Intro


Hello all,

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.

Great forum Mike!

I am primarily a software developer. With experience in developing trading systems.
So I figured why not try and make a little extra money, learn some things and have fun while doing it.

I am working with Ninja Trader but itching to build some custom C# apps

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.

Just noticed a typo. My first trading experience was in 2004-05, not 1994-5.

Welcome aboard guys

Looking forward to your posts.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

INTRO


Hi Mike

Here is another newbie in the Forex trading Arena. For 8 months I have undergone training after training, bought robots and try systems that I come across.

Recently, someone advised me, it is not the systems nor the robots, but the trader himself and his discipline, that makes him a success or failure.

Hope to gain and learn from the experienced traders in this forum

Albert
