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
