This is Scott in Raleigh NC. I've been trading for a few years now and I'm still working on solidifying a good trading strategy. I work from home so that I can take care of my disabled wife. This is what brought me to trading in the first place - the need to work from home. If anyone has any trading revelations that they're willing to share please pass them along.
Im a trader wannabe.
I trade stocks and forex.
I use technical system trading, trying to get rid of any discretionary trading.
Sometimes it is tuff to wait for the entry signal when i want to enter NOW.
Hehe, ya well, its getting slowly better.
The trading plan helps i only have to remember not to forget to read it now and then...
I have been trading off and on for thirteen years with emini futures without consistent results. Spent plenty of money on courses. Need to simplify my setups so thought I would see what I can find here to be supportive to my journey. Thank you. I find this forum a little overwhelming so it has delayed my posting here.
I'm new to trading in a winning way! So looking for some help.
I started trading FTSE 100 EOD stuff in 1975, using a ZX80, or 90 I cannot remember which, & taking my data from the financial close of the day issued by the BBC. Paper trading at first, then through a local broker. I lost.
Next I moved on to connecting the ZX to my television, and using EOD data from teletex. I lost.
I got fed up with that, & moved on to options. I lost....heavily.
I'm retired now, & still have the trading bug. I currently, & very recently, started trading Index Futures, paper only, (not so easy to replace a loss when you are retired!) I use a UK online broker, and paper trade using Metatrader. I'm not by nature a scalper, nor do I sleep well if I hold a trade over night.
All & any pointers will be appreciated....if I do not reply too quickly, I'm probably sleeping, or watching one of the many videos available on this site.
Many thanks for taking the time to read the above.
This is my first post. I am a wannabe trader from New Zealand. Presently I am doing the Open Trader course which brings me to Big Mikes. So far the course has been enjoyable and has presented a few light-bulb moments for me. I began trading ASX stocks and did very well prior 2007 , then it all went to double crap as I tried to become a profitable FX trader. Did not loose too much in 6 yrs of trying about 10k i think. So now i am moving back to exchange based trading. Feels good once again to be looking at volumes etc.
