Hi Everyone

My name is George and I'm a 13 year trader that trades the forex full time. I have moderated a few forum sites and enjoy sharing new ideas, systems, indicators and my experiences. I've developed several forex systems mostly in metatrader and never sold a forex system. I believe in sharing and giving away things for free.

I have mentored around 30 traders in the past for free and most are now full time traders. My belief is that the best way to learn how to trade is to find someone that is already successful and find out how he thinks and learn everything he does.

Thanks for allowing me to join your forum and I hope I can be an asset to this group.

Humans More Related To Orangutans Than Chimps, Study Suggests

This is Jack. Jack lives in Bali Zoo, which is halfway on the road from Denpasar to Ubud. Jack lost his prior job in Jakarta, because he was not well behaved. One of his favourite occupations is throwing melons and papayas at visitors.

ScienceDaily (June 18, 2009) — New evidence underscores the theory of human origin that suggests humans most likely share a common ancestor with orangutans, according to research from the University of Pittsburgh and the Buffalo Museum of Science. Reporting in the June 18 edition of the Journal of Biogeography, the researchers reject as "problematic" the popular suggestion, based on DNA analysis, that humans are most closely related to chimpanzees, which they maintain is not supported by fossil evidence.

Let us come back to Jack. He is sitting in his enclosure and is basically bored most of the day. Whenever a visitor approaches, he throws some of his melons and papayas. He throws at everybody, although he should focus on women in high heels, retired Western tourists and little children for maximum enjoyment. Most of the time he also hits too early, before the visitors can even get close to him. He's a bad timer. Actually he reminds me a typical trader - he does not prepare his hunt, is undisciplined and lacks the patience to wait for a rewarding target.

I don't identify with Jack, but we might have common forebears and common instincts. Now you know that I am not a creationist.

Hello Traders,

I have been trading off and on for about 4 years and have basically treaded water. I purchased Ninjatrader because I like the idea of autotrading a routine that I created. I believe I am on the right track to developing an automated strategy and am looking for more indicators and ideas.

The buzz around this forum seems like a nice place to increase my education. If/when I find some success, I'll be glad to share my knowledge. For now though, I still consider myself a rookie.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and information. I look forward to being able to contribute some value to the cause.

Mike, nice job and thank you for allowing me in.

Hi Mike.

I am a new trader and I'm lucky to find this treasure trove of trading info in one place.
I came to your website by accident and I'm glad I found it. Since I'm new to trading
I'll probably be asking more questions than making useful contributions to this forum,
I hope that is OK.

Gday All from Down Under,

I found this site through Ninjatrader which I use for my charting platform. I trade the Aussie Share Price Index Futures and I am a Prop Trader with an Australian Firm.

Hey, 21 years old, been trading for the past year with mixed success, finished college last semester and decided to stay with trading on my own for now. I've been putting in some long hours to get where I want to be, but I have much more work to get there. It's been a fun and rewarding journey so far, hope to share some of it here!
