That's quite the effort Alex, lol. As a lover of memes, and occasionally... women, I approve your message 👍
I'm glad there aren't others who feel the same way. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Haha calm down Karen, granted the imagery is all over the place and maybe shouldn't be encouraging him but thought the message behind it is simple enough, don't fall for get rich quick schemes. As a customer he's perfectly entitled to feel disgruntled if he didn't get his money's worth from such products.
Is your life made up of nothing but clichés and memes? Apparently these are your guides in life. Starting a sentence with haha doesn't exclude you from the stupidity you're complicit in.

Also just to add, find a sport that suits you.
  • Suits you and interests you.
No point having a job trading horses if you only like football. I'm not fussed about any of the tradable sports so that's why I do it by numbers, and never have to watch any of it.
My hat's off to you Shaun for making a cold approach like that work, I know plenty would say that treating it like a regular job is practically a requirement but not fully convinced that is the ideal approach... I feel a bit of raw passion can go a long way when it comes to market selection.

What's the guy from Mythbusters done wrong? :)

It's kind of naive to expect Caan's book to be a masterclass, it's a beginners guide isn't it? ...or should be, there's always more beginners than intermediates (afterall pros don't need a book) so if you're writing a book then level 1 stuff will always sell more copies.
The weak will always find an excuse for their failure but it will never be their fault.

No, I also enjoy the occasional dadjoke

If you want to be dead serious all the time on a public forum that's fine by me :)

If it's a public forum shouldn't you have respect for those who are about to read your opinions? After all people are looking for guidance not clowns to make them laugh

He has a point Kai. Maybe lay off the memes for a while?

Personally I think you've been neglecting your gif game. Maybe focus on them for a while?

What is even the point, people are too stubborn to listen to every bit of advice. Why wouldn't you try and do a bit of everything honestly?

But before the thread disintegrates into something less pleasant you can reply to my private inbox along with any other inquiries into my private life and I'm happy to address it to the best of my ability.

I don't think anyone is interested in your private life. Just that you should show more respect for others as Shawn and others do.

Hi Pat :)

That's true I suppose, not really sure why people get their panties in a bunch so easily, you can't even roleplay a bit of Ron Burgundy before people start believing you're actually a chauvinist anchorman from the 70's :)

Wait you mean you're not a chauvinist anchorman from the 70's?!

Just wondering if we should get back to helping people understand what it takes to be a successful trader?

Just a general comment, not specific to anybody. Thread has drifted somewhat since I last checked in.
