If there is a question within yourself about whether or not you can make it as a trader and you need a quick answer, try futures. My holy grail is a steady income from trading.

There is a holy grail!

It is called a live broadcast of the ECB meeting, 'strong vigilance', a quick finger and 1000 (or more) lots in ze Bund.

"Holy Grail"?

Nothing to do with trading.

The Holy Grail is a dish, plate, stone, or cup that is part of an important theme of Arthurian literature. A grail, wondrous but not explicitly "holy," first appears in Perceval le Gallois, an unfinished romance by Chrétien de Troyes:[1] it is a processional salver used to serve at a feast. Chrétien's story attracted many continuators, translators and interpreters in the later 12th and early 13th centuries, including Wolfram von Eschenbach, who makes the grail a great precious stone that fell from the sky. The Grail legend became interwoven with legends of the Holy Chalice.[2] The connection with Joseph of Arimathea and with vessels associated with the Last Supper and crucifixion of Jesus, dates from Robert de Boron's Joseph d'Arimathie (late 12th century) in which Joseph receives the Grail from an apparition of Jesus and sends it with his followers to Great Britain. Building upon this theme, later writers recounted how Joseph used the Grail to catch Christ's blood while interring him and how he founded a line of guardians to keep it safe in Britain. The legend may combine Christian lore with a Celtic myth of a cauldron endowed with special powers. (from Wiki)

So there....
That's certainly on topic if delightfully off kilter.

There has also been a suggestion that the French from which this was originally derived "Saint Graal" was possibly a corruption of "Sang Real" or royal bloodline: The vessel for this precious liquid being the living ancestor(s) of [that] line rather than the cup or chalice associated with the currently extent folklore.

I know I should take all of this with a pinch of salt, but I can't help thinking that before we start discounting the existence of fairies and fairy stories which can be neither validated nor debunked, we should apply that same decision making process to the existence of dark matter for which we are all assured by the scientific community really does exist even if it can't be detected or proven.

Let's get off religion and back to trading.

The HG of trading is 100% of many winning trades imho.

Not possible but worth aiming for

Well they could call it "WTF is that", but because there are a lot of literate and technical people in science community, they decided to call it Dark Matter. It's not something they can see, you are right, but it something they cannot see.

See the difference? Well... what I'm trying to say that there are unexplained events happening and we decided to blame it on the dark matter for now..

P.S. Flying Spaghetti Monster is real and I still cannot understand what OP meant by Holy Grail.

I do not think that there are such holy grails and thus traders should not fall prey for such scam programs.
Your are wrong and also quite right!.

There is a holy grail and no you should not fall for scam programs.
The holy grail is in you already, only you can make it happen.
And you really can. But its gonna take a lot of time and practice.
They key is to not lose money while learning, stay in the game, rely on
reality not hope.
The holy grail is good.

Hi Cornix, yes I fully agree. All it needs a a 'holy grail' human to operate the system consistently and away you go.

I recommend people take a look at the Adam principle from wilde ........the actual system is somewhat controversial and open to despute and challenge (what system isnt ?) but the narration and follow up has some very very sobering comments about trading ...including the Author dismissing some of the most famous indicators in the world that he invented .........interesting !

I like to think King Arthur's knights set themselves tasks and one of these was finding enlightenment ( Holy Grail) in their own lives. Rescuing maidens in distress ( enjoying a bit of crumpet ) and slaying mighty dragons ( defeating evil men ) seemed part of their mission in life.

Still relevent today

Can you please specify where I can get grip on what you are recommending?
