    If you htink thta the market is "rigged against your stratagy, (support resistence levels, etc) Why not try a different stratagy? They won't keep changing to "take out" you. Maybe the strat is bad.

    Is the resaurant industry riggerd against new resaurants? 90% of them fail too.

    I trade rather large size in teh futures and I'm pretty sure that no one cares. Just like I don't care what "retail" people have on.

    A person having this issue needs to reevaluate position sizing and stop level.

  8. What in the world is the point of this thread? All it does is state the obvious. You must become a better trader. Duh

    Whether you define defeat as wipeout or just less than exemplary returns, it is still you, the trader that can defeat you. The market cannot.
