I'm a full time student and new trader. I retired and wanted to manage my own investments. for the last 3 years, I've studied everything I could get my eyes on and arms around. I've read and I've sim traded. I stil haven't found my system although I'm clear that I want to trade futures and commodities as a day trader. later, when I learn how to trade successfully, I will move to Swing Trading for a little longer term trade.
I am looking forward to becoming more familiar with this site and to tune in to what I can learn here.
Thanks for starting this site and for the contributions you and all of the members have made.

I joined futures.io (formerly BMT) after I started working with NinjaTrader. Before that I was mostly trading index-options on the Eurex market, but I want and need to improve and want to get into automated trading. I hope to find hints and answers on futures.io (formerly BMT) for upcoming questions and problems, but also to help other members once I am more experienced.

Hello all, I've been trading for about 4 years. I started off trading stocks, specifically penny stocks. Yep, laugh it up. Didn't do too bad to be honest, all in all though that account mushroom clouded. From that moment on - I was determined to not only get my money back, but to get it back 10 fold.
I am currently focused on trading the ES.
By the way, this is the best forum I have ever come across. I'm extremely happy to be a part of futures.io (formerly BMT), thank-you Mike and to all the others who've contributed.
hello i am here because i needed to find another place to learn to program as i have developed my system with NT7, i was writing then started ranting i moved that below. i look forward to learning to program and have enrolled in a beginner course, in which is online. i have also watched BigMike sample video a few times. my mine problem seems to be learning the gammar and syntax, i am currently downloaded all of the strategies and i send time learning to "clearly" read them
**SORRY FOR THE RANT**(rant in white)
i have come to this forum because every question i asked in the ninjatrader forum was answered that is not supported, i understand the reason but as most of the people the lease or bought nt, are not programmers, i am not, altho i am studying, as most learn they need to do, but i learning student of programming needs answers the at least point them in the right direction, and this is what i hoping to find here, as it takes me many hours to try and figure out what is what.
mainly i am wanting to be pointed in the right direction

My name is Tim. For the past 5 years I have been living in parts of Europe. I have been trading for 10 years, commodities, equities and forex. My trading is fully systematic. I have done a lot of work with Neural Networks in the past and used Tradestation. Currently, I use Amibroker and I develop my system there. I am interested in predictive modeling and genetic algorithms applications to trading system development, especially for position/swing systems with an average trade holding period of 3 days.
All the best.
