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.

Would any of those people you mentioned cares to come here to demonstrate how it's done ? If not then that leaves just you. I know of no other curve fitter brave enough.

You obviously don't read that book. That author always tries to convince people there is no single way. If you don't like my way, let's see what you have got.

The trading industry tries to hide the losses of Mr trend Trader Richard Dennis . in today's terms they amount to almost $600m. He even failed to follow his own rules and had to be sued.

We can debate this as long as you like , but please talk about hiding losses of your gurus first.
