Hi all. I am a beginning day trader focusing on stocks. I am currently using the TOS platform but maybe moving to Tradestation if that seems like the better route. Looking forward to learning more and hopefully sharing my successes!

Hi

I signed on a few years ago but "found" it again late last year and since then have realized what an excellent site this is.

I started trading stocks using the CANSLIM method ~ 1996, was successful and then started using it with options which was better - but the method was a lot of work. I joined Optionetics hoping to improve my options knowledge and hoped to learn how to set up "delta neutral" trades - though I learned basic terminology I did not derive much that was useful to real trading - (may be it was my shortcoming). Over time I found out more about option spreads, started trading with a $300 account, had a lot of success with it, and then I got the Elliott wave bug and met a EW guru. On one of whose call my accounts were up two fold in a six month period. Things had come quickly and without a lot of pain - making me oblivious to many of the essentials such as good money management required to be a good trader. Greed and invincibility along with a series of subsequent calls from the EW guru brought my account down to a $few k (no one to blame but me) at this time the other account I was trading was double of what it started out, but my recommendation to take profit was also met with greed and subsequently the same fate as my account around 2012 at which time I first came across Big Mike's...

Well since then had to take a few breaks and have been learning about options and futures. traded forex a bit but nothing has come together yet which is profitable consistently. A number of people have told me I should go back to the options trades I used to do - but to me that is a slow process and requires more capital than forex or futures ( the returns on the spreads were in the 4% to 10% range each cycle of 4 to 6 weeks - sometimes more)...

I have tried many systems and methods and am still working away at finding a system that i can trade day in and day out and make consistent money....

cheers

Hi Everyone

It's a great site and glad to be here. Been studying but wish to put trading into practice by doing demo now. Am interested in currencies, commodities and indices, hopefully more on the first.

Cheers Tommy

Hello BigMike

I found this site one day when looking for publically posted thinkscripts. My style is both trend (Futures) and mean regression (options). Trying to develop consistent habits leading to consistent profits and reduced account volatility. Better tools to identify reliable trends and enter earlier are my holy grail. I regard thinkorswim IVR as the best thing since sliced bread.

Thank You


Hi Mike Thanks for creating your blog. It's been a very rough road for me as a trader. I hope to regroup as you have done and start to consistently become a better trader and make some money along the way. Thanks again!
