If you are any good at trading ,you would want your mindset to be clear and focussed on your trading , and free of ambiguity and crap from losers from forums.

A boxer can't win by listening to the crowd , but by listening to his coach.
i trade off weekly levels, and the US market only opens from 8:30pm or 9:30pm (depending on DLS)

so i think I am justified in finding a few minutes now and again to post on T2W
and occasionally on other forums
(but they tend to lack the lulz)

I am VERY GOOD at trading, my mind is very clear and I am very focused.
But my total trading activity probably amounts to no more than one hour of physical labour per week


I think what you meant to say i your post was
"newbie wannabes, who think they know it all,
tend to be scalping on 1 minute charts,
and their heads are so far up their own @rses
that THEY have no business distracting themselves with forums"

When volatility breaks out undivided attention is required on the charts and trading requires a load of concentration , and precise timing of entries.
not if you use the quiet periods to set up your STOP entries, audio alerts etc,
and then DO NOTHING until something triggers

trading requires a load of concentration
not if you use the quiet periods to plan your targets, safety exits etc contingent on price reaching a level to trigger a trade

So THAT'S what I should be doing in quiet periods. Instead I **** profusely, post lulz on T2W and then wonder why I'm such a loosing tarder.

So how are you winning if you are posting here??.
You keep posting to tell us you are missing trades because you are posting. :rolleyes:

I decided to take the emotions out of the equation and hired a couple of girls to input trades and watch the screen.

Most of all , I wanted to learn from you here.
