Being able to see traders publish their forecasts and trades is priceless. Because it gives the viewer the opportunity to see how things develop in the market, how tricky it can be.
How a good trade can end bad, and how a trade that was few pips close to stop loss went the other way to reach target.
You can know that the trading is not just forecasting the direction. Its about choosing when to enter and exit. Otherwise, the forecast is not converted to real money.
The benefits of publishing trades is endless. And its totally free and social here. So Is there is any need to bash or criticize others trades? I don't see any benefit for that. I see that this is against the main goal of tradingview, which is sharing the knowledge.
One thing to be always aware of...qui bono? Who would benefit most from an individual broadly sharing a unique view of the markets and winning off said? Individual traders, or those who front for major groups looking to backwards engineer the unique view and steal the individuals lunch? Someone always benefits from another man 'sharing'.
This is far more important than anyone's assumed wrangling over mere opinion in the market.
Anyway, everybody has the right to have a opinion but is offending and rude to acuse someone of being paid for posting, without any prof.
I don't consider myself being part of any "herd"...
