I sure can't say that.
Did you see indisputable evidence that he actually "made $40,000 in one trade this week"? Or did he simply tell people that he did that?
In 8 years of being here I've only seen 2 people give evidence of winning big BEFORE The fact.
And with results verifiable by my own eyes.
(no historical markups)
espip and Dragon33
Ajaymen and v8power get an honorable mention but who knows what trades were taken in between those actually shown.
Now, I'd like to add M.O. into this but when he posts a trade call I don't realize it is one.
Then after he posts the result I don't know what happened or where the trade started or finished. LMAO
His artwork and ideas are beyond any that I have seen on any site.
Outa this world.
No one else has been willing to share as far as I know.
dchappy posts trade examples after the fact BUT there is only one possible outcome if you used his entry criterion, tp, and SL that he described in the examples shown.
And that is success.
He also only trades a few months a year and does not have a job so that too is success.
Yes, that's what I thought. It wasn't verified.
That's the way it is on this board and most. Many people talk about ALLEGED big wins AFTER THE FACT. They mark up charts AFTER THE FACT. Only a very small percentage, maybe 1-2%, actually tell you before they get into trades what they are actually doing, where it can actually be verified That's because most of the big talkers out there are actually BIG LOSERS.
That's why everybody needs to take anything anybody says on all boards, including this one, with great skeptiscim, unless they are making trade calls in advance.
While I've been on this board for years, the only trader I saw that showed actual results was dragon33. And the only trader that I saw that posted multiple calls in advance of actual trades was RicG. You mentioned espip........I didn't happen to see those, but kudos to him, if he did. And then there was the very short lived 100 pip challenge that TRO started. But have you noticed, hardly any of the so-called "great traders" on this board even attempted to make calls in advance on that????? Makes you wonder doesn't it. At least it should make everybody wonder and question who really is a good trader here.
It always amazes me how people think that some poster on a board is a great trader/mentor/guru when they have no evidence that the poster is actually a great trader. Those "gurus" only post theory that is not testable, verifyable, repeatable and NEVER call multiple trades in advance over an extended period of time. Why, because they have no clue how to trade. Those "gurus" are usually someone with an ego problem....they need ego stroking to feel good abou themselves............sad, really. People think that the alleged "great trader/mentor/guru" is such, only because that poster appears to be "smart", or have some "new angle" or some "new approach", when in reality there is nothing new in trading. When price is going up, you go long. When price is going down, you go short. Use proper money management and risk/reward. DUH?
Having read your posts, I know that you follow Rob Booker. He is a MASTER MARKETING GUY. He might make some money trading, I don't know. But I would bet that even if he does, he makes WAY MORE marketing his indicators/rooms/systems/email services and others than he does trading. He also sends out constant emails for OTHER TRADING SERVICES. In what other industry does a "competitor" send out marketing materials for their completitor? Does Coke promote Pepsi? Does CBS promote NBC? Heck no. So why is Booker promoting all of these other trading gurus/services/etc. Because he probably makes WAY more money doing that, than he actually does trading.
