Hope all is lovely traders and soon to be new friends Looking to gain more insight into winning FX strategies that can be automated via the MT4 trading platform. I'm into price action trading, Fibonacci levels and automated Renko based Expert Advisors. Hoping the Pros here are willing to share ideas and trading strategies that make big gains

I'm a fulltime trader.
I've been trading the EUR/USD ( 6E Future ) for 3 years now and my trading timeframe is the 5 min chart.
I live in Europe and my trading hours are just between 8 am and 1 pm Central European Time.
As I'm a price action trader, I don't use any indictors or oscillators apart from the volume and the EMA20. My way of trading is much affected by Lance Beggs.
If there is anybody around with a similar way of trading, just let me know.
I´m in market since 1995 first in stocks after futures. I take all this time alternating trading to my job and start few moths ago with NinjaTrader and order flow´s world. First, I was in local market and now I move to US and forex market .
My name is Darren Humphries,, I am an Aussie living in Toowoomba which is a decent size city in Queensland.
I am an IT engineer and pilot for the largest John Deere dealership in Australia.
Am 48 years old this year and to be totally honest am sick of working for the man and want to control my life a little more in terms of how I spend my time and how I make money.
Like everyone on this site I have immersed myself in the pursuit of a profitable and realistic trading setup.
Spent the last months reviewing the different trading platform on offer and also looking at my options with rgds to Brokers in Australia.
I am a rank beginner and do not have a live account yet.
At this point I am still trying to decide which market to trade.
Specifically interested in trading an instrument that supports tick charts natively as I believe this form of charting offers many advantages over time based charts - especially with regards to identifying the entries/exits of professonal traders.
Look forward to participating however I can and thank everyone in advance for the wealth of knowledge on the site.

I live in northern CA and have been trading options primarily on stock indexes for about a year now. Planning to start trading futures soon. After having gone through some of the posts/webinars, there seems to be a wealth of information available on this forum. Glad I joined futures.io (formerly BMT). Will become an elite member today. Looking forward to participating in the discussions.

I'm extremely new to all of this. I thought long and hard about signing up with one of the many academies out there. I'm glad I found this site before I committed to one of them. I'd like to learn how to become a trader and then potentially turn my knowledge into a viable source of income. I don't need to be filthy rich, I would just like to one day be in position where I'm making enough money to live comfortably.
I'm currently a student. Tuition is expensive and with that comes the high cost of student loans and the debt that awaits me post graduation. As a Philosophy major I understand that its not a very lucrative field unless I become a Ph.D. and go into academia. I need more options than that and at the very least I hope I learn enough here to give me that.

I am like @dhumphri on the previous page -- late 40's, a beginner, looking at platforms and tools, and ready to stop working for the man. Tried that before with an online business in the mid-2000's right before the recession. Bad timing.
I live in Los Angeles. My career of late has been about process and workflows. So I'm keen on measuring my progress in terms of how well I set up and follow processes and not in terms of reaching $$ goals. Easier said than done.
I'm also a musician, focused on jazz.

I'm very new at this and I hope to learn from many of you guys. I started my first trade on March 30 2015, yea... that's how new I am. I made $2059 on my first week. I started trading with GE, PBR and THCZ. I thought to myself wow that was easy and felt like I was on cloud nine. It wasn't until the second week I lost over $15k on one trade. yea, THCZ kicked my ass. I saw it drop to .07 and panicked and sold off for a loss and can you believe the damn thing recovered back to the .20+ cents. I have been trying to re-coop my loses. I'm now -4k, finally getting close to getting out of the hole. What I hope to get out of this forum is knowledge and lots of it. I don't understand everything about charts and what to look for . If it makes any sense I kinda deal with PBR, THCZ and AUY right now because I kinda know or get the feel on how they move. I know that this is't the best way to trade but it's all I know. I would like to know how you guys figure out when to get in and jump out by reading charts. Anyways.... I don't want to ramble on but I hope to get to know everyone and learn from many of you guys.
