Hello Mike and Everyone !

I started trading roughly 5 years ago with spreadbetting first then I opened my futures AC and used InvestorRT for a year then I met with SierraChart and tried to find opinions about SC and came across (formerly BMT) first time. The reviews were great so I'm with SC more than a year now and coming back to (formerly BMT) since then. I got already SO MUCH out of (formerly BMT) that I felt to become an elite member is a minimum.
Obviously I have issues like everybody else but mine was so bad / fear to put on a trade / ... and then I saw @liquidcci 's signature and something clicked.

Here is a video /1st part/ which is very similar for me.

With respect...

Hi all,

Beginner here. I am a software developer with limited trading experience. I will probably start off just scouring the forums for recommended reading before deciding what I will want to trade.

Hello Mike,
I do algorithmic trading with NinjaTrader. The idea, programming in C #, I do. On my site (algotrader it) there are other details. Sorry for the English, but I use Google for translation.

Hi Guys

I have recently ventured into the territory of futures and more specifically have started to explore volume and market profiles, so I thought it is a great idea to join this community to learn and contribute....I have been trading Forex for 3 years purely on price action and have been member of James16 community another fantastic group (still new here but starting to see this forum and community is also a high quality one).

Having a full time job and a 9 months old boy does not make trading life easy but I guess it is down to focus and discipline.

Anyway good to be here

Thanks for the invitation. I have been in the markets for 5 years and a trader for 2. I am currently a member of an investment forum but am interested in interacting with traders. I primarily trade sector etfs based upon fundamentals, news, and sentiment. I like to describe myself as a 'mean reversion' trader. I have had good success at this over the last two years. I look forward to sharing ideas with all.

Hi everyone

my name is James and I started day trading futures about 2 years ago. I've been doing much research on several instruments and getting an idea on how they trade. I trade in simulated mode only and plan to continue to trade that way until I'm sure that I'm ready to go live with a hard rock trading plan and consistent profits and a manageble risk strategy.

Several Big Mike users recommended that I join this forum to check out specific trading journals so that I can understand what good journals have.
