I think he was quoting some Zen Bodhisutra something or another.

When you have a solid edge, please start a thread about it and tell everyone exactly
how it works.
"those that know, don't talk and those that don't know...talk."
No I'm being serious, MMs are taught to visit forums and chat rooms. I'm not trying to insult you and I've learned a lot from you ichi. My main strategy is actually derived from your posts (and Kyle's) about Ichimoku clouds and I never meant to infer that you aren't helping out.
I'm just saying that MM's are known to look around to get an idea of what's going on so it's good that you aren't giving away your secrets.
Ichibom is a god and I wouldn't have a strategy right now if it wasn't for you
Do MM's read Forums? I never thought about it.
OK, yeah I fancied the idea that I call it this way
and it went that way... Damn "They read my post"
but I always thought that was tin foil hat
......? Am I getting the jist of this or am I totally off?
Also I always love to see investigation.
I think tracking performance of said theory worthy of exploration.
A flip of the coin is random,
but random chance too can be predicted.
Some would give heads 65%.
while it is well known with random mathematicians,
that spinning pennies has over 75% tails chance
and balancing pennies on edge and banging the table results
in a predictable manner as well (I forget the details).
My point is that why not track, Analise whatever you can to
see if you can get an edge.
That's what I'm told anyway, is what it's all about.
It doesn't matter sometime if most think it's futile.
Trying for yourself is what matters. If your wrong at least you tried.
I would suggest a spreadsheet. Last what? Hourly candle bullish or bearish. mark it down.
Record performance the next day. Keep a record for a year. Then get back to us.
JK, you should try to back date/test it if you can. Let us know.
