my name is Rainer.
I am a Trader since around 10 years (or more dont really remember ) and doing this fulltime for around 4 years.
So I started with NT7 now which supports .NET and C# for extensions.
While looking around for informations about NT7, I found this forum and already VERY USEFUL Information - Thanks to the Thread "NinjaTrader and VS2010 for Dummies"
So it is a good start right now.
Best to All,
The following 2 users say Thank You to loschle for this post:
Welcome and good luck on your journey finding indicators that work at least 60-70 percent of the time. Indicators in and of themselves don't work that well. If they did I believe this forum would be full of reports of those 70% indicators . My pretty extensive but unscientific study shows that indicators work more like 30-40% of the time. With some tweaking and curve fitting you can get them to work at a higher success rate but then they stop working after a while. However, you're in a great place to learn how to trade.
After many years of mixed to poor results as a discretionary trader, I recently started to test a few mechanical systems, some developed by me and a few by vendors. I find this subject of automation fascinating and believe it is the wave of the future for retail traders given the advances in technology and software and the hurdle of harnessing human emotions.
The challenge, however, is the same regardless of the approach. Namely, to find a consistent edge that can pass the test of time.
I've been trading for over 15 years, primarily equities both short and long term. Early this year I started day trading as well. It's been an interesting experience and I hope to learn from others as well as share my experiences.
My name is Walter and I am a active trader for about 5 years. Since 2008 I am trading for living.
I was with eSignal as my preferred trading platform since 2002. My preferred instruments were and are
ES Mini, Russel Mini, DAX, EUR.
In past months I was looking for a modern charting platform which supports 64bit OS with a reliable data feed.
eSignal was not bad for me but the software is - from my perspective - not up to date. The upcoming version might eliminate some of the obstacles the older version had.
I am impressed by NT 7 so far and decided to give it a try. Btw. I was pointed to this forum and must say that the first impression is fantastic. It is always helpful to have a community which honestly helps each other to achieve the results one try to achieve.
I have been trading for several years, but more seriously in the last two. more out necessity thanks to the economic downturn.
I day trade futures and longer term with options. I have found that I can predictably nail an entry, but fail at timing the exit properly, either by holding on too long and watching profits evaporate, chickening out and exiting, or trailing stops too tight. Reading posts from other members is helping me take the emotion out of my trading. Hard thing to do.
Hey, I am new to trading although been in the market with investing for many years. I am looking to learn from the experts here, share my experiences, and eventually give back when appropriate. I have enjoyed lurking and it is now time to become active!
