I've been trying to figure this stuff out for years. Spent thousands of dollars for one new system after another.

Hi everyone!

Like most day traders, I blew up my account a couple times and lost enough money to make most grown men weep. After I regrouped I started trading with common sense and with control of my emotions.

Later, I decided I wanted a forum to share my ideas as well as learn from others. I created my blog on April 17th, 2009 in order to meet this goal, as well as hold myself accountable for my trades and actions. I wanted a way to be able to lookback and ensure I was following my own advice.

The blog introduced me to a lot of fellow traders, some struggling, some doing exceptionally well. Talking with them everyday has really helped my trading and given me a lot of new ideas as well. In turn, I hope that I have provided them something useful that helps in their trading.

Since the blog did very well I decided to create this forum, and it was born June 11th, 2009. The forum was designed with the specific goal of having a small community of traders focused on making money. There are other sites out there but I never really felt at home with many of them, their userbase is too focused on proving someone wrong instead of trying to help.

Hello. My name is Alex. I am a trader since 2009. I was lucky, and I increased my bill for the first year of trading at 50 times. Do not be impressed by such figures. I started trading on the Russian market with $ 300. I finished the year with a score of 15000 dollars. Then obtained worse. I have done for the year just 15,000 dollars. And with the beginning of 2011 I did not do anything.
I learned a new approach of trading. I learned it well. All the money that was earned in the market, I took off. I did not give the market anything. Now I am ready to start from scratch in the western U.S. market. I am a scalper and deytreyder. I try to keep my position until the close, as 80% of all closings yield good profits
I'm well read the tape and catch bottoms and tops of the day. I also use a trading reports on the positions of commercial traders, which aims to determine the trend, and whether a trend or not. If there is a trend I'm in a position with the trend until the end of the day. If the trend is gone, I do scalps.

Hello & Murrey Math Lines for Ninja 7

I'm from the little village of Bean Blossom, Indiana. I have "played" at trading for nearly 15 years. Got a very good mentor about a year ago...after a long string of losers and one who wants to see me succeed ....and he has done in the terms of millions of verifiable dollars in his career. I do as I am told..shut up and listen. ...ask questions when needed and practice, practice, practice.

I concentrate on the E6 ( Euro) pretty much exclusively during this time. I will expand out into other markets in the future...but this is my "niche" market and I am getting good. Filling up my trading account bank so I can protect against the swings I have learned in all this practice and turn a good set of trades each time.

I am in need of a copy ...if anyone out there has one...of Murrey Math lines that will work on Ninja 7. I have used the ones that work on 6.5 ..but my brokerage company is phasing this version of Ninja Trader out by June 3rd. So if someone can help me please I would appreciate it very much.

This is great

After spending quite some money on useless education I am glad I found this forum. I have already watched the Al Brooks webinar on price action. Wow is that helpful. I look forward to learning much more alongside all of you.

Here I am!

Hi all

My name is Angelo people call me ang


My first registered trading forum, don't know if i have posted correctly so like my trading i just do something & see what happens! (not quite that randomly), so here I am!

I think I am an intermediate trader, on the circuit for 4 yrs & like most others I'm here for advice to learn & hopefully reciprocate it to newbieís should i be successful!

About me, i am a newbie to NJ, Futures & FX, i havenít settled on what I like trading as yet, i have been staring at charts for the last 4yrs full time with not much success every time i get some wind in my sails i get pulled back,

i guess what Iím looking for is some likeminded people who are willing to share their knowledge & care enough to see me succeed, unlike the predators out there!


Much appreciation to you Mike & THE MEMBERS for your time, effort & generosity to people like myself.

Click Webinars from the top of any page, it is there. Al Brooks will also be doing a second webinar for us in June for our 2-year anniversary.

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.
