maybe you should let him know by posting this on his thread. dunno if he reads this thread.

i find his postings very opaque, almost deliberately lacking in clear and consice instructions that confuse more than clarify. sorry huskin, its cos im stupid and a beginner, what with this being an education forum
, could you read what you write and ask , "would someone with far less understanding and experience than myself have issues accessing what i have written"

sive, guys, everybody (aliens from outer space included if you read this) i need some advice.

imagine the following: let's say you have discovered the so-called 'holy grail' of trading. what do you think would happen if you revealed it to the whole world? i mean, let's imagine that once the info is public, everyone starts trading accordingly (by everyone i mean at least the vast majority responsible for most of the volume). what would happen to market behavior? would the market flatline? or volatility considerably drop rendering the system useless?

right. actually i'm willing to bet that 3084 will be the max this week. also, 3020 is the first TP for the initial pullback. however, don't have a confirmed signal for that yet, real close though but not yet confirmed.

*** sorry: confirmed on M5 and M15 not on H1.
I take it Triantus that you went short? Around 1.3060? Thanks

I think it depends on how many traders use the system. If relatively few - nothing will change. If a lot (relatively a lot) - it'll become more profitable. If all and sundry - it'll become useless as market makers will come up with something to move markets in a different way. I actually become more and more convinced that market are manipulated big time. (Wont elaborate on this, but I think should be obvious if you have been watching the markets long enough).

actually not. i was getting bored so i decided to swing by and check out what was cooking, which made me look at the e/u chart and try to figure out what was what. haven't traded the e/u in a while now. and i never thought i'd say this, but i started to try to apply my revamped system to the devil's currency as well--that would be cable--that's what jamie at forexlive calls it. it's so true. cable's behavior is just so nuts so i wanted to see if my new setup also works on g/u. the results are good but that damn currency is so erratic on short TFs some tweaking is needed.

I take it Triantus that you went short? Around 1.3060? Thanks

good god! i sure miss the days when after a nice move price would swing back the other way in short order as people would close their trades en masse. nowadays it goes up or down and then just stays there at the new level for hours on end. so annoying.

reminds me.. i read 2 days ago that in september forex volumes dropped by 39%!! amazing, isn't it?

I would think that if it actually worked then its increased use would change the markets until it stopped working.

If you have such a thing I'm willing to test what happens when two people use it :)

All the best
