Hi Guys (Newbies) PAY ATTENTION... ok this is for your benefit.
When you arrive at this site, you are greeted with that INTRODUCE YOURSELF section
it then makes logical sense to have a section on SAYING GOODBYE doesn't it
WELL... THIS IS THAT SECTION.
Now... I'm not actually leaving as yet. but I CAN TELL YOU IT IS REALLY GETTING CLOSE TO THE POINT OF ME NOT CARING ANY MORE
Now. i thought it might be constructive and useful FOR ALL YOU NEWBIES TO UNDERSTAND A FEW THINGS
People like these guys (and this is not a complete list) ARE TRYING TO HELP YOU... ok
some of these guys can come across as arrogant and rude (you need to understand, they don't mean anything malicious)
let me give you guys some advice - since you newbies are new and I UNDERSTAND YOU.
DO YOU WANT TO LEARN TO TRADE ...... OR NOT ?
or do you prefer to want to be treated ever so politely .... Seriously
Treating someone respectfully is one thing and i'm all for it, but a time comes when everyone needs a kick up the bum so that you get put on the right path.
we are not going to spoon feed you guys
we EXPECT THAT YOU PUT IN EFFORT
and if we see that effort WE WILL HELP YOU when you get stuck
Here is a list of stupid questions that you should not ask
"What is a Pip"
"What is a good broker"
"which strategy is the best"
"is E-Toro a good broker"
now.. NEWBIES WILL SAY THE FOLLOWING :
But Martin.... What... what.... what's wrong with that ?
well LET ME EXPLAIN
HERE ARE YOU INSTRUCTIONS WHEN YOU GET HERE
Step 1. Learn to use that SEARCH BAR at the top of the page
Step 2. Switch your Brain on (for those of you that ask stupid questions), think before asking, don't be lazy
Step 3. GO TO BABYPIPS SCHOOL AND FINISH IT
@ria_rose did, several times.. so why can't all of you what's your excuse ?
if you ask, what's a pip, it means you didn't even bother to read the first section of the school course, so WHY SHOULD WE BOTHER HELPING YOU
not to be arrogant, but
we don't need your help, YOU NEED OURS
and if the experienced traders leave , this site will be left with nothing but.. NEWBIES SHARING IDEAS WITH NEWBIES
now.. if that happens
YOU ARE ALL FIRETRUCKED....
wanna know why ?
Because YOU ALL KNOW NOTHING ABOUT TRADING, it will be the blind leading the blind (good luck to you all if that happens)
as for what broker to use (DO RESEARCH... SEARCH THE SEARCH BAR)
ANSWER : the one that you think up that works for you and that you tested
NOW DON'T ASK AGAIN... OK
Now let me get to the point here
I have a lot of patience ok
but of late, i have answered the most basic of questions and put up with it ,
i have been flagged several times FOR BASICALLY NOTHING
GUYS.. IT'S NOT WORTH BEING HERE OK
some of you are lazy as buggery
others are special little snowflakes that are more concerned about being spoken to politely than making money
Now.. i'm not saying Rudeness is ok
WHAT I AM SAYING IS............SHOW UNDERSTANDING
- This is a text based forum..
- we all come from different parts of the world
- we are all different personalities
MEANING.. THERE WILL BE MISUNDERSTANDINGS, you need to deal with it ... ok
Stop whinging all the time
Me and @_bob , upon my arrival to this site had the biggest (you get the idea) ok
Now... if me and bob worked it out , Holy crap guys... i'm sure you can as well... ok
Now.... AS FOR MODERATORS
I RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE
He's a good guy, he's understanding and helpful
jess can misunderstand you at times, but jess is still helpful and she has good intentions
now.. i'm in the process of discussing with moderators why i was flagged the last few times for things that would usually be considered normal conversation
and seriously newbies
I've been trading for 7 years
and even though this probably sounds like UTTER BS (trust me i have no reason to lie here, i'm close to leaving anyway)
fact is... i trade successfully and am financially free from trading forex
MEANING.. i'm not a professional trader unlike some of our institutional guys, but i can indeed help you guys and give you guys advice to get to where i go to
BUT, I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT IF IT'S NOT WORTH IT FOR ME
and i'm not going to put up with people who are hyper sensitive and flag others for the stupidest reasons...ok
like i said (in the nicest way possible)
I don't need to help you guys
i don't have to care
i can let you all lose your money to the industry AND YOU WILL and i don't have to care
I'm fine... YOU'RE NOT
it would be in your best interests as newbies to not irritate the experts among you
now, i can also understand that the institutional traders have put up with a GREAT DEAL of stupid crap from people over the years and given at their age, age takes a toll and we become more irritable
UNDERSTANDING IS THE KEY TO ALL THIS
so i ask you again
DO YOU WANT TO MAKE MONEY OR NOT
DO YOU WANT TO LEARN TO TRADE OR NOT
if so.... SHOW UNDERSTANDING
PUT IN EFFORT
STOP BEING LAZY
THINK BEFORE YOU ASK SILLY QUESTIONS
AND at the very least, show that you have done research
i mean , even if you ask "what is a pip"
show that you have gone to the babypips school and you didn't understand it
show that you have googled this and you still didn't understand it
at least that shows effort
My god guys.... Seriously
if i keep getting flagged for stupid crap
i'm leaving... simple as that
my purpose for being here was to help other, to help newbies that don't know how to trade.
I WILL ONLY DO THIS IF IT'S REWARDING FOR ME IN SOME WAY
and i like to help people thats my personal reward
but , i don't like to be flagged for nothing
that's not rewarding
THE PUNISHMENT IS EXCEEDING THE REWARD
if i leave.. you guys lose
if all the experts leave, ALL THE NEWBIES LOSE
you guys decide what you want to do
and i'm going to think about whether i still want to be here.. ok
I'm going to invite the expert traders among us to comment on this... i'm sure they all have similar feelings
SO REMEMBER............ THEY ARE TRYING TO HELP... OK
think about it
have a nice day
