I've been lurking for a while, and have noticed that none of the supposed successful traders here give any detailed advice on how to trade successfully. Occasionally some people will give vague hints, but that's useless for neophytes who need more specific instructions. One has to wonder if anyone here really is successful. It's interesting to compare this site with sites that are devoted to getting women (as money and women are the 2 things that men want the most). Do a google search for "fast seduction" or "speed seduction" and you will find plenty of sites devoted to getting women. Many of these sites have extremely detailed instructions on how to get women. They tell you how to handle various situations, and even tell you exactly what words to say to a woman, and how and when you should engage in physical contact. They spell out a lot of what you need to say and do to get a woman. There are message boards too where people post about how they approached a woman and what they said and did. It's all a very supportive environment, as guys all try to help each other become more successful getting women. But then on this site, it seems like the supposed successful traders just post smug and condescending comments towards the novices. Occasionally they might say something vague and pass it off as advice, but they don't offer anything specific that would actually be helpful. No wonder so many people say this site is just for entertainment purposes, no one is willing to share their knowledge to help other people learn. If guys are willing to give specific and detailed instructions on how to pick up women, then why aren't they willing to do the same when it comes to trading? Guys probably want women a little more than they want money (and one of the reasons guys want money is because they think it will help them get women, but the opposite isn't true), so it seems like if they are willing to share their knowledge on how to pick up women, then they should also be willing to share their knowledge on trading. Is anyone here really a successful trader?
