In 8 years of being here I've only seen 2 people give evidence of winning big BEFORE The fact...
So that's a no.
Speaking for myself, since I was mentioned, I trade FX as a hobby with accounts that are re-seeded with 10,000 real dollars.
Everything that I recommend is that which I do & every "idea that I trade by" is that which is actually in use; unless I specifically say that something is an idea that I am exploring, P&F for instance.
I do not allow my trades to be studied because:
1) I don't want to spend my time answering "why did you" questions.
2) I do not accept payments, donations, subscriptions, or refer products for cash; in other words, I owe nothing to anyone.
3) It is irrelevant because you cannot do what I do, you can only do what you can do.
Some people feel that if I can do such and such with x amount of dollars that I should trade xxx amount of dollars & I don't want to answer those questions either. I trade what I want, when I want, for the amount I want; hence it is a "hobby" because, like v8power, I am not really motived by money (I am the sole heir to my parents fortune) but I have a gift for trading and a desire to share.
I don't care who I disappoint, that is the truth.
