Ahh the big central bankers of countries and the Goldman Sachs masters of the universe controlling the market! They are the only ones that can figure this game out, they are the only ones that can make money, they are the only ones with the smarts to Buy AUD/USD at 0.9550 and sell it at 1.0250, they are the only ones with the smarts to short EUR/USD at 1.4275 and buy it back at 1.3000. See, those prices you saw on a chart didn’t really exist, those prices are only for the central bankers of the world to transact at.
Us little poor guys, we got no chance. The central bankers and Goldman Sachs have got the ivy league educations, the quant junkies on their side, they got the High frequency traders, the statisticians and supercomputers, they’ve got access to information, they got the politicians in their back pocket, they have all this money to throw around. How could us little guys stand a chance against these market behemoths? If only those stops behind historical ATR’s keep them safe, if only the world didn’t go into global meltdown fears and EUR/USD makes 1,000 pip moves. If only we could know what collectively they are doing.
Sad trading is, I tell ya, the deck is stacked against us small fries. We got a low chance to pick tops and bottoms, we got low chance to develop extremely profitable trading systems. Dang that’s why they opened up forex to us retail traders, the collective bankers of the world want to eat the big fries and us small fries too! They are damn hungry. Well lets quit the trading game and send them a pack of McDonald’s fries instead!
Please… give us a break
This wasn’t aimed at you tdion, but to the people out there who think they can’t win at this game, hopefully to get some laughter and brighten up the situation for New Years!
