I trade mainly automated Forex on 3 different trade platforms. I've traded automated for 5 years and have an engineering background. I live in the US but I travel outside the US frequently to work with other advanced automated traders.
Hey guys I am a senior at Arizona State where I study economics. I absolutely love trading and have been building an understanding of the markets, fundamental, and technical analysis for 3 years. I have been paper trading for a year and love options and futures. I opened up a futures account with Apex Trader a week ago and I am trading 1 lots of the /NQ using volume profile, chart action, and reading the tape. Its without a doubt a completely different experience trading with real money but I love it. Risk management is definitely key.
I have an 1987 Buick Grand National, 23# of boost and alcohol injection. I love beer, hiking, my dog, and delicious food.
I am a professional software developer working in financial industry, I was fascinated by financial market since 2006, I can only trade part-time due to my busy full time job, but I still managed to dedicate some time to study and follow market, I have experienced several up-downs and have slowly recovered my loss and increased my account. I just found a week ago, this is great website for our traders, I am sure I can definitely learn a lot of things from people. I will definitely contribute my share as much as I can.
I am glad to meet you here !

Hello all and especially "Big Mike"...and yes I initially made a free member login more than 100 days ago. I did look around way back then...but, "life" takes over and things get pushed to the back burner and is there is ton of info to sort through. So, here's my introduction post; I am "no day-trader" today...but maybe a few years down the line that will change. Yes, I do own stocks, mutual funds, etc. and been doing that for awhile and it has paid off in the long run...so not completely ignorant to the market. I now have some time to really sort through this info and get my short terms goals together as for as what I want from this forum. I short term, since in order to reach those long term goals one has to have a logical and realistic path of short term goals, at least in my opinion. Anywho, I'd like to thank "BigMike" for the opportunity and the free access. At the very least, I can get my feet wet. And thanks to all the other contributors of the forum for simply sharing the info I'm sure each and every one of you has put the time in to gather/build/experience.
Hi everyone. I am new to trading and just trying to soak up and process as much information as possible. Some days I feel overwhelmed and wonder what the best way is to cut through all the noise. I know it is like anything else that is new, it will just take time. Anyone who comes out and tells me that there is no magic bullet or indicator already has my trust! I am just interday trading for now, but if I eventually figure it out, I can see a second career. Looking forward to learning.
Hi all, I'm non-professional trader, mainly intraday futures on index, based on graph and volume patterns,
would like to fully automate my trading as it is already mechanical (no thinking at all) so approaching NinjaTrader7
I installed NinjaTrader7 free demo version,
how can I add the FIB (future on FTSEMIB - Italian market) as instrument ?? which instrument tool configuration and symbol map should I use?
I've worked indirectly in the stock market for some years now (I provide technical support for the software Sentient Trader). Until recently however I've only really dabbled in actual trading using cyclical analysis which I've become accustomed to through my work.
Now that I've acquired some more experience I'm eager to share what I've learnt and learn from other people's techniques.
My style of trading involves analysing the markets to find cycles and create trade opportunities. Oddly enough this means that until I started joining and sharing on forums I hadn't even heard of basic concepts like support levels or resistance levels!
