(I would have liked to think I was a bull!)

 

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?

I have queried that fact here.

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.

      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.

      EURUSD: The pair looks to weaken further as it holds on to its downside pressure. On the upside, resistance comes in at 1.1600 level with a cut through here opening the door for more upside towards the 1.1650 level. Further up, resistance lies at the 1.1700 level where a break will expose the 1.1750 level. Conversely, support lies at the 1.1500 level where a violation will aim at the 1.1450 level. A break of here will aim at the 1.1400 level. Below here will open the door for more weakness towards the 1.1350. All in all, EURUSD faces further downside pressure

    • Date : 22nd May 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd May 2019.FX News Today Comments from Fed’s Bullard that a rate cut could become an “attractive option” if inflation continues to disappoint added support to bond markets ahead of the release of the Fed minutes from the May meeting. Ahead of today’s Fed minutes, this helped to lift sentiment and underpin stock market sentiment, which struggled for direction amid conflicting trade headlines. Reports that the US administration is considering blacklisting up to 5 Chinese surveillance firms, including Hikvision added fresh concerns about a deepening of trade frictions and put pressure on tech stocks. The GER30 futures are heading south in tandem with US futures after a mixed session in Asia, where mainland China bourses underperformed. The FTSE 100 future is getting some support from a weaker pound, which is shedding the gains seen in the wake of May’s latest Brexit deal yesterday At the same time, China’s ambassador to the US said Beijing is ready to resume talks and ASX and Nifty 50 slightly higher. The WTI future meanwhile fell back to USD 62.58 per barrel. Charts of the Day Technician’s Corner EURUSD spiked up briefly to 1.1188, just above its 20-day MA, though has now eased back under 1.1150. The Euro remains in sell the rally mode, given the Dollar’s yields advantage, and relatively better performing economy. EURUSD has posted 6-straight sessions of lower daily lows, a bearish signal, and has sights set on the May 3 bottom of 1.1135, then 2019 lows of 1.1110 seen in late April. XAUUSD: Renewed dollar strength, along with the return of risk-taking conditions has dented gold’s safe-haven appeal. The US easing of restrictions on Huawei has helped equity sentiment, to the detriment of gold prices. Next support comes at $1,270 in the near term, then $1,267.30, , the May 2 low, then $1,258.38, the 200-day MA. Main Macro Events Today Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Prices are expected to rise in April, with overall inflation expected to stand at 2.1%y/y, compared to 1.9% y/y last month. Retail Sales and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) –Canadian sales are expected to have eased by 0.4% m/m in March, compared to 0.8% m/m in February. FOMC Meeting Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) FOMC minutes, detailing the view of each of the Fed Governors and FOMC Members, shed light on their perspectives regarding the future of the US economy. FOMC left policy on hold earlier this month, and it cited solid growth, low headline and core inflation, though Powell said in his presser that the weakness was likely “transitory”.
