    g,

    4 ticks gets you a book on how the big dogs who run 96% of all the spot cars daily on the other side of your screens think.

    your the fucking clown.
    put you head back in your ass and go stand in the corner with mikey.

    I'm 100% sure that the book is fluff. Banksters don't print their secrets in books. Not the good ones anyway.

    and you and Mikey have more in common than you think. You both talk a whole lotta shit on the internet with NO proof that you can do FUCK ALL. so you stand in a corner, you're just another troll to me.

    g,

    trading forums always denegrate to a bush league level.

    a 1000 post forum drone yaps but says nothing of substance.

    In finance, if you are ignorant, it is much better to be an ignorant skeptic than someone who is ignorant and gullible.

    The ignorant and gullible are out there in another education / chat room /webinar service getting sheared with the rest of the sheeple.

    Forum threads that are dead are replaced by new ones with exactly the same kind of drivel, so bringing old wine in a new bag is always the current modus operandi.

    If you can't make money with a $1,000 trading account...demo or other wise...... then it won't make a bit of difference if you have a 10,000 or 100,000 or a 1,000,000 -- you just suck at trading, and need to do something else.

    when you run cars as a pro and have a solid edge you get top drawer results.

    i am done here.

    Look, I get your perspective. You know what you're doing and you make a lot of money. But that's not really useful to me.

    And if you think it gives you some kind of authority to say "go stand in a corner" then go fuck yourself, you're going to get a response from me.

    Thee book is not crap, it's worth a read, if you want to learn a little then here are some of it's pages by permission of the publisher.

    He is covering all of the market, not just tiny segments, includes correlation, fundamentals, etc etc also he still trades GFC I think is the name of the prop firm, something like that anyways, one of the fewer that offer performance costs only - no performance and they don't get paid.

    Thanks shop, I was looking for some holiday reading. This will fit perfectly.

    It's like any material; go through it, take away the parts that work for you.

    More like sharing a link, then you bashed it. Even when you are stating that he knows what hes doing. And that would also kinda might imply that he knows what hes talking about. So he gives you stuff to study,and thats not useful to you. Interesting perspective. Ignorance is bliss. Being an overleveraging dumb fuck who gets lucky here and there isn't.

    In my view, a person writing a trading book is not doing so to share knowledge. In fact, I would say he authored that book to form a barrier between the gullible outsiders and his insider friends, who are still active in the game, and would probably not want their dealings being made public in a book just cause Brad Gilbert decided to make some money on the side.

    Yup, he prolly needs like 10k for his allowance.
    How many trading books have you read? The 10k hrs of mental mikeys yapping you watched doesn't count. Personally i've read enough and a lot of good stuff is out there. Your job is to take away from it whats good,and make it work for you. Forming an opinion with no solid base on reality except some jackass conspiracy theories is pure stupidity.

    In a few years, I would hope to have the energy to write a rather long essay on what making Money in trading starts to do to the psyche, since the actual physical expenditure of "direct action" energy in computer-based trading is less than writing a Facebook status update. Yet the consequences of being a successful trader is life altering. The disconnect, and its effect, are fascinating.

    It's sort of like moving to some place with really cold winters. You end up having to either: like it, tolerate it, hate it & move away or have a psychotic episode.

    I say all that because I know enough about most of the participants on this forum to understand how sad some of the arguments end up being. You really have guys making good money in spats with guys making great money, in further spats with a guy that makes millions. I'd say it's really sad, but some years ago I made the mistake of reading a Ferrari owners forum. Now, that was utterly sad. (But, trust me, there are sadder places on the Internet no sane person should go.) And we're going around in these circles again because ICT's boredom and ADD got the better of him.

    I'm not going to sit here and defend ICT tanking the account. Rather than the CAD trade, it was the EUR-AUD trade that tipped me off he wasn't going to be too serious about actually running this account through to completion right now. I really wish he would just do it, as it makes all of this generated discussion a firestorm for no real reason. (It also doesn't help that he took down the YouTube video where he showed he recovered the 2013 account. It was up there for a rather long time, though regularly ignored when the topic came up.) Not that anything anyone could say would change everyone flaming him for it.

    As to the topic of ICT's understanding of the market, you either can see the experience and see something of value to learn from it or you don't. It's the same with shopster's work: either you know how to sort through someone's personality & presentation or you don't. Everyone accepts that the market is highly manipulated, so the way you make a career is finding a way to get on the train because you ain't doing jack to move a market yourself. (And if you do figure out a way to force the market to move your way, you'll end up arrested for it, more than likely.) But ICT's method relies very heavily upon strong Visual-Spatial recognition, so if that isn't one of your strong points, it probably does look like gibberish. Frankly, even trading it, it takes a long while for it to not seem like you're performing some black magic.

    But ICT's methodology doesn't take away from the way others process the market. If you think ICT's full of it, look through the stuff shopster has posted here and other places. He understands the "game" and plays it very well. Though his most brilliant bit is probably the discussion of his exit system. Learn from those with decades of experience when you get the chance, there's normally deep insight to be gleaned. Especially in something as hard as trading.

    Now, this being a trading forum, it always comes back to "well, how are you trading it?". Personally, I did the work with ICT's teaching and I figured out what I needed to know. It was the end of February when it "clicked". I was promptly rewarded for all of the work with a severe physical ailment, so I ended the year flat because I haven't been able to trade for most of the past 9 months. Trading is very difficult when you can't process what's on the screen. This is also why I've been much quieter on the forums for a while. But this was a temporary ailment, so I should be back to full time trading by February at the latest.

    And since I'm on my self-imposed 2 week Holiday Vacation (which is actually written in my trading plan), I wish you all a Merry Christmas. Enjoy your gains for the year and bless someone else this holiday season.
