Glad to be here...

Thanks for having me guys..I can see from browsing thru the forum this is a very positive place and I look forward to contributing in the future. My trading journey has been a slow patient one, of learning, watching, paying for education, reading, practicing, etc. My curiosity for the markets developed after the tumble into the recession a few year back and watching the pain that my older family members and friends were going through with their retirement accounts. I was inspired to take control of my future...I had some initial "lucky" success and realized that it could not be that easy. The process has been a lot slower than I expected...but that is OK because I have developed a lot a patience for this game, something I wish I had more of on other aspects of my life. I am currently developing my trading plan and mostly paper trading to find a time frame that suits me. Thanks to everyone for their contributions - I look forward to adding to the discussion.

Just another newb

Greetings everyone,

Since paper trading in high school I have always had a fascination for trading. I currently however have minimal (average joe) experience with some stock purchases, index based ETF and mutual funds. I am now planning on getting seriously into trading and fueling this passion. My professional background is software development and architecture as well as information security (the risk management aspect should be handy in this new endeavor).

I now have surface knowledge of ETF, Forex, Futures, etc. Currently, I am focusing my efforts into really understanding what I am about to do with intricate details. I am learning about value vs growth stocks, fundamental analysis and technical analysis techniques and all the indicators available, etc. I have been reading information from many web sites and started to read some fantastic library books as well.

I have toyed a lot with quite a few pieces of software (both desktop and mobile), so far my favorite finds are ninjatrader, the thinkorswim app and barchart.

I will be taking a slow approach and master the subject and tools first then formulate strategies that I will validate via paper trading. Only when this is complete will I start my real portfolio. Therefore, this should be a long and hopefully fruitful journey!

Any and All advice will be much appreciated.

Thanks for this fantastic resources Big Mike and looking forward to learning from and contributing to the community!

- Mike

Micro trend trading

Hi

New to trading. Have developed an intra-day micro-trend approach to EUR/USD that's proving very profitable in demo. Plan to trade live in Jan, starting small.

New to trading. Have developed an intra-day micro-trend approach to EUR/USD that's proving very profitable in demo. Plan to trade live in Jan, starting small.

hello can you show me your micro- trend approach - and what about the big trend - you must know before you enter major trend and risk of the day that you can handle or your account will be losing before you know it - we have to know what is the current day trend not what the news trend and forget about news from cnbc Bloomberg when trading them bulshit and make you creasy - what the chart and major pivot are tell are true then what the tv story

Hope I help
thanks

indicators conversion and modefication


I do have indicators from all kind of companies
if they are member know how to convert them I will discuss them one by one
also latter we can make them into strategy

If I have team to develop and modify indicators ATM strategy for NINJA that do not let place stop above and stop below market with the ATM unless you do it manually as this is the limitation of the ATM only one stop or stop limit
Ninja do not answer this ? this is good for news time trader or before break out happen - or when the marker get squeeze and you want to place stop buy stop sell when a channel developing but as soon as one get trigger the open stop must move to protect your entry in fast moving market it can be very hard to control by hand moving the stop the left open

I can explain in more detail on Skype eli.arilei
