Hello everyone, I am from Bulgaria and I trade futures and stocks. I consider myself a beginner although I trade for 8 years because there is always a lot to learn that I do not know. I am a swing and position trader with average holding period of 4 days. I risk no more than 5% of my capital on each trade and I never average up or down.
My name is Marvin and I am new here. Have been day trading for almost a year now. I use lightspeed and TOS platforms. Even though I have lost some money but my results are encouraging. Hope to learn from many experienced traders here.
i am zz, chinese wish to communicate with you and exchange method of trading.
i am a newbee just begin to trade for 5 month. i have found in which trend i can earn money, and in which i lose money. but the opportunity of real trading for me is less than i need. so in front of me, a big challenge. i use trendline, EMA Fibo, fundamentally candle chart.
I've tried just about every other trading method on the planet - all to no avail. I've lost money, I've made money, but nothing consistent enough to feel comfortable. I look forward to learning and contributing in this wonderful forum.

Just introducing myself. I will be contributing to this forum from now on.
Been trading on and off for 6 years. Sometimes real money sometimes just a sim. In September 2012 I decided the trading bug isnít going away. In fact it became more intense. I decided that this is what I want to do with my life started to take it serious with the goal of becoming a Prop Trader by 2014. I currently have my eyes set on Propex (Prop Firm) in Australia or Top Step Trader.
Every day I trade for 6-7 hours straight. I live in Australia so I get to keep my day job and trade during the night. I trade the US Bonds Market ZN, ZB, ZF during the Euro Session and US Session. I trade mostly the Zn (10 year T Note) and ZB (30 Ė T Note).
I am a pure price action trader focusing 90% on the order flow and 10% on charts. My charts are used just to get past major support and resistance levels that is it. The rest of my trading strategy is to look at THE NOW MOMENT. I track SIZE and see how price reacts to size. I also look for the PAIN, I want to know where the pain is in the levels and where traders are going to puke and new money comes in. I look for too many shorts to buy and too many longs to sell. The trading platform I use is Ninja Trader and Jigsaw Trader Depth of Market (Plugin for Ninja).
I can say without a doubt learning to trade is a rocky road and it will give you every reason to give up. But with the right information and knowing what to look for, and working your ASS OFF every single day you can make it happen. The clue to what to learn is to look at Prop Trading Firms and model their training around your own personal training. They take beginners and make the full time consistently profitable traders in 1 year. So to all those people thinking about giving up. Look at the prop shops and do what they are doing.
In no way am I an expert and I will always be a student of the market. But i believe I have started to develop consistency and will soon by applying for Top Step Trader to get funded. I just have a few more hurdles to jump before i do that.
I might start a trading journal on here.
Thanks for the read.
