I have been trading equities for around 3 years now. I am thinking about switching to futures and commodities. I have been very busy in the past, but I hope I will have more time now to contribute to this site.
Thank you Mike for taking your time to create this forum.

Aloha everyone, I am Jesse. After going through few threads in this form, I found some useful information. I also like Big Mike's intention to do good to the community which has always been at the core of my heart (to give back to the community). Since I believe in that and also learning from mistakes, thought I would register and learn and share my knowledge in this forum. Thank you and wish everyone the best!

Reason: Fix sentence
I'm Din. 4 years ago after 6 months on demo account I started live with a micro account. The setup was fairly simple. MA's, RSI and Stoch on daily TF. The trades were scattered yet modestly profitable.
Then a friend came into my trading life with indies and strategies. I felt my strategy was inferior because I was overwhelmed with the new supposedly pro indies and strategies. From that time onwards trading was a roller coaster. For more than 2 years I was dizzy from the endless roller-coasting.
The 4th year i decided to regroup. I trawled the net for free education. Guess what?
Whatever strategy, lagging or not, if it is valid, it profits. The only difference is the number of pips at entry point. Pure price action may enter early than those with indies. If the setup is valid it profits.
Now I have cooled off somehow. Profits are showing modestly. Not much but very inspirational.
In a nutshell currency trading is an investment not a get rich scheme. Go slow but surely.
The chart is your playing field. Play it to your ability. Losses is part of the game. Not all depends on pure analysis or fundamentals. Sometime gut feelings do pays off.
It is just about you. It is just about you and the risk. You versus risk. To minimize the risk you need knowledge.

As elaborated in my personal blog (besttrader.org), I have been dedicating myself for evolving as a trader with the intention of becoming a professional day trader with constant stable income.
I believe in everlasting improvement, every day one has the capacity to become better.
This is the inevitable path to success in the trading business, in my view.
I decided to use the nickname ‘BestTrader’ since this is the aspiration that will always lead me forward.
I have found the highest potential for profit, and the most interest, in discretionary trading, basing my view of the market and decision making on volume profiling and order flow.
My main teacher and inspiration is Kam Dhadwar of L2ST.co.uk , whom I recommend deeply.
I have gained experience of over 2 years, progressing carefully and dedicatedly, combining periods of sim trading and live trading.
As a tool for my improvement and helping others, I publish all my trades and thoughts on my blog, with the belief that sharing and transparency are powerful motivators and movers in our world.
I love big mike's forum, since it’s a crossroad for many like-minded traders, heading towards a common goal. Trading from home need not be a lonely business…
Wish you all great success!
