I agree, no balance. Most people here wouldn't begrudge t2w making money, after all it is a business venture but if they drive away all the decent posters and traders then what's left??

Notice that although no names were mentioned only 1 current vendor felt the need to defend himself and even touted his wares while doing it! Are you kidding me???

THAT"S what the problem is. It was all marketing. As I said you were just a bit more clever and you still are the only vendor that feels the need to defend yourself here. Why do you think that is

All this "vendor" talk is just too loose.

Look, there are vendors and vendors and vendors.
A good start might be to categorise them properly, before trying to determine what should be done about them.

Add to the list...here's a few to get started.

Broker rep.
Software sales.
EA vendor.
Chart providor.
Mentor.
Coach.


Are they all the same ?

If fundamental traders want to remain blind they need to go walk with the shepherd. Me ? I'm keeping my eyes wide open.

Here's the problem....

You posts stuff. I debunk it. You go postal and make a fool of yourself. You then cry to mommy saying I'm an evil vendor.

Feel free to go point by point through any of my replies in this thread by the way.

Still, I really don't care what vendors do so long as it doesn't get to the point they become mods or spam every thread with marketing. There is always the ignore button for those of you who feel sold out by them. Anyone care to explain why they hate vendors to the point that they need to hammer at it day in day out?

Members such as Toastie, should be encouraged, not driven away. What i see on this forum is a very wide streak, of spite, battered ego and jealousy.

If you can't trade, come on down to T2W, and bash the successful membership. The same old members who have never proven anything, hide behind smoke screens, cats in bags, and snide remarks.

Maybe it is time for a clear out?

To be fair, not everyone bashing vendors are as you say, some of them do know what they're doing. I don't think it's a case of jealousy. It's clearly a case of difference of opinion.

At least Toastie puts up charts, opinions and trades.
If vendors want to sell stuff then they should prove it with action imho not just words.

But to get back to the subject on this thread. I use TA after scorning it for years. Neural nets etc. didn't cut the mustard any better. They are all right some of the time and none all of the time. I even tried " the flight of birds " with much the same results.
I have even got an idea and am looking for some trader enthusiast who happens to own about 20 chickens. Any offers - nearly all free and might work.

Pat - does this involve putting the 20 chickens in the same bag that Hare keeps his cat?
