Hi. I just started looking into trading. A friend helped me get started and gave me some reading material to go over. I haven't made any actual trades yet, but while experimenting with the demo I've seen how easy it is to make money, and also how easy it is to lose money. I have a lot to learn about this and I've been told that this site has a lot of great information.

welcome to bg

do not let anyone mislead you, friend.

trading is not easy at all. but it is much easier to be a broker, or a broker associate.

are your friend a broker or a broker associate at all?

have fun, there are many here who would be happy to help, just ask.

most importantly, just go ahead with sim mode, UNTIL YOU CAN PROVE TO YOURSELF THAT YOU CAN DO IT WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED TO TRADE YOUR SETUP.

have fun learning.

welcome 325trader

do you speak with tongue in cheek, when you said--

....but this one needs tons of psychic guts, believe me!....?

and most here can also guarantee that successful traders on board here....

DO NOT TRADE ON PSYCHIC GUTS, or WHATEVER THAT IS NOT ON OUR SCREEN....

most trade only on our personally worked out trading plan which differs from a trader to another trader.

and you would need to work out your own trading plan. you need to anyway, before even going on with sim mode, ok?

cheers and have fun.

I didn't mean to imply that trading was easy, but more referring to how fast things move. Sometimes I might make a trade and think "Wow. I just made $100 in 3 minutes." and other times I may think "Whoa, I just lost $250 in 30 seconds.". I definitely have a lot more to learn about reading the signs and placing stops, and I'll be sticking to the sim until I have a better understanding of everything.

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.
