Just joined today. Found forum through searching for links to Al Brooks' new book. Found a nice thread that I hope to learn from. Beginning trader who is just starting the journey and enjoying learning. Hope to be able to contribute as I am able to.

I look forward to sharing here as I have seen some great stuff posted here... So with that... ROCK and ROLL!!!
HI -- I'm brand new to this forum today -- just started looking around, but I like it already. It looks like there are lots of great ideas being exchanged, and I especially like the positive and helpful tone of the posts.
I'm a fairly new futures trader, after many years of longer-term equities investing -- been actively trading futures for about a year now -- biggest challenge is discipline and patience, like most beginning traders.
I'm looking forward to participating in the forum and learning from more experienced traders.
I was doing some research on Al Brooks and came across your forum, read some great posts from your members and decided to join. I have been trading for a year now and am always looking for great information/knowledge from my fellow traders to better my own trading. I look forward to reading through the discussions on this forum and contributing as much as possible.

I've been trading futures for about 3 years. I mianly trade ES and YG and sometimes US, EC,QM and QN. My past weakness was the tendency to take small profits but holding on to the losers for too long. But, I am getting much better these days and green about 4 out of 5 days.
Thanks for the open forum and the opportunity to learn from other traders. ShokoH

Hi Mike and All,
I've been trading for 3 years and just love just concentrating on the futures. In and out, and holding nothing by the end of the trading day.
I've started with the ES and now expanded to currencies and gold. Looking forward to being part of your great team.
