Last four years of my life I have been walking on the rocky road of learning. I went through; Fibonacci, Elliott waves, MA, Divergences, Correlations…and so on like every beginner. Gained some knowledge I could share but I think you are far more advance here. But I still believe that I could be of benefit to this trading community. This is awesome side thanks to Mike and all of you guys
Glad to be here
Just arrived to this forum looking for neural networks oriented trading systems, I've been trading for the last 20 years.
I've been working in trading desks of big investment banks as techie for the last 15 years, I've worked in London, New York, Tokyo etc... Now in middle east enjoying the beach the good weather and the tax free status.
I'm European but I lived abroad too long to consider from anywhere, I gathered enough capital to get retired soon probably in a remote place in Asia and I'll have plenty of time to shorten my trading timeframes.
I've been trading mostly on larger timeframes based on macro/fundamental signals with good results.
My expertise is on the technical side, programming neural networks and big data, I hope I'll be able to help and learn with you guys,
The following user says Thank You to dalamar for this post:
Hi, I'm new to trading and finding it very exciting at the moment but have lots to learn, I'm from the UK which am now finding is a little trickier to trade as it seems I'm limited to spread betting and forex...so anyone who can offer suggestions about trading futures in UK would be a help.
I've been trading for many years with mixed results. I focus on various types of option strategies.
I work part time, so can't trade much during the day.
I'm hoping to learn from other people's success and to share some of my experience..
I have a full time desk job, but I've been trying to learn how to trade for the past four years or so in order to transition into something that I believe will be more interesting and enjoyable. I'm not consistently profitable, so I guess that means I'm still a beginner.
I learned the basics of trading by taking courses offered by Investools, but lacked the discipline to consistently follow the rules. Also, the option trading techniques taught by Investools involved a lot of complexity and were difficult for me to master.
I then tried gap fading techniques like those promoted by Scott Andrews of Master the Gap, but found that approach to be unsuited to my personality. I wanted to learn a more discretionary, "hands on" approach to trading.
After that, I spent some time learning how to trade using Ichimoku indicators because I read that they produced a high success rate. But before rolling out a trading strategy using Ichimoku indicators, I found Big Mike's Trading Forum and was exposed to price action trading. Price action trading seems to offer the "edge" that I have been looking for. So now, before spending real money, I am working very hard to learn as much as I can about price action trading and I am developing a trading plan that I intend to begin paper trading within the next few months. My intention is to use some of the price action scalping techniques taught by Bob Volman in my preferred market (the Emini S&P 500) while continuing to study the three book series by Al Brooks.
