I thought the oil report comes out today! I guess not...
Traded okay today. Kept having internet disconnect issues so my live streaming was cut short. Going to end early today and go to work early.

Hi Wabu,

Well done on your thread. It provides great reading.

I'm sure you can understand why people (especially the experienced ones here) doubt you are for real. They (including me), have seen it several times before.

The only way around this is....... post screen shots.

Now..... A true troll will come out with some excuse as to why they can't or 'why should they' etc etc. But, if you are posting your results anyway, there is zero harm in posting screenshots of the said trades and will chase out the doubters. By doing so you will then have much more backing and people will be on your side with advice and kind words, without, unfortunately, you get thrown to the wolves, ignored and discredited - a troll will not care about this, a true trader with results will - which one are you??

For an example of this, check out my trading diary in the signature link below. This will give you some idea on how to be transparent when talking with people on the internet. Just as much as if you were in the pub, people don't wish to hear bollox, they want results.

Another transparent person on here is Brewski, you should also look him up. He also posts screenshots of, not just the P/L but of the whole platform. Naturally there is nothing wrong with this at all....... unless one is hiding something of course.

Regards,
Lee

Found a good entry position while secretly watching the chart at work and went in for a little bit. Made a quick buck. Out for the rest of the day today but watch the oil chart!! I think it's going for a significant drop today. If I was at home, I would have entered a short right now.

wabu27 started this thread @Lee Shepherd Hello Lee. Thanks for the advice. I can post screenshots but I don't think it's necessary since I live stream my trades every day on my youtube channel. The entire IB platform is shown on the videos and I have nothing to hide. Look me up, stockfather, on youtube!
And I will check out your diary and Brewski today after work

Wabu,

With respect its comments like this that cause people's suspicions. Everyone is aware of the fact of YouTube hits and paid for channels etc.

Without beating around the bush mate or f**king around discussing why nots, simply put, if you have time to post on Youtube plus on various other sites, you certainly have time to post up screenshots. And there you have it. I'll leave it up to you.

Lee

PS: Sometimes my mouth types for me, this is one of those occasions.

wabu27 started this thread well, here are some screenshots from my phone. doing this especially for you Lee.
I dont care about the trolls that wont believe me. Instead of waiting for my screenshots, watch my video and the commentary I make. I try to capture my thoughts behind the trades I make in each video.

Solid, light trading today. After exiting my position and looking for new entry points, fell asleep as I worked 15.5 hours yesterday...

Solid trading again starting at 6:00pm PST. Saw the chart all pointing to downward direction but just wasn't going down so finally exited all my positions. Soon afterwards, monster drop to the downside. I saw a drop happening to 48.80, as mentioned in my video today, but didn't expect such a huge drop so early in the day; I was picturing constant drops throughout the day. If you guys didn't follow CL today, check out the chart. Fun, resistance play. Something to take into consideration for next time. Little disappointed I missed out on all the action today, but not feeling as bad as I've hit new highs this week and had a pretty good run.

Hi Wabu, have you thought of editing the vids so they run for 5-10 mins. I think you'd get more views and a better following.
