Hello all. I'm glad to have joined this forum and look forward to learning from others.
I'm currently sim trading with Ninja + Zen-Fire during market hours.
I know it's not the same thing but at least it puts structure into my day (I live in the Pacific Time zone) and gives me an idea of what markets I like to trade and how they move.
I currently like trading the YM. My performance is decent but not anything stellar. Luckily I've been smart enough to read up on a few things before I even started. I find particularly helpful money management - cutting losses short and honoring stops. I currently use a 1:2 risk to reward ratio with 8/21 ema crossover strategy on a 4 range bar.
Any pointers on setups that have been found to be profitable? optimal risk-reward ratios? Ideal times in the market to trade?
I also feel I need a coach. I've been reading a lot of good things about the EOT Pro Live trading room and how they make good calls and education. If you have any insight into these services can you please refer me to a couple good ones?
Thanks a bunch and I look forward to the learning.

I have been on the Ninja platform for about 30 days and on this site for 2 weeks.
Attached is a screen shot of what is working for me while working on gettting my current custom indicators from Thinkorswim written in Ninjascript (Big Mike may have a project).
Reading your forum has taught me a lot. I'm not sure how much I can contribute
to experts but I will do my best, if I feel I can add anything of value I will. If anyone
needs anything of me, please ask.
Thanks for welcoming me to your community. I just finished my Msc Geospatial Information system, I developed interest in trading whilst I was writing my thesis for the program. Ever since I have actually opened a forex account but never traded.
The reason being that at least 40 - 50 % of my decision to place a trade should not be subjective, I haven't achieved that and am back to my research board. I don't know if that is possible ...
Anyway my research area is current based on this topics below and I hope the community would help me on my way ..
1 - Hilbert sine waves inicator by John Ehlers
2 - MurreyMaths
3 - Adaptive Regression Channel
4 - value chart
I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Ben H., and I'm a new trader, focusing specifically on the ES. I've been trading a sim account via Ninjatrader for almost 4 weeks, and have just begun to break even. I intend to join the forum to learn from the great traders and post my own successes/losses prior to launching and going live.
Looks to be a great forum, and I look forward to participating. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I'll try to hitch my wagon to a solid journal. Any suggestions?
