If at first you don't succeed....?

 

You might as well step in front of a runaway freight train.

i don't post trades on a public board unless I know the very same people who read the thread also know when I closed it.

 

It's an old brokers rule...I'm not here to impress or start pissing contests as others like to do.

 

I'm here to provide technical insight so that YOU can become a better trader.

Well, you how can anybody become a better trader unless you show them how trading is done ? Technical analysis is not trading.

 

Trading is about trade management i.e where you enter, where you exit, how to place stops, how to take profits, how to manage your losses/risk, position sizing. You agree with me ?

 

Sadly that's the thing which is most missing on this board.

I will go to the extent of saying posting trades is the most noble activity on a trading message board.

Then you know that I posted an upside objective of 2800 on the SPX several weeks ago...by extension, that's my trade.

What's actually sad is that just about everyone on this board today is looking for someone to tell them what to do.

 

Very few want to post something technically substantive to provide their reasoning so that lessons learned can be paid forward for others to carry on.

 

All we get are "drive by" posts, of unusable technical analysis, that are usually derogatory in content.

 

And when others attempt to expand the discussion, they become ridiculed because of it.

 

Sorry, but the old days are gone when the exchange of ideas, in the greater battle of beating the market at its own game and not ourselves, has been replaced by real lack of work ethic.

 

And though I do my best to answer all questions posed to me in spite of this demeanor, there are very few, if any, that are asked.

 

So be it.
