So take your time and study the movements. Sim until profitable on Cl consistanly before going full throttle. Just a quick heads up.!! Enjoy everything BM has to offer.
I just joined and after clicking around a bit, I must say a big THANK YOU to Big M and all who have shared their knowledge, insight, and experience here. This is one greatly run forum.
I'm getting up in "Life Experience"; will be 65 in a few months. I started trading in Jul of 1987 and had my baptism in an option's greeks during the crash. Made 6 figures profit with a modest account and gave it all back within 3 weeks. What you may have read about blowing up your account, knowing yourself, etc; most of the mistakes in trading I have done. Expensive tuition.
I'm currently looking to get back into futures and options on futures, especially the currencies and bonds. I did some spot FOREX but when the CFTC changed the rules, I said "Adios."
Looking forward to what I can learn and maybe give back in this forum.

Hello to all. I found futures.io (formerly BMT) a few days ago, and am pleased I did. Just joined the "elite" group, and looking forward to participating as my skills allow.
I've been trading for either 1 or 2 years, depending on whether you count the year in 1994-95, when I spent all the time and money I was willing to spend. Didn't think I'd come back to trading, but a year ago I closed my business and made the decision to come back.
I'd like to say I'm consistently profitable, but.........not quite.
I trade US equities only, using NT7 with a couple of indicators, and a direct-access broker (Genesis/Laser) and level 2. I execute on the level 2, and have a little skill in 'tape reading', but need more.
