Thanks: 25 given,
Without a doubt, this is probably one of the hardest things to learn. I am glad that I am part of this forum and I look forward to reading great posts from all types of traders. Is a lonely career and a forum like Big Mikes creates a community of professionals sharing the same passion and helping each other.
I am new to this forum and will be trying to be more active on it.
Best of luck to all !
I've been trading futures for about 4 years - while working full time - I've found futures.io (formerly BMT) to be a great resource and I'm anxious to learn more. I now use a 3rd party set of indicators from BBTrades.com which are great. I too, like BM blew out two accounts before I became committed to finding success. Looking forward to associating with others at futures.io (formerly BMT). - Atticus
Bloomberg TV on cable or satellite sometimes has special newscasts about traders who make a living trading. Might be a good place to check out other traders making money, and Youtube has some vids of these shows.
I would like to thank you all for the very interesting Forum. I am rather new to trading and I am trying hard to pick up as much as possible in as little time as possible (though without being in any rush). Although I have been reading for several months I only started paper trading a month ago. I tried different things but I soon realised that price action is probably the most suitable one for me. I am also looking to find a course not because I believe I will learn something special or secret, not already available for free elsewhere, but mostly because I will find a lot of good concentrated information presented in a structured/ organised way. So I guess I will increase my chances of learning faster. Once I am confident I have a descent strategy and that my plan, journal, risk and money management are in place and working well,...I shall go live .
I've had a passion for futures trading for quite some time but have just recently been able to free up my mornings to trade 4 out of 5 days per week. I'm currently in two trading rooms (traded IT web support for access) but am not seeing that they know anything more than anything else. I am currently using NinjaTrader and treating this endeavor with the same seriousness as my primary company so I have decided not to risk a real dime until I know what I am doing.
