just popped in from the sun m8.
do you think some people need to stop trading?
eg-traded for 10yrs and lost money-keep no records and bury their heads in the sand?
i had a go yrs ago on a 20k account and made a little but found it stressful and life sapping.
i eventually threw in the towel

Hi mate,

Definitely for some people. Some treat it like gambling and although there are similarities, they are actually worlds apart. If someone has been trying for many years with countless cash down the drain, I wouldn't necessarily say that's a reason to give up. On the contrary, keep trying and never give up on your dreams. Whatever they may be or how hard it seems. Never give up. Having said that, that doesn't mean to say that person has to keep bleeding cash, paper trade instead. And as always keep excellent records.

We learn from our failures.

Hi Foroom,

Thank you for your reply and welcome to my thread. As is titled I am willing to offer help. If you are in any doubt to my long and continued success with the financial markets then please feel free to do some research on me. You could start with checking out my trading diary. I would however request that you keep on topic and keep it relevant. This is a great forum and a great place for many to come. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

All the best.
Lee

Hi Cbrads,

Thank you for your kind offer. I see this competition has been going for some time with great success. However, my only competition is me.

Thanks anyway though.

PS: Keep up the good work. The thread has been noticed and not always for the winners.

It's another sunny afternoon. I'm chilling and catching some rays. As the title says. Anyone need any help?

Lee
I do. My question when to take profit wait for the trade to peter out? Should I wait for price to show its hand and reverse somewhat, losing a bit o'profit or get out while trending still and leave something on the table

Can you help ME?:confused:

Hi Lee

Have you ever traded for or on behalf of someone else such as an investor or via a joint venture? Do you think someone like yourself could turn a good profit trading for someone else with say a £250k bank roll or is that too small?

Hi Piphoe,

First of all, don't be confused. Now here's the hard and somewhat controversial part. A trade is always set before you place the trade. The most important part is exit, not entry. Contrary to popular belief. If the entry is wrong or a mistake has been made, chop the trade and take the hit. Now here's the fun part: when you make a trade, stick by it. Do or die attitude. Don't listen to reports, news, your friends or anything else that may sway you. F**k em all. More importantly, don't listen to yourself. You make the trade (your bed), lay in it till the end. In other words, follow your plan through. If it doesn't work, evaluate after the event not during.
