To my complete disbelief I have been a member of these forums for 5 years now, and never made a post. Mirror of my personality? Quite the contrary, although I realize the facts are against me.
I am a part time trader from the Netherlands, mainly trading the FDAX. I use the forums for gathering (general) information and inspiration. I am completely convinced trading is a personal journey, and that's why reading posts from similar minds is just plain informative and above all : fun.
I got inspired by Futurestrader71 and his methodology about a year ago, and never looked back since.
So, there you have it, my maiden post, thanks for reading, and have a great day.
I am new to the forum and new to trading as well. I am learning trading Forex and Indices on Nadex and found this forum to have alot of valuable information when searching for certain topics on Google. My main focus has been on learning about Order Flow as well as teaching myself to learn candle patterns on pretty much naked charts. I am here to learn the basics and surround myself with a new world of excellent traders that I can take little nuggets of wisdom from.
Thank you for having me in this forum, I am a newbie trying to learn and to be succeed in forex trading.
Are the strategies here which I read mostly related with stocks/futures, also suitable for forex trading?
Anyway I am sure I'll be able to learn things here.
I'm a stay at home mom. My husband is a PM at a smallish fund, so I've got a lot of lingo and concepts down. Perhaps it's pride, perhaps it's curiosity, but I believe I could do what he does. Well not exactly. But I want to try; I've recently developed an itch to try my hand at trading.
I posted my trade journal on the forum, but apparently I can't link to it because I don't have 5 posts.
Basically, I'll be developing a system that fits my schedule. Proving that it works, via paper-trading/sim, and proving that I can manage risk/emotions. Then if everything goes according to plan, I'll be opening a live account and trading the system. I'd certainly love to hear help/suggestions along the way. So please don't be shy.

I am from the Netherlands. Began getting interested in trading to try and supplement income and see if I was any good at it. I have been working from a demo SP500 account from the last few weeks but still trying to find my way. Stumbled across this site and i am so glad i did. Looking forward to exploring everything on offer here and I am already seriously considering becoming an elite member.
