I have never traded. Planning my isa investments at the mo. Important to understand Tax implications as part of your overall tactics. Remember its not what you earn, its what you get to keep that matters.

For trading I try to learn as much as I can and will start slowly, will share my thoughts with interested parties.
Keep an open mind and give yourself time to understand your subject well.

Hope it helps.

Hello all, I am a complete beginner in regards to trading, but i am scared to become an elite member if i cant understand the webinars etc etc

Is it worth becoming an elite member? Will i be able to learn and eventually trade if i watch all webinars from start to finish? I am a very methodical person and need to start at square one in order to grasp a concept. Please private message me if you have any input.

im also not sure where i should be posting this so i apologize if this question has been asked already

Thanks for the welcome

i am brand new to trading, I have been sim trading for 2 weeks with ninja trading and reading everything I can get my hands on. Read my first forum yesterday and have started Adam Grimes free course..The Art of Science of Trading. The sim trading is getting easier as I understand more. Really enjoying the learning curve.

New-ish to trading

I have only traded stocks. I haven't done enough research to trade anything else. I am currently day trading stock using technical analysis. I haven't been able to find enough useful information on the internet that has resonated with me regarding stock trading. I read good thing about this site. Hopefully I pick up a few things from (formerly BMT). I am giving myself 3 months to try my hand at live trading and evaluate from there. I'd like to thank everyone in advance for any guidance and anything else I am going to learn

Hi everyone!

After spending 2 years for studying, learning and blew up my account, i really want progress to reach my goals.
I trade the ES and the FESX essentially using order flow stuff and auction market theorie.
Now i'm working on the psychology which is my principal problem, i watched several webinars with Brett N. Steenbarger and Rande Howell and they helped me a lot so i have to practice again again in live condition.

I know i'm on the right place to learn on (formerly BMT).
Good trade.
