PSA: Scam Alert! Gi2c aka Laowai Career Center is huge scam operation that cheated me and others and they delete all the complaints from the internet and Facebook!
I found this and the Abroad review links 2 years too late! Maybe this is worth a read; https://eslwatch.info/en/eslwatch-forum/china/756-old-russian-gi2c-scam-artist-is-back-laowai-career-center-new-china-job-scam.html. If you sent them a "refundable" deposit, just try to get it back NOW before they shut down or change their name again. They screwed me under the Gi2c flag 2 years ago. They conned me into quitting my $48K job in Fresno to come make "real money" in China with a public Forex trading company where after I completed an internship, I would earn six figures. They sent me a photo from Global Times newspaper of their 2 dozen interns already earning 6 figures with that company. But after I spent a small fortune moving and settling in Beijing where apartments are $1,500 a month and foreigners have to pay 3 months in advance, I arrived with a positive attitude to begin my new Forex trading career and am slammed on my second day in China with the news that "cooperation with that employer ended two days before your arrival". Instead of calling me to tell me that news they deliberately waited for me to come to China because they knew I would have demanded a refund! The GF of the Russian owner then told me she would get me in with another "big finance company but it would take a week or so". Two weeks later I am told I should teach English, until they can find me a more suitable job. I guess I believed them because I wanted to. Just like I believed all the reviews and testimonials they showed me. So I agreed to teach English for "no more than 90 days" for $800 a month which did not even cover my living expenses. I then found a better job on my own that paid six times the money, but the Russian owner Yuri told me "I'll pull your visa if you don't finish your teaching contract". I sent him to hell and three days later the China PSB security police came to my apartment and asked to see my passport. Thinking I did nothing wrong I showed it to them and they asked me where I worked. I gave them the name of my new employer and they arrested me saying I was working illegally on an F visa, the one Gi2c arranged for me. I tried to call Yuri while I was being booked at the cop shop but he answered and told me "Sorry smart ass but you have the wrong number!" I then tried to call him back but he had blocked my number. I spent 32 days in a Chinese jail eating cold rice and noodles every day along with "cha" (tea) before I was allowed to pay my fine and go home to Fresno. For almost two years I was too embarrassed to tell this story because I was so fucking dumb to fall into the Gi2C well. Now I see they changed their name to Laowai Career Center. When I got scammed a black guy named Chris D.was the Customer Service rep who was the only one who had any empathy for my situation but he said Yuri instructed him not to give any refund to me "unless he shows up with CCTV news crew". They operate via Skype, We Chat, Facebook, Just Landed and use a shit load of Google Adwords. They got me from an ad at TheBeijinger.com. Don't be fooled people. They are very good at what they do - scamming foreigners who have never been to China before. There is a bunch of stuff about them at scam.com, abroad reviews.com, here http://www.scamorg.com/laowai-career-center-beijing-amp-hangzhou-china-job-scam-a8, here http://www.scamorg.com/getin2china-group-81 and this latest one http://www.opnlttr.com/letteif-laowai-career-center-not-china-job-scam-they-should-answer-these-15-simple-questions. Just aske them those questions and see for yourself. And if you look at the dates on everything you will see they have been doing this fraud a loooooong time and get away with it bu changing their names every year or two.

In these difficult times, please be aware of trading/investment scams
In these difficult times, when many people may be losing their jobs, I wanted to draw attention to share trading/investment scams. They’re relatively easy to recognise if you’re familiar with their ways of working: they usually approach people out of the blue, offer fast or big returns, promote a lifestyle many of us wish we could have, don’t want to discuss the risks and they’re not regulated by the FCA. Now I’m not a finance expert and don’t know the ins and outs of the regulatory work but I know that I should only deal with companies with a good public presence that are also FCA approved. If they start dodging questions, it’s a clear sign that they may be up to no good. I was approached by someone on Reddit today offering investment account management promising returns in as little as 7 days. Their profile is full of photos of someone living a lavish lifestyle and sometimes looking at a few charts. They were super quick to respond to any question but suddenly went quiet when I asked about the FCA. Again, I’m not an expert and some offers may be genuine. But now that many of us are struggling, it’s important to be extra careful and avoid potential scams as much as possible. The FCA has some good guidance on their website about these scams and how to avoid them. Stay safe, all.
I heard someone say before that in forex you don't want to follow the "mainstream" aka most popular trend predictions, because someone has to lose for another to win. Everyone can't be winners. And fact is that most traders are losers. Is that really right though? Can someone explain more? I mean the popular predictions are popular for a good reason, and that is because all the indicators show that it's far more likely for the trend to go in a specific direction than the other way. Also, if it that was true, then it wouldn't be in the expert's interest to make posts and videos to show their trend predictions and charts, unless they are deceiving us by showing us the opposite of what they think will happen? But in that case they wouldn't have many followers for long. But if it is true that you want as many people to make the same trade as you, then why are people saying that it's against the interest of the real pros who have actually winning strategies and winning expert AI to publicly release their strategies?
Why don't forex trading funds exist, that are openly available to the general public
It's a simple question that I cannot think of an answer to. If someone can shed some light it would be nice. Is it a regulatory measure only allowing institutions to trade for high net worth individuals (that would be my guess).
This sub is becoming a toxic place. There might be many reasons but one of them is the lack of trust. What I offer is a mandatory user flair for anyone who is making money trading while also offering any kind of an accompanying services
.. like mentoring or giving signals, those who run their own or promote other’s Discords, Facebook groups, YouTube channels, Instagrams etc. Except for the personal vlogs. Please vote if you’re pro this idea and/or comment if you wish. Then these flaired users will be ranked and those who are prop-trading like me will be able to choose or even ask them directly for free or for a price. I mean don’t we pay lawyers or engineers when inquiring them? Weekly AMAs would be great. It’d help ranking. I’ve spent some time on subredditstats.com comparing the most popular trading-relates subs and we really need to do something with this one which I personally like very much. Also, it has Forex in description while there are not so many active discussions on that topic. Even futures aren’t discussed actively. It’s mostly stocks. Why not just focus on stocks then. Equities, derivatives and futures. There are subs for crypto, Forex and commodities. Actually what I’d love to see here is a meme-free version of wsb that is way less exposed to the public yet has certain level of concentrated competence and experience. Thank you for your attention. I’ve spoken. Edit: *lawyers View Poll
Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted
In my exploration of the world of big data and I became curious about tick data. Unfortunately, market data is almost always behind a paywall or de-sampled to the point of uselessness. After discovering the Dukascopy API, I knew I wanted to make this data available for all in a more accessible format. Over the course of a few months, I downloaded, cleaned, parsed, and compressed over a decade of Forex tick data on 37 currency pairs and commodities. Today I am happy to finally release the final result of my work to the DataHoarder community!
The data was collected from https://www.dukascopy.com/ via a public API that allows for the download of tick data on the hour level. These files come in the form of a .bi5 file. The data starts as early as 2004 all the way to 2019. These files were decompressed, then merged into yearly CSV’s named in the following convention. “AUDCHF_tick_UTC+0_00_2011.csv” or ‘Pair_Resolution_Timezone_Year.csv’ These CSV’s are split into 3 categories “Majors”, “Crosses”, “Commodities”. Majors, Crosses, and Commodities have had their timestamps modified so that they are in the official UTC ISO standard. This was originally done for a Postgresql database that quickly became obsolesced. Any files that have been modified are appended with a “-Parse”. These timestamps have been modified in the following format. Millisecond timestamps to UTC +00:00 time [2017.01.01 22:37:08.014] -- [2017-01-01T22:37:08.014+00:00] https://preview.redd.it/x6g277skfiu51.png?width=1399&format=png&auto=webp&s=35cd6735c1826424580919ac3377612377a3107c
For those looking to use this data in a live context or update it frequently, I have included a number of tools for both Windows and Linux that will be useful.
The ~/dukascopy/resources/windows folder contains a third party tool written in java that can download and convert Dukascopy’s .bi5 files. I have also included the latest zstd binaries from Zstandard Github page.
Linux is my daily driver in 99% of cases, so I have developed all my scraping tools using Linux only tools. In the ~/dukascopy/resources/linux folder you will find a number of shell script and pyhton3 files that I used to collect this data. There are quite a few files in this directory but I will cover the core ones below.
This file is used to download a single symbol for a single day and then convert and merge all 24 .bi5 files into a single CSV.
This file is used to download a single symbol for a full year and then convert and merge all .bi5 files into a single CSV.
This file contains all the core logic for downloading and converting data from dukascopy.
This tad slow but works well enough. It requires the pandas project and parses timestamps into the UTC ISO standard. This is useful for those looking to maintain the format of new files with the those in this repo, or those looking to use this in a SQL database.
