You have a bad tendancy to try to avoid scrutiny by posting this kind of garbage when challenged. This is exacty the kind of behaviour a CON MAN exhibits. You may think that recommending shorting the SPY many times since August was good advice, but it was clearly terrible. You since claimed that these terrible ideas you post are not actual trades, in which case the obvious question is why do you insist on peppering trading forums with ideas that you CLEARLY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO TRADE FOR PROFIT. Buddy, take responsibility for your actions, stop trying to blame others for your awful advice. Are you a man or a child ? I suspect the latter.
