Hi there,

My name is Kim. I have been trading for a few years - futures only - mainly CL, TF, GC and NG. I still consider myself a beginner as I have not been able to achieve the consistency required to achieve a steady income from trading. Just recently I joined a new company and chart room that has a unique approach to the market and trading. I feel like I have had a bit of a break through with this new system. I look forward to increasing my knowledge by regularly visiting this forum.

My trading life...

Hi all,

I have been trading on and off for 14 years. Only in the last 3 years have I really devoted myself to it. I have traded Aussie stocks, US stocks, US stock options, futures, warrants, forex, forex futures, gold, crude. Not much I haven't tried. Now I exclusively trade the ES and US stock options. I seriously underestimated the work required to be a consistently profitable trader. However, I am happy I did start the process, it has been an extremely tough journey, banging my head against a wall until I'm almost ready to give up, then trying something else. My consistency is still patchy, but I'm so close I can smell it.

Here's to all of us improving together!

Aloha from Hawaii

JCHAWAII here. I live on the North Shore of Hawaii, been living the dream for 50 years here (they haven't caught me yet). I make surfboards, surf a lot, have a great family and for the last few years have been getting up at 3 am (that really sucks) to trade futures. getting better all the time but still spotty.. Made a 180 ticks on CL today but those days are rare and I usually give it back to the market later on...lol

...still a journeyman trader but just like the one guy, I can smell success coming..lol

Hi. I'm programmer with a primary interest in forex. Looks like I'm going to find this place pretty interesting.
Traded since 09 with a long break from 2011 to August of this year.
Started with stocks, moved to options, then forex, and fell apart with futures Summer 2010. Forex is my home for now due to its capital flexability and available API's (my primary forex broker made a free one).

Hi.
I live in town. We should hook up.
I am in the NorthShore 3to4x a week. Brunch thru lunch is a good time for me. Or hit me up in town.
No other kanakas here active.

I trade CL as well. Mostly opening to NY lunch.
