I have 4 yrs futures trading experience in my home country, Taiwan.
I started to expand my trades globally since last year.
futures.io (formerly BMT) is really a great forum that I gain much info. which I could not gain from elsewhere.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
Hi have joined and decided to introduce myself. Have been trading for about a year now, spread betting index's mainly, using ProRealTime via ig. Was doing quite well, until i blew up my account, i'm told that's standard for new traders. I'd put together a reversion back to mean strategy using a martingale set up. During the majority of ranges this made lots of money. However, on a huge swing, went against me badly and I gave back all my winnings and more. Hindsight is a vicious lesson to learn. It was a worthwhile lesson though, my over confidence was such that if i hadn't of lost then, I would have lost at some point, with the possibility of the losses being higher than they were.
Anyway, I am now trading off fibo lines and have customised a nice little indicator that automatically and dynamically gives the fib lines of 38.2% & 61.8% and my own of 25% & 75%, as well as the 50% level, high/low of day. No more clicking through charts trying to find swing highs and lows :-). So i can use any time frame under a day and have these levels (which are the same on every time frame chart). I'd like to find other like minded traders who'll test this indicator (programmed using Pro-RealTime / ig index) and who'll give me suggestions with marrying it up with some form of trend indicator - anything but moving averages; which i can't stand, hate curves on my chart, ridiculous hmm.
I was thinking of 'supertrend' indicator, and currently looking at ways to combine different time frame views of this indicator in the 1 timeframe chart. Not found yet. I like to see all the information i need on one chart.
Hi Mike, sorry to get back to you so late. I was busy with work and some family issues and left catching up on your site for a while. I am from Singapore and I primarily trade the emini Russell 2000 futures for about 3+ years. As with most traders, my results are not consistent and I am still on my search for the holy grail. Hopefully I could contribute and learn as well from your community. Thanks for setting up a site like these for sharing among like-minded people.
