Come here, man, I dont like to fight. Let's be friends. Really.

But I dont agree with you when you say a trader cant copy something from other trader. I myself developed various ideas after seeing others trade. Of course I add my own touch to make it more "my way", but i cant deny it helped me to open my eyes for some possibilities.

For Stage5, yes, the support is outstanding. It was one of the things I liked the most. And here in Brazil we dont have softwares so developed (we suffer to send an order fast!!!!), so OpenCry's one looks marvelous.

Open discussion isn't fighting.

Also copying isn't the same as executing. You could show me your system, heck even set with me in the same room for a few weeks. But the odds are I would not be able to execute it like you. And in the long run, I will end up probably losing more then I could ever make with it. Is it the system? No.

You cannot trade something you do not believe. And unless I have taken something and tailored it to me, it will not work. This is why everyone has problems with "turn key" trading strategies and mentors.

Also look at FT71 he is very open about his trading strategy. But most people cannot execute it like him.

Also making it "Your way" is something that I cannot steal from you. I cannot take "your way" away from you. All someone can do is make it their way which will be different from you. I personally have taken Brooks price action and mixed it with market profile. It works great for me. Will it work for someone else? Probably not.

Just wanted to voice my appreciation for S5's Anthony, Max and the rest of the team for there great work setting me up and supporting me in my move to futures from stocks which coincided with a move from London to Melbourne!

It hasn't been an easy setup either as I'm based in Melbourne with issues of latency with orders and prints in the DOM. I like to trade 'at the edge of my seat' type setups looking for pressure points on reversals, breakouts and stop runs etc and so it was crucial I had a low ping ms time. The guys were MORE than accommodating knowing that my orders routing to Chicago from my PC and onto the Eurex exchange and back would take a while (on scalping terms!). They recommended to me good alternatives with VPS/Co-location solutions and even a partnered data vendor that now allows me much faster print/execution speed.

We are almost there but I really felt the need to sing the praises of these guys to the high heavens. They're trustworthy, supportive and downright cool guys.

Don't hesitate to give Anthony or Max a call and hear how they can help you out!

Tip


Congratulations to Stage 5 Trading for winning a True Edge Award!



About the True Edge Awards:

In January 2017, we held an open nomination process whereby our members could openly nominate anyone they chose in 13 different categories. Some of those categories are: Futures Broker of the Year, Options Broker of the Year, Trading Platform of the Year, Options Platform of the Year, Mobile Platform of the Year, Data Feed of the Year, and Trading Product of the Year. There are also an additional six categories that are focused on user contributed content on our site, including: Member of the Year, Webinar of the Year, Thread of the Year, Journal of the Year, Programmer of the Year, and Indicator of the Year.

We then opened our voting system so that traders are the world could vote for their favorite in each category. When the voting closed, we selected the top three winners in each category and have awarded them as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place (Gold, Silver, Bronze awards).

Well guys got this message today:

The clearing relationship between Stage 5 and AMP has come to an end

Sigh! We have not a lot of choice here in Canada and now this one is gone. I liked my realtionship with Stage5. Great service and support as well as teaching from Morad which was one of the reason for going with them. I just hope they will find a replacement for the clearing firms that can accept us poor little Canadians. Thanks to you Morad for the service you have provided. I'll miss your trading room.

Now, i am considering a combine with topsteptrader to at least be able to carry forward my trading activities or switch to CFD using my Oanda account. Not sure what path i will take.
