Hello

Trading Forex after years of trading equities and looking to get better daily. NinjaTrader and FXCM are who I am rolling with now even though I may start trading with Oanda.

Trying to get my MedianRenko knowledge game up.

This seems to be a high quality forum.

I'm excited to join this site. I'm not much of a poster, but do alot of lurking. I'm a struggling trader hoping to find more discipline and management of my trading. Since joining this site 8 days ago I have started to journal my trades and find that very rewarding, something I thought was too time consuming previously. I'm looking for other ideas to improve my trading and hopefully some day I can make some worthwhile contributions as well. Don

My Intro

Hello Everyone,

Here is a bit about me. I am a senior Mgr for a large firm in Ontario Canada. I have opted for the package and to look for new challenges. I coming to a xross roads in my carreer, just like some of the members here, do I continue working for someone or work for myself. One area of interest is trading.
I am still at the begining stages and trying to get information on trading. I have read several books and have been reading what ever I can find on the web. I am still trying to figure what platform to use that will work in Canada and canadian brokers

I am hoping to be able to learn, chat and contibute with everone.

I try to live by the KFC principle and hope to use it in trading:
Know what you want
Find out what you are getting
Change what you are doing to get what you want


Thank BigMike for granting me access to your site.

Welcome DK, always nice to see more Canadians

I'm using NinjaTrader as a platform, the platform you use will primarily depend on what your chosen broker supports (there are options to use a different platform for charting and execution but for a beginner, in my opinion only, it's better to use just one to master the basics) and let me know if you want more info on Canadian Brokers, I've just spent over 3 months researching and learning and I'm going live this week ....

I have tried to design my life by reverse engineering the process. Trading was the vehichle of choice. Sales requires inventory you pay cash for and you may or may not be able to sell at a profit. Why not keep it simple. Trading cash for currency of another country and exchanging it for a profit. Who would have thought of that! After many years of trading stocks, having won and lost several small fortunes. It occurred to me I have put up front a lot of money to make a little. Then I discovered the beauty of Forex and futures. A small margin to control a large lot of Etc. Bingo the cash began to click. Now onto to self discovery and the discipline required to make consistant profits day in and day out. 15 years later things are beginning to settle into a rythem. Still working for the man but getting much closer to the reality of trading part time for a full living. Thanks for the forum.
