Hello fellow Traders!

I'm a trader who scalps the ES and ZN. Been trading the S & P 500 since 1992(full time just recently)...I recall seeing the S& P 500 at 444.00 and wondering if it would go much higher...and watched it climb to 1500 in 2000...what a ride up! Back when I started I phoned in orders, got ticket numbers, and waited (and waited) for fills.

I switched to the ES when it was created and I'm still most appreciative of the lightning fast order entry we now enjoy. Having NinjaTrader do all the target(s) and stop(s) placement with one click still amazes me...and yes, I love it when I hear...TARGET FILLED !

I lost my obligitory $10,000.00 trading account in the 90s and survived it...learning a lot along the way.

Glad to be on board here with Big Mike and the rest of you Traders...and hope to share and learn from this great Community.

I wish us all...

GOOD TRADING !

Hi,
I have been trading stocks and options for about 12 years, now mainly Forex since 4 years. Currently wanting to switch from Mt4 to NT, and maybe trade the CME FX Micros and some Minis instead. A bit burned out recently, I do this fulltime. Glad to have found this forum. Any questions or comments : just ask or PM me anytime. Good luck and all the best to all members !

I am The Rumpled One.

I see that some people here have seen my work.

Please DO NOT POST my code here. Most people know where I post my code and if you don't that's what google is for.

I have been banned from many forums because I am a threat to their cashflow.

Advertisers don't like it when I tell the truth about trading and expose how they cheat you, the trader.

Many call me a SCAMMER and a SPAMMER. But where's the scam when you can download my indicators for free.

Others don't like it that people like what I do and sometimes send me a gift of donation. I show my thanks by sending them more indicators. They call that selling. Well, if it is selling, then I must be crazy because a $50 donation in 2008 got you over 340 indicators. That means you paid $0.15 per indicator!! So far in 2009, there are over 200 indicators in the "thank you" zip file.

Some forums make up rules on the fly and then ban me for violating their rules.

I hope this forum gives me a fair chance.

Thank you.

2009.09.10 EDIT:

Contrary to some peoples' opinion, I am not here to PICK A FIGHT. However, if someone takes a shot at me, do not expect me to back down. Whatever I post, it will be THE TRUTH that I can back up with FACTS AND/OR FIGURES whether it's about trading or not.

Hey TRO... I remember you from the TS Forum... looks like you are using MT4 now... glad you showed up here... sorry it seems to have been a negative experience... actually there is NO cash flow here and many different types are welcomed... take care.

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.

You can find some more information about me in my profile.

Good hunting!
Mike
