ii)                   Last Replied Threads:

Here we have a thread which got the latest reply on it. Here we have an “EURUSD Only” thread. So we can go through the page by clicking on it, (ref. Screenshot#2 >Read Box) or Click Here

Okay, so now we have three boxes here, I’ve mentioned them with the red box (ref. Screenshot#3 )

1- The first one box is representing the pages number, you can read more and more till the end the replies on the thread.

2- The second red box is representing the poll the starter makes for the thread.

3- The third red box is representing the story of the thread.

Tip: The tip is about the second red box, representing the poll of the thread, as in the poll we have three options to choose any one of them as an answer of the question (So, should we allow correlations?)

a)                  Yes, but no chars, please!

b)                  Yes, and charts are okay too!

c)                   No, we shouldn’t allow them at all.

So, readers, the second option is really very good to choose here, as I’m an experienced forex trader so I know the value of the charts, that’s why you can see the poll also have the maximum vote in the second option. In my next blogs, I will describe charts or charts pattern too.

iii)                 Latest Threads under any topic:

This portion is representing the latest threads under any topic. Here we have the first one is “which pairs are you buying and why?”
