I have been trading for several years now and probably like a few others tried a number of systems, siignals and software, some good, most hopeless. It was not until I decided to focus and learn about a few key technical indicators that my trading started to take shape. I have a day job which takes a lot of my time, however I have reached a position wherebye I no longer need to work and I am very keen to commence trading full time. I am endeavouring to make a consistent 40 -50+ pips a day, once I reach that point I will be all systems go, I will not terminate employment until that goal is achieved though(consistency being the key). So if any-one has shared wisdom I would welcome the guidance.
Hello All. I'm a little different than most traders in that I blew up several trading accounts being stubborn -- I don't like to take losses! Consequently, I have taken some heavy losses over the years. My technique is satisfactory -- it appears that no matter what strategy I use I manage to make some money. Hence, I ;m unable to hold on to it. Currently I sell credits spreads and been doing so for quite some time now. However, last year I signed up for day trading classes. I looked into day trading years ago but settle for selling options instead. This year 2013, I will get my mind right and learn to day trade. Hopefully, I can learn to cut my losses early. To be honest, that's why I join this forum -- maybe I can run upon a thread that can help me with my weakness. And, the same time I can contribute to others about why I unable to pull the plug on a trade. Thanks for listening!
Hello and greetings to the administrator and the members of that forum.
I am a small trader who is trying to learn and I think that this forum will help me. Thank you for accepting me and good luck to all.
The following user says Thank You to ciclone for this post:
I'm a small trader who likes it when prices fall because it feels like a sale. I put up a question in one of the sub-forums that also describes my tentative thinking. (Not sure if it's the right sub-forum though -- I put it in the IB platform sub-forum with the title "questions about IB margin IRAs")
My other interests include weightlifting and tough religious questions (you can always PM me )
