First Post

Hello,
I have been trading for about 2yrs and 6 months. In that time I have groped around starting with zero knowledge to the present moment where I believe I have a solid foundation of market understanding based on Market Profile, cumulative delta, and how price reacts to buying and selling at key levels.

I have not been an active participant due to my all consuming passion with staring at the markets and I find it distracting now chasing up new ideas when Im happy with the path Im on.

My motivation for this post is just to lend my support to Aragorn in the heated debate that developed about the JPJ Trade room. I also have been in the room for a month. The reason I joined is I need a trade mentor. I need to see how a seasoned pro handles the pressure of a trade real time, how he manages the trade, the context in which he will not take trades or lighten his trade. All this is invaluable to me as I trade alone. No one else I have checked out including L2ST, Fulcrum Trader, while both excellent do not trade live and break it down like JP does.

I resommend any trader who trades alone although they may be competent and have a track record would still benefit from seeing a seasoned pro trade.

In short JP is the best 'real' trader in an internet full of sharks that I have come across.

I'm New To BMT Forum

Hi Everyone!

I was encouraged to tell everyone that I'm new to futures.io (formerly BMT) Forum.
Not sure if I'm even doing this post correctly.
I guess I'll see.

I recently started playing with NinjaTrader with a simulation account.
I interface this account with my Interactive Brokers paper trading account.
I'm currently searching for that "Special" automated trading strategy.
I have one strategy that made money, but that was when the Dow was up 300 points.
I need to find a strategy that makes money under all conditions ... if one exists.
I currently trade ES.

I'm an electrical engineer that works for Chrysler and I have about 13 years of trading experience.

Take care,
Phoenix7344

Greetings Traders,
I stumbled on here today while searching for something else.
I began trading in 1999.
It was not until last winter that I actualy began to have some success.
I have a couple more weeks of work left and then will be back at my screen, my plan is to not go back next summer but ,continue trading.
I really do love this business.
I know what it is like to get ground up like hamburger in a market.
It can really do a number on you emotionaly physicaly and of course can bleed ya dry financialy.
For those of you who are struggling I feel your pain , Im sure I aint tellin ya nothing you already know but I find it is good to have fellowship with other traders.
So hopefully I can be a member here and put something in.

Thanks
Kevv

that is just great.

how about taking some screen shots and show everyone here, so we all can enjoy seeing your winning setups and congrat you for your continuous success.

but do not feel obliged to, ok, if you do not feel comfortable to do so?

just thought, if you can post some screen shots, it would save you lots of verbalizing.

congrats
