Steep learning curve

Hi,

I joined Big Mike's forum several days ago, and I already found very interesting indicators and thoughts on trading. As a trader I am just starting (not live yet). Recently downloaded NT and use this in combination with IB.

Interested in automated trading strategies to outperform the LIBOR . I live in the Netherlands and hope to gain and share knowledge.

Tom

Hello!


Hi everyone,

I started learning about trading about 8 months ago. I started with binary options, then learned about forex, then just recently (few months) I started looking at futures.

I haven't gone live or anything, as I'm conservative, and only risk capital when I'm 100% sure, I have a winning ratio.

I have lots to learn, and will scour the futures.io (formerly BMT) forums looking for the best 'fit' for my trading style (which I don't have yet)!

Look forward to interacting and meeting everyone here..!

Thanks!

Nice to meet you. I've heard good things about IB. Is Ninja Trader independent? I mean, if you're using it with IB, who's service does it fall under? I'm used to a trading platform being sponsored or dependent on a certain company in order to download market data. How does NT work?

Hi,

n2mu, they are independent. The TWS API supports NT:

Guess this link answers your question : http://ibkb.interactivebrokers.com/node/1978, there is also a thread https://futures.io/ninjatrader/33624-newb-questions-about-ninjatrader-ib-interactivebrokers.html .

Kind Regards,

Hello From A Former Trading Forum Addict

Per Big Mike's request as my first post on the site I'm stopping by to introduce myself.

My name is Jim, I'm a self-taught trader who's been trading for over a decade... and has been relatively successful for the past several years. I made the mistake early in my "trading career" of hanging out in the wrong forums (almost any trading forum is the wrong one) and filling my head with a lot of nonsense. It wasn't until I quit forums completely cold turkey after the first year or so and started down my own educational journey that I was able to weed out what worked in trading and what didn't.

The reason I'm here today is because I came across the futures.io (formerly BMT) site and was impressed by Big Mike's effort and the efforts of most of the members here to offer what seems to be one of the better trading forums online. I'm at a point in my trading where I think I have something to give back and am here to interact with those who share a passion for trading, offer some friendly advice to those who are less experienced than me, and yes, even to learn a thing or two. Even though I've been able to be consistently profitable I certainly don't think I know it all and would love to continue to take my trading to even loftier levels.

I look forward to making some new friends here and helping out whoever I can at the same time.

JerseyJim

Hi. I'm Gene U. I have been working on day trading futures for a couple of years now. I have taken classes from OTA (Online Trading Academy) and have been in a couple of trading rooms, primarily Larry Levin's rooms. I'm a member of a couple of trading user groups (one of them led me here). I have been a member of the Denver Trading Group for a few years. DTG brings in nationally known traders for 3-4 hour talks. They have been very good talks for the most part.

I use Tradestation primarily as my trading platform. That's what I used during the OTA courses. I'm mainly trading NQ (the Nasdaq) and CL (Crude Oil) currently though I have also traded gold and ES.

I'm always trying to learn more. So that's why I joined Big Mikes when I learned about it.
