I think I know: it's because you cannot do much of this simple stuff in backtesting by just looking at a static completed chart. You have to replay the candles tick by tick or just forward test on live data. When you say "trade in the direction of the 1H candle over a horizontal line" most people then look at a static historic chart and see all of the "whipsaws" over various lines and say "impossible". But in real time, with common sense, it's a whole new story. I think this is the problem for most people.

I think the real problem is that TRO is a Doer and not a Teacher. As if he was a Teacher he would be teaching some one else's method or inventing one and charging $5,000 for each seat.
I think he is like myself, a simple Doer, that does and to teach is difficult as there are too much know how sometimes.
And also, most times you just need to cut your losses short and cut your winner from becoming losers. Everyone is greedy and wait too long sometimes.
For all methods, I think there must be some one that can put all together and make a ebook or something. I try to read as much as I can, but have another life(s); forex trading, street trading, net trading, and still have small time to read all the forum material.
Whish it was easy to read and put to practice, as you most know I lost 70% of my account, and trying to get back at live trading after 4 months, not easy.
