I'm French and I'm trying to learn the rules of trading since 2009.
I started earning money by working anyhow.
After I started to lose and there it was painful.
Like many from there I quickly cut my gagantes postions and let run my losing positions, I could not bear the loss, so I was waiting for the miracle to happen. So I made the biggest losses.
I worked hard to develop an effective system and I tested this system in virtual and it went well. When I came back to live trading, I had good weeks, then lower and failure "does not make losses" is back.
I started not to cut my losing positions. I realized that my problem is not to learn the technique of trading, but to psychological work and it is very difficult. For the moment, I do not.
I've been lurking around here for quite some time. My previous background has been military. I started paper trading back in December 2012. In the last year I’ve been able to sift through all the garbage out there on the web, sad stories, tried 10 different strategies, and even sought the holy grail of trading. I’ve been bouncing back and forth from paper trading to live trading. Currently I’m trading live. I haven’t had to pay any major tuition yet other than my education which hasn’t really cost me that much. I’m involved in a mentoring group. I am a disciplined day trader focused on scalping and pattern recognition (the more times I say it, it becomes true). I typically trade all tick/time frames, but mostly the shorter ones. I use Ninja Trader 7 as my platform. The services I use are Kinetick(Data), IB (broker), and Trade the News Futures and Forex squawk(News). My primary trading vehicles are the NQ and ES. I'm looking forward to chatting with some of you.
Have a great day!

Thanks for this forum. I am picking up some useful info here. I have been sim trading TF for about 1 1/2 months now and sometimes feel like I'm going backwards. I am just beginning to get a feel for price movement. I am having trouble settling on a methodology for set ups. Hopefully it will come to me soon.

Thanks: 1 given,
New to multicharts and not a programmer so finding it hard.
I have a trading methodology I am trying on the DAX in the evening as I am in Melbourne Australia 4pm to midnight is a good trading time for me as I work during the day. However doing it manually on a 1 hour or 15 min chart, I get distracted and miss a trade. So I am hoping that automated trading with maybe alarms so I can still watch it will help.
