You want noobs to follow your post rather than my criticism of your post?

Change your signature to

Mr trend trader Dennis withdrew from such capital management in the spring of 1988 after his clients suffered losses of$60 million reportedly lost in 19871988.

I suggest you lot stop peddling this trend trading crap.

In a word: YES

I believe my post was relevant and useful to the OP's question. Your criticism of my post demonstrates your complete lack of understanding of the context of either the original post or my reply.

As usual, you are soiling a perfectly good thread with your dogmatic, parrot-like horse sht. It's unfair on the OP to spoil his thread like this. As such, I will stop posting here in the hope that you do the same and the thread gets back on track.

I'll leave you to have the last word - make it good.

All you hindsight trend traders are asked to show a journal of live advance calls on trends set ups , but none of you can or want to do it.

Just retire at 75 from trading.

I'm glad I deleted the post I made yesterday evening. FL and EJ have turned this into the usual mess.

But at least the OP saw it.

I saw it too. It was typical curve fitter drivel of it might go up or it might go down, no use to anyone. Foroom does have a point, you are unable to demonstrate a profitable forward prediction even if your life depends on it.

Foroom was further right about curve fitter aggression. I was minding my own business and relaying my own experience. But you want to drag me into it. Once I am in I tend to go all the way.

In summary, research and practice drawing trend lines to help you understand the structure of the market.
Thank You!

That's because they already know the moment they put in a trade, the trend will change on them, and they don't know why.

Thanks in Advance

You can measure trend in all sorts of ways. Trendlines / channels / swing high - lows / MAs / HA candles / bar breaks - counts yada yada yada, the list is endless! There is no one correct to measure trend.

If you want to make any real money in this game without being too risky, you have to at least in some part fade 'a' trend, you have to seek value in some way. This means giving up the psychological comfort of price confirmation for value. You need to be getting involved in these areas being respectful of risk.

Theres all sorts of ways you can do that, theres the good the bad and the fugly. It doesnt really matter how you do it, but the more exposure you can secure at favourable prices, the bigger your window for profit will be. It can be done

You two, fl and ej, have fouled T2W like sh*it on a blanket and what you have to say has as much value as a bucketload of the stinking stuff. I dare say you're real proud of yourselves.

Not sure why are you getting all excited. Would you like to demonstrate for the curve fitters ? No one else dares.

You mean curve fitters like those in Market Wizards who are recognised as some of the most successful and best traders in the world? Nor can I see any of them holding open ended shorts for the sake of a tiny bit of overnight carry either.
