Oh Doom, why not ask for their pecker size instead. Guess the average would be a foot or so judging by the amount of bertie bullshazzas around here. Could be a mildly amusing thread though.


ps this year, no. overall yes. could change b 4 year end either way as I'm up to my nuts in it right now.....

Stopped blowing accounts but until I recoup my losses over the past umpteen years I will not consider my self to be profitable. That's spread-betting only and does not include shares.

I'm not profitable, i have had good runs of a few months but then the signals mix up and it gets harder again

Hedge quants have made the greatest losses on any asset portfolio class since 2008. A hedge quant is roughly equivalent to a technical trader. The difference is, they're not whining about the current lack of trend - which quants and most tech traders work with. They've identified central bank and political interventions are largely responsible for the current nature of markets where historical correlations are quite out of whack and will wait for the markets to come back in line with normal market dynamics. That is, they're not changing their stripes to suit the market - they're waiting for normal service to resume.

That just shows how bad the commercial world is at trading - even though we know commercial trading with millions and billions of capital is completely different to the retail traders world - with average Capital well under $10k -( or even $5k ) and only a very small percentage of retailers forex traders with over $100k + capital accounts.

I can only talk Forex - as I have never traded any other instrument - but for me a trend is any number of pips over 3.

I am no "fortune teller" - like so many in the commercial world and to me static analysis is "dead" analysis - the market is dynamic - every 30 -60 mins all can change - forget trying to be accurate for next week or month ;-)

30 pip trends with stops under 5 pips and RR's over 5 or 6 are extremely profitable for me - so why are they not to the commercial world ? ( yes i do know why) ;-)

Well actually even 3 pip trends might be massive to a commercial HFT fund - and yes those lot have been embarrassed on how much they were making 2 - 3 yrs ago - until all and sundry got in on the act ;-)

I have had my best 3 yrs in trading - with 2011/12 being my best.

I am using exactly the same method since 2008 - although with slight "evolution" and of course like any skill you spend a massive amount of time doing - you generally improve - although by no means exponentially ;-)

Also worth remembering the commercial finance world is corrupt and devious and they tell more "porkie pies" than any retail traders ;-)

In fact PLDB - if you asked them the size of their peckers - i am sure the average would be well over 2ft - lol

Have a good week guys and next year we need to get you lot making money ;-)
