What are your thoughts on this quiz? Would you say you could relate yourself to any of these animals?

What you should be not allowing is the "gomarkets" forex broker hyperlink in the text of the original post . . . surely?

Seems wiz has a problem with neutrality and even handedness.I guess that's the new policy here.Naturally this is doing nothing to stem the outflow of long termers here.You won't be seeing much of zdo in future.

I can only assume they want a complete change here in favour of a more commercially successful model.And we know what that means don't we?

Hi Mitsubishi,

 

Please can you post your quiz? I've a suspicion it might be quite good fun . . . :)

 

BlueHorseshoe

 

Yeah,here's the first question.

 

1- With your hands tied behind your back,and a good length of gaffa taped over your mouth,how many spammers,stealth vendors,shills,hostile moderators,absent owners/members and infraction points do you estimate it will take to kill this place off once and for all?

Doesn't really make much sense either way. Do TL have an IB deal with "gomarkets" or whatever they were called? I doubt it. TL IB links generally seem to be automated, like when I type the wrod "tradestation" . . .

 

Maybe The Wiz has "gone native"?

Of course TL is a business and we shouldn't forget that. We also should not forget that it is the best of all the rest of the trading forums and I for one find the management more fair and easier to deal with than any of the others.

 

Not all vendors are snake oil salesmen and not all products discussed here are worthless. I think a ban on any mention of commercial products or services by their authors keeps valuable information away from us all. We all use products and services in our trading. I think TL does a good job of letting us hear from providers while at the same time working hard to eliminate blatant, repetitive spam.

 

Better a free market and let the fools and charlatans reveal themselves as they always do. Who in their right mind spends time on threads where some semi literate braggart talks about making a billion dollars trading forex or other threads with nothing but past posted trades.

 

We should assume that on any free forum we will always have to shift through a mountain of buschwa to find value.

 

In the meantime if anybody knows a forum that is better managed or contains more information please let us know. For sure it aint ET, Mikes or T2W.

 

In the meantime, thanks TW.

 

cheers

Hi Wiz,

 

You weren't meant to remove the image with the descriptions, just the broker hyperlink underneath!

 

Without the image, the thread now has absolutely no point of reference; it is a signpost to nowhere, like something from Baudrillard's worst nightmares . . .

 

Please can you restore the image? If I don't have the chart from the opening post how will I know whether to define myself as a Bull or a Shark or a Squirrel or a Smurf, or whatever those helpful classifications were?

 

Or . . . why not just remove this whole pointless, meaningless, rambling thread?

Maybe I am missing something but I could not find a quiz anywhere on this thread. Was it removed?

 

Yes, the quiz was removed.

 

It was a quiz to help you decide what kind of animal you are: a Shark, a Bull, a Squirrel, or a pug-faced seal cub destined to be clubbed over the head and made into a nice hat . . .

 

'Cos that's really why you came to a TRADING FORUM, isn't it - to find out what kind of animal you were?

 

You want one more chance? Get dressed. I'll show you my charts.

Knowing what type of animal you are is great for storytelling, but in the reality of trading the markets do not care and will take your money just the same.

 

The market is fair. Sometimes you get to enjoy a bounty and sometimes you get held down over a barrel and get relentlessly taken advantage of. Most traders, though, are traumatized by the latter and have difficulty with the future. Few traders learn that the boning you get is only figurative. The market doesn't only take money from you.

Right, I was saying that if you are worried about your trading animal character then you are probably losing money.

      Hello everyone!
      I am an advanced trader, with many years of experience (about 15 years - 10 living exclusively from this)
      I am going to give you some tips that you must know:
      There are going to be many people who tell you that trade is easy, that with only crossiing a line  with another one you will win a lot of money.... and that´s not true.  No, Sir, reality is far away from that. Many people who start arrive here with the hope that someone "gives them" a free method, they watch youtube videos thinking that this will give them the "strategy" and in a few days they realize that it does not work for them - they lose money - and then They go looking for a new one ... and so on. YES, IT´S TRUE YOU EARN IN TRADING, A LOT. BUT THINK: for a few to win (10% + any BROKER) many others must lose (90% people). YOU MUST HAVE A MONEY MANAGMENT FORMULA ( you can email me) People study so many years to live on this, not because they are dumb, but to know what they do, when, and have absolute effectiveness. It´s very easy to get lost here: do not disperse, jumping from one to another strategy WILL NEVER give you money, it will only waste your time and make you nervous when trading. PEOPLE WHO CHANGE THEIR METHOD CONSTANTLY : LOOOOSE ALWAYS.   If you have the knowledge to develop it, take your time and do it.  Always try it first on DEMO for at least 2 weeks! If not: search to buy a solid strategy (no you tube videos pleassse ! Avoid losing money! ) This is like any business, it requires some capital to start (capital = money in the broker + solid made /purchased strategy) If you are lost: I RECOMMEND YOU NOT TO WASTE TIME IN YOUTUBE, JOIN PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE AND IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A METHOD ... PLEASE !!!! DO NOT BUY 10 BAD AND CHEAP METHODS, SAVE MONEY AND BUY ONLY 1 BUT EXCLUSIVE AND MUST ALLWAYS HAVE SUPPORT !!!!!  Do not buy Signals! They never keep up with constant profits! One week will win and the next will lose. Nothing that does not depend absolutely on you will give you the money you are looking for. And if you do not have a strategy (made or purchased) do not even try PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: DO NOT USE REAL MONEY! AT LEAST 2 WEEK DEMO FREE HELP HERE!!!!!  IF YOU FOLLOW MY ADVICE YOU WILL BE PART OF THAT 10% WINNER, email me.
      Have a nice trading day

      So I've been 18 for about 4 months, since I turned 18 I started up an account, and basically thought I was doing amazing because of beginners luck, put in some of my savings and managed to do well, some days I would make £200, one day I even made £900, after time I lost my profits and made a loss as well. I've realised I need to spend the time analysing the market and making technical judgments. I'm trying to read more and spend a lot of my time looking at the charts. is there any advice people can give me. and is making 5% a week a realistic goal to set myself? before anyone assumes that im looking for a get rich quick scheme, im certainly not, I see every loss ive made as a lesson and ensure that I learn from each mistake I make. 
      any advice about indicators, strategies, how to analyse the market, or even analysing earning reports would help me.

      Does it mean that you are an expert just because you make a lot of profit? The amount of profit cannot be used to measure the value of a trader. Yes, you must be doing something right if you are making a frequent profit. However, that does not determine if you are an expert or not just by your profit. This is quite a common misunderstanding in the forex industry.
      Making a large profit is only one side of the forex market. Majority of forex traders tend to lose most of the time after they have experienced profit. But why?
      So many traders fall into a fantasy land where they make an endless amount of money at the beginning. Many beginner traders tend to gain profit at the start not knowing the importance of technical analysis of the market.
      The experts on the other hand who stayed became wealthy and stayed that way, continue gaining profit, are all knowledgeable when it comes to the basics. Experts have dialed many ways to control their minds to be set right to be a trader.
      Understanding of the market is a must know anyway. Expert traders wait patiently until the right opportunity comes. Opportunity comes to everyone.
      What differentiates the experts and the beginners is that experts know when the opportunity has come and knows to take advantage of it. Making profit by luck is possible, and yes luck is also very important. But can you profit with luck every time?
      How an expert trader is determined is not by how much the person gained, it’s about the precision and the frequency of results. Profit can’t be maintained by luck. It is maintained and is a result of precision and strategical execution. You shouldn’t worry because you’re not gaining any profit right now.
      You should be building your skill sets to be a better trader by experiencing many trading situations of losses and wins. If you invest in your time to improve, your results are guaranteed to increase more frequently and will become more stable.

    • Date : 23rd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.FX News Today A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET. Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street. Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures. The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan. Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution. New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures. Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years. Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July. Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher. The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole. GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency. Main Macro Events Today   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
