Hello all!

I found this forum by stumbling on to Big Mikes youtube channel. After viewing almost all of the webinars I had no choice but to come here and read the forums! There is so much great information here and I am eagerly reading through old threads and taking notes. I will definitely get the elite membership and create a journal here once I am done collecting enough statistics for my own system.

Sincerely,
Studier

Hi, rayjth

I trade stock options and would like to trade futures full time. Spend most of my free time doing research and backtesting ideas. I am a new bloodhound user and will be signing up for elite.

I am new to the forum and not a full time trader, I definitely have other pursuits, like friends and family.
I like trading the ES but want to do it with better accuracy. For me that means better application of statistical indicators. To do this I hope to stay connected with a community of users to gain a better understanding of the trade.
I use NT7 and have about 300 indicators which includes NT's own generic Indicators.
Some of the better ones are from Jurik Research. They make low lag ultra smooth MA's based on fractal mathematics. I am currently working with support and resistance models.
Anyway I hope to find groups that can help me improve my trading.

Hi guys

First of all, many thanks to Mike [RESPECT] and of course to all other contributors in the forum. Its now almost a year since I joined the forum, purchased NT-license and started to build an automated strategies for trading ES. futures.io (formerly BMT)-family has been priceless help in my journey, THANKS!

Few words about me, five years history of day-trading and options, mostly ES and individual stocks. I have pretty good idea how I would like my strategies to work and current focus is to learn how to code it nicely. I have good knowledge in excel/VBA and object-oriented programming in general level. Last year I have focused on C#/.NET to have deeper knowledge of NT and its custom script.

My apologies of being a free rider for this long, I will change that and try to contribute better in the future. Hopefully it will get easier when my own learning curve starts to grow exponentially.

still a newbie


I am not exactly new to trading. I have been buying and selling stocks off and on for 10 years, but I only recently began to try day trading. I have lost a lot of money, then made some, had some too promising success last year, now struggling again, though I have not lost much, yet. I am trying to stop the losses.

I have taken a variety of courses in TA and Elliott Wave. Recently, I bought some indicators from Backtothefuture.com. As far as I can tell, these are useless. They certainly do not live up to the company's promised winning percentages; the work about as well as flipping a coin. I am just looking for a community in which to learn how to do this profitably.
