I've been a quiet reader on futures.io (formerly BMT) forum for quite a few months and now I have to state that this is the best place I've ever been to since I started my little trading career about 8 months ago.
I already learned a lot from all the experienced guys hanging around here, so thanks a lot for being a part of Big Mike's community here !
So, please keep up your fantastic work, and perhaps I can give my 2 cents to some discussions around here.
Hey Mike and fellow FX connoisseurs! Glad to become a member and see what this forum has to offer. I look forward to the valuable information and meeting others in this community. It looks unique and vastly different from other forums I've seen.
I am a software bithead and project manager by profession and have been a student of the markets for about 10 years, although more intensely over the past 4. I have traded stocks, options and emninis (ES, NQ & TF). I have not yet been successful, even though I think I am a fairly good technical analyst. It's the more important part of trading that I haven't masterd yet, but I'm still trying.
I am a TradeStation EasyLanguage indicator programmer and just finished my first NinjaTrader indicator. Fun stuff. Looking forward to writing more for NinjaTrader.
Big fan of Emini-watch.com and VSA (ala TradeGuider.com). Familiar with Market Profile. Pristine trained.
I look forward to participating in the Big Mike site!
I have been trading off and on for years. I joined this forum over a year ago as a temporary elite, but then got sidetracked. I have wanted to reply to some threads, but can't because I have not posted 10 times,, not sure how to post if not on a thread... I'll check the FAQ,
I trade mainly ES. Tried some proprietary indicators from a friend. Analyzed to death for nearly a year, then traded money as the indicators were now barely covering commissions.
Now I am trading with a guy with a small room and it is working pretty well.
I really like this forum... is there anyway I can just upgrade (pay the difference) from the "partial" elite to the full?
I've been traders futures contracts for 5 yrs, stocks and options for 10.
Never blown any accounts and unlike most traders who go looking for indicators and charts
all over the net, I looked inside, I visualized the perfect charts and indicators and like magic they began to show up
one by one. I know, "sounds a little esoteric but herd mentality is not in my genetic makeup."
