It's great to have someone with this experience on this forum. I'm curious your favorite method for trading is. Do you use indicators or not? I would be interested in hearing any details you want to share.

Well we were taught to trade using technicals and fundamentals. I don't use any indicators except for stochastics. I can see how they can help people trade if they don't understand the market but they aren't anywhere consistent enough for my liking

Bank traders don't use indicators they use Trendlines to trade around and they use bars not candles, this stems back from the early days when we didn't have charts on computers they were drawn out manually on huge sheets of paper so obviously, we couldn't use any fancy indicators.

Wow, Great to have someone with all that experience here.

Do(did) you use fib or gann levels at all? 
The more I look at fibs the more I think hitting certain levels are just luck shots, unless there is confluence with other fib ranges and/or trend lines.

Hi Francois - It would be wrong to say they were never used - however the only time they would get used would be when there were no Trendlines (Entry Levels) but the probability of a good trade reduces
