What's your favourite part of the trading experience?


Recommended Posts

Cheer up Dmedin, it could get worse.. You could be shorting the Dow. Or voting for Trump. As for revenge trading, simply give it a miss, over trading same. Losing money is a fact when trading, just as making it is. Suicidal dispression? Never. Desperation? Methinks not.  Believe in yourself, she'll be alright mate (as the kiwis say). 

Take a break and clear your mind. Walk or swim or just go somewhere conducive to relaxation. Give screens a miss, then come back, trust your instincts and rationale and knock some trades out of the park. Rage trading is bad for the body, soul and wallet. 

Don't forget to relax and take time for yourself.

You forgot to add a 6th option:

6) Looking for attention from other traders with sh*t posts

 

A very apt description of yourself, Mr 'I don't look at charts but I develop algorithms that ask questions of themselves because that is obviously far easier' :D

So have you been sitting on your 4rse all day letting your algo rake in the money while I've been sweating my guts off trying to trade and sharing most of them on the forum for other people to fade?  Then you come on here and answer one simple question about API keys and then tell me that I'm sh!t.  Well aren't you the big man who knows it all :D

I've been posting my history all week.  Go ahead and post your wonderful algo written in C# so we can all get rich. :D 

Not interested in any of your fancy-schmany 'advanced risk management' library or algorithm cr4p.  I know my limitations.  And if you're not interested in charts then feel free to f*k off.  :)

Post a spreadsheet with your trades from this week, let's see how you have lost money. With times, markets and sizes, let's see if that cry is based on anything worthy.

 

Who the f*k are you to sit there and issue me with orders?

F*k off mate.

And I said already, I am not interested in your pish.

I'm shy and don't speak like this in real life BTW.

Your personality is very well defined in many articles. There is one big reason behind Facebook's usual way of creating a user in an online forum. People speak very differently when they can't hide behind a username. If you had to use your real name you wouldn't insult like that. You have shown yourself in many posts over the years, don't worry, we know who you are.

To be fair to him - I went through a really bad period in the 2000's where everything I looked at turned out to be utter **** - my personality is that of precision, exactness etc and it took a lot of years to overcome this with markets being as they are and I did rather rudely challenge people claiming this and that - so I can see where he's coming from

That being said there's no excuse for some of his posts and comments

In your case I would call you a c*nt to your face.

Since you're Swedish.  :)

1) Because it works and more importantly 

2) Because it annoys the hell out of you

I get more satisfaction from #2 than I do from the money #1 creates

1) Losing money

2) Feeling of desperation

3) Revenge trading/overtrading

4) Crashing into suicidal depression

5) Staring down the barrel of the gun

For me it's No 2 :D 
In life you either need inspiration or desperation. As I don't have any inspiration in me, desperation it is :D
One day I will make it. Say that again. One day I will make it.
Until then, oh that desperation gives me chills every night

Also why is everyone so angry at dmedin? - Without him the forum would be empty and fun-less.

You should thank him for keeping it going after all. So thanks pal 🙏

actually more people would contribute if they felt they could express an opinion without some ignorant little troll jumping up and down insulting and flaming them at every opportunity.

The perpetual negativity in the face of any evidence to the contrary gets extremely tiresome and leads people to better trading forums where the moderators actually take an interest and stamp out blatant flaming.

I don't think so, Tom.

Still waiting to see some of your trades, BTW.

Are you back at insulting like a caveman again?

    • Look Ahead to 02/02/23: ECB, BoE; BT, SHEL, GOOGL, AAPL, AMZN earnings A day after the Fed, the European Central Bank and the Bank of England are expected to raise interest rates. Watch out for live coverage from IG’s Chris Beauchamp and Axel Rudolph. Plus, tech, telco and oil earnings dominate, with reports from BT (BT), Shell (SHEL), Infineon (IFXGn), Apple (AAPL), and Amazon (AMZN).            
    • Charting the Markets: 1 February FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Dow await US Fed decision. And gold jittery ahead of FOMC, as Brent crude and natural gas look at risk of further downside.             This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • As Andrew Bailey and co gear up for their next BoE decision, will it be enough to drive the pound higher against the dollar, or could recession worries return? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Pound sterling Bank GBP/USD Central bank United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What do markets expect from the Bank of England meeting? This Thursday sees the latest Bank of England (BoE) decision. Markets expect the bank to raise UK rates by 50 basis points (bps), a similar amount to the ECB. What is the context? In an interesting reversion to early 2022, when the BoE seemed to lead the way in hawkishness, this week’s crop of central bank meetings points to a Fed rate increase of just 25bps, while Threadneedle Street pushes on with another 50bps hike, as will the European Central Bank. As with most central bank meetings these days, it is the comments around the decision and the voting pattern that will be more important. A more hawkish caucus might emerge, based on the improved (or at least, less bad) economic outlook that has appeared of late. But the outlook for the second half of the year remains gloomy, at best. Markets continue to expect at least one 25bps rate cut by the end of the year, but the bank will not want to give too much credit to this argument, since it is aware that inflation remains solidly above forecasts. GBP/USD outlook Momentum in GBP/USD has stalled at the December highs of $1.24, with little sign that the price wishes to push on ahead of the BoE meeting. Clearly a more hawkish BoE would be needed, but one that is not too hawkish that it then makes markets fret about the impact on the already-tough UK economic outlook. It will be a tough balance to strike, and if markets start to worry about a deeper UK recession, then we could see GPB/USD push back towards $1.20 and the 200-day SMA. Source: ProRealTime
