I believe that there are some serious managers here with 2 years of history, and do very well. However, I'm pretty sure they aren't using myfxbook to fish for investors, but to actually use the statistics and tracking facilities (which I have to admit are really nice).
As for scalping, I believe that its much more difficult today doing it online, than it was 20 years ago doing it in a pit. The reason is simply that markets today are a lot more efficient than it was back then. I'm not saying its impossible, just a lot more difficult.
Also, if you're finding this thread annoying, you can unsubscribe from it. I'm still here cos I find it extremely entertaining.
The market will go up, failing which, it will go down.
