Hi gang,
Just found this site while doing some cyber surfing, Looks like the place for me. I used to participate on other trading forums, (different user name) but the unprofessional antics and negativity became more than I could stand. I've been trading part time for many years. Grinding away, no major account swings since the tech bubble. Just a steady and for the most part, upward equity curve. I hope to learn a thing or two about programming, as I have a method that I trade that would benefit from a bit of automation.

Greetings


Hi,

I'm a private trader and my name says it all.

Messed around for a number of years with swing trading while at work but work ended a little under 2 years back and I decided to make a go of day trading. As you might guess its been the most difficult easy thing I've ever done.

Seen a few sites and this one seems to suit me more than most so I'm going to start a diary here in the hope of taking myself from marginal (profitable without commissions) to where I need to be.

Cusp

I took a hiatus after having nearly a 20% drawdown last year. It was my first time trading and I got out of the markets immediately when I realized I was clueless. I read a couple of chapters in a book and I thought I had the complete grasp of what it takes to be a successful trader. However, I am glad to say that I have never blown out!


I think you have a clue. I know some clueless who've blown everything multiple times. clueless. It's easy to sit on the periphery and see how to make money.

The leverage is very attractive for certain of us. Knowing how to protect yourself from getting hammered by it seems like the highest priority. I prefer learning that with a small account.

Good trading,
Bramil

I am currently participating in a body transformation contest- grand prize will add another $7000 to my account. 9% fat loss so far in 8 weeks, 4 weeks to go. Wish me luck

Ray, congrats on the transformation.

I have never spent so much time at a desk, and my transformation is going the wrong direction. I'm currently in the San Diego area as well; just bought a bicycle off craigslist and starting to put it to use.

Jeeper,

I'm interested in the things you're trading, especially currencies, bonds, gold, oil, and natural gas. It seems all these are related to each other in one way or another.

Maybe this should be another thread, but I personally believe the Fed is setting us up for some bad inflation, trying to inflate the US out of debt. I'm looking for strategies to profit from that long term: especially 2013 and beyond.

The Fed has said that they will not raise interest rates through the end of 2014. I think they will have to before that, and I want to know, is there a best way to take advantage of a surprise rate hike?

I know I have a lot to learn, but I believe its prudent to know how to prepare for some moves within the next year.

Thanks, Bramil
