You are crazier that I thought :D

Going through every single post I posted to mark it with a sad face is a move that I wasn't expecting. How old are you? fifteen? 

Just for your information, I never ever marked any of your posts. I simply don't do that. The only move I do is to like it if I do, but there is no way I will select any of those stupid faces to mark a post. Seriously, someone is playing with you big time. 

I don't care if you keep doing this childish thing, it makes me laugh so you can carry on. Just think about that I am showing myself plainly with every move, and if I don't like something I will tell you straight away with a message, there is no way I am going to add a sad face to a post.

You have pissed off so many people that now they are playing with you. Well deserved because you are a w4nker, but Detective don't attack the wrong person because that will hurt you even more.

I wonder if an extension can monitor you keystrokes while you're trading?  Scary stuff guys

Remember this is a largely unmoderated forum that lets you post attachments in BAT format (which is a kind of file that executes commands on a Windows system) so don't trust a f*king thing.  BE SAFE - the guys on here are NOT here to help you.

Anyone that knows a little bit of JavaScript can see that the script is just going through the DOM images and hides the section that are included into.

"keystrokes" "hacking" :D  :D :D :D :D :D :D 

You are funny after all.

I DO know a "bit" about Javascript. And it's entirely possible for an extension to log keystrokes, and mouse movements (look at services like Hotjar & CrazyEgg & Grammarly that have built entire businesses around Javascript doing this on people's websites/browsers). It's also possible for a script to trigger both keystrokes and clicks on your behalf too.

And while a script might not currently do it, extensions and remote scripts can change/"update" at anytime (and web browsers don't even alert you of the updates (or the changes in them)). Even if the code is open-source on GitHub - it's often the case that it's not downloaded from there and the version in the Extension/PlayStore may have had modifications/additions done to it (legitimately [usage tracking] or illegitimately [keytracking/session scrapping]).

If you don't entirely trust the developer/business who created a browser extension - don't install it.

If you know about Javascript just review the code and you will see that is completely harmless. 

If you see any danger on it you have seen too many hacker movies.

Someone that does know about Javascript does not write a post like you do, they simply check the code and know what is doing.

Please post the code and I'll review it.

It is posted already , you are posting in the wrong post. This post is just nonsense from beginning to the end. Check my profile , you will see it there

I see it now. Great script, but I think you'll find most people will want to be using it to block you for being a confrontational hot-head that's too quick to respond with a put down than add value to this community.

They are free to use it that way if they wish so, No problem.

You are the one that is calling others hot-head.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
