"Vinny E-Mini" - Hi! Been trading 8 years now and I am a Database Programmer

"Vinny E-Mini" - Hi! Been trading 8 years now and I am a Database Programmer. Been working on coding systems... got a pretty sweet setup using a bit of a martingale as well as an anti-martingale money management strategy coded inside a Trend following strategy is my main system... I also like to use Darvas, NTRenko combination to do Dow Theory time projections for reversal locations. I enjoy your site and have been on it many many times and hope to contribute very soon!... here's a picture of my setup on one of my 2 6 screen workstations...

I trade with a semi literal interpretation of the biblical Ecclesiastes 11 investment principles in the first few verses and so therefore trade 7-8 markets simultaneously getting signals from my strategies.

Thanks for having me aboard Mike!

Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi everybody!

Hi!, I'm writing from Spain, 40Km from the Mediterranean Sea.
I've been trading and from some time but my equity curve is like a roller coaster: going up is hard and slow, but going down is sooo easy.
I'm engineer and decided to take another way (I am not a good manual trading!).
For several months I have been looking to statistical and machine learning tools in order to write automatic systems.
Now I'm studing a very advisable MOOC course in called "Analitics Edge", that is Machine Learning with R from MIT University.
Soon, I'll try with a thread in this forum about this topics.

Best regards.

Hi, everyone!

I have been trading for six months, so I am fairly new. I started by trading stocks that made sense to me and did OK, but came to realization, that I had no idea what was going on and what the rules of the game were. I was very good, when I was playing poker in the past, even though I do have an experience of blowing up my account a couple of times. So the search for the rules of the game has become, hence trading education. I signed up for several education courses on stocks, options and futures. My account is very close to flat, so I have no good track record so far.
My reason for joining Big Mike's forum is self-accountability and other trader's insight.
My rules:
* I will trade 2 lots and not risk more that 1% per trade
* I will not follow anyone's trades or use anyone's homework to trade off
* My decisions will be based on auction market theory
* I will only trade /ES
* I will journal all my entries (but will not post entries on this forum). I will post weekly P/L.
* This forum is an amazing source of information on price/volume trading, but I will never forget that Mr. Market is the best teacher after all!!!

Happy trading!
