Now that I have been introduced to your web-site and its goals, I am very excited about participating in whatever positive way I can. I know I sure need the help myself and hope to offer some assistance @ some time in return.
West Coast Trader from San Francisco. Best trade ever... Leaving Bear Stearns in 07' as Institutional Sales Broker before the shit hit the fan and went to a prop firm- Assent in SF where they gave me enough leverage to hang myself by the end of my first year. Now P/T trading ES until I can support my family trading.
Hi, I'm Andrea and I have been trading for 4 years. I get up every morning at 6:00 and watch the market, I take paper trades and made a great living as for real trades I get in a panic and can't think straight, my biggest problem is discipline and trusting a plan. I'm hoping to break out of this pattern and be a success story to help others and help my husband retire early or at least on time.
Ive been studying trading futures seriously for about 2 years. I work full time and get home in time for London open. Luckily I am a night owl and dont need much sleep. Like most, my goal is to ditch the 9 to 5 and trade for income. I havent reached a level of consistency to do that yet but I've passed through the indicator seduction path and the get rich quick myth and now am putting together my own niche approach to trading price action at SR levels. I look forward to learning more here.
Hi everybody, first I would like to thank Big Mike for such a great forum...I am new to this type of trading (only a couple of weeks live trading ES) and have had mixed results. Mainly due to experimenting with different strategies. I use price action only no indicators just buy sell volume. I just try to get a feel for what the traders are doing in the overall market, while closely paying attention to the chart ( 2 and 5 min) I have not yet worked out which one works best for me. So far I have had my best results watching the price action of CAT stock at the same time and using it as an indicator, not fool proof, but it seems to work for me. Other than that I have to learn to stay out of the chop, that is where i have lost money. Thanks to all, Terry

I am glad I have found such an informative and friendly site.
I am a relatively new trader (who has also lost his first stash) and use MT4.
I have an interest in the Harmonic system and I also use the 'Pipsnager' indicators.
I have also has successes in Trading the London close! letting the market come back to equilibrium.
At the moment though, while building my small account brick by brick, I am concentrating on the psychology of trading mainly studying Mark Douglas on Trading in the Zone and his Disciplined Trader.
Thanks for a great site!
