Hi all,

I just discovered bigmiketrading.com few days ago and I think it really makes a difference compared to others trading sites. This is the reason why I signed up.

I have been trading since 2003 in and out (sometimes many months without entering the market).

I started with Forex and I quickly learned that Forex brokers are making your probability of succeed in this business even smaller. I soon change the Forex for futures and started with currency futures where at least you trade in an organized market and you are only cheated by the market (well I know that no broker is not your friend anyway).

I haven't achieved consistency neither in the time doing the trading nor in the profits. Now, I am committed to be consistent on my dedication to the trading and hopefully achieve the profits consistency that allows me what I always wanted: to live wealthy from the trading.

Hope we can do it together!!

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.

I deleted your phone # --- you really, really don't want to post your phone number in a public forum.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hello and GLAD to Join your team!!!!!

Hey Mike and fellow Money Makers:

I have been trading futures for the past 4 years and have loved the general outcome of my performance. I have since started my C++ education and wish to continue on track with development due to the fact that I believe my ideas will benefit the community and others in the industry. I already have the discipline and structure to do my daily deeds and wish to share my experiences and hope to obtain feedback from fellow traders that can expand upon my ideas and to spark new and insightful trading creations. I am happy to be here and hope we can work together to obtain the same goals.

Thanks,

KEVIN

Hello

Hello Traders,

I'm new on this forum. I trade FX since 2007 ( stocks market since 2005 ), of course i blow up couple accounts as a beginner.
I trade FX on daily charts using pure price action ( support/resistance levels and candlestick patterns ), but i'm looking for a daytrade strategy/system. My acquaintance told me about BigMike forum. He's trading Perrys'g method with good results
I hope to find new trading friends here :-)
Greetings from Poland.

Regards
Borek
