Hi, Every Body

My name is Alex, I have been trading for stocks for a few years, I plan to trade ES, now I am just trading SIM. I learned a lot of good stuff from this forum, thanks a lot great guys for posting indicators and templates, especially for big mike's Money Managements. The reason I didn't post before is my bad english, but in order to improve myself and contribute a little to the forum, I will post my ES trading journal and my trading template.

Hi, I have been lurking for a few days after a mate recommended this site. No doubt, its prety cool. So will be doing my best to contribute and share. Been trading now for about 7 years, and have recently switched over to Ninjatrader, trading the YM. So hopefully I'll also be doing some learning from the Ninja pro's....

Hi all

Hi all traders

I am just starting with trading, so have no stories about blewing my account

As I don't know much about trading yet I'll definitely need to learn a lot, but that's why I am here. I may not be very helpful at the beginning to others but can always serve providing feedback and fresh ideas.

I am based in London, UK and at the moment I am learning to trade stocks at FTSE 350. Due to time constraints and other responsibilities I only do End-Of-Day trading. I am interested in spread betting (tax free and my trading platform of choice is NinjaTrader (currently testing with free Yahoo feed)

Big Mike: I must also admit I am extremely impressed by the forum you created - I couldn't believe it is only 2 months old!
Great job!

Greeting to you all and happy trading

Hello there,

I'm glad to join this forum and I hope to learn some because I've been unsuccessful for so many years.
