I am in the stock market since long but since my day time job I could not concentrate much on trading. Now I am retired and have sufficient time and experience I want to do the thing which I like Most. That is trading.
similarly, blew up accounts in 2007, since, have read tons of books, memeberships in forums and rooms, online courses, margin calls again.
After all, I understood that 50% of trading is psychology. Until you get right attitude towards trading and get knowledge about your emotions, you are on your way to the next "margin call".
Since 2010 April, working well.
really like being a part of this community. Have learned a great deal just by reading all the good input found here. I'm looking to see if anyone is familiar with the Gann Square of Nine indicator found in the ninja forum. I can't get those to download into ninja 7 was just wondering if anyone knows of where I could find it for ninja 7 users. Thanks Big Mike for supplying us with such a great and useful website.
I've worked on and off with the internet since 1995 with a couple years off in the late 00s when I played professional online poker for about 3Ĺ years.
Before the dot.com crash I had some options in the company where I then worked and I cashed out on those to get close to $500,000 which I then placed in other IT companies and subsequently went down in flames. Like so many others I thought that stocks were easy and always went upwards.
Now a decade later I'm curious to back into the markets somehow and this time I'm a bit interested in Forex. I have read some and watched a lot of instruction materials from Steve Nison, Chris Lori, Martin Pring and others and now I feel I'm getting the grasp on some basic tools. I'm currently struggling a bit though on how to combine the separate tools into a working toolbox.
I've learned a bit about MT4 and also Ninjatrader (I do know C#) and currently only trading demo apart from a tiny sum I have on Etoro copytrader just for the giggles.
This seems to be a great community and I hope to be a part of it.

The following user says Thank You to kosar for this post:
I'm a 31 year old former broker who worked for a clearing house who recently screwed the futures business. I had an account in the early 00's that I punted around and never really made anything out of it. I'm not giving this a go full time and having trouble admitting when Iím wrong and taking a loss. I enjoy this site as it's a form of interaction with others doing the same. I mostly trade CL but will trade the metals and CC's if I see an opening. I hope Iím around long enough to get to know some of the big guys on this site. Good luck to all.
