Hello everyone,

I am as new as it gets to all this but eager to learn. This is the first time I have actually joined and participated in any forum. I am here to get advice from anyone who is willing to answer my questions.

I read a thread on Nadex, it was interesting to say the least. I did not find the answer I was looking for... This is probably the wrong place to ask this but since I have never actually written in a forum I will just do it and look green which I am.

I read on the CFTC site that NADEX is the only legal place for US people to do Binary Options, but this just can not be possible since I did not find a single person here using them?

I have not traded ever before, I have been researching this way of making or loosing money for a couple of weeks now. I have found so much conflicting information at every turn.

It seems like everyone has there own way of doing things and I am trying to figure out what is the best way. If anyone reads this please feel free to let me what you think is the best place and system.

Anyway thanks ahead of time and have a wonderful week end...

i am daniel 32years from germany i live in niedersachsen (lower saxory) between bremen and hannover.

until today the stock marked it the only marked i entered with real cash. and this on very small scale. first contact with marked was with cfd demo accounts. but back then and now i am aware that i have not the knowledge to buy more than some spare shares to get a feeling for a marked.

thats about 4 years ago, and iam still fascinated in trading. but it is daytrading what got my attention. iam looking to educate myself to venture at the future marked.

greetings from germany. have a nice evening and a sucessfull week

Good day,

I am an intermediate level trader and have just recently become interested in using NinjaTrader after having used MetaStock for a number of years.

I look forward to reviewing the trading information stored in the archives on this site.

Thank you !

Hi all! Been on the site for a few years, but never took the time to introduce myself or participate very actively. But love the information and knowledge of traders here, and learning more here than anywhere else. Have been trading various instruments from stocks, etf's, forex, to futures for almost 5 years now, but now approaching it seriously as a business to move into full time. I'm in the NYC area, trading CL discretionary using acd, fibs, s/r, pa, and would love to meet fellow traders in the area.

Greetings Everyone -

I just noticed this Introductory area...

Full time Futures trader located in sunny California; using the Ninjatrader platform to trade the Futures market - mainly Equities (ES, NQ, YM and TF), CL and a couple of the Currencies - 6E and DX.

Over the past few years have been working extensively on automated Ninja Strategies and have found this forum to be a valuable resource - thank you...!

If anyone would like to have an additional person to share trading ideas with (particularly in the area of automated Ninja Strategies trading Futures); please feel free to shoot me an email.

Best -

- Charles

This looks like a good forum!

After over 23 years of on & off trading ... I'm still at the same level of consistency. [Not Good!]

The first year I tried my hand at trading rolling stocks. In the first 8 months I was up over $20K on an initial account of $10K. Then I let greed take over and it almost wiped out the account. Now that same account is less than $9K.

I need to learn better money management skills and better trading strategies. I'm leaning more towards trading Forex as well.

I actually found this forum as I was doing a google search on " Michael Paul Kanuika". I was dumb enough to buy into his offer about 5 years ago. Total waste of $3K!

I'm new to this forum. Seems like a good place so i joined up.
Been trading for 4+ years and have yet to get consitancy.
Been using simple SR with what I guess you could call momentum.

I just read someone say this in one of the threads, "Set a target and hold till you get it, if price begins to stall around a counter entry then let that be your early exit. Not some arbitrary 2R or 400 dollar target."

Might be obvious to others but for me, the lightbulb went on.
I probably have some more blanks that need filling. My goal is to fill em and make some profits along the way.
