, then I would at least have considered taking them, and been happy to show you the relevant part of my account (in return for you showing me yours of course).

This is the first of his trades that I've actually criticised and my main criticism is actually that he didn't (apparently) take some pretty good opportunities that were there for the taking, on the same instrument, subsequent to his initial (alleged) trade.

You are just another blusterer, like meanreversion...who doesn’t even know what an indicator is.

Call me names if you will, but actually, I haven't crticised his other trades (haven't studied many of them actually) and defended one of them earlier. I was actually a potential ally (apart from his arrogant attitude and ridiculous thread title), in the sense that I didn't share some of the specific criticisms made by some of the other posters to this thread. This trade and his supporter calling me names isn't doing anything to make me continue as a potential ally.

New_trader's raison d'etre is to accuse everyone else of "bluster", that's all he does.

As for medbs, if you show us some broker printout with the CAD trade then I will retract everything I have said and concede that you are indeed a master trader.

Well, hilariously, one of the threads he started was entitled:

"Why you should always use Stops".

Seems like his pal didn't get that memo.

Re: The final Holy Grail!

Why is this thread called the final holy Grail and not just the holy Grail. Sounds you got a few of them and this is the last on your list. What's the deal with these last two trades?? Why do they have come back above your entry prices??
