hope your personal conviction and personal trading style will bring you even more bacon together with other bread and butter as well....
for some other traders like myself, trigger point to get in, is considered equally important as other significant factors in trading, such as.... the personal trading plan, the cumulative stats, the trading strategy, the entry and exit points and lastly the reward/risk management plan....
but if you wish to consider the entry point as most important factor in trading.... that is alright too.... for you are the master of your own ship.... and your bottom line will be the only living proof....
I am new to this forum and recently downloaded NT7.
I am no veteran in trading, but I have some experience. Prior to findning NT7, I coded my own software in C#, where I implemented my own strategy. Basically, it was a market scanner that gave buy signals and sell signals to those stocks in my portfolio. Now that I have found NT7, I am gonna take this to a whole new level. As if my wife was'nt tired of me talking about this before .
So, I live in the south of sweden, 34 years old, recently married.
My goal is to find the simplest form of strategy that will yield a >1.8 profit factor. And after reading Van Tharps thoughts about curve fitting, I have to do this without optimization.
I am sure I will find a lot of useful information on this forum.
Should I, from time to time ask a stupid question, bare with me, as I am still learning.
hey there, this is my first time as a member of a forum as I found most of them to be places where any thing positive means you are a vendor and anything negative you are slated as a loser, however I found that after looking at Big mikes that the community here seems to be a nicer bunch of people.
I have been trading now with consistent results for 2 years and before that was a big loser for 7 years,, I trade the ES mainly and look forward sharing my experiences.
I am 48 years Old and live in the UK where I trade from home, been a hard slog I have to say and spent way to much money, but thanks to some good friends and a good mentor I found what worked for me..

are you sort of an extension of a fourth party vendorism?
esharris, welcome to bg
yes, by all means, when you are prompt and ready, pls do share your trading experiences with us.
whether you are an extension of a vendorship or not, it really does not matter in trading; cause it is the bottom line that you can show us.... that really proves if or when your trading arsenals are profitable for whatever reasons....
at any rate welcome to bg and have fun while trading....
