Jalarupa is here to break something

Postby Jalarupa » Tue Feb 23, 2010 6:30 pm

Hello,

Well seeing as there is no official welcome template of Q&A on this forum. I want to go ahead and just introduce myself to all yeh peeps.

I have been searching for new opportunities to live my life instead of the humdrum of work all day, only see my loved ones for a few hours at nite and then go back to work where my boss tells me that they have re-structured the remuneration model and in fact they over paid me and will be taking money from me until my debt is met... Well if there were any doubt, I work for the bank, and it comes as no surprise, but banks put even their employees into debt, to keep them as slaves...

It is this modern day slavery that I seek to escape from, and i am sure many of you here have been where I am and have left that world behind for something a lot more free. That is what Forex trading has the potential of being I guess... At least I have seen some great 'profits' off a demo account and are slowly but surely coming to know the cycles of the markets and the times when the moves are good and bad, and what indicators work and what indicators don't work so well in a strategy.

Lets just say I've been working with a lot of indicators on the MT4 platform and there is a lot of noise to get through, which is why I found myself to your really large community.

To tell you the truth I was directed here by TRO's blog in my quest to try and understand the inner workings for the TRO mid indicator, and low and behold I find a community where no one wants me to deposit $250 every month to gain access to the *Special Members Lounge*. I take my hat off to all of you who administer and manage the free flow of information in a very open way! I am so glad to be here. :D

I hope that I may be able to take some of your experience in your years of trading and apply it to my very finite understandings of the markets and maybe one day I'll be able to develop a trading method that gives a positive return over time without busting. But I'm sure these things take time. But so does being a slave to the wage... That takes time away from you, so I am using my slave time to educate myself on technical analysis and practice Elliot Wave patterns and try and develop some sort of edge,

I thank you for reading through my introduction and I look forward to getting to know you all and hopefully become a valid contributor to this site in some shape way or form.

Peace Jalarupa

Your success may come fast, but more than likely a bit slower. It will come soon though. We are all here to help each other.

jal,

welcome. theres nothing new about the slavery you are part of, it has been around for thousands of years, and has hundreds of names: Serf, tenant, slave, indentured servant and most recently employee and contract labourer.

Slavery has been very narrowly defined in recent years as "chattel slavery", where one man owns a title deed to another man. The real definition of slavery is "One man owning another mans LABOUR". My favourite quote (and a driving point for me to learn to trade) comes from one of Adam Smiths disciples "The man who sells only his labour is a slave and while we admire what he produces, we despise what he is".

I learnt to trade profitably from information gathered from this site, and bought my life back from the company I had sold it to. It was a depressingly cheap purchase :)

Cheers
G

patch,
I purchased my freedom on 18/12/09, and thank you for the congrats. I did it, others here have done it too, im sure, and you'll do it too.

I was probably a bit premature about it, but yes I am FREE, I am just not yet RICH.

Nice intro Jalurupa. Krelik is a very good place to learn and some very good people here to help. There are a lot of people here who have learned and become successful. Good luck and keep at it.

Congratulations bredin. I know what you mean by freedom. I am not there yet, but the potential is getting better all the time as I continue to learn.

Patch - I sent you an email on your gmail account.

Welcome,

This Forum as saved me many hours of common mistakes that many traders make. It amazes me how many steps of the TRO 35 steps to trading list I have gone through. It speaks the truth. I can say I am in the 30's on the list now. There are many trading mentors on this forum that support and graciously show nebees there secrets to sucess. Just over a year now and I feel like Im really beginning to "see it" Live with a micro account. Again welcome, I dont post charts because I dont know how but will help in any way I can to return the favor. Special thanks to TRO, Dragon, monolisa.

Wow, the bank reduced their staff salaries and then back dated it!

And I thought Oz banks where as good as it gets in screwing staff and customers. There certainly is no balance any more between the welfare of their staff, customers and shareholders.

If only Chief Executive Officers remuneration packages could be based on staff and customer satisfaction, instead of the stock price. I bet we wouldn't even have a G.F.C.
Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO

Welcome Jal, You'll like it here :)

Bredin: Well done!
