Hello Mike and everyone !
I am a member of the community since one month and almost every day I am reading
in the forum and finding interesting ideas. I would like to thank Mike and all the creatve members doing such a great work.
I have been trading for 10 years and still studying the markets.
The following user says Thank You to kiro for this post:
Welcome to all new members! Glad to have you here, and look forward to your posts!
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.

My names is Carl i'm living in Sweden.
I'm a beginner to daytrading but have 5 years experience from swingtrading. I have been evaluating my trading strategy for about 6 months now, on trading live with a very small account, and working hard with my trading discipline.
Daytime i work parttime as an electrician and use the rest of the time to studie hard to learn more on trading, mostly S&P500.
I'm thinking of maybe participating in the trading contest BM is planning for mars to practice in documenting my trades in a trading journal. The problem is that i have to earn a living and therfore don't have time to trade every single day... But i need the experiance. And will probably learn a lot.
Thanks for inviting me BM.
Hi! Not new to trading...but new to actively participating in the room. I am semi-retired...hoping to become full-time retired. I LOVE trading and treat it like a job, but do not consider it work. I am hoping not to have to go back to work and drive from Fort Worth to Dallas on a regular basis again.
I have been trading the equity markets, with some success. But I am not consistent enough, especially during these slow times. Is it time to consider other markets and methodologies? I am open to suggestions and what works for you outside the equity markets.
I have been actively trading for over 8 yrs. Must say without consistant success. I tend to create a strategy that works well and get overly aggressive and fail miserably...Id say im fine tuning my trading and realize that this is more of a growth process on how to deal with wanting success. Living by a trading code of discipline is what i want to create. Peace and Prosperity...Jimmaya
Just getting back in after a brief stint about 10 years ago. Mike has obviously established a great
resource for all who love trading. I have much to learn and to hopefully contribute. Lookin forward.....
thank you so much for accepting me as part of this great community, i'm still learning to trade since 2006.....went through tons of softwares and programs however the psychology is the most obstacle for me, trying to get over it...
looking forward to learn a lot and share what i have with you....
