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!
I've been trading more or less since 2000 so ive seen a few things. However im always up for learning something new. I've done all the mistakes in the book (and some i still do them even tho i should know better by now) and I've traded all that moves (...and its liquid enough).
Looking to connect, learn and teach with experienced traders beginners and all in between....
Thanks for reading and Have an awesome day!
I trade CL, ES and NQ weekdays in the morning for a couple hours. Would like to really get consistent in trading in 2016. I have a full time job as a Mechanical Engineer but it looks like work is slowing down next year so I can spend more time learning about trading.
My name is Dan, I'm from Northern California. I'm in my mid 50's and getting ready to retire, and am looking for a way to generate a steady income (I hope). New to futures trading. Took a bond trading course and have had some success. I'm thing it has been more luck than knowledge. One indicator has had great success. (If you would like me to elaborate, let me know.) I use Sierra Charts for futures and TOS for stocks.
I really looking forward to learning from experienced traders and develop a sound system and methodology that will help me succeed. Hopefully I will be able to contribute too!
Hi. A very new beginner to futures.io (not sure I use or post right) and have been trading the /ES for about 6 months with plenty mistakes. I have a near full time job too. On ToS and NinjaTrader. Interested in hearing from experienced traders who genuinely like to help inexperienced traders who have a genuine passion to learn and excel. Mahalo. Hawaii resident here so adjusting to East Coast time has its challenges. LOL.
Hi everyone and thank you Mike i do not know how much or how often i will be in here. I am finishing a study group with a live institutional trader as the teacher after viewing webinars and going live every day not really any time left. I ran across this site when trying ti find information on ofa charting because the teacher has it and it looks good,but i fiund that it is quite expensive and i can not afford it yet. Anyway i am new to sierra charts and figuring that system out and i am also in a self help group and my main goal is to create positive cash flow as i learn. I have been trying since 2003 traded for 5 full years went bust many times and finally found a teacher that is a winner. Like i said i was planning to get information on ofa charting but the site looked good so i thought i would join and maybe something would come of it.I do not know my way around a computer as well as i should but i am still trying and i will talk to you guys later hope you all have a great trading week.
I took your suggestion and got Mark Douglas' book and nearing the end I'm only more excited about getting started. Had I known psychology was such a huge part of day trading I would have begun learning about trading much earlier in life as psychology is a passion of mine.
I have held off on giving 3000 dollars to DTA (at least for the time being) because I firmly believe I can learn the information needed right here on these forums and through real life experience.
But I do need some help guys! Where do I learn the absolute bare bone essentials of day trading? Will some of the webinars include a "trading for dummies" so to speak? What I mean by essentials is, terminology, basic theory etc etc. What platform do I start using and how? Things like this.. If the elite membership will help then sign me up!
I hope the people in this community can really help a fellow aspiring trader succeed in making this a passion of mine.
