I am Taylor. I have been investing for about 22 years and actively trading for about 13 years.
I am pretty much self taught via reading and constant trading of various forms. Trying to determine what works and what does not work. I have developed my own beliefs and strategies about the markets over the years.
I love to trade and I am pretty serious options trades but also trade equites and play around in the Forex markets from time to time.
I am hoping to get some wisdom from some forum members on ThinkScript for TOS. I have used Strategy Desk for years but now want to migrate and it a learning curve. The good news is that I studied programing in college so once I know the full API I should be able to make some progress.
My name is Kenneth, a Belgian Guy, 24 years old, and now living in Montréal, Canada for the moment.
I am a complete beginner in trading and hope I can learn very fast as I want to go to the market as soon as possible.
I will trade only one market, and try to specialise in the ES emini futures market.
If anybody here is also from Montreal (or surroundings), I would be happy to meet them in real life and discuss
I am from Finland and trade futures and stocks. I used to do my investing by studying company fundamentals, but I started to study technical analysis because fundamental analysis didn't keep me from losing during the downturns of 2000 and 2008. At first my efforts of applying technical analysis to stocks didn't amount to much because most books about the subject are garbage. I was studying Computer Science at the time too and took a course called Artificial Intelligence. It occurred to me to try some of stuff that I learnt there and apply it to the prediction of stock price movements and my results improved. They were not great at first, but in time I got better, and now I am doing really well.
welcome kenneth! i live in usa. as a beginner, imho, you could not have found a better site to learn, ask questions, be pointed to answers, et cetera. read the forumss. it can become overwhelming at times due to all the great info and support from futures.io (formerly BMT) members. ☮
