You STILL don't really understand what has happened to you. I'm sure you lost money... In spite of your denial... let's say $5,000... Which is precisely what was supposed to happen. The Sell Side of the securities industry... Is a brilliantly conceived and executed "mook skinner"... Designed to transfer money from the pockets of greedy, but semi-sophisticated, marks... To the securities industry... Which is then split up by your broker and exchanges... The guys who wrote the books you bought... The guys who sold you the software... The guys who put up your favorite trading web sites. All these Sell Side operators split your money... And there's millions more like you. And here you are babbling on about "candlesticks" and "reversals". 90% of what you know is lies spoon fed to you by the Sell Side... And unless you come to terms with this... you are doomed as a trader. People who are sugar-coating your experience... are not helping you.
