There are some really nasty reviews of this guys teaching and methods when you do a google search.

I did that just after you posted his name.

It's my assumption that the losers blame their OWN inadequacies on him.
Hey, just because THEY don't understand a simple 123 market turning point isn't his fault.

you left about the time I started KR....hope your gonna stick around and teach your magic of the small time frames? If not, still good to see ya back! Read your thread many times, yet still feel like im missing one little thing. :D


Nah, i do not have anything else to show.

There isn't anything else that i can say or show that would make any difference for anyone. I may from time to time offer some analysis on other's charts that are posted but that is about it.

It is all screentime. It may take one person 100 hrs to get it, and it may take another person 10k hrs. Another person may never get it at all.

After that, you may pick up on smaller things here and there and have a better feel for it all.

I guess i will add this to all of that.

You just have to FEEL the other traders and what they are doing, and why they are doing it. Put yourself in their shoes based on what they just did. Watch where they get trapped and ZL'ed.

Then trade them and not the actual chart as a chart, but as an emotional map of the market.

You obviously see it, as well as a few others i have seen post over the last few months. Now it is just becomes, the more time spent with the charts and other things will become apparent that you didn't realize before.

Not trying to sound cryptic or anything, it really is just an understanding of other traders and what, where, when and why they are doing it.


And

Indicators are horseshit.

I am not sure what PRO is about to SHOW on his thread, but i would advise everyone to disregard all of it, and just focus on price and other trader's emotions.
Bend over and assume the position for another 4 years of hope and change.

Target top of the 4hr combined and then look for rat trade off top, alarms on meta trader set near that level.1.29400

WOW! Im surprised this forum still has a lot of the old regulars still posting. Its been what, like 3 years.

I'm just glad the markets are back in full swing, I hate trading in the Summer especially August where there is low liquidity and chop.

Yes and no...

I also run my own business.

But my type of trading is different from what you guys do around here. I dont trade ZL, MOMO, or indicators you guys use. All I use is pretty much support and resistance. But I don't trade forex only, I think less than half all my trades are based on currencies. I do mostly commodities and indicies trading because to tell you the truth, I find those easier to trade.

Trading is very boring for me. Pretty much its all about waiting. In a 10 hour day, I might only take 5-6 trades. Sometimes even less. And they are pretty much all scalps. Its just something that works for me.
