How to spot the hindsight trades ?


1)They post hindsight set ups and results  , after the event .There is no evidence it can be traded  for consistent profit by another person .The method to generate real trading profit is nonexistent and  is not disclosed.


2) They only sing about technical set ups, they never post proof of success or live trades in progress. All this is similar to dumb singing, and without any proof of pudding/profitable trading is useless.Just dumb singing does not make money.Traders do not have time to waste reading this dumb singing on technical analysis.

The technical analysis posted has no clear direction or analysis of a trade, one that another trader can benefit from.It is a waste of the reader's time.


A clear example of a live trade posted is here





A clear example of hindsight trades is posted by  teaching guru here




The time of posting, the information on the charts show the time and the wording of the result is evidence.The best thing is avoid hindsight analysts and don't waste time on them, the forums are full of them.



Most traders lose money because they are taught how to  use hindsight technical analysis.The trading educators can get clever after the event.


Ignore the hindsight  trading analysis and gurus .



 Where one "could have" and "should have" placed a trade,  it is too late to trade it.Can't make money with hindsight systems.

I have not seen one clear advance trade from you, if it tests or retests, it is of no use unless I have a clear trade.

I am bored , I am making real money, good trading is boring  .I can also do all this singing and dancing without trading.My trades are placed and making money, real money.

We can carry on with all this singing and dancing for the lulz.

But I don't actually have anything to prove, instead of spending time boasting and making questionable claims I am happy to watch the charts waiting for an opportunity, when one comes along I will take it, simple. Those who boast put themselves under pressure to try and substantiate them and when they find they can't they then start trolling instead, don't they.

I admitted many losses,  but my profits are far greater, so need to be afraid/fear losses.If you post in advance, we can see you are using this technical analysis, if you don't post in advance,  if you don't have confidence in your own technical analysis , how can your readers?


I have a very professional trading mindset, I am a good *****  and my losing trades  give me pride  .This is because I know I did the right thing, and I lost gracefully.


Sounds like a analyst teacher suffering psychological issues with losses.

All my longs system overall makes money, the winners were greater than losing trades, that is not the why I post memes.I am too mature to do that.You know me I just post as it is .


If you post some trades , you can just not post the results, we can work it out.

Fine, so let me explain what I am doing when I post the charts that seem to infuriate you so, look at the example further down in this thread. The eurusd had hit resistance and was pulling back but the pullback faded at the 4 hour support level and the 23.6% Fib level (confluence). Buyers were overwhelming sellers, where might there be more sellers? Higher up and certainly at the resistance level at the prior high. The price action showed that the auction at the support/Fib level was over. The direction of the trade was clear and in line with large time-frame momentum, the risk (stop loss) level was obvious and close by. All you needed to do was to get in. Yes, more sellers may step in but unlikely, why sell low against support? No, their better bet was to sell either well before or well after but not just after the pullback had reversed for price to continue in the direction of the trend, sell high not low, they will be waiting up at the prior high.


All you needed to know was there on that chart, my "now looks to retest the high" was so obvious I felt a bit embarrassed to mention it. Whether you entered there on that chart or shifted down time frames to enter on a micro pullback a bit later didn't matter. 


You once said I should make my charts clearer and perhaps I should, but there was the set up, and entry, and stop level and target. Posted in advance.


Edited to include the chart.

All this complex ta  is why most traders lose.


Keep it simple stupid


Dr Van Tharp “I can answer that question on a number of levels. At the most basic level, people must trade by processing information. Unfortunately, we’re not very efficient information processors. We have a lot of biases that enter into trading decisions. I’ve documented 25 of them in my home study program. However, I think most of those biases can be summarized by realizing that trading/investing are very simple processes and we human beings try to make it into something much more complex. Those biases are all about adding complexity to the world”.

There is nothing complex about it. It is simple chart reading with a basic understanding of how the auction actually works, has always worked. Just because you can't understand it is irrelevant. So long as you keep on attacking technical analysis in general and everyone who posts TA and treat it as some sort of game, then uses TA in their own trading, will keep me repeatedly showing you up as someone who obviously has no understanding of how a market works. And because you have no understanding is precisely why you can't back up any of your wild claims and resort to trolling, childish gibbering and insulting memes. School boy trolling won't make you right. Your claims can't be taken seriously because you can't be taken seriously.

At least the little foresight technical analysis I post in advance I  can actually make money with it.There is no evidence that your subjective, after event  and biased technical analysis makes any money.


Look at your hindsight advice , claims of supposed trades and set ups on eurusd and hindsight comments about my eur usd trade.I am still looking to be interested in reading concise NO BS   analysis, something that can be traded.





I can go to IG's free analysis, at least it is usable  and good.

I agree actually. The eur usd chart followed with 'looks like it will retest highs' is not an advance trade idea. Did you actually take the trade? Also it doesn't help someone who wants to learn trading. An entry, exit and target point would be helpful with that chart. We all know that not all trades work out so there's no harm in being wrong.


Caseynotes, I'm sorry if you feel embarrassed to mention the trade. However not all people in the community are experienced traders or analysts. You may have to explain in a bit more detail and make it obvious as we are all learning from each other and each person has a different outlook to the economy.

Hi , I understand chart reading can take some time to learn but learn you must, price is the first and foremost indicator and is telling you what it is doing, I thought the laboured description was pretty good as well but the chart said it all. When I said price "looks to test the high" that's what I meant, that was the target. The stop level was obvious too (just behind the support/Fib level that caused the pullback to fail). People get hung up about the entry level which is actually the least of your worries. Once the power of the pullback has faded and price has reversed at a major level to continue the trend and their are no more sellers then the entry point doesn't matter, just get in. The important number is your stop level and that it is within your general trading strategy.


The key to these events is judging when is the auction over because that is when you will see price move from one level to the next. Sellers going into that level where hoping price would break down through so they would have sold high to buy back low but that didn't happen. Price reversed against them at that level because there were not enough of them, there was no point then in more sellers joining, they would wait and sell at a higher price later. Not only that but the sellers who where already in were buying to get out of the short contracts.


Learn how to read a chart and be very wary of anyone who shouts TA and indicators don't work and then posts charts that looks like this.

All i see on this chart is support resistance, very simple t/a , it works on indices All I say is buy supports with options , it works >  65% of the time, an edge.I trade it and have confidence to call these trades in advance.


There is no evidence, that any other form of technical analysis works more than 35% of the time.Forget about the salesman trying to sell books, and provides subjective marketing evidence on chart patterns.

Great fun reading your recent posts, was that a mistake when you started risking 10% of your account per trade? It's so easy to miss stuff when you're mucking around on demo. One query though, you started pumping this dow dax options strategy nearly 2 years ago, how come your account has only £1000 in it?

What sort of gibberish nonsense is this, you post an overlay that pretends to rationalise what is a sideways chart that is so over burdened with you own TA as to be unreadable. A simple range play strategy would suffice. 


Overlay this one then, where a single trade win nearly amounts to your total account size. This shows IG's 'account history' app placed on the chart and was posted on the day to counter moronic routine trolling. This is real TA. The bottom chart shows moronic TA (just for reference).

Everything I posted on your technical analysis chart is debunked with rebuttals.Every video I  posted debunked t/a.A healthy discussion requires criticism, but for you it is trolling.You like to have everybody believe in your technical analysis beliefs and analysis, but you can kid the new traders but the pros will laugh at your analysis.

What has any moving average bounce or rejection got to do with supply demand due to absence of buyers and sellers and lack of liquidity?Nothing.All this analysis is in hindsight , like notice the 8 o'clock bar, the chart is taken after 10 am, so this is hindsight analysis. All this singing  about technical analysis does not make money.We are here to make money.




Notice the 8:00 am bar (vertical red line) breaks the 100 ema and then the 200 ema on the next bar, that tells us the price action is turning bearish and we wouldn't wont to be going long would we. Price then raced down confirming our bearish bias before returning to retest the 100 ema at the second vertical red line (9:30) and giving us a great entry for a short.


Why go short when there is a buying opportunity and one can make 500 ticks?Here is the chart to show  that your t/a analysis needs polishing up.Try higher time frames it may work .


In foresight if you had bought the dip , you could , you would have , you might have  made some serious real money.

I know all the hindsight gurus who teach through books and courses.

How do we know tradecity is not just another hindsight education site?




Hindsight is a wonderful thing


Hindsight is 20/20. This is a saying which means that "It's easy to know the right thing to do after something has happened, but it's hard to predict the future." Let me explain why this phrase has that meaning. First, "hindsight" means "thinking about things after they've happened".

Interesting reading


The problem with most educators...is that they often disguise hindsight analysis as actual real live execution




Do trading education scammers (99.99% of the "industry") ever feel guilty?

    • In a week packed with global macro and micro releases, the key events locally are a series of updates on the Australian housing market, which continues to cool as higher interest rates reduce affordability.   Source: Bloomberg   Forex Inflation Currency Interest rate CFD AUD/USD  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  Kicking things off today, housing credit growth for December rose by just 0.3%, the slowest pace since October 2022. At the same time, Retail sales fell by 3.9% in December (vs -0.2% expected), for the most significant monthly fall since August 2020. The fall in December unwinds the 1.4% gain in November, boosted by Black Friday cyber sales. Core Logic Dwelling prices (Wednesday) are expected to show housing prices fell -1.1% in the seasonally quiet month of January, extending the correction that began in May 2022 Building Approvals fell by 9%, following a 56% fall in October. The market is looking for a modest bounce back of +1% in December. Building Approval data is a notoriously volatile data set, and expectations range from -5% to +8% Housing Finance fell for a sixth straight month in November to be 24.8% below the peak of January 2022. The decline is expected to continue in December, with the market looking for a 2.5% fall in December (Friday). Following the release of hotter-than-expected Australian inflation data last week, the RBA is widely expected to lift its official cash rate by 25bp from 3.1% to 3.35% next Tuesday. The interest rate market then has another 50bp of rate hikes priced by August of this year, which would take the cash “peak” rate to 3.85%. The RBA has made clear its “priority is to re-establish low inflation and return inflation to the 2–3 per cent range over time.” While a series of RBA rate hikes in 2023 would be another blow to the housing market, they would be good news for the AUD/USD, already enjoying the tailwinds of the China re-opening and higher commodity prices. Overnight the past 24 hours, the AUD/USD has fallen back to .7050 on soft retail sales data, risk aversion flows, and with the US dollar in demand overnight for month-end rebalancing flows. After reaching and marginally breaching our August .7137 target from this article in Mid-January here last week, we expect to see the current pullback in the AUD/USD continue towards uptrend support at .6900c. At worst, the pullback may extend to the 200-day moving average at .6810 to work off overbought readings and to rebuild energy for its next leg higher towards .7300c.

    • ASX 200 afternoon report: 31st of January 2023 ASX 200 market update as of 31st January, 3.30 pm AEDT.   Source: Bloomberg   Forex Indices Shares ASX S&P/ASX 200 Retail  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  The ASX 200 trades 13 points (0.18%) lower at 7468 at 3.30 pm Sydney time. The ASX 200 has reversed lower this afternoon on month-end selling rebalancing flows, and softer-than-expected retail sales and housing credit data for December. Housing credit growth for December rose by just 0.3%, the slowest pace since October 2022. At the same time, Retail sales fell by 3.9% in December (vs -0.2% expected), the most significant monthly fall since August 2020. While these numbers won’t stop the RBA from raising rates next week or ease downside concerns around the Australian housing market or household consumption, they have helped to ease expectations around the RBA’s peak cash rate as it fell from 3.85% to 3.75%. Consumer Staple sector Falling house prices, higher inflation and RBA rate hikes which will weigh on discretionary spending, have been behind the defensive Consumer Staple sector outperforming. Woolworths added 3.2% to $35.88 Coles added 2.45% to $17.77 Metcash added 1.2% to $4.17 Infant formula maker Bubs Australia plunged 9.15% on disappointing sales in China from extended lockdowns. What does soft housing and retail data mean for the AUD/USD? Read Tony's analysis here. IT sector Megaport plunged by 23% to $5.90 following a disappointing quarterly update BNPL stocks Sezzle -7.69% ZIP -3.28% Block -2.37% fell following the release of the weaker-than-expected retail sales numbers, which will weigh on earnings. Financial sector The big banks have reversed lower on the toxic mix of weaker credit appetite and evidence that households are beginning to feel the impact of the cost-of-living pressures. NAB fell -0.38% to $31.71 ANZ fell 0.24% to $24.97 Westpac fell -0.21% to $23.70 CBA is trading flat at $109.77, after making a fresh all-time high earlier today at $110.45. Mining sector A mixed day for the material stocks despite a bounce in China’s PMI data, now in expansionary territory at 50.1 following China’s re-opening in Mid-December. Rio Tinto added 1.35% to $127.37 Fortescue added 0.32% to $22.65 BHP added 0.28% to $49.36 Mineral Resources fell 3.2% to $89.57 Lynas Rare Earths fell 2.94% to $9.43. Technical analysis Over the past five sessions, there has been a notable loss of upside momentum in the ASX 200 - understandable after a storming run higher in January. Additionally, the ASX 200 is overbought, and for the Elliott Wave enthusiasts, there is a five-wave advance from the October 6411 low on bearish RSI divergence, which warns of a possible pullback. We continue to favour trimming longs ahead of the bull market 7632 high and looking to either buy a sustained break of the 7632 high or a pullback into the 7200/7000 support area.
