Couldn't agree more, but the truth is none of them care, never have since the dawn of trading, so likely never will.
Wyckoff saw it in his time working for the bookies, he railed against it, tried tirelessly to educate, but still on it goes, guys chasing dreams. Either he or Livingstone spoke of the 'ghosts of Wall St' with rolled up charts hanging out hoping for a snippet of info.
Then a learner asks can I make 1000 pips in x time? If no one bothers to answer he'll ask a bookie.
But who'll care? maybe the Manxx's and Martins and Falstaffs and others will care.
