Thank you for the encouragement @eddieb
It is hard work being a dinosaur in today’s social media style of one-line comment!
But the real question is: is it even worth it! I see a lot of hyper-excitement and motivation from absolute Newbies and a fair amount of macho comment from those craving personal hero worship as big swingers - but I don’t see the sytematic, progressive grass-roots study here at all much any more.
I remember when some of the older veterans here described the life as a trader as being boring and that most of the time as a trader is spent without any trades open. I still fully agree with that description! But I get the impression that the modern approach is to treat trading more like a PS4 game.
So there is a growing gulf between my conception of trading as an oldie and that of the modern Newcomer, and a resultant mismatch in our communication as a result - but, interestingly, it seems to me that the failure rate for Newbies is as high as its always been - is there perhaps something to be learnt there? Maybe, maybe not! Either way, I have learnt to try and keep my mouth shut here on BP!
