Hey Welcome, I am new to this forum too, just posted above you.

I used to work as a consultant near Graz, in Uebelbach, very nice area. I have the same goal you do, which is making a living from trading. I am making good progress but not quite there yet after a few months of practicing.
Anyways feel free to skype me at renoschmitt if you want chat about trading. I am a futures guy but interested in FX too, just taking it one step at a time

Hey Reno, I also prefer the futures market although I do trade stocks and options as well. I would like to chat sometime with you on Skype about the futures you trade, when you get a chance. I go by Hogheaven1 on Skype. Thanks and good trading!

Hi, I am pleased to be joining a like minded crowd. Hopefully some of you also enjoy "Five Finger Death Punch"? I have been teaching myself trading forex and futures for the last 8 years. I have had 3 small accounts each of which I managed to make a few dollars but my efforts have been on and off. I have now reached a point where I must pursue my dream of becoming a full time trader. I have been led much by the teachings of Joe Ross, a trading style that makes much sence to me. I have managed to increase an account by about a third of the initial deposit using just options on futures after doing an options trading course through Joe Ross trading educators. I think I am ready to start a larger account through Tradestation to trade futures and options on futures as well as having a smaller account with FXpro to trade forex. Thanks for having me as a member.

Wow, nice forum here Big Mike

It is really refreshing to find a trading forum that does not have all the guys and girls just slinging mud at each other. Good to have people working together and helping one another out in what must be one of the toughest and least understood careers in the world.

I trade the Ultra Bond with Patak Trading Partners.

Recently joined, looking forward to being a part of the (formerly BMT) community.

I primarily trade options on indices (RUT mainly). Main platform is Think or Swim, just started getting acquainted with Trade Station as a backup.

I'm new here


I'm Michael, I'm Swiss but I live in France. I began to study the trading last year and I realized that it is difficult to make a profit consistently.
This forum is very interesting and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your contributions.

See you soon,


PS: be indulgent with my ability to express myself in English.

Hello from Ric

Hello I am Richard,

Have been trading for few years now. Came across this forum via some link and seems a nice enough place to learn new stuff and fine tune the tough business of trading.
