Why are traders so reluctant to give out their system? I know the initial reaction, but just consider this entire post before you flip your wig. To me it seems that the there are as many systems out there as stars in the sky, but from what I'm gathering by reading posts on the site is that finding a profitable trader is like finding a diamond in the rough. It all seems to boil down to psychology & discipline. Now, I'm not really asking what your trading system is. Because it seems like many here would correlate that to "what's your social security # & DOB?", but what I'm looking to understand is this. Hypothetically speaking, if you give the imaginary top trading system to 100 traders (who are trading in the same market at the same time with the same amount of capital in a very liquid market) & said, "here, this system has an edge, just follow the rules." How many would be successful? In other words, how many people actually have what it takes to actually follow the system to make it profitable?
