Actually the guy I spoke to has lost a lot, I nearly had a heart attack when he told me how much. Mainly I think because he over leveraged. It's quite common in the mirror signal provider world. Investors just see dollar signs. They stick a load of different systems on there and the equity curve tells them that they will be a millionaire by teatime and so they decide to go with it.
Unfortunately, it's generally the case that the people who can't trade, don't understand lot sizes, leverage or drawdown are the ones that end up using signal provider services. It's a definite case of a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.
