I am from Germany, 41, and had some success with newstrading although not with scalping (only partly with renko). Interested in Options, want to try this later. For now i am starting again with newstrading.
I am an electrical technologist & spent most of my working life at that career. Retired early & started a small business which I have recently wrapped up.
Would like to re-invent myself again as a trader. Have spent the last year mainly paper trading to try and find my style. Have taken a number of educational programs to date, but I am still struggling. Hey if it was easy everyone would be doing it. Currently looking at incorporating volume and order flow into my trading. I am fortunate in that I can devote my full time to trading and education.
Hey fellow marketeers, just joined up after reading the intro and philosphy behind the group and it sounds like a great place to hang. First started trading options with very little success in 08' and did a bit of FOREX thru 09'-10' - 2011 I got back into it with IBD and long term investments, last year some more advanced courses on options and just started day trading. Left the 8-5 grind after 25 years of Industrial Electronics to do this full-time. Not wealthy just yet, but having a great time getting there
Hi, thank you for a very good forum!
I am an retired engineer, who try to make ends meet through trading the ABC and Gartley patterns.
I am using the Multichart platform and am looking to implement these patterns into my indicators.
I have developed a nice system with the following results. (See below) The system looks nice, but I want to code it into tradestation because I did everything by hand. I hired a programmer so I can backtest further and verify everything. The problem is that I don't own tradeststion. I am thinking 2000i, does anyone have a source? I heard you can buy it overseas.
