  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Hello everyone!

I'm very curious about day trading, I have been playing with NinjaTrader for one year in part time, have made a little program for auto trade, back test shows 20% performance, I never go live with it. I'm here to see if it's possible to have a system that can do 100% yearly, at the same time I want to know what the pro do to be successful, I'm very glade I found this forum as I felt very isolated doing the programing on my own.

Thanks Mike!

Hello, I'm new here.

Just want to take a minute to introduce myself. I'm Sidney and have traded stocks, ETFs and Forex but not as successfully as I would like. I'm studying Futures trading now and hoping to improve my skills and make a good living. Looking forward to meeting and learning from all of you, and of course giving back in any way that I can.

Cheers, Sid

Looking forward to sharing and learning

Hi all,
I want to thank Mike for creating this community and providing an environment to share ideas, observations and get to know other traders. I have been trading for over 10 years. Initally, mostly stocks and ETFs and had this silly idea that trading futures would be a great way to make money and not have to select and manage individual stocks. I went to (and paid big $$$$$) to lots of people that assured those of us that paid up that their methodology was the way.............. Then I tried to apply their methods and lost large piles of money. I kept thinking that I had not found the right person to show me the way. I repeated this cycle a few more times until the pain became almost unbearable, so I stepped back and took some of the basic things I learned, became honest with myself about my demons and realized that money management and minimizing large losses was the key for me. I use very few indicators, but have developed a couple that are quite helpful for me. I have also been much more focused on price action and utilizing time and sales and the dom to assist in entries. I have begun to be profitable, and look forward to sharing my thoughts and questions with this group. I commend the desire to share and help other traders. I primarily trade CL and the 6E and use Ninja and Thinkorswim.

My degree is in Math and engineering, so I tend to think about what I am seeing in the market and look for patterns. I have not been writing much code, but plan to make it a priority as time permits. I like to test my ideas, and that has been the best way for me to evaluate something I am looking at. I had a trading friend who was quite good at code, but less skilled in money management, and he is not trading anymore. Well....anyway. We all have our stories to tell.

I am having surgery at the end of the week that will be away from this for a few weeks, but look forward to participating more when I can.

Good trading,

hi all

New to the forums here.

I have dabbled with automated trading and some MT4 Forex automated system with no success. Prefer automated solutions to take my goofy mind out of the equation. I have used InvestorRT, SierraCharts and MultiCharts in the past and am trying to make a move back to multicharts. Any info/help with automated strategies for MC is appreciated, thanks!

I have been at this forex trading since February 2006 and I have blown up a few accounts that i believe was my tuition for learning in this industry. Like many of you I have paid too much for some over priced training that promised a lot but delivered a little.

I have grown mentally and still working on my psychology because it is a work in progress thanks to some members posting that i have learned from on this forum. I also make a plan that I am sticking to including reward to risk, money management, managing the trade and trading a particular setup repeatedly. I look forward to learning from each other in this forum.

By the way I am using Ninja Trader 7, with MB Trading as my broker, and I started journaling my trade so I can review them.
