    actually it would cause you would follow the masses and you would make profit
  3. I think being overly analytical is a handicap in trading.

    Yeah, I just wish I knew what the denominator stood for in Intelligence Quotient. Then, by making it bigger and therefore lowering our IQ, we could be some kick ass traders.

    Alas, I don't know what the quotient is :(

  5. Works great :D
  6. Its so easy a caveman could do it.
  7. Trading is one thing, investing is another. Buying the indexes in this environment is is different.

    stock_turder seems to do decide my answer! :D
  8. It certainly has helped me...

    Although I am not yet a complete idiot but hope to get there someday.

  9. I am going to test that experimentally. Now in the process of opening a trading account and throwing all me life's savings ($2000) on it.
  10. Empirical evidence from ET posts suggests that, yes, being a complete idiot helps. For reference, examine any post by Wayne Gibbous...
