What you said was pretty humbling and was straight forward, so I apologize for coming into the myfxbook acting like a big shot. It has been hard for me to talk with others who have traded for an extensive amount of time. I choose not to follow the news and can easily get too wrapped up in my own little world.
So again, I am sorry for my rudeness, and need to remember that I do not know who is on the other end of my conversation. This rule I have researched is based on peoples emotions, and I will not share at this time how it came to be, but when it did, it just seemed right. I did run research and then played the finished product (rule) on a demo for 8 months, because I was facing the same ridicule of other professional traders, made me hesitate and not believe in what I made meant a hill of beans compared to what had already been built and tested in the market.
So when I did start an account with real funds, I had small hopes that what I had put much time in on would continue to work. I started using my rules Feb of 2007, and they still hold true today, except that I can predict the 4% loss now since they only happen at recognizable areas that I just refuse to trade, but the time of not being in the market is a week or less!
