May I know your parameters of Fibo? Are you make dealing with the default sittings or any custom level?


The larger your timeframe, the stonger (more accurate) the signal. eg. compare 1m/5m to Daily/Weekly.


Trading is not a science. You must adapt to market. Do not have rigid rules, else you may lose or miss opportunities.
No specific parameters, basically only:

The larger your timeframe, the stonger (more accurate) the signal. eg. compare 1m/5m to Daily/Weekly.

@BluePanther
It is the other way around. have a trading plan, follow it precisely.
If you do not follow rules you are not trading but gambling. And your result does correspond to gambling- losing for years and then you made a fortune on few trades.
It is good you had success with your approach but please do not recommend it to anyone else as people here do not have IMHO time and wealth to lose money for years.
I am trying to say while you could afford to be in loss for years nobody else could do so.

I agree with you:
- I do gamble; if anyone can predict the market they are lying.
- If anyone is profitable from day one, they are probably also lying.
- What works for me will not work for someone else; everyone should find what works for them.

I leave you with some quotes to ponder:

'Forex trading is difficult. I started trading forex because I wanted to get rich without working hard. Simple. I’ll admit, I got sucked into the typical marketing hype that we so often see in the industry, but the reality of forex trading is, it’s bloody hard.

I’ve lost count of the number of traders who claim to be professionals, produce a sexy myfxbook, stroke my ego and then disappear. Never to be heard of again. This industry (and maybe life in general?) is full exaggerations and bullshit. If someone tells you they’re making money trading, I’ll bet you a bucket of pips that they’ve lost more than they’ve gained.

It’s not impossible to make money, but it’s really really hard.'
- Nick McDonald (Forex Signals)

I lost a lot, but I have gained all my losses back. I don't expect you to believe me. It should mean nothing to you - only to me.

Then they should not even attempt. Trading is not easy. If a trader:
a) is not willing to commit considerable sums at risk,
b) and have a stable income to pay for food and rent,
then they are in NO POSITION to attempt trading.

Unless they find a 'safe' signal or EA (??) Good luck!

What do you need someone to proof to verify the below as true not a lie
if anyone can predict the market they are lying.
- If anyone is profitable from day one, they are probably also lying.

I'm sure you can answer your own question.
Thanks.

Sorry, how rude that I should end the discussion here. Allow me to speak on behalf of the majority (I think):
a) markets are not predictable, guaranteed, foreseeable, always behaving as expected.
b) a true trader will (usually) lose money before they become successful as a trader.

Proof to the contrary is welcome, however, especially in the case of a) I would not believe proof unless I could experience the results myself!

My statements can be proven by many forums, traders, market news, market behaviour, etc.

Hope this satisfies your query.

Happy trading!

Hi Matt
How did you make all the money back? Do you use an EA? Wow really wild swings on your trading but that makes it so exciting! 😲


Proper trading is not meant to be exciting. It is supposed to be quite boring because you are holding positions for days or weeks, and it can take a while to close them. It is a waiting game and it is all about patience!

If your trading is exciting (like mine) you are probably doing something wrong: eg. gambling, taking excessive risks, living dangerously

I don't advise you to do the same. Try to be patient and play it safe. Be a millionaire... slowly.
