This is why so many of the old guys quit this site.
Can't easily beat QQQ when it's on steroids
If you only "trade" one direction - up.
@longandshort thank you for tipping me over from being a long time lurker to finally joining ET. You have compiled a remarkable resource for both newbies and experienced traders / investors. Cheers.

Yup bitching that's what causes some to leave.
Asking a pertinent question ... no.
Dude obviously spent a lot of time and effort to help other people here by sharing a lifetime of accumulated knowledge. Explain to me why in the f you would feel compelled to vocalize your opinion as it applies to YOU? If that's how you "judge the world", so be it; but why rain on someone else with your (bitter) negativity? Where does that get you? Honest question, because as far as I know, no one ever wrote a book about the power of negative thinking. For such an Elon fan-boy... pfff... I don't think you'd go far at TSLA living in a world of half-full glasses.
chill out, I’m not trying to be an a hole
I take trading to be about money. If others do not, so be it.
I don’t see the negativity. I see it as proper focus.
it is not how I judge the world, it is how I judge the trading world
what I seek to discern is good advice. Is there a better metric to judge traders than money?
where has it gotten me? I’m happy with where I am at.
Are all lifetimes of accumulated knowledge worth listening to? If not, how should one judge?
I take the op at his word, he wants to help and elevate the discussion.
I have to agree;
What I've seen so far, is what I assume is taught to all the professional mutual and hedge fund managers. Their record against the indexes is not what you would consider stellar.
If you want different results than the crowd you have to do different than the crowd.
Or as Yogi put it; "In theory, theory and practice are the same, in practice they ain't"
