I have been trading for only a year. About 1200 hrs of screen time in over the last 12 months. I have been all over the map, Daily to 5m. Looking for a fresh outlook and some consistency. Frankly I am sick of looking at charts and need some ideas.

There are old traders, there are bold traders, but there are no old, bold traders. Quip stolen from the aviation community, but just as pertinent. Indeed. Watching and waiting.

Hello Everyone , Hi Mike Great Forum that you have here . I got introduced to trading early on fresh out of high school working as a runner at the CBOE. fond memories of getting cursed out by brokers and pit bosses for daydreaming or not moving fast enuff lol. and even though I learned a lot, trading left a big impression on me and was always in the back of my mind sadly I couldn't appreciate it then as I do now.But since life has a way of making you humble and wiser & hopefully both it is an honor to be a part of this forum with many resources and like minded traders. Ive recently switched over to NinjaTrader from Mt4 I enjoy scalping the 1m charts, looking forward to more education, more consistency and more profitability. May you all be blessed with many happy and profitable trading days !
