This is my first time joining a forum. I've never placed a trade live or SIM in my life. However, for the last 6 month it's all I've been reading about. Incredibly interesting. PA intentionally seduced me, but of late I've been reading up on Elliott Wave and Gartley (Gartley is fasinating). Have not read Suri's book yet but it will be the next one after Grimes.

Just having fun at this point cruising around the site, bouncing around from one Webinar to another. The initial $100 has paid for itself already!

Many thanks for all the information and allowing a newbie, such as myself, membership into such a specialized high- level sight.

Hello Guys,

Nice to meet fellow traders. It's sad that this is my first post and I want to whine about my FXCM account got terminated for no reason at all.

Its so frustrating when you cannot execute an order while in the middle of a volatile trading opportunity because suddenly your account was restricted.

Anyway, I hope new traders won't experience this unfortunate event and beware with FXCM!

Hell, my name is Bob and I am new to trading... Not sure I can even say that, as I haven't even started yet. I am reading, watching webinars, scouring this forum and planning on starting Al Brooks training soon.
