At this point I should just ignore you.
You have every right to do so!
Even your name says ForexUnlimited and here you go on screaming limits to what is possible or not in Forex. If you don't want to believe the guy, you take a walk. Who cares what you need proof to believe.
That name was associated with a web site I ran back in 2012, which no longer exists due to a vast shift in my way of thinking about trading over the last 5 years.
"Don't want to believe the guy" - of course I don't believe him!
"Proof to believe" - of course you need to back up any claim you make about trading to be trusted, with proof.
The first day you heard about the profit potential that Forex offers, be honest to yourself, did you believe it? Did you not think it was too good to be true?
Forex/options/futures/equities/bonds/horse racing -- they all offer profit potential. Only problem is actually finding someone with a verified track record to show you 1, 2, 3 year consistent returns and < 10% drawdown.
You asked a question, you got the answer . If you "knew" it was possible, why waste our time asking impossible questions? Please drop the issue and start a new thread on something you believe is probable. Most people here are still grappling with learning the ins and outs of Forex and you're gonna intimidate and discombobulate them and call them "plain stupid " because they don't have a retirement portfolio as if you had one the very first day you started trading.
This is where you're 100% wrong. People would be wise to understand from the jump what is realistic and what is not. Before you even look at your first price chart, you need to have your finances in order or you're simply not taking this seriously and will likely never earn a consistent return.
What are the 'ins and outs' to learn? The fact that the entire industry is designed for the average retailer to lose money? I mean wake up and smell the roses man-- 99% of people on this site will never be able to beat the S&P and will spend countless hours and emotions pouring over price charts and over-leveraged positions trying to figure out where they went wrong.
You claim you're trying to help. Go back and read your posts, you sound too arrogant to be helpful and nobody would probably listen to you no matter how useful your "help" is.
It's not just arrogance, there's actually some anger in there too. Every single forum, every single day you see a new trader trying to make money with pinbar off a support level...this just eats away at me and physically causes distress b/c I see that, and just equate it to a little sheep chained against a pole with a pack of hungry wolves circling.
Yes, there are some strategies out there that will "work"- but over time, the wheels always come off. 95% of people on this forum would be better off letting an actual professional manage (via mutual funds) their money.
Here's how you become wealthy-
1. Stop trading.
2. Close your silly FX brokerage account and pay off all debts!
3. Save 1-3 paychecks as an emergency fund
4. Continue to contribute to (or open a new) IRA
5. Buy no fee/no load mutual funds monthly (diversification and auto-investing is key)
6. Build up a nice portfolio for 1-3 years
After 1-3 years, you should have a decent little account to start really getting into 'blue-chip' mutual funds.
Wealth is not built overnight, or in 3 months or 12. It's built over years and years of dedication and baby steps.
