Hello Mike & members,

I started Day Trading stocks in 04. Through the years I was able to remain solvent, just barely. Now that I'm retired, more time can be devoted to learning. Yes, I have to fight my Demons, and add another (do not do this) to my list. We all travel down the road to profitability, it seems like I'm taking the long way to get there. The one thought I stick with is; I've gone this far while others have fallen, with more study and proper execution I'll make it.

Good Trading to all,

Hello Big Mike and all. I have been learning to trade Forex for several years and only recently getting close to making an income at it. Been learning to use Price Action much more. I also use RSI, MACD and an older version of BB Squeeze called Bollinger Squeeze v8. I have it for MT4, but also would like to put BBSQ (Stochastic) on my Ninja Trader charts. Does anyone have one like this? Also I don't seem to be able to download yet. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Mike and Members..

I have joined your community to basically access your tutorial vidz on MultiCharts, as I am about to attend a Forex trading course, so will need some understanding of how this software works..

Thus hopefully leading me on a more financially happy path and away from the so called Rat-Race, and the chasing of the 'below average weekly wage' syndrome..!

Hi everybody,

I am new to this site, and new to trading, trying to do my best with futures markets.

Hi all
I am hoping, one day, I will be able to provide some great insight on trading to this great site.
On this day, however, I can only offer an introduction to a trading neophyte.
Happy and successful trading to all.
