Been trading for only about a year but realize I need a better plan and from what I have seen so far, it looks like this forum has the right attitude to help me do that. I dont have that much to give back right now but love to help if I can. We all need to share to better our odds against the big boys. Thanks for putting this together, Mike.

Hi

Hi all,

Just found Mike's site today and I am enjoying the read. I've been trading P/T for around 3 years but still working on being consistently profitable. Like most people, I have my good days and my bad days. I work full time so trading has to be done after work hours. I look forward to conversing with you all.

Cheers,
Pete

Welcome!

Here's the link to Wizards Den. It includes a .zip file of all the indicators you'll need & 2 .xml chart templates that need to be manually moved to your NinjaTrader6.5/templates/chart folder.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Great Site

I'm just another old guy who is self taught on trading futures and using computers. I used TradeStation for half a dozen years. Learned to use Easy Language. Liked the software didn't like them as my broker. Started using Ninja Trader about a year ago, learned enough "C" to hack out simple indicators. Stumbled across this site , really looks like a good resource for learning.

Welcome,

I felt the same way and moved away from TS, took a few years before I found NT.

Beginner needs help

Hi Everybody: Just joined today. Using Tradestation. Beginner, too scared to trade real money.
Could use guidance to help me overcome fear. Need downloads that work well and will be able to encourage.

Thanks
