The Victor Meldrew Traders Thread.

Whats this thread for:

Well I'm sure there are a number of traders out there who have reached 'a certain age' and are a bit miffed with all that's 'wrong' in the world of trading. Post yours here.

Why have it:
Because I've been clogging up the "Anyone scalping the FTSE Futures" thread with my rants and they deserve better.

I'll start the ball rolling ...

Fed’s Janet Yellen cuts hawkish rate talk: ‘The recovery still feels like a recession to many Americans’

Theres a reason for this! IT IS STILL A RECESSION - for any American who isn't a banker or ex member of the FOMC.

$250,000 dollars for a speech. How many backs do you have to 'scratch' to get offered those kind of gigs when you leave a public sector job.
You don't see many Nurses or Bin men being paid obscene amounts of money to speak in Abu Dhabi.

That's about as much use as a chocolate tea pot.
These are actual values from tonights trading.

Secret stock market calendar ! FFS.

https://w3.newsmax.com/LP/Finance/AB...mo_code=F847-1

"You too can have access to this 'superior' 'secret' calendar!"
Duh! Its not a secret if you post it on the internet.

"Cold war scientists, mathematical genius's, nuclear missiles, savants, simple foolproof strategy". They actually say these things in the video. I couldn't stop laughing.
The guy selling this at the start is a Shakespearean actor he's listed on IMDB. Aren't there laws against this yet?

HFTs are just sophisticated pickpockets, with compliant cops & exchanges. They ruin trading just as regular pickpockets ruin tourism.

What he means is "HFT's are better at picking pockets than him", and they're taking his share of a corrupt game.

And do you know who I blame ...

... myself.
If the game changes don't lay down and whine about it (unless you start your own thread) learn a new strategy and get back in the game!

(Feeling a little better already.)

So have your rant here, then sit back and think about what YOUR going to do to improve!
Unless of course your particular area of trading is immune to change!

Absolutely fantastic thread Postman. Actually I was trawling the T2W forum today looking for a place to rant about my personal trading today, yet couldn't find an apt place to vent, but was a little pre occupied to start a thread. 5 stars from me old boy.

My rant was on how hard I had to bloody work for the pips I made today(having a few Ales had made me forget to rant, and your thread has just reminded me).
Only for my gf to point out that it's still more than a months wage in some parts of the country. I guess just like the old adage of cutting losses, and letting winners run. I hope and pray when things go bad, and get complacent, and ungrateful when things go well.

Bonne nuit mon ami.

Best
John
