The Turn Around Artist

From the few threads I have read all seem to share having lost capital in our own accounts. I am determined to stop the financial hemorrhaging. Lately I am on the right track, however I have lots to learn. How to be brave and keep the stops at reasonable distances. Some days I am good. Other days I let my trading losses get the better of me. I hope to use this forum to collect ideas. Naturally we are all different and will execute differently. All the best. Jim

Thanks Big Mikes

I am 1 year old (give or take) here at Big Mikes. I have not participated much at all simply because I'm super busy learning. I do however "like" post that have been helpful to me.

I want to say Thank you to Big Mikes and members because you're truly my "go-to" resource for research, inspiration and indicators. Of all the thousands of dollars I have spent thus far on "education", this is investment has given me the most bang for the buck.

Once my system is in place and I'm trading successfully, I fully intend to give back to the BM community by participating more in post.

Until then....Thanks Mike and Thanks members for your post.

Hi,

Been trading spot Forex for a few years - Slowly getting the mental aspects under control, so very slowly starting to become profitable.
Joined here to look at futures, and find out practical details so I can explore them in the future.

New BMT

Hi All

I'm new to trading I've been training on a CQG sim for six months and I have taken a course with Amplify Trading in London, recently my attention has been drawn to order flow and tape reading and to facilitate this interest I have switched platforms from CQG to Ninja Trader and Jigsaw tools. I'm focusing on scalping and I am very much a beginner.

I became aware of futures.io (formerly BMT) and Jigsaw whilst searching for information on time and sales finding webinars on you tube, I've found the theory on order flow rang true with me and as I am no genius when it comes to technical and fundamental analysis I've found the concepts on order flow analysis easier make sense to me.

I've never traded with live funds so I am reluctant to give any advice on any subject concerning trading but I'm happy to share what I learn along the way and I expect at this stage of my trading career I will learn a lot more from you than you can learn from me. As I progress I hope I will be successful enough to be around long enough to return to others what I learn from you.
