I do understand your view point, and especially during the first few weeks after stumbling across ICTs threads I would have hoped to see some Live results to strengthen my hopes and to fuel up my eagerness to dive into ICTs material even more than it already had at that point…
While I am still a newbie and still have a lifetime of learning ahead of me… I do not really see the point in sharing information about live accounts anymore… Maybe I just don’t fully understand the purpose of myfxbook… but at the end of the day I am trading for myself and my family, and I frankly have a hard time understanding why someone would give a rats a$$ about my account size?
I am happy to share my performance expressed by a percentage of return… But I would feel incredibly uneasy about publishing regular updates of my funds - just like I wouldn’t want to publish any information about my funds on any bank accounts…Especially not in a public online forum;)
While I only started trading Live a month ago on a small amount (low 4 figures) and I am planning to increase funds to my originally planned account size, once my performance shows me that I am ready to do so… and I am hence, maybe ignorant about many aspects of trading and this community, I do believe that it should be more interesting to see the performance based on %.
If there is a way of publishing myfxbook without revealing the account size, I’d might considering setting one up after all… so if thats the case and for some strange reason anyone would care to double check my monthly performance shared on this thread, then let me know;)
Personally I am way too busy improving my own trading and in the spare time I luckily still have a life, So researching other people’s accounts are not really that high on my priority list;) BUT I do really enjoy seeing everybody on this thread doing well, and to read about members achieving double digit percent returns, makes me always extremely proud to be a part of this community, and I am sure ICT is delighted to see each and every one of us succeed - But I doubt if he cares much about if we are trading with a 50$ account or a 500k$account… I could be wrong
Maybe I misunderstood your post, I am sorry if that is the case mate!
Obviously many people are probably only sharing their good trades, or are simply lying or exaggerating… But I wouldn’t bother too much. After all you are trading for yourself.
I do assume that by trading your account up into bigger dimensions (from 3 figures to 7 figures or so) our psychology should have enough time to adopt (I hope…) to lose 500k in one trade would probably lead me to the next bridge to jump from, in my current state of mind… but luckily I still have time to adopt until I get to that level;)
I wish everyone a good start into the new week and
