Are you looking for trade signals?

Recommended Posts

An old tinker once gave me some good advice, “Always take a thief over a liar, with a thief you know where you stand, with a liar you never know anything”.


Perhaps the title should be ‘should you take trade signals from a forum?’ After all there are plenty of professional trade signals firms with good reputations and published track records, IG offers two such for free.


Where are you more likely to find a coin flipping gambler? On a forum or in a professional firm. The coin flippers are easy to spot, they shout ‘I won 100’ then mutter, sure I lost some, I lost a bit. The winners are stated precisely while the losers are never really quantified, easier to push them to the back of the brain and forget them then, after all it’s the winning that counts isn’t it.


You may find posters on a forum who have more experience than others who may offer advice and discussion that you can take or leave but if you are looking for signals look elsewhere, if they are of a professional standard they wont be on here (except for our good friends from PIA-FIRST of course).

Traders should be wary of signals and analysis on forums, especially those provided on a broker's forum.Some of these signals can be good ,others can be poor.The truly professional trader is not going to give signals, he will be making money and wasting his time.

This forum is going to the pitts  with signals like these.

Plenty of examples can be found on forums, where traders lose money due to the opinions of others .This is why Casey has been challenged to post  to trades in advance, he is reluctant to do so , because most of his analysis fails.




Most traders would not have the confidence to use the signals of others.

Somewhat deceitful to leave out the second part of my call that went on a 240 pip run don't you think? So the false break out the top lost a few, so what. I knew the range was important and said so, and so a break either up or down was also going to be important and it was.


Plenty of examples of people losing money due to others, that's true, but what about all those famous forum legends who make the right calls all the time, who are they now, ... Oh wait, there aren't any. Sure you get some high risk gamblers who make lots quick but always end up giving it all back when the market changes as it always will.


Loud boastful coin flippers like yourself can only show snippets of results to back their claims because the results over a long period of time would explain why they still have a piddling account after 10 years of trying.

I can only repeat my view about this community. It is NOT a trade calling service, if people want my calls I will give you my PayPal a/c details and you can send me your subscription payments -  HaHa  . This is just a site for ideas, thoughts , identifying problems and problem solutions and such like. PLEASE keep it friendly

I found coin flipping only works about 50% of the time, same as you. So I prefer to watch the charts, get a feel for the rhythm and then take opportunities as they present themselves. Take a look at the dax chart for instance, price is at a key juncture and is as yet undecided.

The weekend gap got filled but the 12742 is a key confluence level, who ever takes control of that (bulls or bears) will set the pace for the next few days.

As opposed to your daily morning coin flip I have to wait for a set up to materialise on the chart before any entry, that's how most people trade. I appreciate that you have tried this and failed and that is why you went in search of a holy grail 'system' that has lead you to the coin flipping technique. Now you are desperate to convince anyone who is naive enough to listen (including yourself) it actually works. Providing a continuous record over a reasonable period of time is the usual way but of course you can't do that because, a)  you keep changing it every week and b) you know what the results would be. Which is why you keep changing it every week.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
