Hi Mike and the gang!

Just wanted to say Hi to everyone, as I've finally decided to join the community and created an account. I've been lurking about for a couple years now. If you ever use the Babypips forums you'll find me there.

A little bit about myself:

I started learning how to trade when I was 12, starting with equities. By the time I was 15, I was trading Forex. As a result of my interests with the markets, I am now taking Computational Finance as my degree in university.

Just the past couple of years, I have been trading 100% automated using quantitative analysis. I have developed my own algorithmic trading platform and am only now starting to use MultiCharts as an offline tool to help develop and perform periodic optimisation on trading systems. I also use Adaptrade's Market System Analyser for further Portfolio analysis.

Would love to meet some fellow algo traders and learn more.

Hi All,

First let me say thanks to Big Mike. This site is impressive and I can't imagine the time you have spent putting this together and keeping it going.

I have been trading futures full time for about 2 years now. I did stock trading for about 4 years prior.

I came across this forum doing some research on NT, as some of the things I am currently working in TS are not working out as I hoped.

Hello traders.
I trade since 2008. My mainly traded instruments are crude oil and gold and DAX when in crude and gold there is no much volatility.
And since 2011 I trade for a living. The trading is just setting me free
