hello all


Hi folks

I've been tinkering with FX trading (particularly SpreadBetting here in UK) for a few years and have always believed I can make money .. except I do not have the discipline yet to trade discretionary (learnt the hard way).

I was just about to give up on it all when I came across NinjaTrader (and Mirror Trader on FXCM). I have some scripting experience and NinjaTraders strategies and back-testing has re-ignited my interest and belief that maybe there's a living to be had here. Researching NinjaTrader led me to this site and I'm happy to contribute what little I know and to pay for Elite membership to learn from others.

Thanks
tmc

A new beginning

Hey there guys

I'm really excited to have found a forum that welcomes in newcomers. Let me give you a bit of background about myself.

I'm a young married man who has been living hand to mouth for too long. I've never really tried to do anything that I would consider a get rich quick scheme and I know.this isn't one of those either.

Day trading seems to offer a level of financial freedom whilst doing something you love (albeit if you put in the hard work) but besides the financial allure something about trading just drives me crazy in a good way of course. Seeing videos of people live trading win or lose really makes me want to start trading as soon as possible.

Of course I know nothing about the stock market and that's why I was drawn to check out day trading academy and actually have a call with them scheduled in about two hours. I have no problem paying to learn but up to 3K I want to be damn sure about it.

What say you guys? Is there a more effective way to learn that will teach you to read the market and not rely on indicators and software as DTA claim?

Thanks in advance,


D14

Hi everyone

I'm an independent futures and futures options trader since 1989, index options since 1986. My focus is on swing trades for futures, based on price levels and time cycles. I don't use any technical oscillators or indicators other than modified Bollinger bands. I also use futures option strategies (credit spreads, debit spreads) based on implied volatility ranking and modified Bollinger bands for standard deviation analysis.

Here are the markets that I actively trade: E-mini Russell 2000, E-mini SP500, E-mini Nasdaq100, T-Bonds, 10 Yr Notes, $Aussie, Pound, $Canadian, Euro, Yen, Crude, Nat. Gas, Gold, Silver, Platinum, Soybeans, Wheat, Corn, Live Cattle, Lean Hogs

Biggest thing I can say it to check them out here at Big Mikes (now "future.oi"). I have no experience with DTA, but I know most teachers/rooms are not very reproducible (to say it kindly).

The fact is that everybody will have their critics. But look for openness and that they actually trade. I can make thousands of systems that work on back-testing, paper and simulators.

There are a few good "systems" out there, but the most important part is the psychology. "Psychology" doesn't sell well, so you don't here much hype about it. But the reality is that if you train the psychology right, then you can successfully trade just about any system. If you can't do the psychology right, then no system will be successful (and everybody thinks they will be the one who has the right psychology to start off with.)

A good starting point on the psychology is Mark Douglas' Trading in the Zone (you can get the book or audio). But apply what you learn diligently and don't think that your feelings will change the market. Indicators give a probability on what may happen next. One's PandL is not an indicator (though it appears to be the most popular). Therefore trading depending on your PandL or how you feel is ludicrous (but we have all done it.).
(PS I have watched CFRN.net for years and they are open, honest and keep good records. But it may not be your style)

I'm happy to be a part of big mikes trading. I have a lot of success over the years, but nothing that has been consistent. My hope is to get some ideas from the forum to help me finalize my trading ideas. Phsychology plays a huge part of success and I need to improve greatly in that area. My hope is to see the success of others and have that prove beneficial to my own!
