Some of it very true, but he is only telling half the truth.He is hiding the other half, so it makes it easier to sell his education, seminars and books.If he told the other half, nobody would buy anything from him.


Same as Wyckoff , he was a broker ,who wrote books , sold t/a and bs , so they would all generate more income for his brokerage.Most of his teachings are probably not true either.


Now you have an industry of blind leading the blind , or marketeers of misinformation.

Elder might have failed at trading, because his income is from books,seminars,videos and selling holiday camps to wealthy and corporate holiday makers. He does not even discuss ,or maybe does not know 10% of trading psychology.Wonder if professional trading is  about the blind leading the blind.

Are robots (programmed by people) not going to suffer the same conundrum? I liked the growing sophistication of thought processes shown in the series of cartoons that finally arrive at a headache which seemed about right to me. 


Cognitive flexibility, the ability to switch quickly is a tricky thing to reprogram in the self and probably a bit easier in the bot, that's probably all it comes down to.

Robots are disciplined, they can cut their losses, they can change their direction whilst the human brain is lost, in 50 different psychological flaws of the human mind.


Humans don't like to lose.Cut your losses ,take your losses, emotions can be controlled , according to fake Gurus .

so CASEY will close trades  prematurely , because he needs to be roight,

Wall street has realized the flaws of the human mind in trading, it makes more money from automated hft, something humans can not do.A little guy can now trade  with 50 robots, trading about 20 strategies simultaneously  through the use of EAS. Humans find it difficult to trade 1 strategy successfully, but now with IG'S low lot sizes and mt4, it is possible for little humans to succeed in an industry, where everything was promoted for the benefit of the bucket shops and bots also  overcome the psychological demons of humans in trading.The bots can win against the psychological demons, by bots avoiding them and by letting 50 bots sit patiently,until there is an opportunity to make money.The latter avoids the traps of the bucket shops, the bots will soon start winning the war with chinese  EAS.

This split personalities very evident on forums, but not on this forum,only clients are allowed here.You may get hundreds of personalities on private forums, all of them are designed to employ split personalities, to promote their agendas against the little man.


Refco's daughter had her own forum, the daughter followed the same blood of Refco, carrying out illegal activities against clients.Last year .the cftc banned  Refco's bad blood brokerage outfit from carrying out it's activities in the United States.Stooges of the 5%  were present on every forum, their job was to prevent the little man from being profitable.


The 5 % has stooges planted every where to ensure the little guys do not become profitable, the 5% will try to prevent the 95% their victims, that is how the industry is set up.


The problem will remain, but it is not in the long term interests of the honest broker.


It is virtually impossible task for the little man to design profitable robots, one has to experience and understand profitable trading The industry is the blind leading the blind.Those who failed write books,teach,coach,sell seminars,signals and generally breed the failures of tomorrow.Those who can do, those who can't teach,write books,sell  signals.coach, educate and sell maps of technical analysis..Those who can trade,trade!Those who know nought are gurus to the new failures of tomorrow.


The internet will eliminate the problem,sooner or later.Most of the failures will not be gurus for long, word gets around,they hang around internet marketing sites.

Of course the main problem with split personalities is that it may lead the person to develop multiple persona which can lead to all kinds of complications. Here for example oilfxpro is trying to explain why he is using his third login name to reply to a question addressed to his second login name before finally signing off in his first login name.


You can see how confusing this can get so why bother? Well, if you like to engage baiting and flaming I presume the pretence that there are a number of you instead of just one might make it more effective.


Some think that it is their precise punctuation and grammar trademarks that give them away but those are just the final proof, what really gives them away is the same general manner and attitude of the text.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
