Hi All,
I googled for popular trading forum sites and this came up. It's seems like a pleasant place to be.
Although, I am only here to sell my charting program license which I just posted. It focuses on Volume Spread Analysis.
I feel it's a valid methodology for trading. Yet it is not the normal "indicator" trading such as Stochastics, SMA, Trendline.

I am in another business now and decided to part with the software to recoup my investment.

Best to all,

I've been trading full time for 8 years now. I run a small trading company that does reasonable volume. Sometimes I've posted in another forum but I'm not sure it's been worth the effort so I'd like to try here. There are some few things I know a lot about and many things about which I know nothing.

I hate seeing people get scammed and have no problem giving my opinion about such if asked.

Have just joined the site. Have several years trading stocks, commodities, forex and futures. My main interest these days is quantitative finance. I also like developing and researching investment modelling/backtesting tools.

Good luck to everyone with their trading.

Another Newbie in the Mix

Just wanted to quickly say, I am glad to be here and start learning. My goals (which are very miniscule to some) are:
  • Learn the ins and outs of setting up and sim trade with Ninjatrader
  • Finding an appropriate market to practice on
  • Find a fairly strong trading strategy to try AND stick with it

I know that there is a world of information in this forum just from browsing around. I look forward to participating and making friends.

Hi From Oz

Hi guys,

I am from Australia and would classify myself as an intermediate level trader. I have been trading for approx. 2 years and think of myself as a breakout and trend trader.

I focus predominantly on stocks within my home exchange the ASX - for no other reason than it being within suitable working hours. I am always interested in peoples' ideas and am always happy to discuss any trading strategy, issue or theory.

I guess I am looking to refine my trend/breakout strategies and take my first few steps into the world of day trading (which for some reason I have never been able to properly get into).

Feel free to run anything by me and I look forward to speaking to you all.
