Trading misinformation:Quack views on brokers and trading


Recommended Posts

Sometimes  I go to quack private trading forums and read something like this.

 

 Sun tzu applied to trading

“Maintaining the goodwill of the people is essential to win the battle.”

Applied to trading – The people of a nation will support a war if it has a clear purpose and benefit to them. Similarly, as a trader, Scalping too much and/or applying automated trading programs isn’t an acceptable behavior to the broker, which will end up with him closing your account and then with you not being able to sustain your trading activities. 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Tzu

 

Makes one wonder how much misinformation is given to traders.Brokers love a scalper who will give them 50 spreads a day , as opposed to the  trader who trades once a month.Applying automated trading programs is not an acceptable behaviour ?.If a trader has bots doing 50 trades a week , surely the broker must be happy.

 

How much misinformation is posted in the internet ,books,analysis, quack forums, seminars etc etc etc?Just imagine 20,000 trading books, there is only one road from A to B ,yet traders are bombarded with 20,000 maps, one indicator does the job yet there are over 5,000 indicators on mql4.com site.If a driver had 5,000 indicators, he would not not which direction to take, in his very simple journey.

 

Aren't traders bombarded with too much information to be successful?

Which book has map to the trading gold mine?

 

Can the book writers (people who have failed at trading ) not write 1 book, instead of 20,000 books to totally confuse the readers/new trader?

 

We go to private trading forums, to be misinformed by the regular high priests of noise, they have 50,000 threads on opinions of trading successfully, multiply that by 20 forums of misinformation. = 1,000,000 useless opinions and analysis by the high priests of noise.Does a trader really need that?

 

If all  technical analysis was reliable, one could make a robot or a series of robots, to make a profitable robot?

 

Why are they giving you hundreds of price action videos, when a stochastics indicator does the job?Why are they inventing 5,000 more indicators when the stochastics is adequate for the job?

 

Trading is very easy and very simple, but every internet guru, author and other charlatans want to sell you the holy grail, essentially the blind leading the blind, and leading new traders on the wrong paths, their paths of unproven trading.In the gold rush, the only people 

 

Get rich selling education,indicators,software,price action courses, backtesting software,signals, tools, picks and shovels for the traders..............but please don't forget to sell them t/a maps or books, when you don't know the map to the gold.

There are forum threads on other forums designed to mislead new traders ,and keep sponsors and vendors happy.After all the sponsors pay for these sites.These sponsors benefit from over trading day traders ,if day traders over trade , it does does not matter if most lose , as long as sponsors get more income from spreads.

 

Forum threads which provide misinformation

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
