I am glad to join this forum. I did spend a lot of time in a demo account and I blew some money on forex. It seems so hard to learn. I would like to learn it and be a smart trader like the few who are somewhere out there.

Hello Everyone,
First off, glad to see so many traders riding the roller coaster to successful trading. It is tough to throw out any profound nuggets of trading expertise, considering I have only been enthralled for a year. Say nothing of the fact that the few do's and don'ts that I have discovered are surely written somewhere in this amazing repository. I have blown up one account and I am now working on my second. It is going much better than the first, but I am still battling the emotion monkey. I guess I love watching a bad trade get worse and it's even more fun remembering what I told myself each time I should get out. "Well, it HAS to turn now...I mean this is ridiculous."

Well, as I make my way through the forums I hope to bring some light in here and there, but it will be tough to give back half as much as what's available.

I'll leave with a saying that I came up with when I first started looking into options.

"Call me up, don't Put me down."

Thank you.

Hi - I have been trading for some time now. The future is automated systems for the likes of myself who struggle with emotion and discipline. I look forward to helping create real systems that work.

Hello everyone

Hi everyone,

Thanks to Mike. I have traded futures for about 4 years now. Blew up once but otherwise done OK. I work in IT and recently worked on the trading news sentiment site Sentimize which was a real eye opener. A great site/company which rates the sentiment of news feeds around the world for traders.

I've been out of the market for the last few months, as was scared off by the eurozone issues. I hope to get back into it quite strongly in the new year.
