Decade after decade, the figure remains today as 70% of traders lose. Within every financial instrument, the market price screams loudly, here please take the profits. And much is to gain from shortest term traders to day trades, weekly and long term. Are 70% losers led by crooks with promises of big profits and expertise, are trading systems running 24 hours failures, are old trade methods failures, are traders ready to become traders.

Please see my old friend John Hill at Futures Truth magazine and all will note John has been at the forefront of testing trading systems or algo systems as they are called today, since the early 1980’s. The amount of failure systems in 40 years is astounding.

Very few systems make it and are recommended for trade and sale. Today, the amount of hedge funds using trading systems is more astounding and explains 50% winners to losers.

Crooks in markets with promises of big profits always existed in markets and won’t ever change in the future. John Hill has 40 years of stories and 40 years of court battles to stop the dishonest.

The Journal of Technical Analysis first introduced charts and chart pattens with Ichimoku in 1997, John McGinley’s Dynamic 1998, Robert Prector’s Fibonacci numbers in the 1970’s and 1980’s and candlesticks in the 1980’s. Explains today’s use of Fibonacci numbers and growing use of charts and chart patterns.

Today’s dishonest approach to markets is to socialize traders under one roof. Literally millions of traders today are locked down in trading rooms listening to market professionals that don’t exist and attracted by a small monthly fee. The rate of return and turnover must be astounding. The individual trader hardly exists anymore. Every trader is a member to something.

For the most part, the written word is becoming a waste of time as nobody exists to read due to trade rooms. My story is slightly different as I delivered profits for the past 10 + years and proven to consistent profits and methods. I don’t view trades and markets as the trading crowds.
