Quick intro


Hi Everyone.
I've just joined the community, which I found while researching my way into the day trading field.

I'm a Program Manager in Computer industry, used to be a programmer (and now just program for my fun, as I miss the hands-on ). I have a small portfolio of mainly Bonds & EFTs, not in the US, and now looking for learning the new Day Trading field so I can have:
- some more "spare" money for saving (kids are getting older all the time )
- financial security (in the Hi-Tech field, you are getting "too old" way too soon )
- learning new things - always love this.

My current direction, is to trade Futures, mainly the indexes, but nothing is yet final (still learning, so I can set my plan).
Been using a 30 days trail as a simulator, but I now clearly see that I'll need to find a longer way to train using simulation (before moving the real money). Any idea how to do it, will be highly appreciated.

Any tips, books, tools I can have to start learning, will be just great.

BTW - is it acceptable to open a Journal just for simulation trading (as I will love hear comments on this phase too)?

Thanks,
Ilan

Hi Ilan and Welcome to futures.io (formerly BMT)!

Of course it is acceptable to create a journal thread for simulation trades only as long as you clearly state that these trades are SIM only.

So just proceed and create a thread with your journal, and you'll see that you will get some comments, advice and suggestions rather sooner than later.

Hi Everyone,

I'm a programmer from Canada, and after playing the markets many years ago, I've decided to dabble back in again.

I'm currently playing with NinjaTrader, and coding my own indicators and strategies. (I love learning new languages and interfaces).

I hope to be a contributor to the forums, but right now, not sure what I can offer other than lurk right now.

Hopefully I can share a few POV's that someone might find useful.

PF
