Hello everyone!

I'm new to this forum but I've been lurking for a while and I like the community you have growing here.

I'm a trader from Toronto. I trade US and Canadian equities intraday, as well as spot forex.

I enjoy helping people with trading mechanics, as well as trading psychology. I mostly do this since it helps reinforce and refine my own thoughts on trading, as staying disciplined and consistent is by far the most important part of doing this professionally.

I even put together a little site that holds a collection of my thoughts on trading psychology. I was going to link it here but I'm not sure how you guys treat such shameless plugs (it's non-commercial in any case.)

Looking forward to interacting with the forum!

Hello, MY trailing stops are a magnet to the market. If I could trade opposite of what I actully do I'd be rich and teaching others. Instead I as everyone else is trying to make sense of it all and profit a bit from my toiling around in the market

NT problem for new trader

Hi everyone,

I have only been trading for less than 7 months and I was doing that on my Mac. I recently purchased an HP PC desktop because I realize most trading platforms/software do not work so well on Mac.

Unfortunately, my Windows 8 (which I use in Desktop mode because I do not like the Tile Mode) is not responding well to any 3rd party software. The alert/sound files will not work in any of the platforms I have tried: Ninja Trader, TradeStation, etc.

I've spent hours on the phone with tech support and they could not find the problem. I called HP and they said the problem is with the 3rd party software not being updated to handle Windows 8.

It's very frustrating to buy a new computer in order to trade and then the platforms don't work properly because of Windows 8 (I regret buying Windows 8 now). I'm taking my computer back to Best Buy to have the Geek Squad try to remedy this problem (if it even can be).

Has anyone heard of this happening to anyone sound alerts in 3rd party apps/platforms in Windows 8?

Thanks! Great site!

Hello Mikers..

Hi. Signed here few days ago.
Hope to find nice people to discuss views and share knowledge.

Started with trading in the late 90is with Stocks then had a pause and started again 4 years ago.
Again with stocks/pinks but moved fast to Forex. I scalp, but like it more and more to swing trade H1-D1

Read ya..
