Got this subscriber message today........
and really wanted to share it with others, not because it is the only positive remarks of support I get, but more because it highlights some under-emphasized aspects of Forex that I know I have learnt but others have to endure long enough to learn -- and sometimes do not.

Hello OutsidetheBoxHK and followers,
Forex is risky and to follow a Forex Trader is risky twice. That means, that followers should have a good reason to follow. One reason is : Need of money. Other reason is : They failed in making it on their own. When you follow a signal provider, you admit to need his help. He should help you to dive with your capital in the market and to come out richer than when you went in.
The market is a human made phenomenon. That means that you have to move recognizing and respecting the patterns of the market, but remaining still a human being. Not a robot. So be always ready to be free to change something on your way. It's life. Somehow predictable but not really. So if we trust a trader to follow, we decide to follow a human being with his rules and with his freedom to look at the life at what it is in every moment. Life is not always a straight line in front of us. Sometimes it changes direction. We should always be free to take the new direction and to accept new conditions. Otherwise you will run against the wall. That means you should not trade at your capital limits, but dispose a good margin of sleeping funds to be able to get your act together when conditions change.
Humans ego doesn't admit easily own mistakes and the obvious move is therefore to project the own inadequacy and deficiency onto the signal provider. Yes, many SP's are not that good, but it is always your own choice to follow them. Forex is like life. Not predictable 100%. OutsidetheBoxHK handles very well this aspect. He is a researcher. Very serious. Learn your lessons with him if you want and if you can. He even reserves a lot of time to communicate with his followers and give explanations. And not only on ZuluTrade. A fulltime job. If he wouldn't do it the right way, he couldn't earn his money with trading. Sorry to be long, but this is my humble opinion. Obviously with all the risk to be wrong. Greetings and thanks.
