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

    • London's house prices - EMEA brief 21 Aug
      Asian stocks generally up on hopes trade tensions may ease, with opes of a China - US trade resolution pushing up copper, often seen as a barometer for the economic outlook, dragging behind it miners such as BHP Billiton and Glencore. Venezuela have debased their currency taking off five zeros, along with increase minimum wage by 3000% in and effort to prop up their economy. Yesterday the world trade organisation confirmed that Turkey had lodged a trade dispute against the US. Gold gains as Trump's remarks weigh on the US dollar, whilst oil edges up on tighter US outlook and Iran sanctions. Finally, see what's going on with London house prices in the IGTV video featured video below.

    • Oil prices slip - EMEA brief 20 Aug
      Iran has stressed to OPEC over the weekend that no other member country should take up the slack for reduced oil exports in the face of Trump imposed US sanctions. Oil prices slip on concerns over slowing economic growth. Asia shares inch up with yuan ahead of Sino - US talks, whilst UK ministers are set to release their first ‘no deal’ Brexit documents on Thursday in an effort to prepare for a “worst possible” outcome. Persimmon results are expected tomorrow, with many in the sector looking to the release as a barometer for the wider housing sector and how a rising inflation rate will affect the market.
