The above from the other thread is not making sense. Why would such a corrupt market give you 50/50. Why, that's even better than the casino. Surely any corrupt market worth their salt should only give 1:99 against?

Hi Beginner Joe - the market makers / players are so clever they have to keep the regulators happy as well as take as much money out of the market without making it look totally fixed.

Therefore they let between 20 and 40% of the retail market win - but the actual percentage of continual winners ongoing is less than 10% and could be as low as 5%.

So 50 /50 stats and methods will always give winners and losers - and ideally the market wants you great on demo - ie making say 200% a month plus - and then allows you to even make small gains with real money - before you get greedy and then suddenly you will have a row of say 7 or 10 or even more bad trades in a row - and besides blowing your psych - in many cases it will also end up blowing your account.

The market is full of lies and false facts - when you have spent the amount of time I have as a retailer you will see it understand it and hopefully be able to atke full use of it - to your gain :)

You always pay Triggerfish. You pay with time and effort. Some people try to shortcut that by paying with cash. I doubt that works so well, but I wouldn't know.
+ 1

to add....also pay with opportunity cost...in other words: don't give up your day job

ffsear isn't this guy Mr Spreadbetting? The 'real' name sign off and the incorrect name dropping of someone who taught him is very much his modus operandi...

In this case the claim is a Bank of England trader??? The BofE only trade spot & swaps to manage their risk between themselves and the Treasury - they do not trade for profit. The only profits they make are on note issue charges and tariffs...

A BofE trader would know literally zero about pursuing profit through FX trading unless he had come from a corporate FX desk, which would never ever ever happen.

Now, now Random, you sound like a spoilt little child running of to mummy to tell tales(false ones at that).

jealousy is a very cruel mistress.

Now what is the route of your angst pray tell, is it that you didn't have a professional to teach/mentor you(ah boo hoo), how about you don't have any professional friends in this field, naturally, you don't have any friends at all, or how about, you're trading is so bad that you have to come onto a forum in a willy waving fashion trying to prove something perhaps.

:rolleyes:

I sincerely hope your trading does not include assumptions like you have made here, by adding 2+2, and coming up with 17 :LOL: , as you will be proven very wrong, and obviously, you will be shown to be a loser in the markets, and in life too(and I wouldn't want that for you).

Now if you would like to know the name of the person who taught me, or would like a chat with them I suggest you wind your neck in, stop showing yourself up as being a crass buffoon, and send me a PM(with politeness, and courtesy of course), and I shall pass the particulars on to you, thus saving yourself the public embarrassment of looking foolish, and more importantly saving me the time of embarrassing you in spectacular fashion.

P.S. I do however hold a slight modicum of respect for you, that you are actually trying to "tell tales" infront of my face, rather than behind my back by pm'ing the mods in an attempt to get me banned, as others with less of a spine than you have tried in the past. Alas I am here to stay.

P.P.S. I hope you have something more constructive to add to the trading journal I may start on Monday on the Dax.

Lots of Love

No sooner does your previous ban run out than you're back being offensive, rude and unpleasant again. Just to let you know Mr. Fox I have once again complained to the moderators regarding your behaviour and your manners which seem entirely inconsistent with the general sense of brotherhood amongst the vast majority of this site's members.

Moderators - please consider the obvious on-going intent of this member and the additional work for you and hassle for all of us in continuing to tolerate his bad vibes not to mention the clear transgressions of site guidelines, once again, evidenced in the post of his I quote.

So in your eyes its ok for someone to call me a liar, a bullsh1tt3r, and besmirch my good character by calling me mr spread-better, which I find rude, and very offensive, yet I can not respond(without the use of foul language), by letting others know that maybe they're trading isn't as good as they would like, so are quick to call me names. I have not been rude, offensive, and if you get offended by the word "buffoon" I sincerely hope you don't go into the real world without your ear warmers on, as you will hear a lot worse from the general public in passing.

However, we are all grown ups here, and people can call me what they like, as I have broad shoulders, and let my trading do the talking, and I must admit you did make me :LOL: at being offended by the word buffoon. You buffoon.
:LOL:

Best
John.

I've little interest in reading your posts in any kind of detail, but I normally read Shakone's posts and I noted he brought something up about the B of E to you so I looked back and to my amazement saw it confirmed. Therefore I pointed out to ffsear that I smell bs. Please direct the name of the 'Bank of England trader' who is assisting you to profit from the markets to this address - [email protected] - I'll read it later.
