Hi all,

I've been registered a while now, so forgive my lateness please.

I've traded on & off for several years now, got lulled in to a false sense of security about my abilities during 2010 ish, hard to lose that year

Since then I've carried on trying to learn TA when time allows, time appears to be a big problem of mine, when work dries up and I have time to get back in the swing, things start to "click" only for me to find out I've slid backwards down the learning curve the next time work slacks off, I suppose I'm gradually getting there but like many feel if it was all I did I'd "get it" a lot quicker, such is life, keep on keeping on!

Hi everyone. My name is Josh and I am from the US. I have been trading for the past 9 years or so and just moved to futures from forex earlier this year. Over the years I have tried pretty much every trading approach imaginable but finally came to the realization that simpler is better so with that in mind I only trade cocoa, sugar and soybean oil contracts and trade using a handful of well placed candlestick patterns on the 15/30 min time frames. I trade using TOS, commissions are a little high, but its a great trading platform for me.

I look forward to participating in this great forum.
