The government and system do it. access to free information is highly forbidden here so facebook ,twitter,youtube ,etc... are all blocked. they say that low speed internet is sufficient enough ! ( can you imagine a 128 kbps bandwidth that is shared between 10 persons !! )
Good Evening, Friends. I've done my bit to help get Christmas dinner going, and while waiting for the roast beast to appear in all its glory, I took a minute to sign up here. I hope to be able to learn, and to contribute; I'm a semi-retired (still doing some consulting gigs) bank FX sales and trading executive, now working with E-minis, equity options, and equities from the comfort of a home office. I do not trade FX as a retail investor, and have never been tempted to do so. Merry Christmas to those for whom that's appropriate, and best of luck to all here. I'll look forward to participating.
I am not new to this site. Actually I'm a member from 1 year and a half so far, but I haven't post anythig till now. I think that new year it might be a nice timing for start posting. I work in the financial sector but more in the risk managment than in the invesment area. Late˝y I've been playing with some strategies and I've decided to put them to work. I will keep you up to date with my achievements and failures. Best regards to all.
I am a fairly experienced trade in both the ES and CL. I had blown up four accounts ( two of them were 5 figure accounts) before I realized what I was doing wrong. I was constantly jumping from method to method never gaining consistency in anything. I have since realized that there are many ways to trade profitably as far as methods, it is a matter of just getting great at one method that makes sense to you and your individual belief system and gaining consistency within that method. I came across this site researching the School of Trade system and contemplating joining. I am still working on gaining that consistency that I seek so badly but I am working on it and having support from other successful traders will help.
I have been trading mostly the energy complex for about 4 years now.
starting from calendar spreads then moving on to outrights, brent- wti spread
then currencies, es etc .
Have made and lost money, learnt a fair bit about myself and markets in the process.
i look forward to participating in these forums
First, thanks to Mike for starting this forum. Like a lot of folks who have posted before, I have had some good profits and then gave it back and blew out a couple of accounts. I hope to be able to learn from everyone in here and give back some day.
