We will never know that but we will take that in good faith and expect members to act in good faith as well.
Personally I look forward for hh to verify his account as this will lift the status of BOE.
If that plan includes teaching others do what you are capable of doing everyone will hail you. As of now there's a gap despite your efforts on your 2 threads, and reading your recent response post#113, this gap will remain status quo on BOE.
let me clear the air here.
#1. Lifting the status of BOE
The verification of my trading account or the massive returns of my profit will not lift the status of BOE.
In fact it is such shallow and demeaning expectations that will ruin BOE, pal.
BOE is more than that. Personally, the reason BOE has been around for so long and is gaining popularity has nothing to do with hobbyist like me showing off profits.
BOE is as successful as it is today because of all the non-commercially linked learning and sharing opportunities it has been providing.
BOE is as successful as it is today because of a one-stop shop portal to make redress if u are being played by the unscrupulous brokers.
BOE is as successful as it is today because of the level of enthusiastic hobbyist guiding the newbies.
BOE is probably the most transparent public trading forum there is.
If u think that the status of BOE will be elevated to a higher level because i can proof my profits are real, u are discrediting all the hard and genuine work of a lot of selfless hobbyist here.
#2. Teaching others
Teach? Can u show me how it is done? Wait, have u even 'teach' here at BOE? No, let's try something easier. Have u share a trading strategy or sorts?
No need for replies. Its rhetorical.
#3. Everyone will hail me
Really? Wow, that must be a turn-on........for u?
If u think that me and the many hobbyist here, yearn for being 'Hailed' and that is the reason why we are sharing and starting threads.
Again u are discrediting us. And in doing so, u are reducing the entire BOE community to a pit of shallow narcissists.
A trader for more than 20 years or so is just that.
It doesnt mean he/she is successful. He/she can be a mediocre or probably at best, does not suck so much in trading but doing it for 20 years.
I have seen a statement made by a 'supposedly' trader of more than 20 years a while ago in a very popular dud thread. Yup, popular yet dud.
The comment goes like this, "if we could make an indicator that can detect waterfall".
That phrase wasnt taken out of context but it caught my eye. And i scroll through the BOE thread and trying to get my head around this comment coming from a 20 year experience trader.
Finally i realised one thing. It doesnt mean shit if u have been trading for 20 years. It doesnt mean shit if u are trading professionally.
All these does not automatically make u a trading guru.
So when u say there is a gap despite my efforts. let me say this.
Show me a thread that has an instructional material that clearly, specifically and pinpoint focally tells a trader to place his/her trade.
And from the moment of reading that thread to the moment the expiry result comes out, there is NO gap.
Show me that.
This is not me getting angry or it is a hate crime being executed here.
BOE is a very good and genuine trading,learning and sharing platform.
We will have scammers and fraud coming in here, trying to rip newbies off.
As a community, we have to safeguard everyone.
So if u have been approached by me, trying to sell u something or asking for money. Well, u know who u should go to.
But there is another form of threat here. Subtle on surface but deadly underneath.
The threat is learning from someone who perceives to be a pro or veteran trader.
There are few good such traders here, no doubt. But there are also those who are pro or veteran who could be struggling for years.
Filled with outdated approach and too stubborn to learn new things.
These are the toxic waste and filth u should avoid.
How do u detect one? Look out for those who constantly not willing to share in depth trading methodologies.
Look out for those who goes around telling u what u missed and what can be done better but he/she not willing to start a thread about it.
In another words, look out for those who 'talk' more than they 'walk' the 'talk'.
i am sure all of u should have seen at least one by now.
